I'm addicted to latin american foods, I hope there would be more restaurants that would focus on Colombian foods, this is resto that I recommend to my family and friends are so worth it. It's neat and platings are cool. The food presentations are nice.

Empingao is the newest Latin American Kitchen at Poblacion, Makati. If it's your first time, I would recommend for you to try the Elena Ruz sandwich (turkey, cheese, cream with strawberry jam in brioche bread), salmon tacos and the Mofongo (roast pork, chicharon, mashed bananas and bacon). Two thumbs up! Can't wait to be back!

"SO FUCKIN' GOOD" | "AMAZING" is exactly what EMPINGAO means. This newly opened Latin America Joint situated along Burgos, Makati is now my highly recommended restaurant. Visited this last night and celebrated my boss' birthday here. Fortunately, i got to try most of their best sellers on their menu for free haha!

Chef Kel Locavore is also the chef of Empingao. No wonder from the presentation palang of their food you'll automatically see the playfulness and creativity. Aside from the physical attributes of the food, malalasahan mo talaga yung creativity and unusualness of the combination presented. Galing na galing talaga ako sa pagmimix and match niya and makes it even better. Sorry but i'm actually running out of words on how to describe cause i've been to many restaurants in Burgos already but this one made a mark and even convinced me to bring my friends and go back as often as I can.

1. Elena Ruz (P480)
Brioche Loaf • Cream Cheese • Strawberry Jam • Turkey Ham • Patacones

2. Arroz A La Cubano (P290)
Mojo Pork Hash • Butter Rice • Potato • Fried Plantains • Dried Cranberries • Fried Egg
- I ordered this one and grabe sobrang naenjoy ko. The Mojo Pork Hash is over the top. Para siyang sisig na walang fats pero sobrang chunky and lambot ng meat. Ughgh! Also instead of raisins, they used cranberries cause even the chef hates fuckin raisins haha! Fried Plantains is like strings of veges fried into one, nacurious ako nung una hindi ko maintindihan kung ano siya.

3. Lomo Saltado (P540)
Stir Fried Beef Tenderloin • Fried Potato • Flour Tortilla • Grilled Peppers • Crema • Chili Oil • Chimichurri
- God this is also a favorite. Kakaiba siya. It's like a DIY taco pero sobrang unique ng taste ng sauce which is the Chimichurri + Chili Oil. Even reminded me of Japanese Beef. Sakuyaki? Something like that! Messy siya kainin pero UBER SA SARAP!

4. Salsa and Chips (P290)
Pico de Gallo • Chimchurri • Aji- Cheese Sauce • Patacones • Fried Tortilla

4. Dulce De Leche Cheescake (P390)
Alfajores Crust • Almonds • Dulce De Leche
- Was eating this when I wasn't sober anymore pero I even remembered how it taste. Naalala kong sarap na sarap ako sa cake cause hindi siya SUPER TAMIS as how it looks like.
It's like a cream cheescake with a caramel sauce.
Grabe ang sarap!

5. Iced Tea
THEY'RE ICED TEA IS EVEN UNIQUE. May hint siya ng sourness more than the sweetness which I liked. Parang lemonade iced tea yung dating.

🍽 The place is clean. Ang ganda rin ng mga wall murials nila. Colorful walls with graffiti. The place is just small but it's always jampacked. There's a bar area where you can have drinks and spend time with friends. Clean bathroom, air-conditioned. They also have a smoking area just outside. The place is open from 4pm to 2am.
The neighborhood is a bit sketchy pero keri lang basta make sure you're with friends.
The owners are always there plus sobrang ganda ng customer service.

NOTE: Just had to mention na naaliw ako sa "420" signs nila beside their best sellers = FOOD TRIP!128540

Overall rating:
5/511088️ WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK. Honestly, namamahalan ako though narealize ko lang while writing this na sobrang worth it niya to the point na parang experience yung binibili mo rather than the food. Sobrang APPLAUSE TO CHEF KEL if you are reading this, you never fail to amaze me on your masterpiece. Ito yung food na talagang pinagisipan, out of the ordinary pero hindi para maiba lang. WILD!!!
