El Corazon

I was fortunate to have  been  invited  a few weeks back to a lunch foodie meet up at 2 of Florabel Group's restaurants , thanks to @seemslegeat and @eatsearliiibirdmnl. Along with 10 other foodies, we enjoyed the following dishes with fascinating names.:

Gaudi whole ( P1600 )Quarter (P450) -- chicken galantina with gravy. It reminded me of my late mother-in-law's delicious galantina which she usually makes during noche buena. The chicken was moist. The filling was rich and delicious. I would make this into a sandwich and can eat this everyday

Pradilla P695 Beef Pochero with ensaladang talong. It looked like ossobuco and bulalo combined with red sauce. Unfortunately, we were not able to taste this.

Pomelo Mango Salad P250 - What is this Asian Salad doing in a menu that is mostly Spanish-inspired ? I forgot to ask El Corazon's manager simply because the salad was so refreshing and scrumptious , the question slipped my mind.

Siinigang na Salmon P450 - I loved that bayabas was used for acidity instead of the usual sampaloc or kamias. The smell of the guava permeated the broth. The salmon's eye was my favorite part. Alas another foodie beat me to it.

Malaga P375 Fresh anchovies in lemon olive oil. One of my favorite among the dishes served last Monday. I could eat that all day with bread.

Barcelona P425 Lengua Estofado. The lengua was oh so tender and melts in your mouth. I loved the tomata based red sauce.

Madrid P420 Ox tripe stew with chorizo and pine nuts. Their callos were rich and delicious! The tripe were soft and tender.

Magellan P395 - baked scallops that were succulent under those layers of dreamy cheese

Escriva P320 - pork embotido. Again reminded me of Noche Buena just like the Gaudi or chicken galantina

Ciudad Real P395 Laing with lechon kawali. A two in one dish or vegetable and protein in one. Get ready to order more rice.

Catalonia P625 - a platter of manchego, olives, jamon serrano and chorizo. This is a wonderful starter with a bottle of red wine...yum!

Paella Valenciana P625 - I wa looking for the soccarat. Alas there was none. Nonethless, it was good.

Pulpo P325 - another favorite of mine. It looked so simple just a small serving of octopus parts and potato. It tasted divine though. I can finish one order of this by myself.

Hot Chocolate with Ube-Langka Suman and Mango P210 -- It looked delectable but we failed to taste this. Oh well all the more reason for us to return.
The food was generally good. The service was outstanding. The restaurant is located in UPtown mall in BGC. The price was reasonable considering its quality and the restaurant's location.
