Spanish food lovers have long been raving about Rambla’s Catalan-inspired cuisine and delicious cocktails. Named after the famed street in old Barcelona, the two-storey restaurant tucked away in Joya Tower along Plaza Drive is an intimate space to enjoy everything from small bites to cold cuts and appetizers and their famous paella flavors.
Owned by Spanish locals, authenticity is high on their list while still satisfying the Pinoy palate who loves flavorful and tasty food like their Cuchinillo paella and the pulpo hummus, just to name a few. It’s also a must to know they serve a mean gin & tonic during happy hour daily starting at 3pm where your second drink is at 50% off!
Below are two appetizers that are simple yet extremely satisfying to the taste buds, both one ought to try on their next visit.
The Tartar De Atún Con Mayonesa de Wasabi (Tuna Tartare) is simply cones of tuna with wasabi mayo presented in a moon-like ceramic ball for drama. The tuna is fresh and cool to the taste, complementing beautifully with the crisp and light batter of the cone. Perfect with a sauvignon blanc.
The Grilled Sea Bass with Creamy Saffron Snow Peas is a new way of presenting and eating the famed fish. The nicely seasoned cubes are given a kick when taken with a bit of the garnish and sauce.
Rambla is located at the Ground Floor of Joya Lofts and Towers.
