A Gastronomic Experience Through Ibiza

Ibiza is an island less than 100 miles from Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. The island’s main city, Ibiza Town is a destination filled with wine, shopping, and nightlife that last into the early hours of the morning.

The island’s beaches and nightlife scene are where many of its visitors stick around. However, as you travel more inland, there is a vibrant culture; rich with culinary delights. As visitors travel inland, they’re sure to discover vast Ibizan wineries, rolling almond groves, and olive groves near the renowned Almazara San Jose, where travelers can sample freshly pressed olive oil.

Here is our recommendation for local Ibizan eats and sips to try when you’re there:

EATS:

  • FISH: Sirvia and the delicate tasting Dorada, both of which tastes just like lobster.
  • Zarzuela: Fish Stew
  • Sofrit Pages: An Ibicenco dish of gently spiced pork, lamb & chicken, with delicious local sausages ‘Sobresada’ and ‘Butifarra’, whole sweet garlic, peppers & potatoes, all vaporized in their own rich juices and sauteed with cinnamon, parsley & saffron.
  • Ensaimadas: Balearic croissants filled with either cream, chocolate or sweet pumpkin (Angel’s Hair) or simply dusted with icing sugar.
  • Greixonera: A delicious pudding made with Ensaimadas.
  • Flao: Local cheesecake made with herbs and honey.

SIPS:

  • Hierbas Ibicencas: This very typical drink of Ibiza has been made on the island for over 200 years. It is aniseed flavoured with extracts of a variety of plants and herbs. It is delicious on the rocks and said to be good for the digestion.
  • Frígola: This is a very sweet and aromatic drink, made primarily from Thyme.
  • Granizados: Refreshing fresh fruit juices with crushed ice, similar to slushee style.
  • Horchatas: A traditional frozen drink made of crushed tiger nuts, water and sugar. Horchatas are a delicious and vitamin-enriched way to quench your thirst.
