The sought-after coca is now available in Santa Catalina
The market in Santa Catalina conceals a must-visit. Maria Solivellas and Katja Wöhr have been welcoming us since last Saturday in their new ‘trast’ – with the number 13 – specializing in ‘cocas’ to go. La Coquería has been born as a street food stand with conscience and consciousness: to make eating an event that promotes responsible and fair trade, through a chain of local suppliers of organic products. ‘Coca’ is reinterpreted here and lightened by eliminating butter and using ‘xeixa’ flour, a local variety of wheat. The dough is stretched and baked as needed and they only use seasonal products.
The ‘coca’ that Maria Solivellas has been offering for more than eight years in the restaurant Ca na Toneta in Caimari, is now on the streets. Katja Wöhr, founder of Gusto Mundial Balearides and Flor de Sal d’es Trenc, is the other half of La Coquería, with soul from beginning to end. At stall number 13, with its strong retro look and nostalgic items such as the siphon and crochet curtains, you will find a variety four ‘cocas’ (‘jonquillo’, artichokes, confit onion and rosemary), two traditional soups, and a spectacular carob brownie. Drinks are totally in tune with the philosophy of La Coquería: almond milk, lemonade, pomada (the typical ‘menorquin’ drink made with gin and fresh lemon juice), vermouth . . .
