“Modern tapas” is the term that Australian-trained Chef Benjo Tuason uses to describe Relik’s signature dishes. “We’re not strictly Spanish cuisine. It’s really honest and good food, cooked with a lot of love,” he says. “I believe that the produce should speak for itself. I like simple, clean flavors cooked with passion. It’s very important to respect the products you use and to cook with a lot of care because it will reflect on the dish.” Among those he recommends trying would be the Baked Brie with Honey Glazed Jamon Serrano and Tomato Salsa, the Chorizo and Fries (thick potato wedges mixed with Spanish chorizos and topped off with a fried egg), the Potato Bomba (ham and cheese croquettes with aioli), the Davao Blue Cheese with Spicy Paprika Sausage Tortilla and of course, their signature tapas that include the Spicy Gambas, Beef Salpicao and Lamb Meatballs. Apart from the tapas, he also suggests trying the main dishes. Two of those that should not be missed would be the 350 gram USDA Certified Angus Beef steak and the Relik Paella, which needs to be ordered a day in advance.
Relik is also the perfect place to have lunch. Hearty lunch sets that are easy on the pocket are available. Each set includes soup, salad and one main course. A typical lunch set would consist of Roasted Pumpkin soup with Crème Fraiche, Caesar Salad and Lengua. Other days, one can expect some French Onion Soup with Manchego Crouton, a Garden Salad and for the main course, Chicken Parmigiana with Sweet Potato Fries. The set lunches vary regularly so there’s always something new and exciting to try out during the week. Various desserts like the Vanilla and Amaretto Panacotta with berry compote or homemade cakes are also available for the sweet-toothed.
Relik’s homey ambience and cozy interiors have made it a favorite hangout for those who have visited the place at least once.
