From the land, Caspar’s bestseller Pollo Mantequilla got some comfort food companions, Pechuga 3 Pimientas—grilled breast chicken with 3 pepper sauces and Flamenquin Cordobes, Spanish chicken cordon-bleu.
During our recent dinner there to experience the new dishes, we were very impressed by the new touches that che Rafa and his team had found adding flavours and textures to old favorites.

These three dishes have different cooking method and sophisticated techniques involving some Latin cuisine influences.

The beverage team with Imam Azzai at the helm has also done some extensive R&D and created six creative caffeinated beverages. The classic Café Bombon is making an appearance to the menu, the milky, frothy, and sweet Valencian coffee is a perfect option to jump start the day.
