Eat and Drink in Majorca
Majorca has become a real foodie destination, with chefs reviving traditional local dishes. Gastronomic experiences range from an authentic paella on the beach to rustic roasts in farmhouse restaurants.
The local Majorcan or as known in Majorca ‘Mallorquin‘ dishes make full use of delicious local almonds, olives, walnuts, and the local tomato called Ramallet which is native to the island.
Breakfast often includes an ensaimada – this is a delicious spiral yeast bun dusted with icing sugar. Attempts to make it off the island are never successful, as it is thought that the rising dough benefits from the sea air. That is what you may see many visitors carrying back in boxes from Majorcas Palma Airport!
Famous main dishes include tumbet – a splendid vegetable dish, fideua – the local paella made with noodles rather than rice, sophisticated salt cod dishes, fresh fish dishes, pork loin in a majorcan sauce, pork wrapped in cabbage, suckling pig, numerous lamb dishes, cauliflower with raisins and pine nuts, pumpkin fritters, local mushroom dishes.
Another great majorcan dish is Tapas, which are different combinations of meats and vegetables in sauces, such as Meat Balls in a delicious spicy sauce, garlic mushrooms, battered squid rings known as Calamares, Croquettes… If you would like a mixture of different Tapas, then just ask for a Tapas Variadas!!
