Genuine Mallorcan cuisine is the result of all the number of conquerors who have ruled the island over its history: a culinary medley abounding in vegetables, pulses, fish and seafood cooked in olive oil and exquisite lamb or pork courses.
You shouldn’t leave Mallorca without savouring:
Ensaimadas: a sweet, spiral-shaped bun.
Other tradicional sweets are Bunyols for St. Ursula's Eve, Flaó and Greixonera, Rubiols and Panellets.
Also sweet and refreshing is the Almond Milk, prepared and consumed fresh in the warmer days of spring and summer.
Sopes mallorquines: not a soup but a healthy and simple dish of slices of bread layered with seasonal garden vegetables and topped up with homemade stock (absorbed later by the bread once baked). According to taste, meat and mushrooms are added frequently.
Frit mallorquí: a popular dish that traditionally has as its main ingredients meat (pork or lamb liver, blood, etc), peppers and potatoes.
Sobrasada: another exquisite rustic pork product consisting of a soft paste of pork and red peppers. It is registered under the Mallorcan Sobrassada geographical denomination.
