Bodeguita Canaria

Canarian in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

This is a local favourite and has an earthy traditional atmosphere with chunky dark furniture and charmingly dated decor. Try local dishes like ropa vieja (literally 'old clothes'), a tasty meat-based stew with chickpeas, vegetables and potatoes. The desserts are similarly heartwarmingly homely and include torrijas, the Spanish take on bread-and-butter pudding.
