“Bocata” is the Spanish slang for “bocadillo” and “butty” would the be the closest in English. In this gastronomic proposal they actually range from sandwiches, rolls to even burger buns!

The principle of the tour is simple: “bocatas” priced between €3.50 and €5, including at least one ingredients produced locally, will be offered during these days in different establishments around the municipality of Tinajo. The idea behind it is to promote both the establishments and the local produce in the area.

Every time you try one of them, you get your voting card stamped. You need to try at least 3 of the 9 “bocatas” offered to be able to choose your favourite. Your card will not only elect this year’s winner but will also be your entry to the draw for a trip to Fuerteventura for two people, including the ferry ticket, car and accommodation.

Don’t forget to get you card stamped and bon appetit!
