I had the chance to check out two new eating places that not too long ago opened in the “Scouts” region of Quezon City: Deo Gracias and Tiong Bahru.

A pair of months in the past, my son Paolo raved about Deo Gracias immediately after he dined there with his dad, Mike Planas. Paolo claimed that the Spanish foodstuff they served was delicious and he preferred me to check out it. When some pals decided to get together for an early Xmas lunch, I recommended we go there considering the fact that it is close to my business office.

Co-owned by Heny Sison and Rep. DV Savellano, Deo Gracias is found at No. 12 11th Jamboree St. in what used to be a household. The home was transformed into an indoor restaurant with cozy, clean and homey interiors, not to point out an al fresco dining space, a bar, and a deli store, crammed with Spanish goodies. On the next floor are personal rooms.

Rooster is roasted to perfection.

Paolo was right… Deo Gracias’ delicacies did not disappoint. And how could it, with Heny Sison at the helm? The foodstuff was so great, I forgot to just take photographs. My mates and I started with the tender and flavorful Pulpo a la Gallega, which is steamed octopus with paprika as the base. We also had the gambas, which was served with gulas or little one eel. I couldn’t resist dipping my toasty bread in this dish, which is cooked with a lot of olive oil and garlic. We also had common Croquetas and Callos.

And though I was previously having total by sampling all these, I built positive to go away home for our principal training course, which consisted of two types of paella: Arroz Senyoret (a.k.a. Seafood Paella) and Arroz Negro with squid ink and aioli sauce. The waiter also recommended the Sekreto Iberico (a grilled pork dish that employs the meat below the shoulder) and the rib eye steak entrecote, which my friends and I savored.

For dessert, we requested the churros, which are a mix of chilly chocolate churros and plain churros served with chocolate sauce. Following our food, it was time for a siesta to cap a excellent meal.

Churros are being served two means, dipped in chocolate and basic with two sauces as effectively.

A few days soon after, my buddies and I went to Tiong Bahru, which I arrived to know about from my cousin Sandy Daza. Situated at No. 47 Sct. Torillo St. cor. Timog Ave., it is a franchise of the Tiong Bahru in Singapore, which is a Michelin Bib Gourmand awardee.

The restaurant is modest, and the menu is really confined, but all the things on it is mouth watering. The Fried Tofu and Quekiam produced for superior appetizers though we waited for our most important programs, Hainanese Hen and Roast Hen. However my favourite Hainanese Chicken is from Chatterbox at the Mandarin Hotel in Singapore, this a person arrives pretty close at a portion of the selling price. The rooster broth soup was so flavorful that I requested for an additional serving. The fish curry head was also a handle, tender and not way too spicy. With all these delectable servings, I even completed my bowl of Hainan rice regardless of a assure to slash down on carbs.

The up coming time you are in the Scout location and are in the temper for Spanish or Singaporean delicacies, think about eating at Deo Gracias or Tiong Bahru for a unforgettable, richly fulfilling gastronomic practical experience.

Specialty of the home is Hainanese Hen.

Fish head curry is the two flavorful and savory.
