EL ESPAÑOL: Authentic Spanish Cuisine

baytalmal

To say that Castilian cuisine is one of the recent greatest influences in local gastronomy is an understatement.

There always seems to be a constant penchant for the savory enticing flavors of Spanish fare. From tasty paella to palatable gambas, there’s just no getting away from the luring richness of regional flavors Iberian cookery has to offer.

Facade of EL ESPAÑOL

What better way to satiate this drooling over than to head on to the cuisine haven that is El Español. It boasts of authentic Spanish gourmet and a wide range of delectable bounty of spices that originate from no less than the different locales of mainland Spain.  With Chef Pedro taking the lead, you can be sure you’re plumped for a treat.

Chef Pedro and the rest of the staff!

Chef Pedro attributes his culinary flair to his Cuban roots, who he says have a knack for cooking just as Filipinos do. This innate clever joined up traveling with entrée art that made him the fine hash slinger he is today. This is plausibly why since its prelude in June of 2016, El Español has been at its prime and has cemented its place as one of the most sought-after Spanish dish-serving joints.

INTERIORS:

The restaurant is a merging of traditional and modern Spanish mileu. He believes that bringing together the festive Castilian adornment and  contemporary interiors needs to find a balance, a little too much of the murals and details might be disquieting. Perhaps this is why the art piece selections were curated meticulously. Walls are graced with paintings by local Filipino artists rendering their depictions of Spanish culture.

Guests get to revel their eyes with visual of the Corrida de Toros, more popularly known as Bullfighting, a traditional spectacle in Spain. Adding to the panoramic outline is the still life of the Fandango, a renown buoyant dance of the Castilians.

The restaurant features an open kitchen that gives the guests a peek of the intriguing visual of kitchen action with chef taking the center stage as he hustles and work up their appetite. This must be the perfect way to see how Chef Pedro takes accurate and diligent measures to clinch quality serving in first-rate platings and presentations.
