(SPOT.ph) The letter "ñ" sometimes feels like an extraneous member of the alphabet, but Cafe Enye is definitely no extra. This restaurant, right at the heart of Eastwood City, brings Spanish cuisine closer to to the Pinoy heart by making it more...pronounced—so to speak.

Name your brew

 

Metro Manila, of course, warmly embraces Spanish cuisine. There are cozy hideouts with a cult following, there are more festive, mainstream haunts—we love them all. We love the sexy dim lighting, charming brick walls and deep color palettes, the quiet hum of diners sipping wine. It's always a pretty cozy setup, but Cafe Enye brings in the light—literally—to present a more modern take on enjoying this delicious fare.

Caesar Salad Mojo Chicken Breast

 

Their brunch offering is the perfect introduction to this novel Spanish food experience. The Caesar Salad Mojo Chicken Breast (P250) features smoky, flavorful chicken chunks served with grilled Romaine lettuce. It comes with a stunning mojo sauce that sets it apart from other caesar salads out there. 

 

Very much on trend is the Lechon Cubano (P280). It's a crisp, flattened sandwich that packs a spectacular punch despite its lean appearance. Sofrito, a common Latin American sauce full of all kinds of spices, is converted to aioli, and it's responsible for those hard-hitting flavors. Here, Mexican lechon mingles with scrambled eggs so you could even consider it a breakfast sandwich.

Patatas Bravas

 

Looking for something more filling? Try the Patatas Bravas (P270). Cafe Enye's version is a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes fried to golden cubes, then topped with a generous sprinkle of chorizo and a sunny side-up egg. This picture-perfect dish is how you begin beautiful mornings.

Enye Callos Buns

 

The restaurant continues its groove through lunch and all the way until dinner. The Enye Cocido (P395) makes for a good dish to share among family and friends. This Spanish stew flaunts perfect balance: The flavors are neither too salty nor too heavy, which gives you an excuse to enjoy it with the Enye Callos Buns (P135).

Chouxros with Dulce de Leche Cream

 

Nowadays, a Spanish meal isn’t complete without fried choux pastry, and Cafe Enye certainly does a good job with their Chouxros with Dulce de Leche Cream (P170). It comes with two dips: a luscious dulce de leche with red egg and a sweet tsokolate peanut butter. Either is A-plus. 

 

Other must-try items are the House-Cured Beef Tapa Paella Brunch Plate (P215), Steak with Sofrito Butter (P575), and a blended cooler called Calamansi-Cucumber (P90).

It's never too early...

 

If you want to have a few drinks with your meal, (yup, even for breakfast!), you’re welcome to browse through their bar selection. They have light, fruity cocktails that can go over well in the morning, as well as stronger brews for later in the day. Go on. Get some tapas while you're at it.
