Even thinking about spending an entire weekend at a gastronomic fair in Majorca makes our mouth water. Forget about your day-to-day routine, stress and responsibilities and come and enjoy an endless array of dishes and drinks meant to offer you and your loved ones new experiences. Where can you do this? During the Festival of the Mahi-Mahi (Sa Llampuga in Catalan), which is a cultural fair that invites visitors to try the typical cuisine of Majorca and which takes place this weekend in Cala Ratjada, close to our 4-star Green Garden Aparthotel. How does a mini break sound?
The XVII Fira de sa Llampuga 2018 will take place in the picturesque port of Cala Ratjada between the 13th-14th October. Over the course of this event, restaurants and stalls will be serving delicious seafood dishes, many including mahi-mahi, the front-runner of this event in Cala Ratjada. This delicious fish is found in the Mediterranean Sea and is very in-demand due to its fine flesh, rich flavour and for the way it can be combined with different ingredients and cooked in different ways.
In fact, this festival is the best way to discover one of the island’s most revered delicacies whilst enjoying a well-deserved escape with your loved ones. Have we convinced you yet? Well with the offer of the Green Garden Aparthotel you can enjoy a break under the sun between the 11th-14th October in Cala Ratjada. Or if you would prefer to go all inclusive surrounded by the gorgeous Playa de Muro and port of Alcudia, then take a look at our Garden Hotels long weekend offers from the 12-14th October at Garden Holiday Village, Playa Garden Selection Hotel & Spa, Palm Garden y Alcudia Garden Apathotel.
Some of the most popular must-try Majorcan specialties are “llampuga amb prebes”, mahi-mahi with peppers; “fideus secs amb llampuga”, noodles with mahi-mahi; and fried mahi-mahi in paella. We also cannot forget the island’s sweet delights, such as: ensaimadas (a type of sweet pastry) and typical pies and cakes. This fair has everything you need to be able to bring a little piece of Majorca back home with you. It is also an opportunity to enjoy an endless array of local wine, craft beer and Habanera concerts and shows which are very popular on the island.
