Note: There is space reserved for non-smokers.
Initially it was conceived as a take-out restaurant and it has become an attractive tavern with traditional Basque cooking. Kerman’s recipe is very simple: a variety of pinchos and more than 30 dishes in tapas, half-portions and full-portions. The food is tasty and the price-quality ratio is key here, which explains the attractive atmosphere of this place and why it is completely full all day long. Nothing costs more than € 9, tapas cost between € 2.70 and € 3.70 and montaditos canapés cost € 1.20.
Indeed, Kerman – La Pikada – is the typical tapas place that was lacking in Lanzarote. It is a place where you can have a conversation along with a glass of beer, good wine and something tasty to munch on without spending too much. The house has a good selection of products for the pinchos or montaditos. Good cured ham such as jabugo, serrano, chorizo sausage and lomo ibérico pork loin sausage are combined with Roquefort and Manchego cheese. There is a large glass cabinet that gets replenished all day long, and, as the picture shows, there is an ample variety of snacks: brie and anchovies, cod omelet or tortilla de bacalao, roasted red peppers or pimiento de piquillo,prawns, potato salad or ensaladilla, eggs, and baby eel made of surimi called gulas..
For a small tavern, Kerman offers a respectable wine list and the optional service by the glass. The pinchos can be combined with tapas, half portions and full portions of the more than 30 dishes that are cooked every day: Roast beef, chicken wings, tuna, pasta, fresh fish, and fabada bean stew are some of the options. The food is already cooked and on display, so there is no waiting time thanks to the agile service.
The interior is a non-smoker area. The rustic tavern-like decoration is complemented by the exhibition of the available wines. The terrace is protected from the constant winds of Costa Teguise. The modern and sturdy furniture is arranged in long benches, stools and traditional tables. A good selection of pinchos, tapas, beer and wine end up costing about € 10 to € 15 per person. The main problem is to find a place to sit and enjoy your tapas, because of the non-stop crowd that there is here from 1 p.m. onward.
What to do before and after: At night we are a few steps away from Jazz…mi madre!. We are also very close to the effervescent terrace of Pueblo Marinero.
