Help yourselves to a Spanish feast at Marco Polo this October

In line with Spain's upcoming National Day.

To celebrate the National Day of Spain on 12 October, Spanish people love to pig out on varied and delicious traditional Spanish cuisine.

According to a release from Marco Polo, taking this opportunity, Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, Gateway Hotel and Prince Hotel are delighted to share the happiness with foodies by presenting a Spanish festival in October.

Customers will find sumptuous Spanish cuisine during the lunch and dinner buffets at Cafe Marco, Three on Canton and add@Prince.

Classic Paella is undoubtedly one of Spain’s signature dishes. Rolf Jaeggi, the Executive Chef of Marco Polo Hotels – Hong Kong, integrates a wide variety of the freshest seafood including lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels and squid, together with saffron, the requisite seasoning to present the classic paella, cooked with a specialised shallow pan.

By adding fresh tomatoes and bell peppers, the dish is amazing with its colourful presentation, showcasing the rich and vibrant culture of Spain.

Varied from simple toast with cheese to meat or seafood; from cold cuts to hot dishes, tapas are usually accompanied by wine in Spain.

Our chef brings over twenty bite-size savoury tapas in rotation to the lunch and dinner buffets every day, providing a wide-ranging taste of Spain to the gastronome. Cheese toast, served with pieces of cheese, pickles and bell peppers is light and crispy, which whet your appetite.

Spanish omelet, characterised by its thickness, is another traditional and popular tapas in Spain which is made with egg, sliced potatoes, olive and onion. Giving off a rich and creamy texture, Avocado gazpacho, served cold is also a popular dish in Spain.

Fresh vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers are blended together into cold soup. With pieces of avocado added, it offers you with a refreshing and healthy taste.

Other standout tapas include Octopus salad with paprika, Ajo Blanco glee in a spoon, Marinated sardines, Garlic shrimps and Stuffed mussel.

Roasted chicken with herbs, Mallorca stuffed squid, Beef Medallions, Sea-bass with saffron-vermouth sauce and more, over ten different dishes are available on the buffet table.

One of the highlighted dishes is Beef tongue filets. Nicely cooked with palatable gravy, the thick-sliced beef tongue brings out a deep flavour with tender meat.

Almond is commonly used in both main dishes and desserts of Spanish cuisine to accentuate the overall taste of food. Our chef meticulously presents Chicken stew with peppers and almonds to foodies.

By adding slice of almond, olive and bell peppers, the chicken thigh stays succulent and delectable with almond and peppers scented.

This October, come and experience an exotic culinary journey, as well as the Spanish food culture with your family and friends!
