Afternoon Tapas at Casa Marcos

Any other ordinary afternoon is, well, just an ordinary afternoon. But you can change all that with some tapas and a cold beer. Then the remainder of the day opens up with so many possibilities... 

And you can do just that at the newest branch of Casa Marcos at Il Terrazo. Classic tapas, prepared Casa Marcos style, and an ordinary afternoon just got a whole lot better.

Not exactly tapas, but it's always a good idea to start with the refreshing flavors of the signature Caesar Salad (P 190) at Casa Marcos, the classic salad with bacon, cheese, and rich caesar dressing given the Casa Marcos touch with pugon-baked croutons. 

After the salad, your ready for some signature tapas from Casa Marcos, like the best-selling Gambas (P 320), an all-time favorite, with Spanish garlic shrimps prepared Casa Marcos style. Fresh, plump shrimps with a subtle briny sweetness draped in a rich garlic olive oil, just can't get better than that. A glass of wine, a cold beer, a refreshing cocktail, a glass of premium Scotch taken neat, or maybe some garlic fried rice, whatever you choose, it just works with the Gambas at Casa Marcos.    

The Chorizo Combo (P 295), with Chorizo Bilbao and Chistorra pan-fried in its own oil to bring out its natural  flavors, is another classic tapas dish at Casa Marcos. Each bite releases a burst of flavor in your mouth. The bold and robust flavors of the chorizo and chistorra are perfectly tempered by the Casa Marcos sauce, a sharp vinegar dip with garlic. 

The inventive Spanish Sisig (P 245), the classic sisig with that distinct Casa Marcos spin, with chopped pork liempo, chorizo, and pork ears fried in olive oil and garlic topped with onions, red peppers, and crunchy garlic bits, transforms a familiar dish into something new and refreshingly different. The richness of the liempo is balanced by the sharpness of the chorizo for balanced flavors. The soft and tender pork is punctuated by the chewy and firm slices of chorizo for contrasting textures and flavors, and the red peppers and onions complete the flavors.

Turn your ordinary afternoon into something special, with classic tapas from Casa Marcos. Now open at Il Terrazo...(for more on the newest branch of Casa Marcos and their signature heritage dishes, check out my previous post here at
