A native of China, Weifan Wang – known to her clients as Sandra – has lived in Spain for 28 years. She came to Mallorca to open Made in China, having previously had a restaurant in the upper-class Madrid suburb of Pozuelo de Alarcón.
Open less than a year (at time of writing) her Palma restaurant is a must-visit for fans of Chinese food – and there’s not a red dragon in sight! Instead, the street-view restaurant décor is tasteful contemporary, with a few large monochrome photos of China on the walls.
Open for lunch and dinner (closed Sunday nights), they offer weekday set lunch (12,50€), tasting (22€ plus IVA), and à la carte menus – the latter including vegetable and tofu dishes, and the classic Peking duck. For us, its location would make it a lunchtime choice.
From the set menu we chose from four starters, three accompaniments, and six mains – including tasty prawns with curry sauce, and duck with orange sauce; a drink and dessert or coffee/tea are included. Chef Pan Ming Hui – Ming for short – creates flavourful Chinese food using authentic ingredients. Pleasant service is overseen by Sandra. Spanish and few Mallorcan wines offered.
We love…the décor and great-value lunch menu.
