  • Watercress stew: one of the most typical dishes on La Gomera. If you ask anyone who lives on the island for a typical La Gomera dish, watercress stew (potaje de berros) will probably be one of the first ones that comes to their mind. It is simple, but very tasty as well as healthy. Its main ingredients are: watercress, potatoes, peppers and some meat for flavour.
  • Almogrote: is similar to pâté. The base of this dish is cheese and tradition has it that it originated from the need not to waste any food.
