Holidays are over but that won’t stop me from binge eating. After downing mostly Filipino dish last Christmas and New Year’s at home, my first dine out for the month is at Galli Village Cafe in San Antonio Village Makati, a quaint and quiet Spanish-Filipino cafe. Yay! New Year, New Food! Enough of overindulging myself with left overs from holidays. hehe
Galli Village Cafe is located in Ground Floor of YMCA Makati Building, right accross the Shrine of the Sacred Heart. The cafe has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. I would probably recommend this place where you can date your special someone or meet a friend you haven’t seen in a long time, who is down for delightful shrimp gambas and a good chat, why not.
The cafe’s interior consists of souvenirs, coffee table books, maps and photos from different countries the owners of the cafe have vistied. At first I didn’t realize this was a Spanish – Flipino cafe until they told me what their specialty is, Paella Valenciana.
Their Paella is only cooked once you order. This is not pre-made. If you intend to eat Paella here, It is recommended that you call the cafe so that you won’t have to wait that long when you arrive.
Beef Salpicao tastes just as good. These are beef tenderloin, no more no less. Where can you find pure tenderloin beef salpicao at Php240?
You can reserve this place exclusively, great for get-together occasions, intimate gatherings and small parties. And yes you can put in your own and customized decorations, buy balloons etc! Just don’t mess with the cafe’s original decors 🙂 Say a surprise birthday party for a friend or family member! in Makati! that’s inexpensive right. I’ll include this in my go-to place list just for that. Overall it’s a small cafe that can fill you up anytime of the week especially on a work week. I will come back to try the Angus Beef Tapa and their all day breakfast menu.
Now for the dessert. did I mention Purple Oven is just 10 steps away from Galli? It’s also in YMCA Makati. There you go, now excuse me while I take a bite of my banoffee pie.
