Sancho Churreria is a small trinket of light along a train of restaurants in a simple street in Teacher’s Village. If you’re looking for an alternative to a coffee shop where you can have intimate discussions with your girl friends, Sancho Churreria might be the venue for a change.

The place is a bit cramp though but very Spanish on the outside. The interior is reminiscent of Dulcinea. I think some of their furniture might be from Dulcinea.

I was only able to try out two of their popular dishes: The Churros Con Chocolate and their Gambas.

I was a bit disappointed with their Churros. The Churros is a bit bland and the blandness can’t be alleviated by dipping it on the chocolate dip. The chocolate that comes with it is served thick, but lacks flavor. One person can hardly finish an entire plate of Churros.

On the other hand, the Gambas is the complete opposite. The garlic and chilis are cooked perfectly and the shrimps are succulent. I would actually rather dip my churros on this sauteed garlic rather than on the chocolate.

If I get the chance to try this place out again, I will try their Paella, though there are some blogs who’re quite disappointed with their Paella for their lack of ingredients. And it’s a tad expensive, around P400 per dish.

If you do get a chance to have a food trip along Maginhawa street, I’d recommend Sancho Churreria to be included in your itinerary.
