Food and drink
The restaurant serves the usual menu of typical Canarian dishes but is best known for its arepas. If you're like me, you'll experience the arepa dilemma - one isn't enough and two is too much.
My favourite is carne machado - shredded spicy beef. It's greasy and sticks in your teeth but smothered in the chilli and avocado sauces with which it's served, it's chin-smearing good. Try the reina too - chicken and avocado.
It's chilled and laid back, much like the whole of Alcalá.
You'll probably have to go inside to let them know you're there and to pay the bill, unless you're prepared to while away the afternoon.
It's on Alcalá's pretty plaza with tables and chairs outside where you can watch the err... not much goings on.
Arepas are 2.50 euros each.
