New dishes, Christmas Meals and the new Catering menu at Tapella by Gaudi in Greenbelt 5

What I love about the holidays is the opportunity to reunite with friends and at the same time gather with family to celebrate Christmas and to welcome the New Year as well.  One of my favorite dining places is Tapella by Gaudi, I love that they are tucked in their own private corner in Greenbelt 5 and they serve delectable Spanish dishes by Executive Chef Robert Spakowski. 

Last week, I received an invitation from Tapella to come visit them again and try some of their new dishes on the menu and also to share with all of you what they have in store for their Christmas and New Year offerings.  How can I say no? 

On Friday lunch, being welcomed by Tapella's Executive Chef, Robert Spakowski


Here are some of the new dishes I've tried at Tapella:

Mixed greens with candied walnuts and goat cheese with tamarind balsamic dressing
Php 200.00

This salad is served with the freshest greens, and I loved that it had the right amount of balsamic dressing combined with the taste of sweet crunchy walnuts.  It comes in a big serving too which can be shared by 3 to 4 people.


Mango gazpacho with salmon roe and crab
Php 175.00

It's my first time to try a cold soup dish and one with mango too, so it was pretty interesting.  But, I loved it!  Especially, when you have the soup with a bit of the crab and the salmon roe bursts open in your mouth and it releases that flavor.  Yum!


Sisig, sausage and egg on bed of shoe string potatoes
Php 275.00

Who doesn't love sisig?  Here's Tapella's take on that popular dish, but this time with fried shoe string potatoes at the bottom.  The dish is very tasty and would be best to have with a happy drink (whether beer, sangria or wine perhaps).


Truffle cream pasta
Php 395.00

I wish you could scratch and sniff the screen so that you get a whiff of the aroma of the truffle infused on this pasta dish.  It's now on my "favorite pasta dish" list.  It's also served with fried prosciutto on top.  You just have to try this! 


Red snapper in white wine parsley sauce with mussels and mushrooms
Php 550.00

This is a light and healthy seafood meal.


Lava cake
Php 150.00

Every restaurant has a perfect dessert on the menu, and at Tapella, this is my favorite - the lava cake!  It is served warm, moist and it melts in your mouth.  It's the perfect dessert to end your meal.  I wish they make bigger versions of this for a birthday cake. 


Alright, I know you're all planning reunions with friends and family gatherings this Christmas season and also to celebrate the coming of the New Year.  Well friends, if you haven't booked a restaurant yet, Tapella has created the perfect food pairings for your group.  The Tapella Christmas Meals (Menu de Navidad) is available at Tapella until January 3, 2016.



Also, you can use your BDO MasterCard Visa or any BDO Debit Card and avail of the FREE Tortilla De Patatas Y Cangrejo or Muslos De Pollo Frito for every Php 1,500 single receipt.
