TaPalma – An event to participate, try and create
TaPalma – from Wednesday, October 31 and until November 4 in Palma, the tapas fair will be held and, for two years now, also cocktails. In addition, on Monday, October 29, two days before the beginning of the gastronomic route, the TaPalma 2018 Contest will take place, where all the restaurants that register in TaPalma have the right to participate in the contest but, in no case, the obligation.
One of the main attractions is the celebration of the TaPalma 2018 Competition in which all the restaurants that enroll in TaPalma can participate.
The winners of the last edition were Rodrigo Vallejo, chef of the restaurant Shamrock, with two golds in the category of tapas: Tapa Tapama ‘Picnic’ and thematic cover ‘Quelypizza marinera’. While in the cocktail mode the winner of the Gold was the bartender Víctor Abal, from MG Little Italy with his creation ‘Deseo de otoño’.
The event, which will take place in just over a month, is full of novelties and surprises, and with a single objective, such as increasing the number of visitors, as well as the quality and professionalism of the tapas and cocktails presented.
An event aimed solely at catering partners Mallorca (the association offers discounts and promotions for all who want to associate and participate in TaPalma), whose goal is not only to revitalize the city for a few days thanks to the restoration sector, but to position Mallorca, and very specifically its capital, as the nerve center of Spanish gastronomy.
With this gastronomic event, the organization together with Restauración Mallorca, aims to lengthen the tourist season by attracting its restaurants, not only to the local public, but to national and foreign tourism during those months where there is a decrease in the public and, therefore, less activity.
The event, which will take place in just over a month, is full of new features and surprises, and with a single objective, such as increasing the number of visitors, as well as the quality and professionalism of the tapas and cocktails presented. The purpose of TaPalma is to continue supporting a vital sector in the daily economic activity and, at the same time, it depends on the flow of tourists and the general public.
In 2018, more than 30 establishments will be participating and the routes will include the areas of: Santa Catalina, Paseo Marítimo, Central Palma, Blanquerna, Génova, Playa de Palma, Mercado de San Juan, and Marratxí.
