This is the third year running that Tinajo is running their Bocata Tour, “bocata” being Spanish slang for baguette, in which a gourmet baguette or burger that includes at least one local ingredient with a drink, is offered at a maximum price of €5.
There are 7 participating establishments, listed below, offering their “bocata” between the 9th and the 30th of December 2017.
Foodies that sample at least three different ones can enter their participating stamped card voting for their favourite “bocata” and a the same time enter the draw for a trip to Fuerteventura for 2 people that includes the ferry tickets and accomodation for two nights.
Completed cards can be presented until the 2nd of January 2018 at the Casa de la Cultura in Tinajo on Avenida de los Volcanes, 21. The draw and the counting of the votes will take place on the 3rd of January at 9:00.
