Las Paellas Cafe

Oli was darling enough to keep his promise....to wait for me ........wait until I get back from Bali to watch NO RESERVATIONS =) hehehe Yup yup. Better late than never we did. Our friend Chie joined us in for a night of romance and cooking! YEHEY!

But..but..first thing is first...we had to have dinner first. Now, one should not watch a romantic movie about chefs cooking with an empty stomach, right? Right!

We tried Las Paellas Cafe at the 2nd floor or Promenade. We were kinda surprised that the menu consisted of dishes that were not of Spanish origin. They have Chicken Terriyaki, pastas and paninis ;Phehehe

Nevertheless, we sticked with the house Spanish specialties.

Fabada

It's soup made of beans, chorizos, morcilla, pancetta and saffron. This was favorful, but I just don't know if it tastes authentic because I don't think I have had real Fabada =)

Salpicao Rice

This is Chie's order. She said it was ok but was kinda disappointed by the few beed pieces (bitin?) hehehe

Spanish Chicken with Java Rice

My order. This was like chicken bbq slathered with sauce used for baby back ribs....and they put way too much of it! hehehe The Java rice was way tooo saucy and did not compliment the already sauce ladened chicken...para bang you want plain rice pa after eating it! ;P hahahah

Lengua


Well, Oli said it was good naman...real lengua here so not fair enough.

The price range is affordable here. What caught our interest was the order of the neighboring table....a pitcher of SANGRIA. The pitcher looked ice-y cold and had chopped fruits in them and served on goblets with more chopped fruits and ice! Looks sooo refreshing! Must try that soon =)

We then proceeded to watch No Reservations. It's a romantic movie about two chefs falling in love =) Sweet! Good thing it ended happily. Some found it cheesey....but I loved it! hahahaha

We moved to Grilla to cap the night with cheap wine and matched it with cheese sticks...para wine and cheese d ba? ;P hehehehe
