Spanish National Juan Ramon Sobero Llaca has garnered over 8 years-experience working as a Chef de Cuisine in a number of renowned restaurants across three different continents. A dedicated professional passionate about creating traditional Spanish dishes with an innovative and unique twist, LLaca is now at the helm of Casa De Tapas – one of Dubai’s longest standing Spanish venues. Llaca’s approach to leading his culinary team aligns with the laid back, ‘Mi casa es su casa’ vibe that Casa De Tapas is famous for! Exciting and flavorsome creations that continue to pay homage to Spanish traditions are on the menu under the direction of this chef.
Llaca became Chef de Cuisine at Vegamar Bodegas before moving across the globe to take charge of The Tapas Bar at J by Jose Andres in Mexico. The Chef de Cuisine returned to Europe where he took the culinary reigns at Quisitapas, Westin Excelsior in Florence. In 2017 he set his sights on the Middle East where he took command as Chef de Cuisine in both La Liga Lounge in Doha and Mercado Andaluz, St Regis in Amman, Jordan.
Expect great things from this talented cuisto in his new role as Chef de Cuisine at Casa De Tapas, Dubai Creek Yacht Club. He is busy creating a new menu that will be launched after Ramadan with new dishes including huevos rotos con jamón Iberico (eggs served Spanish-style with 36-month aged Iberican ham), pulpo a la gallega (Galican-style octopus with confit potatoes and smoked paprika), or arroz de Senyoret (Spanish rice with prawns, cuttlefish, seabass and saffron). Buen provecho!
