Hotdog ensaimada bun was a huge hit

I enjoyed eating in the interior patio with its lush greenery and got a great kick out of seeing a sparrow and a blackbird land for a quick hop around.

Cucumber soup.

Cool down with cucumber soup

Cucumbers and yoghurt are especially refreshing when combined, but the effect is compounded with the addition of lemon and mint, as is shown in this soup.

The light curry chicken and veggies with rice.

Thai food is a great bargain in Mallorca

Palma Thai Kitchen has a fixed price menu at €14.50 that includes a spring rolls starter, a curry or noodles mains plus a drink that can be a caña or a cola.

My favourite “coca” is topped with roasted peppers, tomatoes and onions.
