Dulcinea started as a pasteleria or cake / pastry shop in Mabini St., Ermita. People frequent the place for their pastries.
I remember it was Ghe's idea to dine here so I could try their impeccable churros.
Besides the sweets, we wanted to have a taste of the food they offer and as pasta lovers, we sticked to our favorites.
It's Baked Spaghetti (Espaqueti a Lasagna) for me - al dente pasta tossed in their signature sauce and then topped with bechamel.
Just look at the oozing sauce and cheese. I definitely recommend this dish.
While it's Pasta Marinara for G - pasta topped with fresh seafood and tossed in their special tomato sauce.
We also got chicken fingers as an add-on - battered and breaded chicken fillet and then fried until golden brown.
Here's the moment that everyone's waiting for.. drum roll please... Dulcinea's Churros con Chocolate.
A churro (pl. churros) is a fried pastry, quite popular in Spain and France.
I love how churros can be crunchy on the outside and then melt into a soft sweet treat on the inside. Good to be eaten as is, better with a chocolate dip.
Dulcinea is famous for their sweets but you could also try the other dishes they offer.
