My love affair with this place started when I saw Carrie Bradshaw talking to Mr. Big regarding his move from New York to Napa Valley. “Well when you’re tired you take a nap-a you don…

KULUNGAN O KANLUNGAN

Sa maraming pakikipag usap … sa pakikisalamuha … madaming maririnig …maraming maiisip … kung ngayon ba darating …muli ka bang tatalon sa iyong kulungan? Ito ay nagsilbing kanlungan ng marami dahil ito ang hinihintay at inaasahan ng iba … sige na lang para matapos ang discurso … naging imperatibo sa marami dahil “naaksidente” na… takot tumanda mag isa at walang mag aalaga … kakalungkot isipin pero ganun talaga … kanlungan nga sa marami … pagkatapos ng saya, problema na kita sa bawa’t linya sa mukha, responsibilidad … may magtatanong pa na bakit dumating ka ng maaga ? Ay … kelan ba ako nahuli? Alam ang ibig sabihin pero huwag na lang muna isipin. Sabi ng marami, problema lang, ang payo ko sa kanya … ituloy na at maikli ang buhay … at muling natuwa dahil nakakita ng kakampi …. di kayang bilhin ng pera ang ligaya lalo na at ito lang ang tunay na magpapasaya sa iyo. Di maiintindihan pero matanda ka na para isipin pa ang sasabihin ng iba. Meron ba talaga o ilusyon lang … di naman mangyayari kung wala kahit papaano, dumadating lang sa takot at natatauhan … nagsasawa lang maghintay o natatakot mamatay … pero sumaya … napakasaya. Madali na lang kumuha ng istorya maaaring di patas sa taong pinagkautangan mo ng matinding halakhak at pagbalik ng paniniwala sa sarili …pero ginawa pa din … sinabi pa din … sa bandang huli nasa kulungan na nga. Di kailan man maintindihan ng taong di nakadanas … pero dapat may reputasyong aalagaan … damdaming ayaw masaktan … gaano na ba katagal ang panahon na nasa puso … wag na magbilang at baka sabihin pang tanga ka. Oo nuknukan … nga yata pero sige na lang at pagbigyan .

CERVESERIA … Buena Comida

Comida, Bebida y Alegria Para Todos! Eat Drink and Be Merry!

Greenbelt 3, Makati City

757-4791 / 0917-894-4325

Old World Spanish Charm
Photo from their File

Cerveseria means – brewery or bar. This is my 2nd attempt to dine in this place and finally – we made it inside.  It is a must to have a reservation … and now I know why.  Kudos to the culinary team of Chef Gilbert Pangilinan! Buena Comida!

The ambiance is old world … hard bound books lined the walls, white chandeliers with candle drips,  hard wood tables ( with a secret compartment below to hold bags , etc. ) and chairs , gauzy curtains, intricately designed walls … leaning towards Hogwarts and gothic.

Sangria

Sangria – wine punch consisting of chopped fruit ( orange & apple ) , sweetener, red wine and brandy.  You may order by the glass or pitcher . But from my point of view? Have a great fiesta – order a pitcher or two!!!

Mojito

Mojito – traditional Cuban highball made of white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint and sparkling water.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc – wine that originated from Bordeaux region of  France. Name was probably derived from the word sauvage ” wild” and blanc “white” from the early origion of the indigenous grape. 

Cerveseria Paella

Cerveseria Paella – Php 750 –  What is Spanish meal without Paella. Many people view this as Spain’s National Dish but Spaniards think this is just a regional Valencian dish. This is white rice, seafoods (crabs “cangrejo” , shrimp, fish ) , veggies (beans) , chicken, meat … and of course, saffron and olive oil. This Cerveseria Paella is very good.  This is served with a mustard on the side.

Bread w/ Olive Oil
File from Web

Bread with olive oil – FREE –  this bread is somewhat sweet and a bit crunchy … and I love this.

Chorizo la Rioja

Chorizo la Rioja – Php 195 –  this tapa is one of the best I have tasted.  This is made from coarsely chopped pork and pork fat, seasoned with smoked paprika and salt. This is salty … in a good way.  This can either be smoked and spicy. Great to go with beer!

Enselada de Queso Pecorino – Php 190 – greens with pecorino cheese, cashew nuts and grapes.

Nachos with Tomato Salsa

Nachos with Tomato Salsa – served in a triangular paper and a tomato dip.

Salpicao

Salpicao – served with Jalapeno pepper .  This is the only dish that I don’t particularly like. 

Boquerones Fritos

Boquerones Fritos – Php 158 – Fried Baby Anchovy with Garlic Aioli and a lemon wedge

Coca de Chorizo

Coca de Chorizo – Php 450 –  crust is akin to pita bread topped with Spanish chorizo, gouda cheese and bell pepper.

Foodie Notes :

When gold bars are in your table –  BUY ONE TAKE ONE on beers.When you use it, it signals you want the “take one” served to you .

Fridays 10pm onwards – 80’s night

Saturdays 10pm onwards – latest beat night

So for a real fiesta … this is one place I’d recommend.

Aside

 Tired of Starbucks? Drop by Unit 1 Mt. Sinai Heights Bldg. 71-B Commonwealth Avenue, East Fairview Park, Quezon City. Il Padrino means The Godfather in Italian.  This is owned by the Pangwis opened in 2009.     Inside the cozy … Continue reading
