Muchos, Boracay’s New Latin American Resto

The Philippines’ most famous white-sand island is back to regular programming. The establishments that survived Boracay’s 2018 closure and the pandemic’s zigzagging travel rules are now operating at high capacity—with some pandemic restrictions still in place. Another sign of Boracay’s thriving tourism is the opening of new businesses.

Muchos is located on the ground floor of Zuzuni Hotel, Station 1. It’s between G-Shop Convenience Store and Real Maris.

Boracay-based couple and business partners, Shria and Patrick Florencio welcomed me to their new restaurant, Muchos.

One of the newest restaurants to dot White Beach is Muchos. Run by Boracay-based couple Shria and Patrick Florencio, Muchos serves Latin American dishes at the beachfront of Station 1. If you’re familiar with the Florencios’ other hip restos—Nonie’s in Station X and the newly relocated Little Taj in D’Mall, then you can expect a menu that caters to all types of eaters, from vegetarian to carnivore.

They have breakfast all day, main dishes that can be shared, tacos and snacks that fill up as much as the entrées, skewers, ceviches, and a drink list that features a variety of tequilas and cocktails. Keep an eye out for their happy hour deals!

Elote, ₱250, is Muchos’ take on the famous Mexican street corn. You get shredded corn on the cob with homemade mayo and sour cream, seasoned with paprika, butter, lime, and cayenne.
Gambas Quinotto, ₱380, is a Peruvian dish with a healthy twist! The creamy tricolor risotto is made of quinoa. The prawns are served with chimichurri sauce and kesong puti (Filipino white cheese).

Ceviche classico, ₱380. The catch of the day is cured in lime, red onion, cilantro, and fiery yellow habanero pepper dressing.
Coliflor, ₱150. This vegan taco features deep-fried cauliflower in a Mexican-style corn tortilla with frijoles, red cabbage, and homemade chipotle chili mayo.

Arroz Con Pollo, ₱390, Peruvian chicken rice. Creamy arroz verde rice is served with grilled chicken, roast peppers, and parmesan cheese.

Other events include Taco Tuesday, where you can get two street-style tacos for only ₱200 from 11am to 10pm. For the perfect post-sunset vibes, catch their live Latin jazz music every Friday from 7:30-9:30pm.

Muchos is located on the G/F of the Zuzuni Hotel, Station 1, Boracay. It’s open from 10am-11pm daily. For reservations, call +63-969-101-0140.
