Enjoy mushroom dishes in El Rosario’s annual tapas route
If you like mushrooms, then why not plan a trip to El Rosario in the north of Tenerife?
The seventh edition of the municipality’s popular gastronomic event, the “Ruta de Setas” began on November 8th and continues until December 8th.
For the first time, the event is organised under the brand Saborea El Rosario. In this edition, there are 21 partici-pating restaurants, bars and tascas, covering all areas of the municipality.
The department of employ-ment and local development of El Rosario council, Citizen Participation and Equality, the Association of Small and Medium Businesses of El Rosario (Apymeer) and Camp Quimpi are all lending their support to this gastronomic route, which has the colla-boration of the Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Tenerife Rural and Saborea Tenerife Foundation, and the Official College of Biologists of the Canary Islands.
The establishments taking part are “Casa Jeremías”, “El nuevo Junquito”, “El Ávila”, “El Buda”, “Casa Lola”, “El Perenquén”, “El Zarzal”, “Las Rosas”, “Casa Berta”, “La Morra”, “La Morada de Guayota”, “La Aceituna”, “El Mocán”, “Los Patrones”, “Bar Zaragoza”, “La Ñora Arrocería”, “La Cofradía de Radazul”, “El Rincón de Frankino”, “Chiringuito El Tamboril”, “Artadi Beach” and “La Tasquita del Charcón”, the latter as usual as a guest establishment, coming from the neigh-bouring municipality of San Cristóbal from La Laguna and not part of the competitive element.
The participating tascas, bars and restaurants will offer a specific dish where one or more of its ingredients will be the mushroom, the rest of its ingredients being of free choice. Each cover will be sold at the price of 2.50 euros and will include a drink (can of the beer, glass of local wine, water or soft drink) and will be available to the public at the time determined by each place.
The three best tapas, according to the jury made for this purpose by Apymeer and the votes contained in the routometers, will win different prizes in cash; while a second prize will be reserved for the surprise dish that will earn a gift. The prizes will be donated by Apymeer and the popular vote will be carried out through the votes contained in the routometers that will be distributed by the municipality.
In addition, the parti-cipants of the Route will also enter the raffle of various prizes, which this time will be donated by different busi-nesses of the municipality and sponsoring companies; as well as a dinner for two people in the first prize winning restaurant. To do this they must seals from at least five establishments of the route, fill in their personal data and choose their favourite co-ver.
Each partici-pating establish-ment will have, at a very visible point, the Route poster and a box so that the participants deposit their vote and can participate in the prize draw.
