Borrida de Ratjada.
This stew has its origin in a famous restaurant and later it was taken as a reference for every house. It is a plate based of stingray/skatefish, a white and cartilaginous fish very common in the markets and shops in Ibiza. It is, as well, a very laborious plate made with fish, and vegetables which you can not miss on your visit to the island.
It is one of the most popular desserts of the Pitiusas islands and traditionally is made on the feast of Easter Sunday, but nowadays it can be found during the whole year in restaurants and bakeries. It is elaborated with flour, fresh cheese, anisette and mint. An amazing delicacy you won’t stop eating every time you visit the island.
These fried aniseed sweets, are mostly eaten during the holidays and are highly appreciated by the children ( and not so children). They are soft in texture and not in the appearance of a hard cookie. In short, a prefect breakfast or snack in the middle of the afternoon.
