There was a food tasting event last night at Calderon, owned by Monchet and several other partners.
Chef Bambi and Tricia asked him if I could tag along since it was a blogger's night.
The specialty of the restaurant is Spanish food cooked the way our grandmothers used to do it.
Calderon has new dishes and I was able to try all of it.
Sopa de Tomate, it was one of my favorites! I am a soup person.
El Cubano, roasted pork with mustard and dill pickles in between buttery crusty bread.
Bocadillo de Chorizo y Huevos
Loved this sandwich! I am thinking this is what I would love to have for breakfast all the time.
Ok!!! Not all the time but when I am off my diet.
Bocadillo de Jamon, Manchego y Pimiento
Crusty buttery baguette with manchego cheese, ham, pimiento and olives.
I had several servings of this dish. I especially enjoyed each forkful with the red pepper.
Tortilla de Patatas Y Cebollas
Gulas (mock eel)
Monchet said to break the yolks so it is runny. Rotos means broken.
Torta de Limon
Calderon has several branches:
1. F. Calderon St. Little Baguio, San Juan
2. Classica Condominium, H.V. Dela Costa St. Salcedo Village, Makati
3. East Capitol Drive, Barrio Kapitolyo, Pasig
My friends asked me what other food they serve at Calderon. I took a picture of the menu so they could see.
We will probably go to their Makati branch since it is nearer.
The food platters were delivered to our table non-stop! I was afraid to eat a lot of one dish because I might lack space in my stomach and won't be able to try the rest.
I even told Tricia that I was going to wear an eating dress.
Thank you so much for inviting me to the food tasting event!
My tummy thanks you all as well!
