Tapas on Tenerife – Tapas Route in Tacoronte – Acentejo

Tapas routes seem to be really in vogue on Tenerife over the last 12 months. Puerto de la Cruz has had them and so has Los Cristianos in the south.

They’re a great way to sample local tapas for a couple of euros a throw. The Tacoronte – Acentejo area has now followed suite. However, they’ve taken the idea a saucy step further and themed their version as ‘tapa afrodisíaca’. It doesn’t take a fluent Spanish speaker to translate that one.

It sounds like an invitation to have an orgy of a tapas tasting. Aphrodisiac offerings include intriguingly sinful delights such as ‘Noche de Pasión’, ‘Sueño de un Eunico’ (I wonder if eunuchs do have sensuous dreams?), and ‘Papa Romántica’. I don't know what any of them are, but who cares?

Sounds great and as it’s in the area with Tenerife’s best wines and also some of the island’s best restaurants you’re guaranteed some seriously tasty and possibly sexy little treats.

There are 25 restaurants participating and each tapas costs €2.50 (glass of wine included). There are also prizes for the first 10 people who try 15 tapas and the first 5 who manage 20 tapas.
