Barcino at Rockwell ♥


barcino rockwell


It is Sunday again and Mamou Too is full. Again.

So we pick a random restaurant in the mall and this time it’s Barcino.


Paperless menu!!! Yay! Manila is finally catching up with the times.
While Celadon uses iPad, and Upper House uses iPod, Barcino uses Samsung Galaxy
and Galaxy Tab. Woot!


Complimentary bread and very watery tomato stuff


Gambas al Ajillo – the shrimps are cooked perfectly, succulent and juicy.
Love the crispy garlic bits.


Empanada Vegetal – stuffed with spinach, feta cheese,
caramelized onions and red bell peppers. Nothing fantastic.


Croquetas Pollo y Jamon – skin is thick, potato is heavy,
and I don’t taste no chicken or Jamon Serrano.


Sobrassada de Mallorca – Spanish sausage with Manchego cheese on toast. Yum.


Shitake con Jamon – grilled shitake mushrooms and Jamon Serrano.
Tasty stuff.


Wanting to get a paella but cannot decide which kind, I ask our waitress if the Negra is any good.

Waitress: Yes, Ma’am, masarap po. Pero mangingitim ang ipin at bibig nyo. (Yes, Ma’am, it’s delicious. But your teeth and lips will turn black)

Toink. Confused smile


Paella Negra – TOO MUCH MAYO!!!


And indeed she is right.

I call a server to our table and point to my now black teeth and lips.

Jin: Naku, pano na, matatanggal ba to?


Errr… Err…
Love the server’s uniform! Rolling on the floor laughing


Dad, Mom, Me, Jamie and Benjie
