Celebrate Valentine’s at Rastro, Burgos Circle!
When in Manila and still stumped for ideas on what to do for Valentine’s Day, why not treat yourself and a loved one to an indulgent four-course dinner date at Rastro, Burgos Circle?
Pop a bottle of some French 75 and celebrate this season of love!
We loveee Rastro’s mini Sidecar cocktails!
Rastro has always been my favorite secluded corner of Burgos Circle, a spot where my friends and I can enjoy our cocktails in seclusion, away from the rowdy crowds other hotspots house in the area. Check out our review of Rastro here: http://www.wheninmanila.com/rastro-burgos-circle-fort-weekly-specials/
Yet while we’ve always known Rastro for their delicious cocktail concoctions that pack a punch, this season they’re letting their mouth-watering Spanish cuisine take the spotlight as they’ve cooked up a special Valentine’s menu featuring some of their best-sellers. Cozy up to your special someone for the night and let Rastro take care of everything else with their enticing selection of Spanish dishes, and let the acoustic band serenade you with some ambient romantic music to set the pace for the night.
