Rice Broths with Peix
It is a therapeutic rice combo stew made from local fish, like Serrano or Comber and rice. It is filling and delicious and a go-to-flavourful meal for the locals. If you are a rice lover, this dish should be your kind.
While the dish's name translates to ''Rice of the Land,'' this dish doesn't contain rice. Instead, it is mainly made with broken wheat and baked sausages. Sumptuous and hearty.
Cabrit or Lechona is Forn
This dish, translating into Roasted Kid or Suckling Pig, is a famous festive or holiday lunch menu. The meat is slow-cooked or roasted in a fire oven for a very long period until it falls off the bone. The main course is served with roasted potatoes. Any restaurant that has a good wood fire oven serves this dish.
If you don't like experimenting with your food and prefer soulful meals over adventurous ones, then this is what you should try. Locally farmed meat on the grill, flavored with sea salt, pepper, some herbs, spices and oil, grilled to perfection. The beef in Menorca is quite flavorful due to its soil, sea salt, and the grass that the animals graze. This dish can be prepared with lamb, pork, chicken, or beef.
Fish is often eaten as meatballs in Menorca. So, if a restaurant is serving fish meatballs, don't forget to try. Our recommendation includes Bacalao ab
Burrida (cod fish) and Albondigas de Cabracho (Scorpion fish).
Tumbet is one of the most popular side dishes made out of diced potatoes, aubergine, peppers, garlic, and onions. The vegetables are fried together until crisp. You can have it as it is or with meat and fish.
Nothing but a rich, cold, flavourful, and filling tomato soup traditionally eaten by the peasants at breakfast. Now it is available for lunch too.
