While I was in SM Mega Fashion Hall a week ago, I spotted Boqueria Restaurante Chocolateria. A SOFT OPENING sign on the door didn't stop me from giving this new restaurant a try. The words "The Best Hot Chocolate from Madrid is now in Manila" caught my attention instead. I had to try it and it was love at first sip...

|Boqueria's Signature Hot Chocolate PhP 98|
Now that I have experience Boqueria's Signature Hot Chocolate, I can say that I found the ONE! It is handcrafted with exceptional quality and taste of Valor Chocolates from Madrid, Spain. A tiny cup is worth every peso, even my little princess loved it.
|Pato y Pollo con Adobo PhP 208|
These shredded duck meat and chicken were fried to a crisp with lots and lots of garlic on top. I liked it but there are other appetizers that I would love to try on my next visit like Gambas a la Ajillo and Salpicao.
|Sopa de Mariscos PhP 168|
I ordered a seafood soup (mussels, clams and shrimp) so that #babyMartinez will have something to eat. Sopa de Mariscos isrich and very flavorful. It has a lot of seafood ingredient hidden in this tiny casserole.
|look at dad catching some seafood ; p|
|Pescado en Salsa Verde PhP 308|
I thought that I was just ordering a fish. I didn't know that there will be a lot more than just fish in Pescado en Salsa Verde as you can see in this photo. Suffice to say, we had seafood overload that day.
|Paella Queso Manchego PhP 398|
I am saving the best for last... Paella Queso Manchego. It is paella with Spanish chorizo and Manchego cheese. It's so yummy, I can't get enough of it!
Little did I know that this restaurant is the newest baby of Marvin Agustin, an actor-turned-restaurateur. You know how I feel about all his Japanese restaurants. If I had known in the beginning that THIS is one of his restaurant, I would not dare step in and try. Good thing, I didn't or I would have missed a savoury Spanish restaurant like Boqueria. I think Marvin has finally found his niche in the food business.
