CANARIAN GASTRONOMY. THE BEST GUACHINCHES
"IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN IN A GUACHINCHE DURING YOUR HOLIDAYS IN TENERIFE, IT IS THAT YOU HAVE LOST AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE ISLAND'S ESSENCE"
If you are visiting Tenerife for the first time, it is very likely that the word “guachinche” sounds quite strange and is totally unknown to you. Guachinches are typical food houses on the island of Tenerife where it is possible to taste grilled meats, typical Canarian dishes and seasonal wines at very affordable prices. A curious fact of the origin of this type of establishment is that its fundamental purpose was the sale of homegrown wine and that the hook to manage to sell that wine to visitors and tourists was to accompany it with simple dishes from the canarian gastronomy. But the really unique and special thing about guachinches is that they are not a typical restaurant, and that is precisely what gives them their differential value. Chances are that they are installed in garages, living rooms of private houses or patios and, even more likely, you will find that the tables and chairs does not match each other. Probably you will not find a menu, but it will be the waiter who offers you the dishes of the day, which usually do not exceed 3 or 4 specialties.
The guachinches extend throughout the island territory but, without a doubt, where there is a greater concentration of them is in the north of the island of Tenerife in the surroundings of the wine growing areas of the municipalities of Tacoronte, El Sauzal, La Matanza, La Victoria, Santa Ursula, La Orotava and Los Realejos.
The growth of guachinches in recent years has led to the development of a law that defines exactly what types of establishments can be called guachinches or not, as well as business conditions (for example, when they close when there is no more wine from their harvest, or that They only offer a small variety of dishes).
