The Lighthouse Coffee and Bread Arguineguin

0 comments
I love discovering new places to enjoy tea and cake in Gran Canaria, so I was very happy to find The Lighthouse Coffee & Bread on one of my strolls in fishing village Arguineguin.

The Lighthouse opened in Autumn 2014 and is just up the stairs from Correos (post office) and looks out onto the boat yard and beach.

If you sit outside on a clear day, you can enjoy a spectacular view of Tenerife's Mt.Teide! There are even binoculars and cozy fleece blankets available for those cooler evenings.



The indoor seating and the decor has that beach house vibe and you can see a lot of work has gone into the design of the place. There is even a little playhouse area for children to enjoy.






So enough about the fab decor and views, let's get onto the menu. Now I'm so into tea and cake, that I haven't really tried anything else off the menu, but it does look delicious. I think I would like to try the chicken and pesto salad next time.



I personally love the green tea with gunpowder which is served in a tea press, complimented with a chunky slab of carrot cake. We also ordered apple crumble and they have just introduced waffles onto the menu which taste great with a hot chocolate. If you are a bit of a chocoholic, there is a whole menu just for hot chocolate!



The owners are such lovely people and there's a pleasant atmosphere. I recommend that you visit The Lighthouse Coffee and Bread if you find yourself in Arguineguin.

Primark Shopping January 2015

0 comments
There are 2 Primark shops in Gran Canaria, one in Las Arenas Shopping Center in Las Palmas, the other in El Mirador Shopping Center in Telde. Primark are well known worldwide for their low cost clothes and accessories all year round and there are often some great bargains to be had in the January sales too.

I did visit Primark in the first few days after the sales started and it was chaotic! The returns queue was all the way back into menswear and the queue to pay was backed up into the underwear section. I waited until the end of January to have a proper look round the El Mirador branch.

There were some great deals on fleecy blankets and throws, which are perfect for the cooler nights at this time of year.



Another Winter warmer or very casual Carnival costume is this Sesame Street Elmo hoodie. When you put the hood up you can see Elmo's face, which I thought was hilarious. (Easily amused) :)



Here's something for the Walter White fans! These Heisenberg PJ's are great for those Breaking Bad marathons.



Is your dog joining you in Carnival this year? Primark have some super Batdog costumes for small pups.



Have you picked up any bargains in the sales so far?

Taj Palace Indian Restaurant to open in Arguineguin

0 comments
Great news curry lovers, Taj Palace Indian Restaurant is coming to Arguineguin!

Taj Palace III will be the first 'Authentic Indian Tandoori Restaurant' in Arguineguin.

Having eaten at the original restaurant in Puerto Rico, I'm really excited to visit the new establishment.



I had a little chat to the owner Raj, he said they are expecting to open up within 10-15 days (beginning of February). From what I've seen, they have been working non stop and getting every little detail just right. The huge local is what was previously Den Siste Viking and Trotters and can be seen clearly from the main road at the side of the Ancora Center.



Besides the option of enjoying a meal inside Taj Palace III, there will also be takeaway and home delivery options. Free WIFI will also be available inside the restaurant.

I'll keep you posted if I can find out any more information, including the grand opening. Hopefully in my next post about Taj Palace, I will have some photos of mouth-watering dishes and the interior. :)
