Mesón Las Tapas

27 Nov

I had the opportunity to go to Santiago de los Caballeros (about 2 hrs away from Santo Domingo) a few days ago, as you might have seen on my Instagram account I uploaded some pictures from the Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel. It´s well known in the area and has been around for years; owned by a small local hotel chain.

The service was definitely five stars as well as their meals. Breakfast is buffet but had great variety at and the Omelette was custom-made by the chef live! 🙂

For lunch we went to Mesón Las Tapas, on the first floor. The menu has variety so there is something for everyone in there. I started off with a Cesar salad, just to get my stomach ready. The serving size was perfect with a generous amount of chicken. The dressing was pretty good, It´s a great option for those trying to eat healthier.

lots of flavor on that chicken!

 

For the main course I went for the fettuccine Gorgonzola with Portobello Mushroom, I loved it! The sauce was creamy and pasta was cooked perfectly. I only wished there was a little more mushrooms, but still delicious. The serving was very generous; I had to share to be able to finish it.

The Salmon was the second main dish and it was not only beautifully presented but all the flavors played well. I know pesto y an acquired taste, but I hope you give it a chance if you stop by. The salmon was very juicy and soft, you could appreciate the salmon when combined with the pasta. The serving was noble.

everything played well together

The meal price was just under RD$900 (tax included) which is around US$20.00, not bad for a 5 star hotel. The hotel and the room is beautiful, you can take a look at it here.
