When we eat out as a family, the first choice (which gets the most votes) is usually Japanese food. However, Nino and I enjoy sneaking out for date night to some of our favorite Spanish restaurants. The irony in that statement is that after I attended a recent media event at Rambla Salcedo, I learned that so many of our favorite restos are actually all part of the same group that brought Rambla Rockwell, and now Rambla Salcedo and Catering, to the Manila eating scene.
Uri, Dani and Sergi came to Manila quite a few years ago, and one of the first things they realized is that it was difficult for the average person to enjoy a good Spanish wine at a decent price. The culture of enjoying a bottle of wine over Pintxos and Tapas was something new to Filipinos, moreover, being able to find a bottle of wine that was affordable was near impossible.
They had this idea to bring what they know and loved from their Barcelona home, here to Manila so they could show their Latin Love to Pinoys all over the metro. Providing the best of what they remember from back home with the beginnings of Barcino to opening Las Flores, Rambla, Tomatito, La Lola, and 5 other delicious concepts.
I can go on and on about how my sister and I love Las Flores, or about how Nino and I love Barcino, or how my kids HAVE to have La Lola when ever we go to SM Aura. But that’s not the point of this post. For this post event, write up, I want to share what we enjoyed during the launch of Rambla Salcedo, and all the new things you can expect when it comes to asking the boys to cater for your own private events in your home.
But here is the thing, because they have gotten so many requests to offer more than just what we can enjoy when we walk into their Rockwell or now, Salcedo branches, they have decided to accept catering for intimate and larger gatherings.
That means, that we can share the Rambla love with all of our loved ones during the most special celebrations when we entertain in our own homes.
Some of the stations that you can look forward to if you avail of their catering services include:
- Bebidas Stations (Beverage): Gin & Tonic Carts, Sangria Bar, Cocktails, and Wine
- Cold cuts and cheese station
- La Parilla (Grill)
- Paella Station
- Jamon Station
- Postres / Churros Station
- Tapas Bar
But if you would like to put together an extra special feast for your gathering, there is always the option to work with the Executive Head Chef to put together the perfect combination of what you would love to serve your guests.
Personally, I love visiting the Salcedo location because it’s easy to get to and so light and airy with their interiors. There is a nice bar that you can sit out (if you are on a date) and you can enjoy a cocktail too…
Upstairs, you can find a private area that is good for seating an intimate gathering, meeting, or celebration. Rambla lovers may notice a few things that are different with this newest location’s menu. Dani shared that of course they always like to keep their restaurant goers excited to visit the different locations and concepts that they open. While many of the dishes are exactly the same as the original Rockwell establishment, he said we can look for a few items on the menu that won’t be available anywhere else. This in turn will differentiate the two branches from one another, and keep all of us coming back for more.
As if we needed another reason?
