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.

Gran Canaria Weather: Heavy Rain Warning 22/03/15

0 comments
AEMET have issued a weather warning for heavy rain commencing Sunday 22nd March on Gran Canaria. There has already been ice and snowfall on the peaks in Tenerife in the last few days plus some rain showers on other islands.

Yesterday in the south of Gran Canaria, like today, started off sunny but soon turned cloudy in the afternoon. Today has been beautiful although there are some clouds lurking.



The warning is in place for the whole island from 06:00 until midnight on Sunday. As always I will keep you updated on the situation, especially since we also have snow forecast for Gran Canaria's peaks.

Here's a short video I filmed on Friday down on Playa de las Marañuelas in Arguineguin just before the rain started. It didn't rain for very long.

Gran Canaria Blog: Weekly Roundup 9-15 Mar

0 comments
Let's try out a new feature on Gran Canaria blog in the form of a weekly roundup. So much happens during the week and maybe I post it on Twitter but not the blog or Facebook or vice versa.

There are always juicy little tidbits of Gran Canaria news floating round too, so this ICYMI (in case you missed it) style post is a good place to gather it all up.



Gran Canaria Weather

March started with some sandstorms known as calima on the island, the sky was dusty and the wind was warm, but it soon cleared and we've been enjoying beautiful cloudless skies like this one in Taurito.



I was tweeting with Mr @GranCanariaLocal and he thinks Summer has arrived early up in Las Palmas. It certainly feels like it here in the south too, but I did hear we may have some rain on the way this week, so I will keep you updated on that.

Things to do in Gran Canaria

There's a new old place to explore in Playa de Mogán - Cañada de los Gatos archaeological site opened up this month. Here's a short video and you can also read the blog post here.



Have you discovered anything new to do in Gran Canaria?

Gran Canaria Shopping

Semana Santa is on the way and Mercadona are selling gluten free Easter eggs and treats. I spotted them at the El Tablero store but I imagine they will be available in other areas too. Let me know if you see anything interesting in the shops.



Gran Canaria News

Last week Paco González (the Mayor of Mogán) signed papers and gave the go-ahead to a near half million euro project (496.044,17€) which aims to improve the pathway from Patalavaca to Arguineguin on the GC-500. The improvements are much needed, some of the walls are very crumbly and salt damaged. This stretch of coast is great for walking and jogging so here's to change.



That's all for this roundup, let me know in the comments what you think about this new feature and anything you would like to see on the blog in the future.
