  • Tomatito in BGC: Where Funky Meets Sexy Spanish Flavors
  • Described as a “sexy tapas bar,” Tomatito is not your typical Spanish restaurant, in a sense that it evokes a hip atmosphere as you enter its doors along 30th Street in Bonifacio Global City.

    Originally from Shanghai, Tomatito opened its first branch in Manila in 2016 under the same management that handles popular Spanish restaurants in Manila, such as Las Flores, Rambla, and Rumba, in partnership with Hong Kong-based Chef Willy Moreno of El Willy Fun F&B Group.

    Here, you get to travel back to the ’80s as the place is reminiscent of how traditional bars in Spain looked like during that time. You will easily notice its playful design and popping colors in every nook and cranny.

    Displayed on the walls of the restaurant are eye candy pieces of Flamenco attires (Flamenco is a traditional dance form in Spain). You’d also get to see posters of well-loved Spanish films neatly hanging on the wall, giving you a glimpse of Spanish culture apart from the food they serve here.

    Now, let’s talk about the food. Tomatito showcases the essence of Spanish cuisine with a modern twist. Tomatito’s menu is a treasure trove of delectable dishes, each carefully crafted to deliver an explosion of flavors.

    They have mixed cold cuts platter, tapas, sandwiches, salads, paella, and Spanish beverages which perfectly complement their selection of Spanish dishes.

    Since this is a casual dining place, it’s an ideal venue to bring friends for a night of fun over beers and tapas in the midst of a busy city.

    Start with the Mixto Platter that includes a variety of cold cuts and cheeses, a perfect appetizer to ready your tummy for the next course of meals.

    We also recommend you try two of their tapas! Savor the smoky flavors of Pulpo Tomatito, featuring grilled octopus, ham, aioli, and potato confit that goes perfectly with a glass of Saubignon Blanc to complete the sumptuous culinary experience!

    Another of their tapa must-try includes the Albondigas con Tomate made of meatballs in thick tomato-based sauce. With its rich and fresh flavors coming from various herbs and spices, this tapa goes well with rice or even crusty bread for that extra texture and flavor.

    Last but definitely not the least, experience the vibrant spirit of Spain through a hearty pan of Paella Iberica, a symphony of Iberian pork shoulder, ham, butifarra, shimeji mushrooms, and truffle oil that ultimately imparts its own essence to create a tantalizing explosion of flavors.
