★★★★★ As Reviewed in Looloos


This started as the first thing we saw coming from Terrazas while hungrily looking for a place to eat.

And my friends can agree with me that El Cocinero, an unassuming eatery hidden far away in Nasugbu, Batangas, ended up serving some of the best paella we’ve probably ever had. Better than any paella in Manila that I can remember! My god. That tutong was heaven to scrape off the paellera pan!

The rice used wasn’t your typical rice since I noticed the were large and beady. And the flavors from all the ingredients… no words. I was speechless. This paella has to be experienced in this branch and eaten in the restaurant (we took out an order and it just wasn’t the same). I suggest trying the signature El Cocinera paella since it has the most meat and seafood.

The salpicao was decent. The pizzas were good! And so was the grilled meat platter (a really good partner with the paella btw) But everything we ate was overshadowed by that damned paella. And i mean that in a good way.
