Stews, rice and meat cooked with vegetables grown on the island are the basis of a typical cuisine rooted in the textures, aromas and flavours of the Mediterranean diet. Lamb, pork and chicken meats are combined with sausages, such as sobrassada and butifarra, to make up traditional dishes such as sofrit pagès.
Fried pork, arroz de matanzas or the fried octopus are other perfect combinations offered by the Ibizan recipe book. The bullit de peix, a stew of fish, potatoes and vegetables seasoned with aioli, which is followed by the arroz a banda, is the quintessential sea food dish. The borrida de ratjada, whose main ingredient is the ray, and fresh baked fish are also highly valued options for lovers of the premium product.
