(SPOT.ph) Two years since Las Flores began churning out their versions of Spanish delicacies and the menu has finally been updated. Don’t worry: your favorites are still there just-more.
Croquetas de Jamon Iberico
New flavors of croquettas are bringing out the best in the two original. The roast chicken and chorizo croquettas double in size, competing for attention with newcomers, large globules of Iberico Ham (P225) and Quezo de Cabra (P225) or goat’s cheese. It's the same golden crumb-encased ball of creamy mash with flavors that have been mixed and enhanced with a bevy of ingredients.
Huevos Estrellados con Shiitake
In replace of the original Huevos Estrellados with Morcilla or blood sausage are five new versions of the fried egg-topped potato wedges. Jamon Serrano, Gambas, Shiitake Mushrooms, Chorizo, and Foie Gras (P245 to P525)-any of these five stack up more richness to the already indulgent dish.
Paella de Chorizo
The same treatment was given to the paella. The Paella de Chorizo is creamy and dotted with small logs of chorizo and dollops of aioli. A vegetarian and mushroom alternative (P495) allows the health-conscious to a guilt-free feast. Still, a more luxurious option would be the Parrillada de Verduras con Salsa Romesco (P475) where an array of fresh vegetables including green asparagus, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and eggplant-all lightly kissed by the grill-revel in an earthy pepper-based sauce.
Lomo Iberico and Quezo Idiazabal
The list of charcuteria has also been given a boost with seven different cheeses-Stilton, Gruyere, and Brie de Meaux among many-and five embutidos or cold cuts, like Fuet, Lomo Iberico, and Salchichon Iberico to choose from and enjoy your wine with.
Mousse de Foie con Mango
Xocolate, Pa, Oli I Sal
For dessert, the Blackberry Egg Flan (P275) makes for a light and tarty end while the Xocolate, Pa, Oli I Sal, which translates to chocolate mousse with thin and crisp bread slices, a drizzle of extra virgin and olive oil, and a sprinkling of salt, plays with your palate by throwing different textures and flavors-sweet, salty, smooth, crunchy-that marry into one very interesting treat. Or turn the page to the signature drinks or Beronia wine and toast the end of your Spanish feast. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
