Review on Vandal Palma
Vandal is a gastronomic hotspot in the lively area of Santa Catalina in the city of Palma, Mallorca. Occupying a corner location, it has a lurid graffiti exterior in black and blood red designed by Enrique del Río from Aerosolwork. Inside the restaurant has a contemporary décor with an elegant urban industrial vibe, tables are well-spaced tables together with bar seating, overlooked by the open kitchen.
The brainchild behind this venture is chef Bernabé Caravotta and his friend Sebastián Pérez, who is the sommelier and restaurant manager. Born in Argentina with Italian roots, Bernabé has climbed the culinary ladder in esteemed restaurants such as two-starred Michelin restaurants Noma in Denmark, Mirazur Restaurant in France, as well at The Blue Elephant and he is the co-founder of the Japanese Momiji restaurant in Valencia. His CV also includes eight years as the creative chef of restaurants Forn de Sant Joan, Ombu, and Koa where his ceviche won the first prize of SaTapa2014.
The kitchen sends out artistically displayed dishes that roam the globe with breathtaking flavours from far flung locations such as Argentina, Peru, Italy, Asia, France, Russia and Japan as well as the Mediterranean. Enjoy offerings along the line of Japanese-Peruvian marinated eel with foie gras and shisho, or roasted octopus with lime gel, creamy potato and paprika emulsion, finishing with a dessert called 'Memories of My Childhood' which pairs candy and popcorn.
There's a carefully compiled wine list together with creative cocktails by award winning mixologist Matías Irirarte.
