Nikkei Cuisine Meets The Med
Inside luxury boutique hotel Can Alomar, you can find the restaurant De Tokio A Lima on the 3rd floor of the property. This boutique gem is set in a magnificently restored 19th century mansion, built on what was previously a 15th century gothic palace. With service and substance to match its on-trend aesthetic, this restaurant is a must for fans of good food and impeccably styled dinner settings.
Eat indoors or alfresco on the large terrace above the prestigious Borne, with treetop views. The interior is stylishly decorated with wood floors, colourful artworks, modern tables and dark walls. There is plenty of light as the floor to ceiling windows lead out onto the terrace. We recommend having an appetiser and drinks in the terrace, and eventually moving indoors if you need a bit of a quieter setting or it begins to get cooler.
The hearty food options are numerous and caters to a wide range of cuisines; from Japanese, Peruvian to stylish Mediterranean dishes. The cuisine has proven successful (and trendy) with its fusion of 3 worlds with an à la carte menu sectioned into starters, raw and marinated, from the stove, and sweet temptations.
The head chef is Germán de Bernardi, a well known professional in Mallorca who has worked in many renowned kitchens; Hotel Maricel, Bens d'Avall and Read's Hotel. His specialty is the raw and marinated dishes which he mastered during his sprint in Madrid when he was with Ricardo Sanz from restaurant Kabuki.
We were impressed with the ceviche, it consisted of a traditional, white fish (Gallo de San Pedro) and tiger's milk (a juice of lime juice, lemon and orange, as well as yellow pepper, celery, coriander, purple onion and a pinch of salt). This combines heavenly with the tasty shrimp fritters with orange, hot pepper and lime sauce. There are a good selection of food cooked from the stove; the rack of lamb, black thai rice with curcuma and coconut sauce seems like a nice touch as well as the fish ravioli. We learned that locals are known to head to the restaurant for a taste of their creamy lemon from Sóller with its sorbet and meringue option. You can never go wrong with the local's favourite!
De Tokio A Lima is a promising stop off, for their Mallorquin elegance and the variety of utterly unique food options made with local and international ingredients. Favoured by locals and foodie tourists alike, we had recommend booking a meal whilst staying in Palma de Mallorca.
