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 – 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 – traditional Cuban highball made of white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint and sparkling water.
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 – 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 with olive oil – FREE – this bread is somewhat sweet and a bit crunchy … and I love this.
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 – served in a triangular paper and a tomato dip.
Salpicao – served with Jalapeno pepper . This is the only dish that I don’t particularly like.
Boquerones Fritos – Php 158 – Fried Baby Anchovy with Garlic Aioli and a lemon wedge
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.
