Hey Foodies~ We’ve been frequenting LaLaport BBCC a lot these days for the exciting events happening there and of course for our shopping-spree! As foodies, what we do notice is the huge variety of food you can get there! We know you’ll be having a hard time choosing which restaurant to try so this time we have it all planned for you. Let’s try Spanish cuisine and some desserts!
Marta’s Kitchen is where you go for authentic Spanish gastronomic delights, most known for their appetising tapas and paellas. All dishes are made with Marta’s home recipes with quality ingredients which bring the best taste of Spanish to diners. The flavours definitely stand out at this restaurant, check out what we tried!
We went with some of Marta’s recommendations:
Gambas al ajilo
The Gambas al ajilo is a Spanish dish of chilli and garlic prawns, pan fried in plenty of extra virgin olive oil. It’s served with spongy bread, best dipped in the olive oil and with the fresh tiger prawns, chilli and garlic spread on top.
Champiñones al ajillo
The pan-fried mushrooms seasoned with garlic and lemon is a refreshing serve! It’s bursting with juiciness and comes with a satisfying lemony taste.
Tosta de anchoas
This Roasted garlic bread with anchovies and red peppers is a must-get. A bite down with the huge fresh anchovies on top screams perfect!
Tortilla de patatas
This omelette is a comfort dish! It’s a classic Spanish omelette with caramelised onions and potatoes inside.
Juicy Iberico Pork Ribs
One thing you will not miss on the menu is this delicious Spanish iberico pork ribs. Marinated in Marta’s homemade BBQ sauce, get ready to bite into lip-smacking extra juicy meat!
Fully stacked with giant mussels, prawns and calamari, this is the perfect order if you are looking for a classic Spanish paella.
Jamon ibérico con pan y tomate
Iberian Ham served with bread and tomato, you will want this! The thin Iberian Ham has a unique floral and strong savoury taste that’s perfect to pair with the refreshing tomato and fluffy breads.
Don’t forget to end your meal with desserts at Marta’s Kitchen!
Basque Cheese Cake
Churros with Chocolate
Churros are made fresh and crispy!
Overall, you will love the wide variety of authentic Spanish food and the vibrant flavours you can get at this restaurant.
