Ibiza restaurants: Mediterranean Lobster & Prawn Ravioli at El Portalon
Masterful is the best word to describe this dish from El Portalon. Zebra striped homemade ravioli stuffed with Mediterranean lobster, local prawn and island-made stracciatella sit daintily in a deeply aromatic suquet de peix – the Catalan cousin to the French bisque.
The pasta itself is a work of art requiring hours of rolling, folding and stretching by hand to achieve perfectly proportioned stripes. The stuffing contains a drop of broth making the light dumpling a juicy morsel to bite into. Creamy with hints of the sea, the tender ravioli and velvety bisque is not only a crowning achievement in the fine dining world but also utterly delicious.
