Ibiza is not only known by its clubs, but also by its wide variety of dishes. Due to the fact that Ibiza is a mixture of many cultures, you can find exotic dishes that you will not find anywhere else, for example: The Phoenicians brought Mojama, which is a form of air-cured tuna. The Romans incorporated other important ingredients such as figs, olives, grapes, and wine, and the moors incorporated sugar cane and rice.|
As other Mediterranean regions, Ibiza's cuisine is based mainly in fish and seafood, that is why it is common to mix seafood and meats all together. Some of the most important traditional dishes are: "Gazpacho" (cold tomato soup), "Paella", "Arroz de Matanzas", "Gambas al Ajillo" and "Fried squid."
