One Week Only: Tapas with an Asian Twist at La Paloma

La Paloma in trendy Sai Ying Pun has invited chef Álvaro “El Palanca” Ramos to create a seasonal tasting menu with an Asian twist. The Madrileño travelled across Asia and opened the award-winning Tomatito in Shanghai, and now he’s in town to give diners a peek into the perfect marriage of Spanish flavours and Asian ingredients.

There’ll be seven classic Spanish dishes to please the palate. We particularly fancy the melt-in-the-mouth short ribs over a bed of saffron paella, while the passion fruit, sweet pepper and salted caramel Catalan cream is the perfect finale to a great meal. Check out the menu:

Tortita de camarones
Andalusian shrimp fritters with El Palanca aioli
