Santa Cruz stages new tapas route with a movie flavour
Visitors to Santa Cruz are able to enjoy a taste of “Saturday Night Fever” and “Blade Runner” in the most unusual way.
These are just some of the names of dishes being served in a new tapas route which coincides with the International Film Music Festival of Tenerife.
With a nod to this title, the “Tapas Film Route” began on September 22nd and continues until October 5th. Nearly 20 establishments are taking part along avenida Francisco La Roche and its surrounds.
The initiative was presented by the ninth deputy mayor and councillor for economic promotion, Alfonso Cabello, together with the representative of Dorada, Josefa Iglesias, and the secretary of the Association of Entrepreneurs and Traders of the Avenida Marítima (AECAM), César Gil. The aim is to promote local gastronomy and business associations.
The tapas route also coincides with a new edition of the “Come to Santa Cruz” shopping event on October 1st and the arrival in port of 18 cruise ships.
An unusual tapas dish will be available, together with a drink, for three euros. An extra novelty of this first edition is that a cocktail will also be available at the same price.
Cesar Gil said this was the first venture of its kind for his association and they were very pleased with the response from the restaurants and bars taking part. He hoped it would follow that local residents and visitors would now give it their support.
Josefa Iglesias of Dorada said it was very important for the brand to work with the city and they intended to launch or be involved in a large number of initiatives for the whole family.
With the aim of encour-aging participation and boosting consumption, custo-mers will be able to vote for the best film cap or cocktail by means of a route book, which must be completed with the seal of ten participating venues.
Those who do so will be entered into the draw to win a night in a four-star hotel for two people on a half board basis, dinner for two in one of the participating venues or a day spa for two at the Iberostar Gran Hotel Mencey.
