Ponce, A new Spanish restaurant in Quezon City with the best Cochinillo

November 04, 2019 – alike Editorial Team

Finally, there's a new Spanish restaurant in Quezon City where you can wine and dine over great tapas and wine. Bienvenido a Ponce!

The owners, Dick and Mars Balajadia, were inspired by their travels to Europe, particularly Spain. While the restaurant is named after Maximo Ponce, the father of Dick, a man who grew up with an inspiring appetite for life. 

When you enter the restaurant and roam your way around, you will be welcomed with a written neon sign that will remind you to drink up because: Sangria? Wine not?


But before toasting the night away, you will surely want to indulge in Ponce’s exquisite offerings first. 

Ponce’s menu, thoroughly curated by the owners together with Chef Angelo Santicruz, offers an exquisite selection of Spanish specialties. 

Paella Verduras

Patatas Bravas

Tortilla de Criollo

Pollo Organico

Salsa Tomate

Risetti de Truffa Setas

Paella Mars y Montaña

If these dishes are already stirring up your appetite, wait ‘til you hear about Ponce’s house special--the Cochinillo Asado del Chef. 

Famed for being so unbelievably tender that a saucer could cut through it, Ponce’s De Cochinillo Asado del Chef is a Spanish specialty that finds its way back to Segovia, a city in Madrid

The Cochinillo’s deliciously crisp skin crackles as it effortlessly breaks over the slightest squeeze. Glossed over by aromatic and flavorsome spices, this Ponce house special brings a flare of flavor you won’t find in the usual lechon

Ponce was made to be perfect for all kinds of get togethers. Be it a nice dinner of Paella and Sangria, a jazzy nightcap at the speakeasy bar, or maybe even a dinner meeting at one of its intimate conference areas.  

Matched with a great ambience to top it, Ponce is a great place to indulge in your Spanish cravings.
