It’s not often you have an 11-course dinner. Last Sunday (09/06/20) in La Plage, I was invited to a private dinner as they introduce their menu carefully curated by Chef Jaime Ramos from Spain.
Among the 11 courses were gazpacho, crab bruschetta, croquette, seafood paella and Belgian liquor truffles. Hands down, Chef Jaime! The food were all AMAZING!
Champagne and cocktails were pouring non-stop before and during dinner. Their amaretto sour is now one of my few favorites in Cebu.
