In recent years, the Don Antonio neighborhood has been quietly seeing an increase in their restaurants, cafes, and other establishments. Coffee shops and Korean barbecue restaurants seem to be sprouting left and right. In spite of this, it has failed to provide Spanish food as one of its many offerings until December 2017 when 56 Wine Bar & Cocina Española opened to the public.
Rustic chic settings, red brick walls, dim lights and rows of wine set the mood for 56 Wine Bar. Hanging lights fill the room with an amber glow. Intimate by nature, with comfortable fixtures it has the elements that you need in a first date. Within the confines of Pwesto Community mall is this hidden gem. This casual dining establishment seats 20, and an additional 10 on their loft area if you want to have a more private affair.
With a wide variety of classic and contemporary dishes, you can have a feast that has elements of authentic Spanish and Filipino.
OUR TOP PICKS
Gambas Al Ajillo (228 PHP)
Perfectly cooked shrimp in a garlic olive oil sauce. The garlic bits produce strong flavors that greatly compliment the shrimp. Try dipping the bread into the sauce. It’s simply addicting.
Cheese Platter (338 PHP)
Slices of Brie, Parmesan, Roquefort, and Gouda with grapes and crackers. Perfect with wine.
Paella Española (508 PHP)
Fragrant saffron-scented rice topped with large shrimps, mussels, and chicken. The best paellas have pockets of slightly burned rice sticking off the bottom of the pan to be scraped off. This adds an extra texture to the dish. 56 Winebar definitely has great paella.
Solomillo Chateaubriand (408 PHP)
Perfectly seared tenderloin topped with a creamy béarnaise sauce. The meat is tender and melts in your mouth.
Salpicado (318 PHP)
Tender cubes of beef with full flavors of garlic, and olive oil. This comes with a side of potatoes and vegetables. The flavor of garlic really shine and enhance the dish. Check their full menu HERE.
56 Wine Bar & Cocina Española does not disappoint in ambiance, flavors, and service. It’s the perfect for intimate dinner with your special someone, or with the girls.
