Mallorca is a place where the culinary culture has various influences due to its coastal location and rich history. One of the island’s typical products is sobrasada, a black pork sausage with protected geographical indication and highly valued by the people of Mallorca. Sobrasada is made since the 16th century, with black pork, island breed, salt, pepper and paprika. It is a sample of the local attachment to sausages.
Another typical product is the ensaïmada, a recipe made with flour, water, sugar, eggs, mother dough and pork lard, which is rolled in spiral shape and has several centuries of history and tradition. The devotion to bakery is one of the characteristics of Mallorca’s gastronomy and the ensaïmada is an example of that.
At Vima Rent a Car, we recommend you visiting Can Joan de S’Aigo, a bakery founded in 1700 and known for its delicious ensaïmada, with branches in the capital of Mallorca. We also recommend trying the tumbet, a popular vegetable dish, such as eggplants, potatoes, red peppers and tomatoes sautéed, which can be taken as a vegan dish. It is one of the best ways to enjoy the freshness of the products offered by the land.
In addition, Mallorca has two wine denominations of origin: Binissalem i Pla i Llevant. Currently, the island’s wines are increasingly sought after and knowing the wines with denomination of origin of Mallorca is essential for wine lovers. Mallorca has a long history and wine tradition, and the climate and geographical location accompany and allow for good wine production.
