Sancho's Churreria Manila

This is my friend Suzy's favorite restaurant. She has been raving about this place for the longest time.
Located along Maginhawa St. in Teacher's Village, which is fast becoming an affordable foodie street, this restaurant caters mostly to students.

So this is what we ordered

Sausage Platter, P150
To tide us over while waiting for the rest of our friends, we ordered a Sausage Platter which is a combination of 3 kinds of suasages: Hungarian, Schublig and Supreme Cheese. Served with a cheese sauce.

Paella Valencia (noodles), grande, P360

This is my first time to encounter a paella dish that uses noodles instead of rice. This is a very flavorful noodle dish, but if you are expecting the flavors of paella, then you would be sorely disappointed.

Paella Valencia (rice), grande, P360
Not as flavorful as it's noodle counterpart.  Both Paella Valencia dishes in grande size can serve 3-4 people.

grilled tenderloin with mushroom sauce, P190
The meat was nice and tender.  The mushroom sauce had a funky smell to it and my other friend, Fran, said it was probably the red wine.

fish fingers with fries, P165
chicken cordon bleu, P170

salpicao, P200
Meat is very tender.  Nice flavors but in my opinion, it needs a lot more garlic.

steak and mushroom pot pie, P170
Topped with mashed potato.  A comfort food that is perfect on a cold rainy day. I would order this again should I find myself in that neck of the woods.

churros con tsokolate, P80
 5 freshly cooked churros served with tsokolate.  The churros are nice and good, to be expected since the staff here came from Dulcinea, but I wanted my tsokolate a little thicker.
