Review: Casa Roces (Manila)

For my birthday last month, the #ReigningTatay decided to treat us for dinner at Casa Roces.

It's a beautiful restaurant located inside Malacanan in Manila. 

It's a special night so our Tatay wants to dine somewhere special too.

This restaurant is perfect for me because I grew up with Spanish cuisine, my grandma being half Spanish.

I asked our server for their best-sellers, and my heart flips over when I heard Paella! I was contemplating between Paella Valenciana and Paella Negra. The former being an ultimate favorite, I am really very picky with my Valenciana since my grandma makes the best Valenciana for me. So I opted for Paella Negra. A much safer option.

Paella Negra (685Php)

I usually enjoy Paella Negra specially if there are loads of squids. However, they run out of squids that night according to the server so ours only have shrimps on it. Sad. But it's still very much tasty. I liked it.

I know the photo didn't do it justice but this dish is mouth-wateringly good.
Lengua in Mushroom Sauce (450Php)

I love Lengua. My bestfriend's mum makes the best lengua and that's when I started to love this dish. So when our server recommends this, I know I had to give it a try.

The lengua is good. My daughter loves the mushrooms that comes with it and I love the string beans. However, the homecooked lengua from my bestfriend's are still the way better than this one.

Pork Stew Binagoongan (310Php)

Sorry for the blurry photo but this Binagoongan is really, really good. The pork are crispy and the bagoong is really good. I love this dish so much but it doesn't go well with our Paella. The husband ordered white rice and I ate this dish with our good old white rice.

Salmon with Balsamic Glaze (460Php)

Been craving for salmon that time so when I saw this on the menu, I really made sure to get it. The salmon is fresh and the sauce is really, really good. This is my favorite out of all the dishes that we ordered. Super must try.

Fettuccine with Blue Cheese and Roasted Mushrooms (255Php)

My brother's girlfriend wanted pasta so we got Fettuccine with Blue Cheese and Roasted Mushrooms. I didn't get to try this one but based on how my daughter devoured this dish, I think this is pretty good.

Overall dining experience is superb! The waiters are all nice and very alert. The food was served hot and fresh and all of them tastes really good.
