Have a ‘Ham-Made’ Spanish Weekend Brunch at The Little Spanish Place
Buenos Días, have a taste of something different at the The Little Spanish Place’s new ‘Ham-Made’ Spanish Weekend Brunch. Filipino Co-Partner Chef Edward Esmero, who has a half Spanish grandmother, believes in cooking from the basics where they try to make everything in-house as much as possible. You can expect good Spanish home style cooking from congenial Chef Edward and his team. Bunch is on weekends from 9:30am to 3pm, booking in advance is recommended.
The stand-out and popular brunch item is the savoury Coca de Cebolla con Pimientos Y Anchoas ($24), traditional Catalan flatbread toast with caramelized onions, roasted peppers, anchovies, and Manchego cheese. You will relish the combination of flavours of this pizza-like dish, from the tangy taste of cherry vignette reduction and red wine grilled tomatoes to the salty anchovies. Another appetizing dish is the Bocadillo de Cerdo Desmenuzado ($16) of Spanish braised pulled pork, sliced tomatoes, and cucumber in toasted baguette. Nice bite size sandwiches served with tasty fries whose flavour comes from being fried in flavoured oil with home-made delish alioli dip. If you must have your eggs, the Torrada de Espárragos ($20) which is like an open-faced sandwich of crunchy rilled asparagus with Jamon topped with two fried farm eggs on toasted country bread. There are also mini beef burgers, Hamburguesas ($18) and Chorizo Y Huevos ($18) of fried fresh Chorizo with two eggs and toasted country bread.
You can also complement your brunch with some tapas like Gambas al Ajillo ($16), traditional house favourite garlic prawns or Albondigas ($12), homemade Beef with Pork Meatballs in Tomato sauce. Fancy a classic, refreshing tomato-based vegetable soup served cold from Southern Spain, Gazpacho ($9). Share a House Paella ($49/small, $88/medium) or a Arroz Negra ($44/small, $78/medium) black ink paella if you’re really hungry.
It may seem unusual to have dessert during brunch but make room for the must-have Tarta de Chocolate ($14). This whooping triple layer chocolate tart of crumbly crust, a truffle-like interior and a shiny glaze make irresistible chocolate heaven served with refreshing homemade leche merengada ice-cream. You can also have the delightful ice-cream of cinnamon and lemon zest ice-cream served with Pedro Ximenez dessert wine for added zest on its own, Leche Merengada con PX ($12). If you have a bigger party, Chef Edward might be able to whip up a dessert platter excellent for sharing.
For your caffeine fix, have the robust Café con Leche Spanish “Latte” ($5). Even if it’s just brunch, you can also opt for the Spanish signature Sangria ($12-13) in Red Wine, White Wine or Cava. There is also Cava Mimosa ($12) that is only available during brunch and a selection of Spanish beers like Estrella Beer ($12).
