In this post we would like to tell you about Casa Josefina restaurant. A place where we would bring a friend which is visiting us in Gran Canaria. This Canary restaurant is specialized in two dishes: the roasted leg of lamb and the chickpeas. They have also in their menu salad, cheese, croquettes, squids, etc. but you can not come here and do not try the lamb leg so as the chickpeas. It is like visiting a burger and order salad.
Casa Josefina Restaurant
Once you arrive here, you will realize that Casa Josefina is a very authentic place. It is only frequented by local people. It could be that there are a few tourists which know this place, but it is very strange if so. You will see that in its decoration they have some tiles with funny sentences. They have also different kind of hanging gadgets, plants, etc.
Its famous lamb leg
The lamb leg is cooked in the oven and it comes with fresh French fries. Both are incredible yummy. One lamb leg for two people is too much, but it doesn’t matter and don’t leave the restaurant without tasting it. The food which you don’t finish, they prepare it for you to take away without any extra cost. The best option is to order it for sharing between 3/4 people. In this wat you can try the chickpeas and some Canary cheese as a starter. When we go here we usually eat the lamb with a small jar of the red house wine.
Concerning the desserts, you should try the gofio mousse. The gofio is a basic food for the Canarian people made from milled cereals. We have spoken about it in our local food section. In the same way, if you are ordering some coffee, in the Canary Islands we usually drink it with regular milk and also with condensed milk. We call it “leche y leche” (milk and milk coffee). Check it below:
Casa Josefina prices
Considering that you are eating good quality food and you are not being cheated. Let’s say that the restaurant is quite affordable. When we went last time, we ordered the lamb for two, dessert, coffee, water and wine and it costed € 22 per person. Which means that it is a good price. Please take in mind that we had lamb for another lunch at home since we took away what we left in the plate. In case that we had been 3 people, we would have paid less than 15 euros.
