Things to do in Menorca, Spain
Menorca was magic.
It was so much colder than we had imagined, but still the skies, buildings, and food was beautiful! I really wish next time I'll come in the summer so we can enjoy the beaches and ocean.
To stay: Casa Ládico
I loved staying at Casa Ladico! It's a small boutique hotel in the city of Mahón’s historic centre. The people who work there are super nice, but the best part is their breakfast. OMG I've had the BEST croissant I've ever had in my life here. Breakfast bar is nothing crazy, but the fresh out of the oven pastries, salmon, and fruits were a perfect simple way to start the day.
To eat: Pipet & Co
To eat: Cafè marès
Did you know that mayonnaise's origin is in Mahon?
According to how stuff works:
Mayonnaise was invented in 1756 by the French chef of the Duc de Richelieu. After the Duc beat the British at Port Mahon, his chef created a victory feast that was to include a sauce made of cream and eggs. Realizing that there was no cream in the kitchen, the chef substituted olive oil for the cream and a new culinary creation was born. The chef named the new sauce "Mahonnaise" in honor of the Duc's victory.
That's why it's extra special to have paella with mayo on top! It was so good and surprisingly amazing pairing with the squid ink.
Until next time!
