Alqueria in SM Megamall

I have a group of friends and we're all housewives so we make it a point to go out every month just to unwind. :) Last month, we agreed to head north in SM Megamall as per request of one of our friends (since we've always stayed in the south so far). I probably go to Megamall only once a year so I'm not familiar at all with the restaurants in the area. Our friend wanted to eat Spanish food so we ended up at Alqueria.

I read online that this resto was formerly known as Boqueria and is part of the SumoSam group of restaurants owned by Marvin Agustin, Ricky Laudico, and Raymund Magdaluyo. Alqueria also brought in partners Liz Uy, Mylene Dizon, Agot Isidro, and Charo Santos.

Anyway, I love the location of this place since it's on the 3rd floor of Mega Fashion Hall, near H&M!

The interiors were nicely done. We were planning to have a long lunch so we wanted a place that wasn't so crowded and had comfy seating.

I loved this tiled wall with a visual of a flamenco dancer
I also like these sayings on the walls :)
open kitchen so you can see your food being prepared

You can view the full menu HERE, but here's what we ordered:

Jamon E Queso drizzled with honey truffle
Salpicao P368
Pollo Leche Fritos
Buttermilk fried chicken drizzled with honey truffle
Cocido Madrileno
Paella Negra
P398 (small)
Paella Valenciana 
P398 (small)
ladies who lunch

BTW, their specialty is the Cochinillo, an oven-baked young (21-day old) suckling pig that is served whole and is chopped into pieces using a ceramic plate showing how tender and crispy it is. This costs a whopping P5,000 and needs to be ordered in advanced.

We had a good 4-hour lunch, just enjoying the food and each other's company. Happy with the overall experience and I'm glad I was able to try this restaurant on my rare outing to the north. ;p
