Take a culinary journey through Menorca

With around 550 restaurants and over 600 bars and cafés, real estate owners can enjoy culinary delights on Menorca. But which dishes are typical Menorcan and where should you try them? Menorcan cuisine works with fresh vegetables, meat and fish from the region. Food such as Albergínies al forn (stuffed grilled aubergines), calamar farcit (stuffed octopus) and Llom amb col (char-cooked cabbage stew) are easy to prepare and popular with visitors and islanders - no other place in the world has dishes that are prepared in this form. 

It is not just the delicious Menorcan cuisine that you should explore as you choose to buy a property in Menorca. It is also worth visiting local farmers or fisheries to learn more about the origin of the food that you will use to cook in your new home or get served in restaurants. In the city of Mahón, for example, a very popular raw milk cheese is produced that is known and loved throughout the island. The name Mahón Menorca cheese is even registered as a protected designation of origin in the European Union.

If you move your life into a private house in Menorca, you can also look forward to delicious wines. The company Binifadet produces high-quality red, white and rosé wines for gourmets that are now available for purchase all over the world. You can also order the wines in the manufacturer's online shop.

The island picture is dominated by olive trees. Pampered by the sun, they line the streets, stand decoratively in the backyards of inns or are planted in plantations. One of Menorca's olive oil producers is Morvedra. The farm is located in the south of the island, near the bays of Turqueta and Macarella. In clear weather you can see all the way to the sister island of Mallorca from here. The direct proximity to the sea allows the salty air to blow over the cultivated olives, resulting in the incomparable taste.

Culinary there is much to discover for real estate owners on the wonderful island of Menorca. Embark on a journey to the origins of Menorca's delicacies, or try them on-site in one of Menorca's authentic restaurants.
