Dining on Your Doorstep: Pintxos + Paella at Avecita

Flavour. Variety. Community. These are the three words that best encapsulate the new Spanish dining experience in Avecita restaurant at Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa.

When you live at The Residences at Seafire, you have world-class dining options steps from your home offering unique experiences such as the recently launched Pintxos + Paella in Avecita, which takes place every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. Pintxos + Paella is a Spanish-inspired social dining event where guests can mix and indulge in various small Spanish plates of food commonly known as ‘tapas’. The Spanish word tapas means “small snack” or “appetiser” and in the Basque Country of northern Spain, tapas are known as “pintxos”, which is pronounced “pin-chos”.

At one station in Avecita, you will find an assortment of pintxos, from charcuterie and Spanish cheese to marinated octopus. At another station, the popular Spanish dish paella is continually served to guests, and if you have a sweet tooth, “Tarta de Santiago”, a famous Spanish almond cake dessert is sure to make your mouth water.

A special cocktail was also concocted specifically for the event, called “The Regalo del Huerto”, which translates to Gift of the Orchard. This cocktail is served in a traditional Spanish pitcher and includes a blend of herbs, citrus and sweet apple that pairs well with the variety of different foods offered.

Over 50 per cent of the chefs at Avecita are from Spain, which ensures that this Basque Country pintxos experience in the Cayman Islands is authentic. From the ingredients down to the techniques used in preparation, the chefs are fully seasoned – pun intended.

The goal of the evening is to not only indulge in gourmet pintxos made by brilliant Spanish chefs, but also to indulge in the company of your friends, family and neighbours. The energetic atmosphere has made the event more popular than expected, and as a result, Pintxos + Paella may be extended throughout the summer months.
