2. The Brasserie by Traddiction: what to drink
There’s Heineken on tap at The Brasserie by Traddiction. House whites and reds disappointingly come by way of Catalonia rather than the Canary Islands. More positively, the bar staff, snazzily attired in wmatching denim shirts and trousers, are celebrated for mixing up some of the finest mojitos on the island and they also do a mean carajillo (espresso with cointreau).
3. The Brasserie by Traddiction: what to eat
There are four main menus offered by The Brasserie by Traddiction. Ranging from snacks to takeaway to restaurant to corporate. We’ll explain each in turn.
The snacks menu include burgers such as the Burger Brasserie (beef patty, bacon, Canarian goats cheese, avocado, and spicy mojo sauce) for €8. Popular takeaways, handy if you’re staying in the nearby villas, feature the Pizza Ibérica (topped with tomato, Manchego cheese, Iberian ham, and sweet Piquillo peppers) also priced at €8. The restaurant menu includes ham fashioned from tuna to share (€16), venison sirloin (€18), and oven-sauteed red fruits with toffee foam (€5).
The Brasserie by Tradicction is a popular corporate venue. They host many a Christmas party, for example. Where you and your firm could feast on such culinary treats as courgette flowers in tempura, grilled mussels with chilli and parsley presented in cans which we believe is becoming a bit of a culinary cliché, and traditionally al-dente Milanese risotto jazzed up with beef jerky.
