'food is about making an interaction wth the ingredients. If you talk to them, they will always tell you a story ...' -  Jose Antonio

The Golden Date

Our friend John Bunag won the golden date with celebrity Vince Velasco and with this privilege can bring two friends with him

Lucky enough to join  John Bunag with Alex Alcantara and enjoy Spanish Tapas and wine while getting to know Vince Velasco

It was my first time in this branch and like the other Barcino restaurants Ive been to , it was a study in bright yellow colors matched with dark wood



FOOD

We enjoyed the following:


CHORIZO AND CHEESE PLATTER P1700

What's not to love about a plate of chorizo , cheese, grapes and crostini? Perhaps its price? To be fair it can be shared by 2-4 people. It was really delicious though but pricey


Paella Negra P600
A perennial favorite of the family, I am so happy somebody ordered this for our carbs. The flavors and textures of squid ink paella never grows old.  I  just love getting to the bottom of the pan and scooping out the soccarat or "tutong"  (but not burnt though)  in local parlance.

GAMBAS AL AJILLO P790
Quite expensive. But prawns were huge and succulent and tasted amazing. I can not complain. You get what you pay for

CHIPIRONES ENCEBOLLADOS P530
This dish of grilled baby squid with caramelized onions topped with potato shoestring in white wine sauce is a must try.  Im really curious how they make it possible to grill the squid just right so that it is still soft, tender and succulent when served.


TEJAS DE COCO Y ALMENDRAS P290
Think Lengua de Gato made of coconut and almond crisps drizzled with blueberry jam. It is less sweeter  and thicker in texture than the much-loved lengua and the blueberry gave it an interesting twist.
TARTA DE MANZANA  ALA MODE P320 

Think Apple Tart  but thinner and rectangular in shape. Loved the puff pastry underneath and how it combined with the tartness of the thin slices of apples. Perfect with ice cream!


Overall...

It really pays to be a Zomato Gold member. You get perks and privileges only an exclusive member enjoys like this golden date with a celebrity in addition to your 1+1 food or 2+2 drinks in Zomato Gold restaurant.
