1) Paella

Best eaten beachside, this saffron-scented rice is usually packed with local seafood. It’s so popular that there’s even a paella home delivery service on the island.

2) Sofrit pagès

Chicken, lamb, butifarra and sobrasada sausages cooked with potatoes and garlic – a typical Ibizan dish.

3) Aïoli

You’ll find this garlicky mayonnaise served with bread at the start of many meals.

4) Greixonera

Leftover ensaïmadas are made into a lemon- and cinnamon-scented dessert similar to a bread & butter pudding.

5) Flaó

Ibiza’s version of a baked cheesecake. Drier in texture and a little more like a pie, it’s usually flavoured with mint and mild aniseed.

6) Hierbas ibicencas

For the adults – this is an aniseedy, herby alcoholic drink served over ice or as a shot. Try frigola, a liquer distilled with wild thyme, too.
