Within all the amalgamation of Balearic products to taste on your vacation. The ensaimada stands out above the rest. I am still surprised since there are many visitors who do not know about its existence.
We will pull «wikipedia» for its definition; The ensaimada de Mallorca (from the Mallorcan ensaïmada) 1 is a sugary dough food, fermented and baked, made with strength flour, water, sugar, eggs, sourdough and lard (which comes from the Arabic saïm, hence the name ). It is a pastry product of great tradition on the island.
It is generally eaten for breakfast or a snack. Although any time is good to indulge, it is a great treat. There are countless ovens in Mallorca. I recommend the traditional ovens of the towns of Mallorca and always on request from one day to the next.
Two establishments stand out in Palma: Ca’n Joan De S’aigo, which is a classic in the Balearic capital, where you can enjoy other delicacies and especially the ice cream that is my downfall. The one with meringue milk is incredible. This place in case you want to taste them «in situ».
To take on a trip as a gift, I recommend the Reina María Cristina oven. Always remember to order one day in advance, since otherwise they will sell you the one of the day which is not the same. In case you like it filled with cream: The one with toasted cream is much better for those who are true sweet tooth like me.
These are the bakeries that I recommend but the offer is endless. Generally the level of quality is very optimal. Even if you have forgotten, you will always have the resource of the airport shops that although more expensive are also very rich.
