eat Spain up!

About the kitchen

There isn't a Spaniard in the world who does not brag about the country's gastronomy, and of course I'm one of those! For that reason I would like to introduce it to you in the most Spanish way possible: eating tapas and enjoying a glass of wine while we have a good conversation.

We have 3 different menus with several courses, all of them inspired in the delightful traditional Spanish cuisine. I'm sure it will surprise you through color, diversity, and an incredible fusion of different tastes. If you don't find that Spanish dish that you would like to try, I will be happy to adapt our menu to cater to your food craving.
If you have a special celebration, such as birthday, anniversary or farewell, just let me know and we can customize the dessert of our menu for the occasion without any additional cost.
When Homemade Fruity Sangria is included with the menu, it is approx. 2 glasses per person. Feel free to bring your own wine.

Usually our lunch/dinner spans about two hours captivating the senses of our guests who want to remember their last trip to Spain or those who would like to discover the one of the most diverse gastronomy in the world.

All our delicious dishes are cooked with extra virgin olive oil, which is well-known for its health benefits in lowering cholesterol and control insulin levels. In fact, this is the key reason why the Spanish cuisine is healthier than other Western cuisines.
A large majority of the ingredients that we uses in our menu are bought in the fresh market due to we are concerned about the quality and, at the same time, the sustainability of the local businesses.
Contact me if you would like to have only vegetarian dishes in your menu or if somebody has any dietary restricction.

The maximum number of guests is 10 people and I have to pointed out that we really love the big groups. On the other hand, the minimum number of guests is 4 people per event. Less than 4? No worries, just join to any of our events or contact me to coordinate with more people.

As most of the dishes require fresh products and some preparation, please contact us two days in advance (minimum) to arrange the event.

Any other thing? Just press the envelope icon and ask me! :)

  1. Bio

    Although I was born, raised in one small town in the North of Spain called Leon, I’ve been living in HK for two and a half years. I love the outdoors and spend time hanging out with friends, but the hobby that I devote more time is cooking – I exchange recipes with my mum, but also I usually surf on Internet searching innovative recipes with new flavours. Also my husband loves cooking, so frequently we have to toss up to see who is going to cook and who clean the plates  We would love to come and taste our Spanish dishes!

Great dinning experiment with Elena! Thank you so much for your special chocolate surprise! Thank you for giving me a special birthday celebration with my wife.

Juan and Elena were the perfect hosts! They made sure guests were comfortable at their place. I tried the Paella Menu and it was amazing. Key ingredients used (saffron, chorizo, iberico ham, rice, etc.), cooking techniques, and most importantly, taste of all dishes were authentically 100% Spanish. The duo knows their Spanish food very well and can cook it! I'm glad they are here at PlateCulture to share their food.

Chef Elena and her husband are a perfect team. The atmosphere was relaxing and the food delicious. We also brought our 10 year old daughter with us and she thoroughly enjoyed the food, especially the tapas. Definitely would recommend to our friends.

Elena and her husband is a couple who always smiles and brings such a good welcoming feeling! I feel I have been on the gourmet trip to Spain. Starting from all sorts of tapas, cold Spanish soup, indulging into sea food paella and finalizing with Elena's invented dessert. Elena, if you stop cooking Spanish one day, the next best thing will be your desserts. There was a nice silence when everyone dived into their desserts :) And only after first spoons you could hear - "wow, this is amazing".

This was like a dinner with family. We have sat around big table with Elena, her husband and other group of foodies sharing Spanish delicates. Such a great time! Left with full bellies :)

Elena n Juan were awesome hosts. As soon as we entered their home, we felt deeply welcomed n cozy. It was like visiting family. The dinner was truly the most authenic Spanish meal I have ever tried. Every dish had a splash of individuality. Also, our topics were endless. I learned about the Spanish culture n now I am super excited for a Spain trip.

My colleagues and I decided to try something exotic to us: Spanish cuisine. We are deeply impressed by Chef Elena and Juan’s superb hospitality as well as their passion of cooking. Home-made fruity sangria and all the dishes are tasty, Surf'n turf paella particularly! Yummy! :D

Janice C.

I booked this place to celebrate my husband birthday. It was a breeze working with Elena on the menu. We all had a great time at the dinner. The food was fresh and delicious just as we expected. They even open a few bottles of champagne from Spain for the special occasion. Thank you Elena for making that night memorable for us.

Raquel G.

We are Spanish and were looking for a place in Hong Kong to have home cooked foods (aside from our own home) and we found it! Elena and Juan are generous hosts and Elena has kept to her word and kept the dishes authentic - no messing around with old school Spanish cooking. The experience was our first with PlateCulture, we had a nice time. Thank you Elena and Juan!


Elena and Juan are amazing chefs and hosts! From the sangria to the beautiful Valentine's day came, everything was impeccable and delicious! I definitely felt I ate Spain up!
