What to eat

Besides a good variety of 'standard' spanish food, in La Gomera you will find a good selection of local products. Fruit (including some tropical varieties) and (regular) honey from local farmers are very good as well. There are also good local wines (in particular white wines are usually very good). It follows a list of products that deserve paticular attention.
