This tapas route is now getting a real name for itself, and marking Guía de Isora out as a centre of gastronomy in Tenerife. As usual, those following the ruta will be able to enter a prize draw by getting their card stamped by ten of the participating establishments and voting for their favourite. The event is organized, as usual, by the Ayuntamiento de Guía de Isora, and with collaboration from the municipality’s Asociación de Empresarios y Comerciantes, the hotel IBH Bahía Flamingo, and the Escuela Municipal de Deportes Náuticos. The list of participating establishments and the card for for voting is available HERE.
Update 6 May: And the winner is Cafeteria Futurama, in Guía de Isora. The restaurant is on the main road through the town, just past the post office and cultural centre, also on the left heading away from Adeje, and opposite the little Dialprix supermarket. Guía de Isora Ayuntamiento said that there was very high public participation in this tapas route and that it had been a great success.
Votes were counted in Alcalá’s notary in the presence of representatives from the Ayuntamiento, Guia’s Asociación de Empresarios y Comerciantes, and the Hotel Palacio de Isora. Futurama’s winning formula was a mini beefburger with peppers and black olive mayonnaise served with julienne potatoes. Once again, though, the real winner is the municipality of Guía de Isora, and the stylistic gastronomic flair for which the area is becoming rightly quite famous.
