Memories of an Island

 Ok, that's the villa booked for our September Holiday and once again heading back to the beautiful island of Lanzarote. For anyone who hasn't been to Lanzarote before, it is a must see destination. 

 Nicola and myself have been visiting Lanzarote for the last six years, one of the things that keeps bringing me back is huge range of food and wine that is on offer. 

When we return later this year I will be uploading lots of handy and hopefully useful information, reviews and photos, to give some idea of places to visit that we have enjoyed. 

In the meantime, the following places are definitely worth trying out!

Brown Deli in Costa Teguise is owned Tracy and Derek. Like all good deli's they offer a huge range of delicious home cooked favourites. Sandwiches, salads, pies, cakes, and lots more. They also sell a good selection of grocery items too!

Valery Delicatessen in Arrecife has only been open for about six months but has already created a name for itself. It's a great place to sit in for lunch with a fantastic and varied menu. Choose from bocadillos packed with delicious meats, cheeses and salads or why not pick from a selection of traditional pintxos? If you have a sweet tooth, you can indulge in the mouthwatering speciality cakes and biscuits.

Bogeda Stratus in La Geria has created a wonderful tourist attraction in the middle of the wine growing region. Only in their first couple of years of production, there is a well stocked deli shop offering everything from their own award winning wines to locally produced cheeses and hams. There is also a little bar where you can enjoy a little wine tasting session. If you have more time on your hands, why not take a tour of the vineyard or even stay for lunch in their beautiful outdoor restaurant.

I look forward to sharing more of our favourite places on Lanzarote. If you have your own favourite eatery on the island, I would love to hear from you.
