This June, La Bandera launched a special Canarian culinary experience – a unique 8-course Tasting Menu that takes you on a journey across the Atlantic islands.
The menu takes you to one of the islands with every course, giving you an insight into this unique cuisine and traditions. The long and tumultuous history of the islands has ensured that the cuisine is particularly unique, with a heavy focus on fish, and influences not just from the indigenous inhabitants of the islands, but also from Spain, North Africa, Cuba and the Caribbean.
From the island of Lanzarote with fiery king prawns, Gambas Volcan, to Tenerife itself and Pollo Asadores, inspired by owner Yashin’s experiences as a child with one of the most famous eateries on the islands – chicken grill Los Asadores.
The menu also features Lubina Embarrada, a fillet of seabass in a Canarian marinade, slow-cooked goat made famous on the island of La Gomera and the Polvito dessert, invented by a Uruguayan couple on the quiet island of La Graciosa.
The Taster Menu comes in at just £59 per person, plus an extra £30 for the wine flight, personally selected small-batch wines from Yashin, each one originating from the vineyards on the slopes of the Canary Islands.
What’s more, if you try the Canarian Taster Menu at La Bandera this June then you’ll be automatically entered into a raffle to WIN a trip to Tenerife for 2 people! Your flights and hotel will be provided, as well as a tour of one of the island’s famous vineyards.
