Can you just imagine of having a barbecue party on a volcano? Obviously, preparing the food on the volcano is very conventional, but located on Spanish island Lanzarote El Diablo is a restaurant where the chefs prepare food over a volcano.
Usually, you visit the restaurant for their yummy food, but El Diablo is mostly visited and popular for its location and the techniques that it uses for preparing food.
The restaurant in Lanzarote uses the 500degree Celsius of geothermal heat to prepare the fish and meat. The unique food preparation technique at the El Diablo restaurant has one of their kitchens as a volcanic hole in the ground. Imagining a restaurant on top of a heat source is easy but watching live the mixing and preparation of food is quite interesting. The construction of the restaurant was not at all easy. The architects of the restaurant Eduardo Caceres and Jesus Soto had to lay 9-10 layers of basalt rock to build a foundation. A huge grill is placed over the opening where 6 feet below the lava burns at 400 degrees Celsius i.e. at the perfect temperature at which meat gets grilled.
Of course, it isn’t like a lava-spewing mountain, but this volcano is more like a big hole in the ground, through which volcanic heat ashes from the Earth. Prior to the restaurant, the visitors to the volcanic area were welcome with a plate of wine and sardines. But in 1970, the owner Cesar Manrique decided to create a restaurant in the area.
Traditional and the delicious Canarian food is now served at the place. Interestingly, food is not the only attraction here; people visit the restaurant to catch the glimpse of the beautiful view and surroundings too.
The landscape of the island is almost barren but its views are still breathtaking. The land is barren and is full of beautiful red sand and rocks which give an exotic feel of being at the stunning place.
There are more than 100 volcanoes in that Island but that has not deterred the visitors from enjoying a meal on the island.
The best time to enjoy the food is during the sunset when the land gives the light effect of the setting sun and the sand gets covered with the gurgling volcanoes altogether with a spell. Moreover, the El Diablo restaurant also conducts the Volcano Grill tour every Tuesday from 6-9.30 pm plus three-course meals and pick and drop facility from your hotel in just 50 Euros. (17.1)
