Breakfast

More often than not, one of the simplest ways to start the day is with toast. This might not sound like a very exciting proposition, especially when on holiday, but smothered with a sobrassada sausage pate, it's actually rather scrummy. This spiced soft spread often features bacon, too, and is sourced from porc negre, livestock that is native to Majorca.

Satisfying snacks

Whenever you need a quick food fix, a panade or two will likely do the trick. Made with freshly baked, crusty pastry that melts in the mouth and is packed with succulent lamb and peas, it's sure to stave off any hunger pangs.

There are times when it seems like only a pizza will leave a tummy feeling contented – but is there a Majorcan equivalent? Well, one of this island's most popular snacks is coca de trampó, which is similar to pizza but made without cheese. Not as crispy as its Italian counterpart, coca de trampó is typically topped with roasted peppers, onions and tomatoes, and seasoned with fresh parsley.

Does a chunk of Spanish bread that is infused with garlic, dipped in a Majorcan ramallet tomato sauce, and topped with a judicious trickle of olive oil and sea salt flakes sound good? Try it and see what you think.

Uncomplicated, traditional and delicious

Vegetarians might like to sample tumbet, a pisto/ratatouille-like dish comprised of sautéed vegetables that is served with delicious homemade tomato sauce. Baked gently in the oven, tumbet is even nicer when topped with a couple of fried eggs.

Sweet treat

Ensaïmada can be enjoyed at any time of day, much in the way that the croissant is in France. A Majorcan staple for almost 400 years, it goes perfectly with a freshly brewed cup of coffee, for example. And this sugar-coated delight makes for an even more special treat when filled with chocolate or cream.

Having the opportunity to try new taste sensations is just one of the many pleasures of travelling abroad. Whichever part of the world you decide to visit, ourairport transferswill provide you with a low-cost, hassle-free start to your vacation.
