If given the chance, Bebe and I would love to fly to Majorca, the largest island in Spain, and experience life there for at least a week. It’s a good thing that checking for flights and hotel [if not, villa and apartment] accommodation, as well as comparing prices for holidays to Majorca and anywhere else in Europe are way quicker these days. Thanks to the internet!
In Majorca, according to friends who have been, there are loads to do --- enjoy the beautiful crystal blue waters under the sunny weather, go shopping for souvenirs and most importantly, get a taste of Majorca’s traditional island food!
Because summer in Majorca means overflowing vegetables left and right, it’s the ultimate time to take advantage of getting more than a slice of vegetable pizza [trampos, if that’s what it’s called] each for Bebe and I to enjoy. Maybe try their tumbet, Majorca’s vegetable pie without the crust. Now that sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

Although I have tried ensaimada a million times [it’s famous in the Philippines but well, not here in Sweden *wink*], it would be awesome to taste ensaimada de Majorca, a popular sweet bread with a snail-like shape.
Their fideua also triggers my interest. It’s Majorca’s very own version of paella. Instead of incorporating rice to the dish, noodles are added. Hmmm. I might actually try this at home. Got to get my hands on those expensive saffron threads first!
Last but definitely not the least, a plate filled with sausages, calamares, suckling pig, seafood and lamb dishes and different combinations of TAPAS! Uhhhmmm… Yum!
How about you? Have you ever been to Majorca? If yes, which food did you love the most? Hate the most?
