On most days, I take a bicycle ride to burn some calories and clear the cobwebs from my mind. As soon as I leave the village gate, the city assaults me with its storm and stress: a seemingly chaotic swirl of noise, traffic, crowds and diesel exhaust.

Bucking the odds and in front of a frenzied home crowd, Gilas did just that, winning 86-79, ensuring the team of at least a second place finish and one of three slots to the basketball World Cup in Spain in 2014.

Unlike other Southeast Asian countries that have distinctly light-textured yet very spicy recipes, we have heavier meals that veer towards the salty; saucy and sweet. This is in large part due to over 300 years of Spanish colonial rule and the osmosis of Spanish flavors into our own culinary lives. Hence, our love for flavors based on chili peppers, tomato sauce, garlic and onions.

Led by chef Myrna Segismundo, chefs Robbie Goco, Manny Torrejon and Penk Ching went on a food tour of Spain last year to learn the flavors and cooking techniques involved in Spanish cuisine. They all came home with a piece of Spain in their hearts, and the love shows when they cook.
