Galli Village Cafe: Dainty European Influenced Spanish-Filipino Cafe

February 12, 2014

Just adjacent Sacret Heart Chapel and beside the famous Purple Oven is Galli Village Cafe.  It is a dainty European influenced Spanish-Filipino Cafe with a humble indoor and al fresco area.

Food

House Specialities

paella valenciana
Paella Valenciana Good for 4 (495 php)
Their best-selling dish is the Paella Valenciana priced affordable for only 495 php.  Although did not make use of the typical Bomba or valencia short-grained rice, it is still agood paella with its rich flavor and bountiful with ingredients.  My little sister who was a picky eater gave her approval for this.


beef salpicao
Beef Salpicao w/ Rice (195 php)
The Beef Salpicao w/ Rice is for a solo meal.  It was tender but the it didn't stand out.



tuna salpicao
Tuna Salpicao w/ Rice (195 php)
 The Tuna Salpicao w/ Rice is a nice alternative to its beef counterpart.  It did not fall short in any aspect which is why I'll probably opt for this healthier option.


shrimp gambas
Shrimp Gambas w/ Rice (195 php)
The shrimp Gambas w/ Rice is just the way I like it!  It was very garlicky! 


Meal Favorites
lengua con setas
Lengua Con Setas (160 php)
The Lengua Con Setas has excellent tender texture.  However, I found some parts of it tad too salty for my taste.

Rice Meals
angus beef tapa
Angus Beef Tapa (170 php)
Their Angus Beef Tapa is better than famous tapa chains because you get real angus beef goodness in every bite.


Rice

chorizo rice
Chorizo Rice
We all enjoyed the Chorizo Rice.  Think delicious sinangag plus lots of chorizo bits, isn't that fragrantly delicious? 


Drinks

Sparkling Lemonade (39 php)
For drinks, a wonderful choice is their Sparkling Lemonade.  It's a hybrid of soda water and lemonade.  I find this fizzy lemonade quite refreshing.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Galli Village Cafe is a cozy place to enjoy a meal when in the area especially when you're craving for paella while on a tight budget.
