Feed your soul at Ibiza healthy eating hotspot Mikasa Restaurant, where brightly coloured plates bursting with nature’s goodness are the best way to start the day and the perfect accompaniment to a Marina Botafoch sunset.

Words: Abby Lowe

Famous for both its exceptional food and setting, Mikasa Restaurant is a favourite among locals and those in-the-know. The Ibiza healthy eating hotspot is located within the picturesque surroundings of Marina Botafoch – in the hotel of the same name, Mikasa Ibiza, and is centred on a plant-based kitchen that puts nature and sustainability to the fore. Each plate is a celebration of the bounty bestowed on us by Mother Nature, featuring a colourful carousel of clean, unprocessed ingredients that have been crafted to nourish mind, body and soul, while simultaneously packing an impressive flavour punch.

Breakfast at Mikasa Restaurant is served daily between 8.30am and 12.30pm, so start the day right with a vitamin-packed plate, juice or smoothie designed to enliven the senses. Sweet mango, papaya and passion fruit combine in the Tropical Heat; rich beetroot, carrot, orange and lemon come together in the Beet It; and the fiery ginger shot is just pure, pressed, immune-boosting ginger. Gut-friendly kombucha is also available at the Ibiza healthy restaurant, as well as a range of coffee, tea and matcha for those who need a caffeine kick.

A holistic approach is also applied to the cuisine at Mikasa Restaurant. Crumbly croissants — available with sweet or savoury fillings — are made from quinoa; tostadas are served on gluten-free carob and rice bread, then topped with fresh ingredients like avocado cream; peanut butter and banana or tomato; and bountiful bowls blend coconut yoghurt with homemade granola, mango and passionfruit, or porridge with apple, tahini, cinnamon and hemp seeds. Healthy mains include scrummy scrambled tofu with spinach and tomato salad; chickpea curry with spinach, mushrooms and crispy corn tortilla; and Spanish potato omelette with chipotle mayonnaise.

At dinnertime, the Ibiza healthy restaurant pulses to a different beat — the atmosphere noticeably ramping up as the sun goes down. Start by snacking on super tasty Mikasa Restaurant nibbles like herby falafel with juicy pineapple chutney; edamame with ginger and fermented lemons; or hearty warm cauliflower with black garlic and cumin alioli. Move onto tempting starters like Caesar salad with crunchy seitan; zesty Peruvian salad of corn, tomato, avocado, onion, chili, lime and coriander; and warm lentil salad with broccoli, beetroot, aubergine and cherry tomato.

Settling in for the rest of the starry night, select delicious mains including pumpkin-stuffed ravioli with truffle sauce; soba noodles with broccoli, green beans, spicy avocado, lime and marinated ginger; and baked smashed potatoes with spiced chickpeas, tamarind chutney and yoghurt sauce. Choose from the Mikasa Restaurant coconut cake with sautéed pineapple, or indulgent brownie with lemon confit and Ibizan salt for dessert, or complete the wholesome experience with sensational cocktails — the perfect accompaniment to exceptional views of the iconic Dalt Vila skyline.

Classics like ice-cold margaritas and mojitos are given a fresh twist, while new concoctions like the Coco Matcha-Do (pineapple and matcha tea infused Bacardí Carta Blanca Rum, orange, pineapple and coconut), and the Kyoto Affaire (Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru gin, matcha tea syrup, yuzu, lemon, ginger and cucumber) are the icing on the cake of this Ibiza healthy eating experience. Open to hotel guests and the public alike, Mikasa Restaurant invites diners to kick off their shoes, sit back and relish the unbeatable combination of sun, soul food and views.
