It Was Cheaper Than Cooking At Home

When I was working in the Canary Islands, the first thing I realized was how cheap the beer was there. 1 euro for a pint of the coldest beer I have ever had. All because there were way too many bars for the amount of people who would frequent them. This was the same for restaurants, everybody competing for the same tourist dollar, so competition had pushed the price of meals down so low, that it was cheaper to eat at restaurants than it was to actually buy food at the supermarket and cook it at home. I had so many different dishes and being an island in the Atlantic ocean, seafood was co cheap and plentiful. Why would you cook a chicken stir fry, when for less money we were eating fresh fish, prawns, squid, and crayfish. Steak wasn't that cheap unfortunately and nor were tapas, but the price of everything else in the restaurant was laughable. In fact people should be embarrassed if they ate at home too much
