My next few posts will be Gran Canaria orientated and will include:
- Canarian food
- Generic holiday pics
- Hotel review and pics
... and all being well, a video or two.
I tried Half Board for the first time and the food was soooo good, I felt it deserved its own post. Tables and tables piled high with food; there was a great assortment of cheeses, cold cuts of meat, hors d'oeuvres, hot dishes, fruit, desserts, plus two chefs on hand to cook meat / fish to order. But admirably hardly any repeats - always variety:
Sushi, asparagus, prawns, duck cooked two ways, cucumber salad
Hello dessert table!
Strawberry sponge roulade, strawberries 'n' cream, weird brownie
Tuscan potatoes, steak, pumpkin roasted in cinnamon, cod,
aubergine, olives, mushrooms. Canarian potatoes with sauce
Smoked salmon, king prawns, langoustines, mussels, aubergine
Beetroot, steak, mushrooms with garlic and almonds,
noodle paella, breaded mozzarella sticks, battered cod
Chocolate mousse / cream with various biscuits
Mixed bean salad, octopus, smoked salmon, beetroot, mini quiche
Paella, green beans, broccoli, squid, tuna steak, octopus
Asparagus, smoked salmon, prawns, olives, mini baked potato with roe
Asparagus, steak, mushrooms, onion rings, salmon served 2 ways,
confit duck with berries, mini baked potato with roe on top
Always really pretty desserts
Chocolate fountain night!
And pineapple too on days they had
Aubergine, beetroot, mushroom and sausage stew,
chickpeas, king prawns with alioli
I returned from holiday glad that it was the suitcase that had to adhere to a weight allowance - not me! With all the food consumed this holiday, I definitely would've gone over the limit!
So worth it.
