The best of Spanish food and wine will take to the field at The Reverie Saigon’s Café Cardinal and The Long @ Times Square from September 19 to 22 to celebrate the start of the La Liga football season.

The Spanish football league is home to some of the best players in the world and some of the country’s world-class Michelin-starred chefs will be on hand in Ho Chi Minh City to dazzle with their culinary creations.

At Café Cardinal, Chef Rafael Centeno and his Sous Chefs Ines Abril and Daniel Alonso from the Michelin-starred Maruja Limon Restaurant in Vigo, Spain, will present “Lo Mejor de la Gastronomia Espanola”, with a refined six-course set dinner of authentic Spanish cuisine.

Chef Rafael is a fully self-taught chef, who wandered into the kitchen of his wife’s restaurant one day and ten years later was awarded his city’s only Michelin star. He has also been listed among the 100 best chefs in Spain by Lo Mejor de la Gastronomia, the country’s most prestigious gourmand guide.

Over at The Long @ Times Square, revel in the festive atmosphere at “La Liga Kick Off”. Celebrate the new season with live Flamenco music, a selection of Spanish beer and wine and tapas prepared by two-starred Michelin chef Fran Martinez and tapas masters Ager Uriguen and David Perez.

When he was just 15 years old, Chef Fran left home to study cooking at the Santa Coloma de Gramenet in Barcelona, and now his Maralba restaurant is recognized as one of the best in Spain.

Each night The Long @ Times Square will feature a selection of eight to ten tapas, each created to represent a La Liga team and its city’s culinary style. For example, Barcelona will be represented by a Spanish beef stew with wild mushrooms, while Real Madrid will be embodied by Spanish pork cured with violet aubergine sauce.

“Spain has for many years been one of the great culinary innovators, so we are very excited for our guests to experience the best the country has to offer, in what will be a tremendously exciting and enjoyable event,” said Mr. James Young, Vice President Resources Planning and Development at the WMC Group, which operates The Reverie Saigon.

As the one and only member property of The Leading Hotels of the World in all of Vietnam, the Reverie Saigon offers an astonishing hotel experience, showcasing extravagant, unapologetically European opulence in a storied Asian setting. The hotel features 286 rooms and suites alongside 89 fully-furnished serviced apartments, all of which are among the largest in the city and feature incomparable views of the winding Saigon River and the city skyline.
