Tenerife food guide: How to find authentic Canarian food in Tenerife

The food in Tenerife blends together influences from nearby Africa, the trade with the new Americas, and, of course, the reach of Castilian Spain. But with all that mixed in, the cuisine in Tenerife still has its own identity. My favourite, forever, will be papas arrugadas with green and red mojo....
