What better way to welcome the weekend than with a rewarding dinner to cap off the long work week. If you’re a seafood lover, even better because we’ve got just what you’re looking for. The Spanish Seafood Night at Olive Oil, City Centre Rotana will surely have you in food heaven by the end of the night. Buen provecho!

Taste of Spanish cuisine

Spanish Seafood Night on Thursday nights is back! The newly appointed Executive Chef Salvatore Silvestrino has also revamped the menu, making sure that diners will be able to taste the flavors that Spanish cuisine is known for.

You’ll start off the night with iconic tapas but make sure to pace yourself because more food is coming. The Signature Olive Oil Bread has a nice thin crisp crust with a fluffy interior. It’s even more perfect when paired with marinated green olives, grated tomato with garlic aioli and olive oil.

There are two cold salads - one is the Esgarraet, a typical Valencian dish while the other is a Spanish take on the Russian Salad. Next up are Oysters on crushed ice which will be a delight for oyster lovers.

Of course, what’s tapas without cheese? The sweetness of the honey is a good combination with the Manchego cheese. You’ll also be able to nibble on olives wrapped in anchovies, pincho de tortilla (mini tortilla), and artichoke with pine nuts.

Not to be missed are hot tapas - Albondigas (Spanish meatballs with grilled bread), Patatas Bravas, Gambas Al Ajjillo (Garlic Prawns), and traditional Croquettes. You can never go wrong with the Albondigas and for sure you’ll be soaking up the bread in its tomato-based sauce.

Spanish staples

The star of the night is, of course, the Seafood Paella with burnt lemons and fresh parsley. While seafood is the highlight of the night, there’s also something for meat lovers - Alicante style Whole Roast Chicken and Spanish Style Lamb Stew with White Beans.

The Paella de Mariscos is for sure the most popular Spanish dish in the world and you won’t be disappointed with Olive Oil’s take on it. Having been marinated in grape juice, the roast chicken came out flavorful, especially the skin, while the lamb stew’s hearty and comforting. In addition, there’s a traditional vegetable dish from La Mancha.

You’ll also have a plateful of Grilled Marinated Seafood (lobster, shrimps, calamari, and mussels) which will for sure fill you up even more!

Grand finale

We sure hope you saved space for dessert because you wouldn't want to miss these sweet endings. If you love Crème Brulee then you’ll also love the Spanish version - Crème Catalan. Crack the caramelized sugar crust to your heart’s content.

The Blood Orange Chocolate Tart is a truly interesting combination. You’ll either hate it or love it and we sure do hope it’s the latter. There’s also a heaping plate of sliced fresh fruits with berry sorbet and of course, who couldn't resist Churros! Paired with three sauces - chocolate, caramel, and strawberry - the sugary goodness is both crispy and fluffy.
How’s the value for money you ask? With the quantity of delicious food that the Spanish Seafood Night brings, you’ll definitely get more than your money’s worth. The service is top-notch too and the ambiance is just the right atmosphere to relax and unwind.

Here’s our last piece of advice: Come in with an empty stomach and a hearty appetite!
