Hola! Having just come back from a whirlwind summer trip to Spain and witness the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, I would like to bring back my experience (including my new culinary tips learnt) and share with you all the wonderful flavours from the Basque.
The usual drill applies here: food will be made fresh on the premises with lots of love and the arrangement will be in the spirit of communal dining (after all, everything in life is best when shared!). I will also make a few pitchers of sangria on the day (again, something I learnt whilst in Barcelona) to help break the ice between and get you quickly acquainted with fresh faces in the initial mingling session on the balcony.
That said, please bring a bottle of wine / social lubricant as reinforcement to ensure the conversation continues to flow in a lively and spirited manner throughout the evening :)
As for the menu, here it is (NB: tentative and could change on the day subject to availability of ingredients).
Welcome drink: Summer sangria (NB: the prelude on the balcony)
Assorted charcuterie board with roasted vegetables
Pan Con Tomate (tomato bread)
Pulpo a la Gallega (Grilled Octopus with Potatoes) / Spanish paprika garlic prawns (as not always easy to source fresh octopus in hong kong)
Spanish roast chicken
Smoky Spanish potatoes
Crisp mixed green salad
Assorted cheese and fruit
Unlimited coffee and tea
Price: 900 HKD + BYO
