Tapella - A night of Spanish Cuisine

You can count the months I am in the world of blogosphere in you fingers however, I have the opportunity to be invited in Tapela Event in Greenbelt 5. This event is about the launching of their new delicious menu.


We started the event with a short tutorial of how to cook Manchego Cheese, Chicken, Asparagus, Shrimp Paella demonstrated by Executive Chef Alexandria.

It is flavorful paella with cheese, chicken, asparagus, shrimp and the most expensive spice, the Saffron (but can be substituted by our very own Atsuete).

Next in line is the Cojonudos – fried quail eggs with pimiento and serrano ham in baguette and the juicy and savory duck fatty liver in bread. A bite sized appetizing dish only from Tapella.

And of course, who will forget the taste of Sangria? It is a cocktail of orange juice, red wine, liquor and brandy.

We also tried some trademark food of Tapella:

Chilled Garlic and Almond Shooters
 It is a cold soup with white garlic and almond and a perfect hors d'oeuvre of a meal.
Camembert with Caramelized Onions on Fluted Bread
 A mouth watering sandwich that surely can satisfy your taste buds.

Octopus with Paprika, Salt and Virgin Olive Oil

It is strangest food but definitely one of the main dishes of the night. It is an octopus seated in potatoes with different spices and a touch of virgin olive oil.

Chorizo Stewed in Red Wine
 A great dish that is highly suitable for “pulutan” :)

Calamares con Tinta Romana el Bulli

Amidst its color, you will taste the typical Calamares you are looking for.  Also, it is a great “pulutan”.

Beef Tenderloin Salpicado with White Beans
Here comes the protein, our own Beef Salpicao with a twist – combine with another protein rich food, the White Beans. 

Last but definitely not the least, the platter that will surely cling to your sweet tooth – the dessert plate. It consists of Apple Pie, Arroz Con Leche, Cheesecake, Rum Cake with whipped cream in the middle.

Thank you so much, Tapella.
