Where We EAT: Sa Roqueta, Portixol.

Arroz Meloso, this is what I came here for and this is what I could not get enough of. This would be the more delicious cousin of the beloved dish, Paella. The only difference is that this is a brothy rice dish where in my own personal opinion makes everything more rich and concentrated with flavor.

Where We EAT: Appetite Palma, Santa Catalina.

We love a good Brunch on a lazy Sunday. We remember days when we lived in NYC and the highlight of the week was gathering with friends, ordering Bloody Mary's (or Mimosa's) and towers of pancakes, and any style of benedict with perfectly poached eggs. In Palma we have had a hard time finding that style of Restaurant.... until now!

Where We EAT: Naan Street Food, Palma de Mallorca

I've been eating out a lot in the area of Santa Catalina in Palma recently. It's the trendy area with many small Restaurants & Cafes that offer creative cuisine. It reminds me a lot of the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the early 2000's, before Williamsburg was on trend.

Where We EAT: Badal Burger, Palma de Mallorca.

When it comes to burgers I have come to realize that nobody in Europe will make a truly American Style all Beef Burger. They like to be creative, add hunks of goats cheese pairing it with a tangy cranberry relish because that is how they see their version of a burger. But what pains me the most is how each patty is made with a mix of different meat, usually not having the right amount of fat content or adding in bread for filler, resulting in mama's style meatloaf. I'm sorry but sometimes I just want a In-and-Out Burger, or when in NYC a ShakeShack Burger, they just know how to deliver a classic.

Where We EAT: Bistró del Jardín, Alcúdia.

I have never realized it, but the other day was my first time in Alcúdia, and quickly after parking the car I knew why. I was dressed for a casual lunch, summer cotton dress with lace accents and my black wedge espadrilles when around me I was surrounded by men with no shirts on, women in skimpy bathing suits and I almost ran past the entrance of Bistró del Jardín. Let's just say, the Bistro is right in the heart of it!

Where We EAT: Boutique Hotel & Restaurant Ca's Xorc, Sóller.

Paella Sunday is beyond our wildest dreams at this location in Sóller! We decided on a roadtrip through the tunnel and on the other side of Palma de Mallorca. I always enjoy this drive, as you pass by all the almond tree fields, then after an extremely long tunnel you enter to the land of Oranges in Sóller! This drive is best done during the spring time when everything is blooming and the almond flowers make a bed of white petals that remind you it's still the winter season!
