Ibiza restaurants: Sliced Aubergine & Parmesan at Aubergine Ibiza

When a restaurant is named for one of the Mediterranean’s most popular vegetables, it makes sense for its menu to pay testament to its namesake via a dish, and the signature sliced aubergine at Aubergine Ibiza is indeed taste-sensational.

A local twist on the classic Italian-style parmigiana, long, thin slices of aubergine – plucked straight from the onsite garden – are slowly baked with layers of ripe tomato and sharp Parmesan until the edges crisp up j-u-u-s-t right. Served with a complementary side salad of rocket and cherry tomatoes, there’s no finer tribute to this humble vegetable than this in Ibiza.
