Take a step into Perrochiko, the latest Spanish restaurant that recently opened in Manila. Traditional meets contemporary in this interesting new spot in BGC. From croquetas, paellas, to chochinillo, savor the a number of delectable dishes that will surely fill your craving for Spanish cuisine.
The cheeky name was shared by Chef Bernat. He brings up his Spanish childhood when he usually ate during weekends at his grandmother’s home. Children are usually spoiled so much by their “abuelas”, with grandparents finding happiness in feeding kids and watching them enjoying every last bite. Chef Bernat shares that they typically say, “Tienes mas hambre que un perro chiko”, which loosely means eat like you’re hungrier than a small dog.
Perrochiko is not your typical Spanish restaurant; it combines traditional Spanish culture with a touch of Latin tropical vibe. These are evident with the spacious interiors, blending shades of emerald green, red, and mustard in the space. The appeal makes casual dining an easy, experiential, and unique.
The food uses premium ingredients with serving portions that are generous. Food is much better enjoyed when shared and Filipinos love to gather. The croquetas selection is pretty interesting with different flavors to choose from. A must order is the Carrileras al Vino con Foie with tender beef cheeks served with a slice of foie gras. Rice lovers will love the different paellas in the menu! If you simply want a light meal over wine, order the Selection de Charcuteria which comes with different cheeses and jamon. For dessert, the Chocolate Half Sphere Mousse is your best bet.
