I felt like a kid in a candy store at Spiral. I didn’t know where to start from the 21 dining ateliers because the food offerings were so overwhelming. There were stations such as the boulangerie, salad and appetizer, rotisserie, churrasco, French, Indian, Asian… so whatever you’re craving, it would most likely be there.

Since I’m not flying there any time soon, I would settle for sampling curated dishes at one of the city’s grandest hotel buffets.
For this third installation of the culinary series, Spiral highlights the specialty dishes of guest chef, Executive Corporate Chef Nicolas Diaz from Barcino Wine Resto Bar.
