Typical food of the Canary Islands tends to be simple dishes of grilled meat and fish with papas arrugadas and vegetable or salad accompaniments are not the most imaginative in the world. Although Tenerife takes some beating when it comes to choosing tapas. Gofio has been a staple part of the Canarian diet for many years and is rather like flour made from toasted cereals. It was believed to be the main food of the Guanches, the native people of Tenerife and remains a popular dish to this day.
