Tradición Samar the taste of the sea in Ibiza downtown
Located in a privileged location below the impressive wall of Dalt Vila we can find Tradición Samar. This new restaurant, opened in May 2017, offers a fusion of Mediterranean and southern cuisine. Its charming terrace is a perfect place to enjoy all the products that arrive directly from the sea.
Samar offers fish and seafood as its main products. They even include an original window called “fish market” where you find all kinds of seafood and pick those you desire.
Since the 2nd of November, between 13:00 and 22:00 you can enjoy some delicious dishes of the day and four weekly menus.This includes tempting starters, exquisite main dishes and irresistible desserts.
We started with some sophisticated Krystale oysters. These were the winners of the gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris for 6 consecutive years. Krystale oysters are characterized by their perfect balance of flesh and flavor. They are bred at a lower density than most of the oysters, so they have enough space to grow slowly.
We continue with some delicious saffron mussels with tender garlic toasts. In the restaurant, they tell us a curiosity about this dish: this type of tender garlic grows near the sea, this is why its flavor has marine notes and complements perfectly with the main ingredient.
For all lovers of this dish, every Thursday is celebrated with “The Night of the Mussel“. For just 15 euros you can enjoy an exquisite and varied tasting of mussels cooked in different ways accompanied by a glass of wine.
We also tried fried fish with vegetables, a delicious combination of prawns, squid, battered codfish and vegetables from Ibiza. It is an exquisite option perfect to share at a dinner with friends.
We decided to try one of the dishes of the day following the chef’s recommendation: codfish and alioli au Gratin with potato confit. It was the dish that surprised us the most, due to the delicate and soft taste of the alioli. The portions are quite big and the cooking of the codfish is just precise. We will definitely try it again. 🙂
For all those who are not fish lovers, series of alternative meat dishes are also offered, so no one is left behind! Among these dishes, we can find sirloin, bolognese lasagne, pork cheeks or batter-fried chicken breasts. We decided to go for the pork cheek with the red wine sauce. High-quality meat ful of flavor that melts in your mouth.
And finally, the sweetest bite: homemade apple and lemon cake. One of my favorites that takes me back to childhood.
Without a doubt, Tradición Samar left a good impression on us and we feel delighted to discover a new magic place full of flavor. Fresh and quality products at affordable prices, right in the downtown of Ibiza.
