VASK MANILA‘s San Sebastian Weekend Brunch features eat-all-you-can Spanish Tapas with Cochinillo and Paella, and drink-all-you-can Kalimotxo. It’s like the best of San Sebastian Cuisine every weekend lunch.
The food is cooked and served in small batches, unlike a typical buffet where everything is cooked in advance and displayed the entire time. The Spanish food selection is well-curated and the kitchen ensures that foodies will rave about each item.
Here’s a photo essay of our yummy San Sebastian Weekend Brunch experience at Vask…
This is one of our favorites, with a very milky and soft inside. Yes, you can eat all you want. 🙂
We love the tuna cheeks! The kitchen surprises you with different flavors every time.
My 3-year old son, Raphael loved every little bit of these fresh anchovies in olive oil…
This meat in Phyllo triangles was just OK.
Their empanada dough needs improvement.
Nothing beats eat-all-you-can octopus cooked just right and seasoned lightly. It’s no surprise this station gets quickly wiped out.
It’s like calamari popcorn–crunchy but also with the right chewiness. Very addicting.
We stayed away from the potatoes so that we won’t feel full easily.
Egg omelette with potatoes cut pizza-style. We avoided this because it also has potato.
Make sure to get these vegetables instead of the potatoes.
We were served chickpea soup. It was OK, but there could have been better soup options.
Thick and flavorful–one of the best callos we’ve had. Make sure to get from the fresh, hot batch.
This is an acquired taste. I still can’t appreciate the chunks of fat in the terrine.
Fruity and refreshing, perfect for stimulating your appetite.
COCHINILO & PAELLA
I love the seafood paella, with chunks of tuna cheeks that taste like steak. The flavor of the paella varies per brunch, so make sure to call ahead if you want to find out what the paella flavor for the day is.
The cochinillo is sous-vided into really soft, flavorful meat.
Get the red for the main course, which is much stronger and a better match for the meat.
The desserts were awesome! You can choose 2 from the VASK Desserts Menu for your group.
Not your usual chocolate lava. Enjoy a generous serving of caramel that combines well with the chocolate and the coconut ice cream. The pine nuts and mint were a good addition to remove the suya factor.
Order this if you like a more tangy finish and mini macarons.
Equally good with a soft, cheesy center and cheese chunks, paired with creamy cheese ice cream.
The best among the rest! Buttery-soft brioche served pudding-style, with milk and anise ice cream.
Indeed, the Best San Sebastian Weekend Brunch in Manila!
For tapas, we recommend the Pintxos, Croquetas, Rabas, Pulpo, and Callos, then go for the Cochinillo and Seafood Paella for your mains. Pair the food with their Kalimotxo. Finally, end with the awesome signature desserts of Vask.
Remember, you can eat as many as you want! This is best enjoyed with family and friends who love to eat, too. 🙂
Budget about P1,500/head, or P1,800 with drinks.
Make sure to reserve beforehand because the place can only accommodate a few groups.
