Eat This Now – Coca Mallorquina at JULIAN SERRANO
ELV isn’t quite sure what a coca mallorquina is, beyond being como la pissaladière francesca, y la pizza italiana (de invención posterior).
He thinks that means it’s a Spanish take on a French or Italian pizza — which is as good a description as any — but that doesn’t explain the unparallelled density of flavor packed into the sobrasada and Mahon cheese mallorquina in picture #1, or the slick richness — coming from the toasted aïoli over pisto-tinged tomatoes and onions in pictures #2-4 — all properly piled in perfect proportion on dense, olive oil bread.
Two of these terrific tapas contribute significant heft to a table filled with lighter ceviche and salad fare, and are best consumed with one of the bright, aromatic and reasonably-priced Albariños on the excellent wine list.
Best of all, they only cost $12/order, and one order is more than enough for two.
Just thought you’d like to know.
