Itching to catch the show and party the night away away at the Ibiza Beach Club but don’t want to stuff yourself too much with Churrasco Buffet? Ibiza Beach Club small plate tapas should be your choice of tummy stuffer. You can choose to sit in the air conditioned area or take in the nice breeze outdoors.
There was a number of us in the group so we got to try a mix of their different tapas, both Mediterranean and Asian inspired.
We started with a Marinated Mushroom Salad (P320) that was earthy and refreshing.
Jamon Serrano Bruschetta (P320). Irene is the one who really enjoys the cured meats but she has been influencing me to try and enjoy them also. Nice crunch from the tomato bruschetta to complement the mild flavors of the jamon and the nutty flavors of the manchego cheese.
Garlic Shrimp (P320). This is similar to the Spanish gambas but they’ve added butter for a more indulgent flavor.
Hummus (P300). Grilled flat bread served with the traditional chickpea dip and two other vibrant dips, pumpkin and beetroot. Unsurprisingly, my favorite was the sweet pumpkin followed by the reddish beetroot which was tangy and sweet. Perfect matches for the smoky flat bread.
Italian Meatballs (P340). A simple small plate with beef meatballs simmered in tomato sauce topped with sheep’s milk cheese.
Paella de Mariscos (P520). Bomba rice with locally caught seafood and saffron. I think this would be better taste and presentation wise if served in a small paellera instead of this ceramic bowl. I felt the rice was a bit on the dry side but the highlight was the sweet local seafood drizzled with a little lemon.
Spiky Shau Mai (P320). Visually interesting with nice crunchy textures but the meat filling could have been better seasoned.
They also have a couple of desserts available like churros, souffle, Movenpick ice cream or Panacotta (P340). This was very ordinary and I suggest ordering the ice creams instead.
You can catch the entertainment outside, jump into the outdoor jacuzzi or just dance the night away, you’ll surely enjoy the Ibiza Beach Club.
