Flavor comes first, but noshing on great eats in a picturesque setting is especially appealing. The newest branch of Spanish establishment Las Flores is located at the Heritage Building near Festival Mall, making it the perfect place to satisfy your next paella craving. The Heritage Building, close to a century old, was formerly known as the Biological Production Services and goes all the way back to 1924. Las Flores’ new branch features an elegant and relaxed look, with warm wooden tones, Art Deco features, and geometric lines. The restaurant is located on Festival Mall’s Expansion Wing, providing privacy away from the mall crowd.
When it comes to food, Las Flores is renowned for its topnotch paellas. The Paella Pollo y Cerdo with chicken, pork, and green beans, and the Paella Pulpo with octopus are crowd favorites. But the restaurant also offers a variety of pintxos, tapas, and other small yet impactful plates. These include the garlicky Gambas al Ajillo, the Salmon y Salmon with marinated salmon and salmon roe, and the savory-sweet Angus & Foie Minis. Meaty mains like the USDA Prime Rib Eye and star seafood dishes like the Atun en Salsa Escabeche with tuna belly are also worth trying. The restaurant’s signature cocktails add the perfect finishing touch to a memorable meal.
Las Flores, owned by the Bistronomia group and opened in 2012, continues to be known for its contemporary takes on Catalan eats. Their menu has evolved over the years, even expanding to offer breakfast items. You can find Las Flores’ Festival Mall branch at the Heritage Building, UG/F Expansion Wing, Festival Mall, Civic Drive, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
