Sa Placa restaurant is a lovely place to enjoy tapas. It is located in the small town of S’ Alqueria Blanca in the southeast corner of Mallorca.
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers. In Spain they have become very popular and ordered in larger quantities that they become a meal. A fantastic meal at that. It always seems to happen to me that the other people I go to dinner with order the better food. But not with tapas! You share tapas (at least you are supposed to) with everyone at the table because they are ordered as a small or a large plate. Obviously the larger the group, the larger the plate and the amount of tapas ordered. Three of us went the other day and we ordered six small plates of tapas and it was the perfect amount.
Sa Placa is a great restaurant to take visitors to, or if you are a tourist on the island then you need to go. The town is small and adorable and the restaurant is right next to the church. They have expanded it so you can sit outside and watch the cars go by – one of my favorite things to do.
My favorite tapas: goat cheese with figs, sobrasada pastry, meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce, shrimp with garlic, black pudding (blood sausage), croquettes, dates with bacon (my total fav), pimientos de padron, patatas bravas and the calamari. Excellent. The other day we had the lamb and the pork which I was not very fond of, they tasted old, no taste actually. I would say stick with the easy favorites and order a nice bottle of Spanish wine to wash it down with.
