Fancy a FREE haircut in exchange for a bag of food?

Barber's Street, set up by local barber Juanjo Segura from Barbería NU2 Peluqueros will take place on the main beach road in Arguineguin from 11:00h - 20:00h on Sunday 26th April.



Around 70 Barbers and hairdressers from Gran Canaria and Tenerife will be set up along the beach road giving a FREE haircut in exchange for 1 kilo of food (non-perishable). The donated food will be given to Mogán Town Hall to distribute to people who are out of work and struggling to provide.

There will be performances, graffiti and tapas!

Sounds like an interesting combination and all for a good cause.

Dunkin' Coffee Gran Canaria

0 comments
Iced coffee and doughnut lovers rejoice, Dunkin' Coffee Gran Canaria is opening soon in Vecindario!

You may be more familiar with the name Dunkin' Donuts, this is same company but as bakery company Panrico trademarked the term 'donut' in Spain, DD went with the name Dunkin' Coffee here.


On one of my visits to C.C Atlantico in Vecindario this week, I noticed that the local next door to McDonalds which was previously Buffet Wok is going to open soon as Dunkin' Coffee!



With a quick glance at Dunkin' Coffee's website I can see they have some delicious looking donuts and coffee although I'm more of a tea person so I will definitely be trying out their iced tea. It's not all donuts, they also have some yummy looking bagels, croissants and toasties.

Of course for research purposes I will have to pay a visit once it's open and test a few things. ;)

Taj Palace Indian Restaurant Arguineguin

0 comments
Taj Palace III opened it's doors on the 2nd February this year, the only indian restaurant in Arguineguin.

I've been so looking forward to actually paying a visit and tasting the food for myself.

The original establishment Taj Palace I in Porto Novo, Puerto Rico is where I've enjoyed many a lovely meal so I knew what to expect.



We were greeted as soon as we arrived, I totally recommend you reserve a table by the window because of the lovely view of the palm trees and the late afternoon sunshine setting behind them. Straight away I noticed the atmosphere, calm and relaxed with really nice zen background music just the right volume to have a conversation with my dinner companion.

Starters

For starters was the obvious classic, crispy papadums and pickle tray with 3 different flavours, my favourite was the onion/cucumber. The Onion Bhaji was equally as tasty.



Main Course

As it's been a while since I've eaten Indian food, I went for the mild Mixed Vegetable Curry which was absolutely delicious. I recommend mild for anyone who is new to Indian cuisine or doesn't like their food too spicy. Next time I will try the medium for a little bit of a kick.



We ordered the Chicken Shashlik which was the star of the show and going by other diners table's very popular. You can hear it before you order it. It's brought over on a sizzling hot plate and I couldn't help but take a short video of it swishing away.



As I edit this post I'm already looking forward to my next visit to Taj Palace, let me know in the comments if you visit.
