Updated: Nov 19, 2022
Did you ever dream to enjoy a real american diner in Gran Canaria ? It is now posible with the new restaurant Sticky Fingers in the Yumbo Centrum. All the gastronomic specialties of a real american diner finally available in a special restaurant decorated in the style of the 50s.
Sticky Fingers is a new concept in Gran Canaria. In this wonderful place, you will find all the american specialties you love since always and you dream of : hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwich, sundaes, milk shakes, but not only ! The menu includes also mexican dishes like nachos, jalapenos, chilli or burritos, and tipical english food like breakfast with basked beans, sunday roast, ribs, etc.
The owners of Sticky Fingers are a really nice couple of guys, Liam - 33 years old - and his husband Michael, from Wales, UK, who fell in love with Gran Canaria many years ago.
Where did the idea of opening an american diner in Gran Canaria come from ?
After working in many different kinds of jobs, Liam decided to open a steak restaurant with his mom back in Wales, which became very quickly a very loved and visited place. This gave Liam the idea to start his own business with his husband, Michael. They opened a B&B. Up stairs they built the rooms, and down stairs the restaurant, for which they set to work researching American diners and authentic recipes to create their own menu, and within no time, the restaurant was full nightly.
After three successful years, they wanted to do the same here in Maspalomas, precisely at the Yumbo that they both knew very well, and that's where the story of Sticky Fingers American Diner starts.
The name Sticky Fingers came from myself Liam when I spoke with my family we all decided it was the best name given that the type of food we serve is mainly eaten by hand such as our ribs and wings that are served with our signature BBQ Sauce.
In fact, some of their specialties include their big porker ribs, slow cooked for numerous hours in their own signature BBQ sauce, the shared "Tomahawk" steaks (ordering in advance is essential), their all-day-long breakfast, or their version of the traditional english dish Sunday Roast (chicken or beef).
In Sticky Fingers, you'll also find all kinds of American-style dishes such as burgers, hotdogs, spicy beef chilli, all kinds of fries, etc. But not only ! Some very good Mexican specialities such as nachos, jalapenos or burritos are available too. You can also find a very large variety of desserts and milkshakes made with fresh fruit and ice cream, without forgetting the vegetarian dishes, the special menu for children under 10 and the cocktails !
A typical example of a 3-course meal in Sticky Fingers would be: Jalopeno Poppers (5.95 €) as a starter, followed by a Corvette Burger with fries (12.95 €), and, why not, a Belgian Chocolate waffle topped with hot chocolate sauce or strawberries served with cream or ice cream (5.95 €), all that for a total of 24.85 €. You will lick your fingers !
Next time at Yumbo, try it and say hello to Liam and Michael. They're always around and will be very happy to meet you.
