Tucked away in a side street amidst the busy Poblacion district in Makati is a quaint and unpretentious Spanish Restaurant with a stove-to-table concept—the traditional way of serving tapas. Taperia Poblacion is one of the three newest restaurant ventures of one of the country’s most celebrated cooks, Chef Ariel Manuel, the same chef that brought us Lolo Dad's.
Savor his Spanish-inspired cuisine that will excite both loyal patrons and soon-to-bes. From Tapas, Pintxos, Callos to Arroz, each bite introduces vibrant flavors from the Basque country and his home.
But what remains as it is, is Chef Manuel's unique touch to every single dish that goes out of his kitchen doors—making sure only the freshest and most premium ingredients are used and executed to perfection.
Worth the wait? Definitely.
