tenerife, canary islands, spain : la torre del mirador.

for our last night in tenerife, josh & i wanted to eat some traditional spanish food ... since we hadn't the entire trip. so we headed down the coast for a short walk to la torre del mirador, located right on the water ... allowing for some gorgeous sunset views. 

sunset over la gomera, another canary island.

anyway, a bit about this lovely spot : "the restaurant la torre del mirador, located in the beautiful setting of costa adeje ... is a real balcony over the atlantic ocean, which overlooks an open horizon & [la isla] gomera ... the extensive menu offers visitors an exquisite variety of national and international dishes." see what i mean.

here's what i had ...

pimientos de padrón :
prepared vegetarian! i asked. so i am assuming vegan! woop.
my favorite dish. super delicious.

vegetable paella :
vegetable paella is almost always a safe bet, but i asked about preparation just in case. luckily, it was definitely vegan! and also luckily, josh was willing to share. anyway, this paella really hit the spot. so tasty, in fact, that it even inspired us to buy a paella pan with our remaining euros at the airport! who wants paella? come on over!

fruta del día :
does it get much better than a plate of fresh tropical fruit when you're craving a light dessert? perfect.

i highly recommend la torre del mirador for both fantastic spanish food & fantastic spanish views ... it was such a lovely, romantic dinner for our last night on the island ... i can't wait to go back!
