A restaurant in Fataga: El Albaricoque
El Albaricoque has a wide range of Canarian food and it is located in an idyllic location in Gran Canaria. We have tried here the Home salad which comes with lots of fruit and vegetables. Some of them of Fataga.
We also wanted to order the varied croquettes, as they seemed original. They make them from local watercress, blood sausage, Spanish ham and fish. You can see between some of them the color difference. It comes with vegetables from the garden and natural fries.
We also tried the vegetable stew that includes watercress. Something quite Canarian and here they make it delicious. Also, when the winter weather arrives, it feels like eating it.
The desserts. Our favorite meal in El Albaricoque
For dessert we have tried the pineapple mouse and the pumpkin pancakes with apricot jam from Fataga. No doubt the pancakes won!
We always stop here to eat when we are around Fataga. We even came here when we where doing the Way of St. James of Gran Canaria. Amazing place and food! You should know that the restaurant is called El Albaricoque (the apricot), because in many of its dishes include apricot jam from Fataga. This is the case of pumpkin pancakes, fried cheese and blood sausage, all comes with apricot jam. And how delicious it is! Unfortunately it is not for sale, but you can always try it here.
