The restaurant takes pride on their Filipino-Spanish menus which included paella , kare-kare, boneless lechon ,lechon chili belly, chorizo gambas.
Paella – This is the centerpiece of any event . The dish is widely regarded as Spain’s national dish , with mussels , bits of pork , prawns with bell peppers and green peas.
Gambas con Chorizo is a traditional Spanish recipe that brings both of these elements together to create a fusion of sensational flavors.
Callos is a beef tripe soup with chickpeas (grabanzos) , blood sausage and bell peppers.
lechon chili belly
Lechon chili belly – This is a deboned roasted pig with chili peppers and spices added . There are a good assortment of condiments like traditional lechon sauce made from the liver of the pork, vinegar sauce and soy sauce.
While Filipino dishes like dory laing , pinakbet, fried fish with salsa , chicken inasal , pork and bangus sisig , dinakdakan .
Lumpiang Ubod ( spring roll with heart of coconut palm ) fried rather than the conventional crepe wrappings) They wrapped them into bite sized portion .
Bagnet is deep fried crispy pork with its skin on and in most cases deep fried twice to attain the crispy texture. This is a popular dish in the Ilocos region and parts of Tarlac.
Kangkong leaves ( Ipomea aquatica) also called water spinach , swamp morning glory , kankun , tanglong , kangkung, water glory bind are coated with batter and then deep fried . Leaves usually served as appetizers. This recipe is very much like vegetable tempura, where you coat the vegetable in a very light batter and deep fried until crisp and golden brown.
This is very important vegetable and during the outbreak of the second world war , where vegetables were scare or hard to come-by . This had saved millions of Filipinos from starvation .
bangus , chicken and pork sisig
Hamonadong Manok – It is marinated chicken hamonado chicken baked in pineapple juice. It uses the pineapple, condiments and spices as a marinade. This is quite popular dish in Central Luzon and Southern Tagalog provinces where there are pineapples grown . This is usually serve during special occasions like Christmas and town fiesta.
fried fish with salsa
Tilapia fish were deboned and deep fried into small pieces . Best served with freshly sliced tomatoes and salsa .
Pork Binagoongan – it is a pork dish cooked in shrimp paste with vegetable like eggplant and topped with shredded mangoes . I must say that it is not very salty and with the addition of semi-ripe mangoes neutralized the saltiness.
Dinakdakan is a popular dish from the Ilocos region , The dish is somewhat similar to the Kapampangan dish ( sisig ) the meat is diced rather than finely chopped
dory with laing/ natong
This dish is a perfect combination of fish and vegetables – The chefs used fillet cream dory aka kanduli or pangasius fish then cooked dried taro ( gabi) leaves in coconut milk. This dish represents the Bicol region.
lechon manok inasal
the chicken is very tender and reflect the regional taste of the Visayan provinces. However , Those looking for a more authentic taste of inasal or the commercialized ones. This is quite different.
angus steak tapa, grilled vegetables and pork barbecue
Practically recommend this trio , I like the tender angus meat, grilled vegetables and pork barbecue . The meat of the pork barbecue is quite tender and not tough .
Bulalo Steak – The dish is made from beef shank and i like the way it is presented and cooked to perfection.
Beef Kare-Kare with shrimp paste
