Vask, Revisited ♥ ♥


Auntie Babie loves Spanish food, so for her birthday we thought we'd do her favorite cuisine, but different from what them oldies are used to.



Darth Vader here creeped the lolas out a little. Lol! :P




Because it was a Monday and there was no degustation, Vask let us use The Gallery




Matsu wines to complement our dinner



We all had the 6-course tasting menu which included the following dishes:



Foie Gras on Mango Toast - my favorite at Vask!




Sous Vide Tuna Pintxo - garlic chili oil, caramelized onions, piquillo pepper




Mejillones Tigre - bechamel, bell pepper, mussels
Its creaminess and spiciness got my appetite up and running. 




Huevos Hongos y Cebolla - 62 degree sous vide egg, porcini mushrooms, breadcrumbs,
port wine sauce, onion foam




Pulpo ala Gallega - octopus in olive oil, whipped potato, crispy paprika




Tuna in Dashi Kombu - calamansi infused tuna, quinoa risotto, algae




Corte Iberico, Manzana y Mostaza - 62 degree Iberian pork, apple mash, mustard sauce,
white wine, apple confit. The meat was tender and very flavorful. My only complaint:
Three pieces was not enough! 




Pistachio Cappuccino - coffee crumbs, pistachio cream, coffee foam, milk ice cream,
Nespresso capriccio, frangelico. I quite enjoyed the flavors and textures of this dessert.




Chocolate Truffles - no explanation needed




Of course we came with our battalion of cakes. Clockwise from top left:
Costa Brava Caramel Cake, Happy Cream Puff Croquembouche, Hizon's Mocha Cake,
my cousin Nikko's Homemade Lemon Cheesecake, Sinfully's Chocolate Coconut Cake,
Grace Park's Quatro Leches (see how I dressed it up here), and Hizon's Mocha Cake



 My favorite part of dinner: attacking the birthday cake buffet!



The ladies were asked to come in florals.

I loved how my dress matched the cream puff tower :)




And Achi Donna asked her, "Auntie Nats, galing ka ba sa hospital duty?"
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! I DIE!!!!!!!!! 
After this photo, Auntie Natalie changed into another outfit.




These power banks are the perfect birthday giveaways because I am always, always out of batt.
