Lovely vegan restaurant in Torre Del Mar: Himalaya Salon Vegan. We went on plant based diet recently and feel blessed there’s such a high quality vegan restaurant in the area. Can definitely also recommend for non-vegan eaters.
As everything is homemade, organic and vegan, you get what you pay for, we shared nachos, had a burger each which came with nice salad and some oven baked fries, chocolate cake and drinks, 53€ (for 2 persons).
Ambience is really accomplished and waiter lovely.

Agaves under attack – reply: The attack of the Agaves sounds a bit like the beetle (picudo rojo) that attacks certain palms and which also lays white grubs which eat the core and produce a vile stench, eventually killing the tree. There is a series of products from Fertinyect claiming to treat all sorts of similar problems (https://www.fertinyect.com/tratamientos/), such as the processionary caterpillar (which we are currently trying, so no idea yet if it works).
Good luck. Nick/Jete, Granada 609 706 210
