Discovery Primea celebrates World Paella Day in honor of the iconic rice-based dish, a delicious representation of Spanish culture and cuisine.
September 2018 – Known for its extensive menu of flavorful Mediterranean fare, Restaurant Tapenade at Discovery Primea celebrates Spanish culture and traditions with a 4-day feast beginning on September 20, showcasing the noteworthy flavors of this iconic specialty dish.

Located at the ground floor of Discovery Primea, Restaurant Tapenade is open daily from 6:30 to 10:30 AM for breakfast, 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM for lunch, and 6:00 to 11:30 PM for dinner. I love the interiors of Tapenade. It's very cozy and sophisticated. 
Diners are invited to partake of the festivity starting on World Paella Day, Thursday, September 20. Guests may upgrade their Salad Room experience for an additional PHP300++ to add unlimited servings of paella to the hearty selection of local and imported produce, charcuterie, cheeses, and fresh seafood. 
To start off, we had an order of red wine which was mixed with Manille calamansi liqueur. It's refreshing and you would barely notice the alcohol. A good pair for the dishes from the salad room and paella. 
From the salad room, I love the prosciutto, gravlax, and the cheese sticks.

Next up, are the much-awaited paella
The paella’s popularity stems from its abundance and winning combination of toasted rice, filling meats, and flavorful seafood, making it an ideal showpiece for meals and gatherings with family and friends. Discovery Primea’s Executive Chef Luis Chikiamco presents his own variations of this classic festive rice dish, available only during the 4-day feast. The spread features Paella al Chilindrón made with chicken and lamb; Paella de Champiñones made with shiitake, portobello, and button mushrooms; and Paella con Jamón, a festive combination of majestic ham and quezo de bola that oozes of nostalgia. Each paella is prepared carefully, cooked over an open flame, and served on the piping hot pan for guests to enjoy.

Personally, I could not pick among the three which is the best one. Each type is unique and delectable. Everything is a must-try!
Food lovers and fans of Spanish fare may enjoy these dishes and more starting on World Paella Day and throughout the whole weekend. The Salad Room with unlimited servings of paella is offered for lunch and dinner at a special price of PHP1,091 nett per person on September 20 and PHP1,200 nett per person from September 21 to 23. Rates include taxes and service charge.

Aside from the unlimited paella, we also had some ala carte orders:
Fritto Misto. Crispy fried squid, shrimp, and snapper with lemon-garlic mayo. Crispy on the outside and soft inside. I love how the squid was not chewy at all. 
Lamb Chops "Scottadito." Tender and good.
Patatas Bravas. A spicy potato treat.
Stone-Baked Feta Cheese. Sun-dried tomatoes, capers, Greek Metaxa brandy, honey. The cheese is good and I like the brandy and honey mix a lot. 
Polvo. Bite-sized octopus. I also like that it's not chewy. 
Gianduja Cake. Chocolate-hazelnut mousse, crunchy praline, and salted caramel banana. This is really good. 
Manchego Cheesecake. Fresh imported berries and coulis. Had this for takeout. Also good. 
Cheers from The KTG!
