Emblematic tasca goes virtual: El Callejón
One of Tenerife’s most emblematic gastronomic addresses in Santa Cruz has “gone virtual” to celebrate the annual Carnival.
Chef at the tasca “El Callejón”, Braulio Simencas is sharing some of his secrets to followers of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
A master of cuisine on the island, the virtual tour includes a look round the restaurant and the kitchen where some of the dishes on the menu are explained and created.
“El Callejón” is owned by Grupo CIO and is expected to become a hub of activity during the Carnival celebrations which this year are on the theme of Bollywood.
Chef Simencas always advocates the use of fresh produce from the islands, including fish and items from the traditional Canary garden. He believes food should be very light and very healthy in terms of ingredients and processes. His mouth-watering creations include octopus tortilla with caramelized onion and salmon with a red onion pickle with lime and parsley.
