Review on Sa Pastanaga Restaurant
Sa Pastanaga which means carrot in English has been a bastion of vegetarian cuisine since it opened its doors in the old town of Palma in April 1998. Located in a narrow street just off Carrer dels Oms, it has a modern décor with a white painted beamed ceiling, wooden flooring and mirrors adorning the dove-grey walls. Smart high-backed cream chairs are set against polished wood tables laid with pretty vases of flowers.
The restaurant is only open for lunch Monday to Friday, when it serves a good-value four course menu based on fresh seasonal ingredients procured from the nearby Mercat de l'Olivar. Bread, olives and a carafe of water is included in the price which could kick off with a first course of salad or freshly squeezed vegetable or fruit juice. Follow on with cream of pumpkin soup with shitake mushrooms or pasta such as linguine with pine nuts, spinach and mascarpone, before a third course of onion and potato tart. When it comes to desserts enjoy tiramisu with fresh strawberries or apple tart paired with mascarpone.
There's a concise wine list to complement the food with options available by the glass.
