Ever since its opening, SM Megamall's Fashion Hall boasts a number of restaurants exclusively available in their mall (as of writing). One of them is Boqueria Restaurante Chocolateria. My friend DQ and I found ourselves in Megamall one night and decided to go for someplace new. Spanish has never actually been one of our go-to restaurants, but the Boqueria seemed interesting enough from the outside so we decided to give it a go. Here's what we had:
|Albondigas con Foie Gras (Foie Gras Meatballs)|
Yum! I can really taste the foie gras inside each and every meatball!
|Chicharrones (Crispy pork belly with red wine reduction and white wine vinaigrette)|
We had this sent back the first time around because the skin was not crispy at all. When it came back, it was crrruuuunchyyy to the nth level!
|Lengua Estofada (Slow cooked ox tongue in special sauce)|
Meh. Didn't do anything for me.
|Callos (Ox tripe with Spanish chorizo, garbanzos and bell peppers)|
A little bit on the salty side. Had better ones in other Spanish restaurants.
|Churros with Milk Chocolate|
Now this, was good. It sent me back to my childhood Dulcinea days wherein I'd go grab a quick bite with my mom during summer afternoons. Love that the milk chocolate taste was full-on too, no shortcuts here.
All in all, I could say that Boqueria Restaurante Chocolateria is pretty good. We weren't impressed with all the dishes, but there was not one dish that had a failed mark. Well, at least according to my standards. LOL. 3.5 out of 5 stars!
Boqueria Restaurante Chocolateria is at 3/F SM Megamall, Fashion Hall , Julia Vargas Ave., Wack Wack, Mandaluyong
