Quick Eats: Barcino, Alabang Town Center

It’s mom’s birthday last October 6 and after celebrating with family on the 5th (Sunday), we decided to take advantage of the holiday to eat out and celebrate again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Barcino is quite new in the south. And though we frequent this place in Rockwell, Fort and Greenbelt, it is mostly for wine, more than anything else. But this was lunch with the family and I would know that I would get to try new dishes here ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tapas

The place is surprisingly small, considering that this is a well established place outside of the south. Maybe they feel that the market here is smaller? The area would have sate maybe 30 people including the outside seating. Or maybe they thought that people won’t come in droves? The place never filled up during the lunch, and it was a holiday. Maybe they have a better estimate of the market ๐Ÿ™‚

We ordered a lot, though the names of the dishes don’t stick. We had the tapas plate, cocido, chicken paella, potato with chorizo, chicken of some sort, chorizo burger, and churros. It was a lot of food. The paella maybe served to 2 to 3, the tapas about 4 people, cocido and everything else was for 2 as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ And we were just 4 people ๐Ÿ™‚ It was a major birthday celebration after all ๐Ÿ™‚

I really, really love the deli items, along with the multitude of chorizos sprinkled in the dishes. But the thing is, I can easily make all of the dishes I had there at home. And take note, I can make them easily. It is a nice way to discover dishes to try at home though, if that’s one thing. I still have dishes I want to make from our recent trip, and I think I’ll be following it up with cocido, the chicken and potato dish and churros too. ๐Ÿ™‚ย So ย now on my list, I have cannoli, stewed pork in yam and sweet potatoes, cocido, chicken and potato dish, churros, a homemade version of the ย Chinese spiced pork that comes canned ๐Ÿ™‚

But going back, I was a satisfied little (piggie) foodie with all the food. I was full, happy with what I ate, but maybe go cheaper on the next few orders and skip the tapas altogether ๐Ÿ˜›
