Ever since ArroZeria opened in Century City Mall, we had been wanting to try it. We just never put our desire into action with plenty of choices in Hole-in-the-Wall and having no craving with paella. However, upon the recommendation of our foodie friend and having tasted a delicious Paella from Balay Dako restaurant, we gave it a try at its new location in Bonifacio High Street Central.
Interior & Ambiance
Upon entering the doors, we were welcomed by an interior that is a cross between rustic grungy and industrial for us. The edgy modern decor added stylishness and warmth in the classic space.
The lively atmosphere is great for reuniting and/or hanging out with friends at nighttime. We saw a lot of group of friends during our visit.
Most of the servings were good for groups. And since it was just the two of us dining, we only got to try one dish. We decided to go for one of ArroZerria’s three specials, the MELOSO, PhP 790 (or 15.91 USD). Its texture was similar to risotto, but it was really saucy. Loaded with marinated pork, porcini mushrooms, red bell peppers, carrots, and broccolis, each spoonful has a delicious earthy flavor.
We had difficulty in finishing our order even if we were ravenous. It was because their serving was really generous. Me-An got to take home the leftover and enjoyed eating it after reheating it.
ArroZeria is Reasonable
We can’t comment on the authenticity of their food since we still hadn’t been to Spain yet. However, based on the quality and the serving of what we had tried, we deem ArroZeria BGC as reasonable for groups of people. ArroZeria is also highly recommended for both rice and Paella lovers as they offer a variety of Paella dishes. One also has the choice for the consistency of the paella which can either be al dente and thin, or soft and wet. That alone gives us plenty of reasons to return.
P.S. We’ll update this blog post in the future.
