Popglish - El Musical - A fabulous Night In Lanzarote

We went to the theatre at San Bartolomé to see Popglish at the weekend, and it turned out to be a fantastic night, and in the words of one of the people we were with:

“The best value concert ever!”


The performance was set around a Spanish family who are discussing music in their home. They reminisce about some of the brilliant pop music that has come from Britain and Ireland over the years, and then get up and sing the songs. The four singers were backed by an excellent band, and their voices were truly excellent.  read more »

Tapas In Lanzarote - What Should You Order?

A tapa is a small dish of food to enjoy with a drink. The food in question can be anything from a few olives to a small portion of a stew, or even a tiny burger. A tapa will provide a little snack for one or two people. If you want more, you can often order a “racion” of the same dish, which is a larger portion, often served with potatoes and / or some vegetables.

Dishes served on a stick are called Pinchos, and those on bread are called Montaditos. These are very much like tapas, in that they are a small snack.

Of course, you can enjoy tapas as a meal, by ordering several dishes for the table to share. Aim for 3 to 4 tapas per couple or 2 raciones.

Here’s a selection of the most commonly found dishes on the island:

Papas Arrugadas

Lanzarote Wine Week A Success

Lanzarote wine week, which coincided with The European Day of Wine Tourism ended yesterday.

Charla-cata Malvasi?a

The week was kicked off by sommelier Pedro de Diego, who gave a wine tasting course called “The sommelier at home” at Castillo San José. He also gave a talk about the peculiarities of the Malvasía taste from Lanzarote wines, where the grapes are grown in conditions unlike anywhere else on the planet. It produces a unique and instantly recognisable taste and bouquet.
