New Dishes at Tapenade, Discovery Primea

New dishes from Chef Luis Chikiamco at Tapenade, Discovery Primea!

Last month, I visited Discovery Primea with my KTG fam to try out the new menu at their all-day dining outlet Restaurant Tapenade. It marks my second visit to the hotel, the first of which was when they invited me to check out the lunch specials at their Modern European restaurant Flame.

Showcasing bold and summery flavors, the restaurant named after the traditional Provencal condiment of puréed olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil, embodies the rich flavors of the Mediterranean region. The new menu takes inspiration from the seaside fishing villages of the French coast, the terroir of the Italian countryside, the sunny isles of Greece, and the exotic landscapes of Turkey and Morocco.

But before getting into the new menu, we first hit the Tapenade Signature Salad Room which you can have access to for Php 780. Visit them on (#Throwback)Thursdays to avail the premium spread at its original price of Php 620!
