Picada Tapeo Restaurante, BF Homes

Last Father’s Day, after visiting Daddy in Manila Memorial we decided to try this new restaurant in BF Homes along Aguirre Avenue. The restaurant is near Central, if you’re more familiar with this gimik spot. From the name itself, you would guess it right that they serve Spanish cuisine. We were a group of 5 so we were able to try a few more dishes. Mental note to self: I should always bring my camera, huhu, these were just taken using my phone so the quality is not the best.

Here’s a copy of their full menu; as it says, it’s still their Soft Opening Menu —

The space is not that big and since we didn’t have a reservation on Father’s Day, we decided to have dinner early. And true enough, the space filled up pretty fast. The middle part was reserved by one family so that left just a few other tables. We were supposed to stay in the front part of the restaurant but the seats didn’t have a backrest hehe good thing there’s a little private nook by the bar so that’s where we decided to sit.

After perusing the menu, we were salivating over all the Pintxos (pinchos — small finger foods served at bars & taverns) but we also had to leave room for the appetizers and the main course hehe. They served complimentary bread with pesto.

Croquette — 3 cheeses bechamel, truffle, pimiento aioli (Php 245)

Their Salpicao is sooo gooooddddd!! We each had a piece and decided right then to order another one without finishing the first one yet; it’s that good! The meat was tender and melt-in-your-mouth! The sauce was not too salty and had the right balance of soy sauce and olive oil and all other magic ingredients they put in it. 😛 We definitely mopped up that sauce with the toasted bread.

We were so full after our lovely dinner that we literally didn’t have space for dessert as much as we wanted to try what they had to offer.

I cannot wait to go back and have the Salpicao again! Ang sarap siguro with rice, haha! 🙂
