Expect nothing less than the surreal and otherworldly from the city that lets you dream with eyes wide open.
The Tasting Room at the City of Dreams becomes a dream world of tastes on May 20 to 21 in its â€œFour Hands Dinner,â€ a collaboration between two-Michelin starred chef William Mahi and guest chef Daniel Negreira.

French and Spanish influenced dishes from the Basque country are prepared with Asian ingredients and techniques for a truly different take on Spanish cuisine, a cuisine Filipinos are inherently familiar with. Come with a fresh palate and a readiness to experience culinary creations that appear to be more art than feast.
â€œThere are no limits in creating, no limits, for the endless quest for perfection, no limits in our obsession for details, no limits for oneÂ´s dreams, because, once you set a limit upon your dreams, you will stop living those dreams, â€œ Negreira stated on his philosophy in the kitchen.
