Spanish fare is far from novel in these parts given the Philippines’ colonial history, and yet this originally-hidden spot located at BF Homes continues to make a buzz—especially with the opening of their Bonifacio Global City branch just last year. Bar Pintxos, as the name implies, focuses on the pintxo, which is the Basque classic of meats, seafoods, or other foods pierced (or simply placed) on slices of bread. With so small and so simple a concept, attention to detail is of utmost importance, something Bar Pintxos does especially well.
With their pintxos, toppings are always in equal (or higher) proportion to the bread base, utilizing quality ingredients in balanced combinations that harmonize through each bite. Their paella is another stellar gem, with flavorful grains of rice and generous toppings to boot.
