Anya’s Best of Spain

RAMBLA’s squid ink paella is a highlight at Anya Resort Tagaytay’ “Hola!” dinner.

THERE’S NO need to fly to Spain to experience its food as Anya Resort Tagaytay celebrates its first anniversary on July 14 with a one-night only “Hola!” dinner prepared by chef Ruben Beltran, Executive Chef at Rambla. With over 20 years of experience, Mr. Beltran is known for the unique twists he puts on Spanish food. After working as a sous chef in Les Pres d’Eugenie Restaurant, a three-star Michelin star restaurant in France, then sous chef at Vincci Estrella del Mar Hotel in Malaga, Spain, earlier this year he made his way to Rambla Rockwell. The menu he prepared for this special celebration will feature his signature infusion style of cooking where he blends spices and flavors. From tasty tapas to seafood and traditional roasts, this Spanish feast is all about making the most of the best local produce found in Tagaytay. Guests will start with a buffet selection of tapas, from jamon iberico al corte, anchovy air-baguette with piparras cream and grilled vegetables, to parmesan croquetas in truffle sauce. Then comes the traditional taste of Spain with a juicy pork jowl and chipotley dressing, paired with the chef’s specialty, paella negra, made with fresh mussels and clams, and flavorful saffron aioli. For dessert, one can choose refreshing sangria-soaked watermelon cubes, or milk and ginger ice cream, or torta de santiago — a light cake made with almonds and lemon zest — with white chocolate matcha. A variety of fine Spanish wines and bottomless sangria will be available. Limited slots for the “Hola!” dinner at Anya Resort and Residences Tagaytay are available for P1,995 net per person on July 14.
