Formentor takes its island roots so seriously that the music they play in-house comes from Balearic radio station IB3. origins to such an extent that the musical thread is provided by IB-3. 'It's our signature and what makes us most proud,' they confess of their famous 'ensaimada' pastry, which ferments for 20 hours and has light cream, heavy cream, truffle or sobrassada. Try the one with angel's hair and spicy 'sobrassada' sausage, or the apricot one, where sweet and sour combine in a happy treat. During the week you have to order them, but for holidays they've always got plenty. You need to order those with angel hair, and you can also order huge ones that are tailor-made to the size you want. Anyone who really flips for merchandising will also opt for a bottle of 'aimada', ensaimada liqueur. The Mallorquan identity of the place, which is frequented by the Balearic community, is integral: every day they offer a sweet or savory island speciality that just might help anyone who thinks the only authentic ensaimadas are in Mallorca.
