Spicebird is the kind of meal that’s best anytime of the day, or perhaps even right after you took a dip. This is the kind of restaurant that will make you wonder why you discovered them just now.
Here is where you’d be willing to sit still for 15 minutes or so, waiting for your food. Sooner than later, you will be munching and quipping some omnomnoms and “sarap!” after every bite, risking to sound like a broken record player every time. But you wouldn’t care. It’s an honest to goodness experience, nothing can put you to shame.
Sauces take the scene in this small Portuguese restaurant located near the ferris wheel at D-Mall Boracay. They come in four bottles, each bringing different layers of flavor perfect for everyone.
A Piri-piri cubano sandwich here costs a little less than 300php, which comes with veggies on the side plus some sweet potato chips adding some texture and balance. This, partnered with a mango mint shake (120php), and all you could say right after is how you wish you could take this sandwich and sauces at home with you. And by the way, yes you could, as they sell the sauces, too.
I can’t wait to take a bite of Spicebird again. I wish they’ll have a branch in Manila in the near future.
