Calderon Introduces New Dishes

Here's more dishes to add your to your list of favorites from Calderon Cocina Tapas y Bebidas.

After sampling the new dishes, I had to review my list of all-time favorites at Calderon, and add  a few more (for more on Calderon's classic Spanish dishes, and my personal hit list, check out my previous posts here at for their signature must-try dishes, for their wide range of dishes, and for their cool tapas). Here's a sneak peek at the new dishes...

Lengua con Champignon, tender ox-tongue in a rich and creamy sauce with mushrooms. Buttery and creamy, familiar and comforting, a real classic. Resisting the urge to order some garlic rice, Calderon's new dish pairs well with a few glasses of Calderon's Sangria Rojo.

Chuleton, prime grade Wagyu ribeye, perfectly grilled and simply seasoned with a side of roasted peppers on a wooden board. Tender, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth premium beef. With meat this good, you don't need much. Really.

Paella con Setas, Manchego y Trufa Esencia, an all vegetable paella with mushrooms, bold Manchego cheese and rich truffle oil. A refreshing new take on the usual paella, the moist and rich paella packs so much flavor. I never thought I'd enjoy an all vegetable dish, but this one's definitely different.

Medula Osea Asada, roasted bone marrow served with a side of fresh greens and bread. Sprinkle some rock salt and just close your eyes...seriously good. Another round of sangrias? Absolutely.

Dynamitas Fritos, crisp spring rolls with chili peppers and cheese, packed with some real heat. Go for yet another round of Calderon's sangrias.

Pescado en Salsa Verde, delicate pan-seared white fish  with a rich salsa verde, fresh pico de gallo and clams. A light and refreshing meal with subtle yet rich and clean flavors.

Gazpacho de Lichi, a refreshingly rich and creamy blend with cucumber and lychee, topped with shrimps and herbs, a cool starter before any meal at Calderon. Excellent new dishes, all worthy additions to Calderon's menu. Craving to try something new? Head on down to Calderon.

Calderon Cocina Tapas y Bebidas is located at 403 F. Calderon Street, San Juan, Metro Manila or call 238-2264 for inquiries.
