Tasty, filling, and cheap – it’s easy to see why 2.5 billion people are known to fill up on street food every day around the world. With an exceptional wealth of home-grown produce, from suckling meats to fresh seafood and plenty of tasty vegetables, Mallorca offers some of the best finger-food in the Mediterranean. While markets, bars, and bakeries across the island serve up an array of top-notch pintxos and tapas, there are also more than a few regional must-try delicacies that you can scoff on the hoof.
The soft, pâté-like, sobrasada sausage is often served spread on crispy bread as a snack and accompanied by a cold beer. Composed of lean pork, bacon and spices, the ingredients are kneaded together and then filled into in pig’s innards where it undergoes a curing process of at least 40 days. Arguably the best sobrasada is made with porc negre (black pig), a native breed to the island of Mallorca. Look out for the food-truck “La Pickup” who are also well known for rustling up shredded porc negra tacos to hungry crowds at many street fiestas.
