DB：为什么你会想在澳门开一家西班牙餐厅？Why did you want to open a Spanish restaurant in Macau?
我当时同我好朋友兼厨师 Costa 谈论澳门的饮食文化时构思出来的想法。我们发现澳门没有正宗的西班牙餐厅，所以希望在澳门打造一个独一无二的饮食理念并坚持採用西班牙最传统及特色的材料和味道。
A number of reasons: my great friend and partner chef Hector Costa are Catalan/Spanish, there were not authentic Spanish restaurants in Macau and we thought to create a new Gastro tapas concept like no other in the region reflection our love and passion. The authentic cuisines and flavors can be replicated in other Asian capital cities by our talented team.
DB：巴塞罗纳是西班牙的一座著名城市，当初你为餐厅起这个名字时，有什么特别的含义吗？Barcelona is the name of a city in Spain, does it mean anything other than that to you?
Bar Celona tapas不单止是一间酒吧餐厅，而是一个以热诚传达西班牙饮食文化的聚会地点。
Yes. It’s a Bar; It’s a Restaurant; It’s a piece of Spanish heritage. It’s Art, It’s love and passion to celebrate friendship and good times. It’s BAR.CELONA TAPAS.
DB：澳门美食可谓包罗万象，顾客的选择亦是数不胜数。你是如何吸引顾客到你的餐厅用餐？Macau offers a great culinary diversity. How do you attract customers to come to your restaurant?
By being the best at what we do. By keeping authentic flavors.By giving our guests a unique experience by loving what we do. And most importantly by being true to our hearts and childhood memories.
DB：说出三个你餐厅最受欢迎的美食。Name the most 3 popular dishes at your restaurant.
It’s one of the rear restaurants that you can have 10 dishes and have a WOW for each one. But if I was to mentioned three I say, Paella or lobster rice, red Spanish Prawns with Garlic and home made croquettes with Iberico pork.
DB：若想成为一个好的西班牙厨师，需要具备什么品质？What qualities do you think should a chef have in order to make good Spanish food?
Patience, Passion, Love, hunger for learning, respect and integrity for regional Spanish cuisines, knowledge and deep understanding of the product source, regions and authentic traditional flavors. It’s a live journey towards perfection. Remember: fusion =confusion=prostitution.The future of all cuisines is in traditional and authentic flavors with Organic and natural products.
