Let the lobster-mania begin!
In the Meloneras shopping center (or what is supposed to be a shopping center, unfortunately all stores are closed except for a few souvenir shops) in the south of Gran Canaria there exists a restaurant that is not really a house-hold name either on the island or much less outside. Called Ciao Ciao, it is popular with the local crowd and tourists but you don’t find it often listed in guide books. However, it is in a certain way unique. Yes, it offers all the expected dishes: pasta, pizza, fish and meat, the usual vacation fair, but, hidden underneath all this routineness, there is a dish that should be praised by chefs and poets alike. It is a piece of art unseen and unheard off: we bring you THE LINGUINI LOBSTER! Homemade pasta cooked to perfection with pieces of lobster, chili and garlic served with a half lobster on the side (tip: ask for it picante). The waiter brings you a bunch a gadgets to tackle the shell so just dig in and enjoy one of the best dishes the island has to offer. The wine is house but good and the deserts are huge and delicious, especially if you are into ice cream with tons of cream, jam and fruits (just to make you feel better with some nutrition involved). The bill will not make you cry and you will walk away with a few more happy kilos on your tummy.
