Dinner at La Favela is an absolute treat! You might know of La Favela as a party place but if you haven’t tried their dinner menu from 5pm – 11pm you have been missing out. Stepping into the 150k – 200k zone, La Favela is a little pricier than the others above but well worth the experience. Each dish on the menu holds a personalized adaptation unique to La Favela, inspired by the flavours of Mexico and Spain creating tapas, starters and main courses that both blow your mind visually and conceptually. Stand out dishes that we have tried before include the Corn Risotto, Grilled Salmon Fillet with BBQ Jerk and the Chipotle Braised Short Ribs. And make sure you leave room for dessert!
