My Patapa started at El Tomate Gastrobar

The Patapa of Tenerife Realejos was scheduled from the second until the eighteenth of November 2018.

Needless to say, this so called Concurso XV de Tapas and wine of denomination Orotava has turned into a traditional celebration of local produce and its vineyards.


Here's my first competitor. It's a creation by the new Restaurant El Tomate. That's in the Open Market Zone at La Longuera, 22 of Los Realejos. Served are lunch and dinner.(Tel: 822 905 526)Closed for Siesta between 15.30 and 19.30.

About this Patapa Tapa by El Tomate

This Tapa is made up of two parts. One is a mini toast with meat from the Cochino Negro the black pig that's known for its chestnut diet.

Imagine that this succulent toast alone took 18 hours in the oven at a low heat of 85 degrees. That's without the previous marinating of the prize porc. Needless to say, your mouth starts to water when you dip the toast into the bean cream that's served with it.

Indeed, the milk can above doesn't contain wine, as that comes from an oak barrel originally. You place your little voting slip in the can.

So what about the Patapa wine by El Tomate?

The wine was a semi fruity red Cuprum. It was created by Fernando Estévez of the Bodega Secadero of Los Realejos. This wine is a mix of 25% Negro Listo and 75% Tintilla grapes with a touch of earthy as well as Cherry and Rasberry aroma. It complemented the delicate musky taste of the Cochino toast perfectly.

Patapa conditions to win prizes

Too much? You can win something already by evaluating three of the competing places for their Tapas, wine and service.
