Question Dips!

Hola all,

A very trivial enquiry but any recommendations would be much appreciated!

As a bit of a houmous and grissini addict, often having these with salad for dinner when frazzled after a mad day at work, where could I find good quality 'dips' in the Port - for those evenings when we are too hot or weary to venture beyond our balcony?

Muchas Gracias

I've discovered just the thing for you MairiCladach

Was going to a write up about this shop and you've spurred me to do it! I think the shop has been here a couple of years but it was the first time we had ventured in and we loved it.

This wonderful little shop is on the back road, heading towards Pollensa, called Typic Balear or something like that (will check next time I pass)
It sells a lot of balsamic vinegars flavoured with delicious things like cranberry,orange and lots more. The one we bought had dates and figs infused in it and is delicious. They are all displayed in barrels and the lovely guy who runs the shop lets you sample them. During his demonstration be prepared for the 'jump out of your skin moment' Not saying anymore!!

Now onto the dips There is a round table in the shop with little dishes filled with about 6 different dips,which you can try with bread. They are actually sold in jars as a dry ingredient which you then mix with water, vinegar and or mayonnaise. You only need 3 teaspoons of the dry mix and this makes enough dip for about 4 people, so one jar will last quite a long time...and no waste. We bought the Mediterranean and the patatas bravas one which you can you use as a dip or serve with potatoes. The Mediterranean one is also fab as a marinade for chicken.

There is also a wine shop out the back and a few typically Mallorcan and not tacky souvenirs.

Well worth a visit

Thanks Debz - sounds lovely. Never knew it existed but now look forward to visiting and trying some dips to go with the wine on the balcony

There is also a similar shop in Puerto Pollensa on the Juan XX111 its one shop up from Calle Mestral just up from Micer the photgraphic shop. I bought some very nice raspberry flavoured balsamic and he too does the dip mix.

Just been searching as I knew someone had posted about this shop last year. So we all sort of knew the name and where it is...it's just hard to explain

Made the patatas bravas dip this evening and had with bread, cheese and pickles on the balcony...washed down with a bottle of Mortitx Flaires
