Even before I won a 200 gift certificate from Galli’s Village Café, I was already familiar with the restaurant. I was totally impressed with the wonderful food reviews about Galli and these reviews convinced me that I should try it for myself. I invited my two good friends who also love to pig out! 🙂
The restaurant is located at the quiet neighborhood of YMCA Bldg on Sacred Heart St.
It is a small and cozy place which I immediately fell in love with because of its ‘homey’ ambiance/atmosphere.
The green and white walls complimented the table cover.
I could not get my eyes off with the exquisite paintings hanging on the walls as well as the portraits of the invigorating foods and amazing places.
Meanwhile, a pile of books about traveling and culture of different countries also captured my attention.
It was lunchtime and luckily we were the only customers at that time. We were too hungry that we immediately ordered the resto’s most prominent dish: Paella! We were informed that the dish would be served after 15-20 minutes. So while waiting, we checked the menu and asked for foods that we could easily get.
The Almondigas (php 70) filled our empty stomach.
The sotanghon and meatballs complimented the hot and delicious soup. We enjoyed the bowl of soup and wanted for another one!
My friends and I agreed to quench our thirst with the Sparkling Lemonade (php 39).
Looks ordinary? Wait until you sip it! It will totally bring coolness to your mouth! The lemonade tasted so natural that we felt that they squeezed real fresh lemons for us!
The Chorizo Egg Burger w/ Potato Salad (php 120) is the perfect appetizer!
The delectable burger contains cucumber, chorizo, lettuce and tomato with potato salad on the side.
When I take the first bite, all I could think was asked for the secret recipe and try it at home!
Here comes the QUEEN, finally!
The Galli Village Café’s PAELLA VALENCIANA (php 255) arrived!
It had been years ago since I tasted a Paella. I could not even remember how it looks like. I actually stared at the Paella for few minutes before sniffing it and start eating.
The soft and tasty rice, shrimps, peas, beans, red bell pepper, chorizos and eggs all combined to form one great dish. We definitely enjoyed it!
My friends and I all agreed that the Paella of Galli Village’s Café is a must taste for Spanish cuisine lovers! We will certainly visit your newest branch at Maginhawa and satisfy our soul again with your irresistible dishes!
