And, true to form, Muchos, Boracay’s hottest Latin American Kitchen and Bar, delivers a lot of flavor and zing to the island’s famed shores. While this fresh hotspot by Station 1’s beachfront just opened its doors in March 2022, it has easily become one of Boracay’s bounce-back beacons— helping revive the island’s vibrance, injecting post-pandemic freshness, and offering superb sensorial pleasures and great eats.
Muchos veers away from the typical mex-mix restos and embraces the Latin vibe with mucho gusto. Think: South American spices, fun bursts of palate surprises, traditional Latin fare (Brazilian, Peruvian, Bolivian, etc.), a showcase of the diverse tastes and colors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America. The result? A true reflection of the Latinos’ colorful cultural history on every plate, all while pulling from the freshest catch and produce available in Malay, Aklan.
So far, the Muchos concept has been warmly received by Boracaynons and visitors alike. It has been gaining raves for both its diverse menu and couture cocktails. Its tequila and mezcal bar (the first of its kind here on the island!) and its margaritas are now island faves. Its tacos and Latin mains now have an avid following. With a trusty ceviche lineup and ultrafresh Latin bowls, guests can enjoy tropical freshness in creative ways. Muchos also adds to the fun Boracay vibe with novel experiences to try— Friday serenades, sunset hangs, Latin dance nights. These shake up the usual bar rounds, and helps create interesting and lasting memories of the island paradise. And since the kitchen bar is right on the beach, Muchos is a convenient walk along the shore and has a breathtaking view of Boracay’s majestic sunset.
Muchos has become an easy fave of island regulars who want that extra TLC when it comes to food and service—a luxury on an island that’s often too busy for that personal touch. This, according to Muchos’ restaurateur couple Patrick and Shria Florencio (also of Boracay’s Nonie’s and Little Taj), is what truly sets Muchos apart: its standing belief that “everyone deserves nourishing food and excellent service.” Muchos is a family endeavor, and joining the duo are Patrick’s brother, a passionate Mariachi performer; Patrick’s sister, a fiery Flamenco dancer; and their sister-in-law, a lovely Latina who hails from a quaint town in Brazil. They all agree that the dining experience is more than just yummy grub; it’s a holistic experience. It’s food with fab ingredients, service that makes you feel at home, and a cultural treat that still honors its island home, Boracay.
At Muchos, they’re definitely not scrimping on anything—interiors, food, cocktails, or experiences. Diners will surely get the best Latin-Boracay experience on the island during every visit. At this Latin kitchen-bar, everything is always a little extra—because islanders deserve Muchos of the good life.
