Update 12/21/2018: As featured in 10 Best New Restaurants in Manila (2019 Homegrown Edition)!
Manila is known to have some of the best Spanish restaurants in Asia. Thanks to the Bistronomia Team, the people behind Las Flores, Rambla, Tomatito and now BCN by Rambla.
BCN is a continuation of the Rambla story—the latter is like the restaurant you would go to in Las Ramblas in Barcelona, the former would be the restaurant you’ll find in El Born or Gracias where the locals would hang out for drinks with friends and family.
BCN reminds us of Estimar in El Born with its emphasis on grilling and seafood, but at the same time of La Pepitas in Gracias with its fun tapas. A bit hidden, it is just the type of Spanish restaurant for foodies looking for better Catalan-inspired food in Manila.
