A Taste of Argentina, Review of Casa Mediterrania in Puerto de la Cruz

The empanadas (little pies) and the queso provolone were the show stealers though. The provolone was a cheesy feast, with a soft mound of savoury melted cheese which we scooped up with thin, fried cheesy triangles. Don’t have your cholesterol checked after this one. The empanadas were bigger than the usual tomato and tuna ones you tend to find in restaurants on Tenerife. Bigger and far, far better. These Argentinian empanadas had more in common with Cornish pasties, wonderfully spicy Cornish pasties. Just writing about them makes me want another encounter… pronto.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
