velvet escape’s Culinary Journey: Palma de Mallorca

IMG_4799 What: Tuna Tataki (seared tuna with baby salad leaves, pear, cucumber, avocado and ginger dressing)

Where: Caballito de Mar (Palma de Mallorca, Balearic islands, Spain)

Notes: The tuna was perfectly seared and the combination with the fresh garden leaves, pear, avocado and cucumber was beautiful. The ginger dressing was an excellent touch, giving the tuna a delightfully spicy edge.

IMG_4802 Caballito de Mar is a popular restaurant located just off Palma de Mallorca’s harbourfront. The restaurant specialises in seafood and Majorcan wines. The seafood is incredibly fresh – another highlight of my meal here was the magnificent seabass baked in sea salt. Absolutely divine!

    One more good reason for living on this wonderful island, Mallorca. While you’re here, be sure to visit the Soller Valley.

    Hi Tamara,
    Thanks for your comment. I agree with you. There are quite a few sub-standard places in Mallorca so I was glad to find this place and have a terrific seafood meal. Great service too & I loved the thick linens!

    Cheers,
    Keith

    Looks good enough to eat! I was born in Mallorca so the island and its food have a special place in my heart. I completely agree Caballito de Mar is a gem of a restaurant in a place where it is easy to get it wrong!
