Cafe Enye - Spanish with a twist! - WTF Food Review

Cafe Enye in Eastwood
Spanish fused with Filipino cuisine? It's a long-time tradition but here's a new take!
A not-so-hidden gem! Located in Eastwood just in-front of J.Co is this very sultry and sexy looking restaurant which makes us thinking what in the world are they serving?

Cafe Enye specializes in Spanish cuisine with a touch of magic on their end as every dish looks magical and delicious. I can't believe that this restaurant opened 2 years ago (2015) hell I never had a chance to give it a try. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!

One fair night, my wife and I along with our daughter are cravings for something different. We've been in Eastwood for the nth time and we wanted something new. We strolled around and decided to go to the quiet part of Eastwood where the condos are positioned. I saw this romantically lighted restaurant and decided to check the place out.

Upon entering, it will give you a dim/gloomy light but only to the point that it will look very romantic and it will give you a fine-dining vibe. It's spacious but was poorly air-conditioned when we visited (maybe they are undergoing maintenance?), nevertheless, I grabbed the menu and started ordering.

My wife, as a garlic lover, ordered Aglio Olio with Chorizo (PHP235). I ordered Bacalao Puttanesca (PHP275) and Callos ala Casa (PHP440). Orders, done! Now starts the waiting game...

While waiting for our food, I wandered around (BUT WAS NOT ABLE TO TAKE ANY PHOTOS!
BUMMER!) and can't help to notice the scrap arts, they are fantastic. The interior design is very sexy, sultry and very romantic! I will suggest to bring your date or significant other and dine in this place! They also serve wines and alcoholic beverages to top off your moment.

After waiting for a couple of minutes, our orders arrived! Though, I was not able to take a picture of the callos because we are really hungry.

The Bacalao Puttanesca is worth it as they did not cheat anything when I say cheat I meant incomplete ingredients! It includes anchovies tomatoes, olive oil, capers, olives and garlic with a generous dust of parmesan cheese and garlic powder.

On the other end of the table, my wife's Aglio Olio with Chorizo is subtle and delicate. Not greasy but enough to make you drool. The mix of olive oil and garlic is on point and balanced, not overpowering each other. It also has a generous amount of chorizo on it to give the dish a little kick.

The Callos ala Casa was the star of that night! The tripes are cooked to perfection, not tough and not chewy. The beef broth infused sauce is mildly spicy and light, definitely a must-try!

Our night ended with a smile on our face, food in our stomach and experience to share! We really love the experience and we can't wait to go back and try their other dishes. I will definitely save up and treat my family, have them experience what the real deal is!
