Bulla Gastrobar’s aesthetic contributes to the energetic vibe, with design inspiration influenced by the famous tapas bars in Barcelona, blended with elements of a traditional Spanish marketplace.

“Bulla is a true neighborhood concept that showcases the many cultural influences of Spain, and the importance and enjoyment of social dining,” said Carlos Centurion, president and founder of Centurion Restaurant Group. “Our team is committed to catering to area residents with flavors and offerings tailored for Texas tastes, and we’re confident Bulla will offer a unique and unparalleled dining experience in Plano.”
