Lanzarote Recipes: Almogrote Gomero

If we’re not mistaken Bodega Stratvs serve almogrote at their wine tastings and in the restaurant. We think it’s perfect to serve as an accompaniment to a good glass of Lanzarote wine and a great way to start the weekend.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Brunch at Bodega Stratvs

Bodega Stratvs have been offering a Brunch menu on weekends and fiestas for some time, we were tempted to try it last Saturday.

Bodega Stratvs Fruit Brunch at Bodega Stratvs

As part of our weekend is now dedicated to training for triathlon, we had been for a run with the Lanza Road Runners in Puerto del Carmen and were out on a bike ride with a group of friends when we realised we were starving. It was just gone midday when we paused outside the Bodega Stratvs 24km into our ride, there was a quick discussion if we could make it back to our cars to finish our ride and return before the menu cut off at 1pm.

After a quick count up of the cash we were carrying between us we dismounted and walked our bicycles around to the rear of the bodega. We were disappointed then to be told that at 12:10 it was too late to order brunch for our group, a large party was expected at 1pm and they couldn’t cater for us. Not too happy with this, we questioned the decision with another member of staff who persuaded the kitchen to take our table.
