Well as usual Vegetarian food was not super common, although more so in Tenerife than mainland Spain as it is just really Little England but warmer. It was certainly easier to order things since all the menus were in English (and French, German, and Russian as well as Spanish). Much coke was drunk as well as a few cocktails (boyfriend), and mocktails (me). We also got paella, Spanish omelette, and patatas ali-oli. But there was some Italian interlopers in there too- pizza, risotto, and tagliatelle. I didn’t go to Tenerife for the food.
We went for one quite fancy meal one night, and I explained to boyfriend the commendable system they have in Europe to identify allergens in meals in restaurants so we could order freely without having to worry about his nut allergy. We ordered blueberry cheesecakes, which did not have a little nut symbol next to them, and indeed the cheesecakes did not contain nuts. The plate had been covered in completely pointless crushed nuts though! Not even good ones, so that had to be sent back!
