Listen to this week’s mouth-watering episode here!
This week, our new Makan Kaki Chef Seita Nakahara of Terra Tokyo-Italian shares with us where he goes for outstanding Spanish food. Chef Seita’s food philosophy is to keep things very simple so that the natural flavours of the fresh produce always shine. It’s all about respecting the ingredients and not overshadowing them with heavy seasoning, spices or herbs. It’s about subtly enhancing the flavours and fragrance of the food. That’s why he enjoys OLA Cocina Del Mar – he believes its Peruvian chef, Daniel Chavez shares the same approach to food.
Ola’s Chef Chavez is no stranger to Singapore, having worked at Les Amis under the direction of Gunther Hubrechsen and later as the executive chef of the late Michelin-starred chef Santi Santamaria’s “Santi” at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Since 2012 THOUGH, Chef Chavez has moved away from the fine dining scene with a more relaxed approach at his personal project, OLA Cocina del Mar in Marina Bay Financial Centre.
With OLA restaurant and bar, you can expect contemporary Spanish cuisine with an open kitchen concept, serving only the freshest and most seasonal produce, with a focus on seafood from around the world.
