Most people love their neighborhood the way it is. You have daily routines and favorite places and expect to find them unaltered: the grocery store next door, the regular frequented café or bar, the small movie theater around the corner, the newspaper stand. I am just the same. But I’m also curious about changes. One of the many reasons why I live in a city like Palma. There is a constant change – for better of for worse – and always something new to discover. For example the new offshoot of Es Rebost.
Helmut Clemens founded his restaurant Es Rebost about four years ago on Av. de Jaume III – an unusual neighborhood for a place that advertised „100% natural Mallorcan Food“. But his dedication to fresh local products from sustainable gardens on the island soon attracted locals as well as travelers. I liked Es Rebost from the first crispy salad on and introduced it on my blog (100% mallorquin: Es Rebost).
Recently, Helmut Clemens opened another „pantry“ (the literal meaning of rebost) on Carrer dels Oms. Open for breakfast, lunch and any time in between, with a nicely stacked bar and a tasty menu of small dishes plus freshly squeezed juices, llonguets (the typical Mallorcan buns), coffee and home made desserts – to stay or to go. And Es Rebost got a new motto: „Fast Slow-Food“ is a nice play on words!
