Silantro is one of our go-to places whenever we're craving for Mexican food. Serving is huge, prices are reasonable and most of all the food is delicious.

Our favorites are their beef nachos (of course), skewered beef and rib finger with mashed potato. The paella and burger is also worth trying. The item we least liked is the steak because it's a bit leathery.

On our recent visit (September 2018), the serving for their beef nachos was noticeably smaller, but this isn't my issue - it's that the quality of beef chunks wasn't as good as before and there were lots of tendons included. Still rating this high as I hope this is just a one-time thing.

Delicious food, decent pricing & huge serving are the reasons why customers continue to flock Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina. Tried the cheesy quesadilla and nachos and both didn’t disappoint . I also appreciated ze sweet flavored chicken wings garnished with soy and chopped lettuce.

My first and last visit to this resto. Their fresh dalanghita juice didn’t taste fresh at all so we had them take it back and ordered ice tea instead. As we were seated right in front of the bar, i watched in disbelief when their barista used the stirring spoon to taste the ice tea and then put it back to stir some more. 128527
Next, a waiter clumsily bumped into the chair beside me, making my mobile phone fall. 128530 I’ve been really careful with my phone since I got it so this incident really pissed me off.

Food was fair. Their specialty pork ribs isn’t really special. The silantro paella and macho lucha steak was ok.

Nachos, Quesadillas and Wings! My go-to place when I craved for that super cheesy and creamy quesadillas, beefy nachos and tasty chicken wings. Silantro never fails! All for less than a thousand php! 128077🏻

Although I’m a frequent Silantro diner, this is the first time I tried their Paella Fajita Mix. Very good presentation and worth your money. I’m just not a fan of super sticky rice but all in all it was delicious, serving size is I think enough for two and super tipid!

This is my first time to try Silantro’s Paella Fajita Mix in Alabang branch. I like that there’s a lot of seafood included but I think it will be better if it was a little bit salty or just to add a little taste. It’s heavy in the tummy so your P250 budget is super sulit! Will definitely try again next time, maybe it’ll taste a litte better :)

Had the usual Beef Nachos (a must!), Silantro’s Paella Fajita Mix and Dinamita. The other two were pretty good as usual. The Dinamita, on the other hand, was quite spicy. I kept adding more sour cream sauce to tone it down. 128517 But overall, it was a good dining experience that’s really value for your money. 128077

127908NACHO NACHO man, I wanna be your NACHO mannn127908

Lolol it's my first time to try this pun thing! Pun and punny! 128514
Anyways, silantro has increased the prices on their menu, I dunno why cos it's been less than a year since they opened. Beef nachos are now ₱200 instead of ₱180, medio tacos are now ₱110 instead of ₱90. Maliit na bagay but still.
Got the beef nachos, silantro wings and soft tacos for hubby. We went around 8:30 and there were still a lot of people. Nachos arrived first and I'm glad their back to using the more orangey looking cheese, there was a time the cheese was pale and unappealing 128518 I dove into the nachos while hubby ate his soft tacos. Wings arrived and they were really good this time! Hubby even said he'd order it with rice next time hehe! It's like a mini version of the Don hen wings which was all the rage 15 years ago.
Service was good too. Will defo still come back here for a quick and affordable meal.

Southerners would love this Mexican theme place in #AlabangTownCenter! Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina is a new talk of the town. When they first opened in ATC, they already gained popularity especially among those who live and work in Alabang area. Their choice of location is very good. Putting the shop along the City’s Central Business District.

For a first timer, I would definitely suggest their Quesadillas. A different Quesadilla with a cheesy-salty taste that comes with large cut of fries. Tried it with different flavors offered.

For the main course, their Paella Fajita mix is a go to! It is a feast of seafood! Big shripms, mussels, squid topped with egg and squeezed with lemon. Simply amazing.

When it comes to their food servings, it is big enough to fit a family of 3-4 or your hungry group of friends.

Price? VERY affordable price! Your 500pesos will go a looooong way.

Make sure to try different set of foods on your next visit because you’ll surely come back for more.

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina is located at Ground Floor, ATC Corporate Center (new building SYKES) Alabang Muntinlupa City.

They are open to serve you from 11am-11pm. But I would suggest avoid lunch breaks due to high demand of employees eating there.

If you’re planning to go for a dinner, I would suggest be there an hour later because the place is quite small. There are long queues sometimes but you can place an advanced order so that when your turn comes, your dinner is also ready to be served.

Happy Eating!

I've been hearing a lot about Silantro but I only get to try it last weekend with bf and we had Beef Nachos, Calliente Wings and Seafood Paella Mix. We were happy with our orders and was still able to pack some wings and nachos to go. I find the serving really big and sulit for the price. Best to go with barkada as servings are for sharing.
Will definitely recommend and come back when possible!

For a group of seven people (not to mention ages ranging from 9 to 54) finding a restaurant that we would ALL agree on let alone fall in love with, is hard. This is no joke.

We tried eating at Silantro during our usual Sunday lunch out. And here's what we ordered:

1) Salpicao
The meat was tender and has the right mix of spice and salt it. It goes well with any house dip or none at all. It was that rich in flavor!

2) Beef Skewers
Delicious. That's all I have to say..and it also goes well with the white garlic dip

3) Grilled Porkchop
This one goes really well with the Guacamole dip. The dip compliments the grilled essence and seasoning of the meat.
But if you want a burst of flavor rigt away, try this with the Garlic dip. The sweetness of the meat will hit you in the end.

3) Shrimp Skewers
The shrimp has a subtle hint of spice and to compliment it more, try dipping it in the brown spicy dip. It's a perfect match for me.

Now let's talk about the best part of it all, the House Dip (or sauce, whatever you want to call it)

The house dip comes in 3 flavors: Guacamole with cucumber, Garlic and Spicy Cucumber

1) Guacamole with cucumber
This is my favorite. There's a balanced mix of guacamole, cucumber and even a hint of citrus in the end. It compliments all of the dishes we ordered. It was that good. I even wanted to slather it on rice! (He he)

2) White Garlic Dip
I rarely come across a garlic dip that I would "papak" but this one does it. It was a perfect blend, not too strong and not too sour in the end. It does not compete with the flavor of the meal, but compliments it.

3) Brown Spicy Cucumber
I haven't had time to fully savor this because I was so engrossed with the previous dips already. All I can say is, for someone who isn't fond of anything spicy most of the time, I came back for seconds.

Service: Good. They were 8/10 attentive.
Waiting time: 1 hour. Now, I know that a lot of people's usual complain about Silantro is this. But I had to take note that it was Sunday and during lunch hour. The restaurant isn't that big. In short, it was packed from wall to wall. So I understand.

The scrumptious food cancels out your waiting time. I might even go bold by saying "Hey, it was worth it" and on that note, I don't like it when people say this.. but I'll be going back for more.

P.S. it's my first review and I'm giving away 5 stars already? Gosh, I'm easy.

Silantro continues to draw lines and lines of people especially during the weekend. Luckily, we always get to snag a table during our early weekday dinners.
As per usual, ordered their beef nachos which is really for me the best bang for your buck! At ₱180, it's generously topped with cheese and beef which is just so good! I got the media (beef and cheese) and hubby got his fave quesadillas. Since these were all appetizers, everything arrived in less than 10mins.
All the food was delicious and we even had enough to take home for the next day 128522 best part was our total bill was less than ₱500! What a deal!

Ever since silantro opened in town, the lines have been crazy! As in ala LTO 128517 we're not too keen on lining up for food so we'd always say 'next time'.
However, there have been a couple of times that I'd arrive in town around 11 and they just opened so I'd order take out. My go to order is the media (2 soft or hard tacos) in beef and chicken. We've also tried the burrito which is super filled and heavy! Looking at the menu I understand why people line up, it's super affordable! The media that i order is only 90 bucks! Mas mahal pa mag dine in kse may service charge 128513
Luckily last Sunday we were early enough to grab a table! Hubby and I both got the media, their beef nachos and beef skewers. We were seated outside which was nice and windy. They (smartly) served the nachos first, good thing cos the rest of the food especially the skewers took a while.
Food was good for the price imo. Nothing spectacular but it was ok na for the price, it's even cheaper than Taco Bell.
Will gladly eat there again maybe lunch on a weekday 128522

I've been hearing good things about Silantro for the longest time and since they've opened here in Alabang, i was meaning to try them as early as December 2016 but the long lines have discouraged me. Armed with a bit of determination, I tried my luck and finally got a small corner table. The interior has a cool Latin vibe to it with the all the wrestling inspired posters prominently displayed on the walls. The air conditioning was not working properly and we had to content ourselves with a small fan on our feet. The prices of the food are very budget friendly which adds to the charm of this Kapitolyo hit! Imagine a serving of beef nachos for only 180pesos. Which can easily feed 3 to 4 people. I liked how they used beef cubes instead of ground beef which is more commonly served with nachos. The cheese and the salsa were generously slathered on top of the entire plate, so you get a good portion of toppings even on your last nacho chip. We also had a serving of the porkchop, it lacked flavor and was a little tough to chew on. The Pancholon's Burger was a thing of beauty. It was stacked neatly and the flavors are spot on. The salsa was so fresh. The side of fries was not your usual store bought friea but was freshly made with a dash of spice. We loved it. No wonder people are flocking into this restaurant. One word to describe - Sulit! Senior cards honored. Recommended.

Hoorray!!! Silantro has landed in the south!!! I'm really loving this corporate center building of ATC. A bit of an extension from the ATC building. This corporate center building is just across Molito and they are packed with lots of goodie. This is a food haven for the foodie of the south!

Eversince I tried Silantro in Kapitolyo I fell in love with it and never got a chance to try it again because of the long queue. Finally was in ATC and was looking for a place to have a quick lunch before watching a movie. Then I remember Silantro was already open. When I arrived in Silantro the waiting list is just starting to pile up. Was lucky to be able to grab a table along the bar/window area since most don't want to grab it. Yehey!

This branch is a bit small and air-condition was a bit weak. Kitchen exhaust wasn't also that good. What I do like about was the mexican wall painting and service was very fast. So I ordered their Beef Nachos and Beef Quesadillas.
✔Beef Nachos (160PHP) - One of the reason why people keep on coming back to this place. Their Nachos is really good and serving was really big. Enough to be shared by 3-5 persons. I love the cheesiness and the dipping sauce was also great. A must try!128523
✔Beef Quesadilla (160PHP)-Look at that pic of Quesadilla! Two servings of soft taco wrapping a good serving of cheesy beef! Yummy! Love the beef it was mixed of meat and tendons! Just a warning this is too big to be consumed by one person better share it. Tends to get umay if you are not that into cheese.

Overall southies for sure are happy to finally get a taste of Silantro's offerings. Those two order for 160PHP each is really cheap for the serving size and tastewise it was really good! Better come early when planning to visit. This branch is similar to Kapitolyo always jampacked!128526128076

The hype is real. Dagupan's greatest export (other than bangus and their extremely pretty & friendly Dagupeñas) is this. Mexican food from Dagupan, who knew?? And it made its way all the way to Alabang at that! I actually wanted to try them since their Pasig days but it was just too out of the way. And its only when i finally got a chance to eat at the ATC branch that i believed the hype. And believe me it was HARD due to the sheer number of people and demand.

Almost everything i tried was very good! The nachos and patatas fritas are out-of-this-world loaded with salsa, beef, guac, and gooey mozzarella cheese. Best nachos in town, hands down! The quesadilla even more so. Heck there was more cheese than the whole quesadilla itself. They really put the QUESO in quesadilla. Downside was it was nakakaumay already after i scarfed half an order haha.

I also loved how loaded the tacos were. A literal mountain of toppings! The macho lucha steak was also very tasty. Dry rubbed beef that resulted in a flavorful steak, grilled to a nice char. The shakes were also refreshing, and may i add, you'll need them to maximize your appetite and avoid getting umay right away. And best of all, for the quality and taste you're getting here... its not expensive! Busog na busog (or umay na umay) ka na at P200+. Heck at P300+ order nachos and something else then share it!

So I've read about Silantro a few times, but hesitated to try the restaurant 'cause I thought everything on the menu has cilantro 128514128556. My sister went here a few months back and recommended it to me, so when friends and I were thinking where to eat around atc, I suggested this place.

We were four in our group and we ordered a lot! The servings were good for sharing.

Dinamita🗯🧀- this was really good, green chili with lots of cheese, wrapped in a lumpia wrapper and fried. 128525128076🏻

Beef Nachos128046- this was also good but the cheese sauce was quite bitin. They serve the nachos with salsa, pico de gallo and chunks of beef 128523

Silantro's quesadillas 128020🧀- two large wraps filled with chicken and lots of cheese 🧀128523128076🏻. This was served with fries 127839. Yum!

Calliente wings 128019- this was very saucy, not spicy and had a huge serving. (See picture with lots of chicken wings). Yum!128525128076🏻

Prime rib 128046- requested this to be medium-well, good for some part but other parts were quite dry. This was served with rice 127834.

Pork ribs128055- it was good but it has almost no meat, puro buto 128556☠️

Paella127834128031🦀- was not able to try this one, it was sevred ona sizzling plate, with lots of seafood on top. My sister told me this was good but my friend didn't like it that much.

Overall, food was great and perfect for big groups. Place was quite small and tends to be full pack on meal times. They don't accept reservations. Service was also good and the perfect thing is the price, nothing was more than 300 except for the prime rib. We had a lot of food but we only paid Php. 2500 128076🏻128077128525
