Longganisa Paella at the Sunshine Kitchen

I love both Paella and longganisa! So when Ramil sent an invitation to try this Cabanatuan Longganisa Paella at Sunshine Kitchen in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), I readily said yes. It was a long trip all the way to Taguig for someone coming from Fairview, Quezon City. But I was hoping the dinner would be worth it.

It was challenging to locate Sunshine Kitchen. I was expecting a bright place with a big signage designed by sunflower all over but to my surprise, the place was a bit dim. The restaurant has dark interiors, lots of woodwork, and with little light illuminating the dining area. The walls and post are designed with stone bricks. The only place that has "sunshine" is the open kitchen where diners can see all the action as the chef prepares each dish. I wondered how the place looked like during the day when the sun hits the huge glass panels of the restaurant.

Sunshine Kitchen opened early this year and got its name from the 2-year old daughter of the owner, Chef Tanya Chua. She calls her "My Little Sunshine" and she wanted that incorporated in the restaurant's name. The reason why it was a bit dark was because she wanted a "bistro" look and ambiance for the place.

The Cabanatuan Longganisa Paella was served a few minutes when we got settled in our table. The presentation was very simple. I am used with the paella covered with several toppings that includes mussels, shrimp, hard boiled egg and strips of bell pepper. This paella was topped only with two sunny side-ups that looked like two eyes and sliced longganisa. We didn't expect that one serving would be good for 2-3 people. There were only four of us and we had three plates of the paella! We muttered that we will have lots of leftovers since paella was quite heavy on the stomach. But one serving led to another. We did not notice that we had already consumed everything. Burp!

After dinner, I went to see what's happening in the kitchen and I was glad to find that everything was spic and span.

We enjoyed our dinner at Sunshine Kitchen and hope to come back and try the 6-hour slow roasted Porchetta everybody is raving about as well as other their dishes.
