A perfect starter for a great summer meal, try the white garlic and almond cold soup (P70). Fittingly served in a shot glass filled with grains of almonds, it features a pleasurable contrast of sweetness from the grapes, lightly smacked with garlic. The result? A refreshing tickle that’s surely a unique delicacy mom will love.
The calamari el bulli (P255), another fancy starter will painstakingly make anyone forget the old-style impression with Spanish food. Made from the squid’s black ink stains, the soft mollusk is covered into a batter resulting to a crispy and tasty dark finished, served with aioli dip and fennel leaves. For a family of bread lovers, the camembert and caramelized onions on flueted bread (180) is filling yet makes anyone wonder what’s in for the next equally scrumptious hot selection. Considered a top-notch for its simple preparations filled with semi-sweet onions, this bread creates a noble distinction when combined with the soft and creamy camembert without the unwanted guilt. And what’s a Spanish cuisine without the traditional chorizo? Another Tapella’s certified favourite, the chorizo in red wine (P245), are sure to delight any meat-lover moms not only for the taste but for its less oily preparation. Deliciously tender and flavourful, each cut is made special by the complementing combination of red wine and rich red oil.
Moving on to the heavier and more popular Spanish meal, Tapella incorporates a modern and alluring twist to paella with its manchego cheese, chicken, and shrimp paella (P500). Don’t wonder why Tapella’s contemporary version of this most-loved paella is a major hit. The robust rice, meat, and seafood fillings are made special by the pleasing taste of manchego (Spanish cheese made from ewe’s milk), perfectly melted on top of the hefty serving that can satisfy up to 3 persons per order.
A certified signature favorite, the Tapella indulgence is not complete without sampling its simple and meek version of the certified Angus beef steak (P2750 per kg). Slowly cooked on the hot plate right in front of the diners, the cooking process makes it an appetite-inducing experience. The secret remains to the prime choice of the freshest meat, plainly seasoned with salt which naturally allows the flavors to come out. While other steaks are complemented with sauce, Tapella’s steak is known for its potatoes and pimiento for a more palatable Spanish twist.
To sweeten up the great meal, Tapella is treating moms with one of its sinfully good desserts fresh from its pastry oven—the choco lava cake! Exploding with the rich and gooey molten chocolate center, this dessert will make everything memorable from start to finish.
