It was the fourth time we tried going here since the first thrice were a bust because of the long line. Finally we got seats for two. The ambiance was nice and the servers were attentive.

They offer tacos with the choice of 3 meat. I chose oxtail, beef, and lamb. The oxtail was so good that I wished I chose triple oxtail but nonetheless the others were also delicious. We also ordered Silatro paella. The serving was very huge that we weren't able to finish it. It was served with tahong and 2 grilled chicken fillets. It was perfect with lemon. Sad thing though is they don't serve alcoholic drinks which is perfect for Mexican food. Server said it was because of the church beside it.

All in all, the food was great we definitely would come back if the line isn't that long and if we want drinks with our Mexican food, good thing they have a branch in Alabang.

: MUCHO TE AMO NACHO! Their nachos are the best nachos I have ever tasted (so far). My partner recommended it to me (it's near his place and he's a fan since then) and I really loved it. He said that it's jam-packed on weekends but we were able to get seats around weekdays afternoon.

Do not forget to try their Calliente Wings (too saucy for my taste buds), Dinamita (perfection), and Paella Fajita Mix, they're awesome too! Kudos to Silantro for being generous with their servings and salute to the staff for great customer service.

Very very affordable and excellent food! Taste has always been consistent on every visit. Sulit sa pagpila ng mga 30+ mins. I recommend the hard/soft taco completo meal and NACHOS!

One of the best nachos in town! Been eating here since 2014 and tell you, it never disappoint. (Well, at least for the food) 128513

We always go for beef nachos (P180), silantro quesadillas (P160) and calliente wings (P180). I also tried their paella fajita and grilled pork. Everything is just awesome! Truly a party in my mouth 128518

Overall, the food is great, the serving is generous and the price is cheap. The only downside is the long queue, but it's always worth the wait. 128077

Discover unique Fil-Mex fusion in this unpretentious laid-back resto in Kapitolyo that fits your budget. Silantro is one of those concrete rectangular box with both indoor and outdoor dining areas. It has picnic tables for you to sit and dine on.

Mexican Rib-Eye (Php 880)
There is just something about their beef that you cannot get enough of. It is moist, tender with a hint of sweetness that drives you to drive your fork back for more.

Silantro's Quesadillas (Php160)
comes in two big serving, it was unlike anything I've had. It's drowning in mushrooms, chicken, mozzarella cheese, it was soo good. It was unexpected. Served with fries on the side.
Good for two persons.

Service is something the Silantro staff is very particular in. It is obvious that they are well-experienced with long waiting lines because they smile.

I just got to try Silantro recently, yehey! Better late than never. Just went there for some snacks before meeting up college friends for our reunion at Locavore.

Hoping for no queues to secure table, I went in and asked for one. They're full inside so I agreed with sitting outside. Medyo mainit but since i was in a hurry and my curiosity for their nachos cannot wait anymore, I got the last table for one outside.

Placed my order right away, waited for some 15 minutes for them to prepare this well-raved about nachos, and served it right in front of my. It was the same cheesy and beefy nachos with a mix of greens and some reds I always see in my friends' Instagram posts or looloo reviews. After taking a picture of it, I started digging.

To be honest, I was disappointed with the nachos. It was cheesy but only at the top of the pile of crispy nachos. Sad thing about it was the cheese wuite hardened already and stuck on the nachos. There was some chunks of beef on it but I think not enough in contrast to the proportion of nachos. A hefty serving of other ingredients like onions, tomatoes, some jalapeños were also there.

Sad experience probably because my expectations got set too high. Next time you eat their nachos, make sure to mix it fast, before the cheese hardens. They also served some side sauces for extra dip.

I'm still into trying Silantro's other dishes though! Will surely come back if I'm in the area. 128512

We had a hard time looking for this place since we are not really that familiar with kapitolyo. They say that there is always a line before you can dine with this restaurant. luckily, when we arrived we were able to get a table although we were seated outside or non air conditioned area. It is obvious that the restaurant is an old house before that just turned to be a cantina. An enthusiastic crew approached us and told us what was their best sellers knowing that it was our first time to eat there. We had paella since I am a big fan of paellas. Being my favorite dish, Silantro's paella is not that appealing to me. Less ingredients, too salty and not reasonable for the price. I will still go for Amelia's in terms of pricing. The beef quesadilla have a big serving and value for money is reasonable although it is too salty that We were not able to finish the food. Thumbs up for their Tacos which they serve with three different sauces and its unlimited. Way better than el chupacabra! Service is kinda slow knowing that they are always in full house. But, for a first timer and for the price. Fair enough. I guess they can improve more on the ventilation and time of service. Parking is kinda hard since they are always full and you can only park outside in parallel. #henrysintaxgiveaway

You can never go wrong with Silantro. I think it's the best Mexican food I've ever tasted. Usually, we order beef nachos, burrito, grilled pork chop, caliente wings, etc. the sauces for their food is excellent (esp. the garlic sauce). However, you always have to wait in line because this place is jampacked every night and it could at least 30 minutes to be seated (seats are very limited)

Overall, the service is good and the food is excellent. I'm willing to wait for minutes just to get my hands on that beef nachos! 128513128077🏼

Silantro will always be my Fil-Mex to-go place!

Went here for the 1st time last November 2015. Since then, I cannot count anymore how many times I went back to indulge! Never came a visit that it was not jam packed, and dude, it was all worth it! Whichever seats will be available, might it be inside with AC or outside, still, I'm in!

Well, we always start off with a pica-pica, something to munch while waiting.

BEEF NACHOS 1108811088110881108811088
Yes, an overwhelming plate of Nachos! Topped with small chunks of tender beef, sour-sweet tomato salsa, and generous torched cheese! Plus, their unlimited, 3 sauces on the side. Yes guys, unli! 128079🏼 (Guacamole, with their own version I think, since it was more on cucumber rather than avocado, love it still. Garlic sauce, and chili sauce.) Sauce sucker here!128514 So it's a plus point for me! Definitely good for sharing, 2-3 pax.

QUESADILLA 1108811088110881108811088
Always be my #2 after Nachos! 2pcs soft tortilla, it was bland alone, which is supposed to be like that since the inside was savory chicken strips, mushrooms, and cheese. Dude, oozing with cheese! Talagang hindi tinipid 128556 It was also topped with potato wedges to make it more heavy!

CALLIENTE WINGS 11088110881108811088
4 large full sized wings drenched with their sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. Flavor is a bit strong, which is still fine with me. 128556 But for those whose not into strong flavors, nothing to worry guys, coz it was topped with shredded lettuce, which actually compliments the taste.

BEEF SKEWERS 11088110881108811088
My friend had it medium rare. Meat was tender and cooked perfectly, juice coming out on every bite! I had few, since it wasn't mine and he was like really hungry! 128514 Paired with their Silantro rice. TIP: they don't have plain rice

PAELLA FAJITA MIX 110881108811088
Just so you know, I'm not into rice. Like since secondary school! So this dish is not for me. My friend enjoyed it tho, topped with 2pcs prawns, few chicken strips, squid, and egg sliced into half. Verdict was biased, I know!

TIPS: 128149 6PM onwards will be blockbuster! You will be queuing up for 20-30mins to be seated. Good thing, service is really great that you may serve you water while waiting (of course if you ask)
128149 You may already place your orders while waiting, like if you're already no.2 on the list, by the time you're table is ready, 1st dish will be landing after 3mins!
128149 Church is just beside Silantro, Sundays will be really packed. Might be a lot of struggle to find parking. Limited parking spots.

Verdict:

FOOD 5/5
SERVICE 5/5
Servers are really prompt and alert. As much as I know, everyone/most of them are Kapampangan! You may always ask for your sauce and water refills. They never frown, everyone seems to be approachable and smiling! Good job!
AMBIANCE 3/5
VALUE FOR MONEY 5/5

Will always recommend this Cantina! One of my personal favorites9786128149

Based from the photos, hindi halata na mahilig kami sa cheese. 128517128584 Hahaha!!

The line here in Silantro, Kapitolyo branch is rarely short! The place is quite small and more often than not, you'll have to be seated outside. But it's definitely worth the wait, and the heat (maybe) 128540

We ordered their nachos, the quesadilla and their steak (forgot what it's called and I don't have a decent photo 128555). Oh, my friend also ordered some extra mashed potatoes. 128525

Nachos are great, lots of cheese and meat. Just make sure to spread them evenly or else the bottom chips won't have any, because you'll be eating all the cheese and meat beforehand. 128513

The quesadilla was good, and oozing with cheese!!! 10084️ I enjoyed this a loooot. 128055

Their steak was also pretty darn great, tender and well seasoned. The gravy was perfect and the mashed potatoes were well mashed and creamy!!! I cannot say anything bad about their food! 128584

When you're waiting in line, you can already pre-order so that you won't have to wait too long when you're already seated. One other thing I've seen people do is to drive by, order and just take out. 128077🏼

Silantro

I have been craving for tacos for a month. I was thinking of the closest tex-mex restos here in Taguig but... on that front Silantro, a Fil-Mex resto, was heavily advertised to me by my boss, so on a Monday while we were at the area (Capitolyo, Pasig) I finally get to try it.

The Place
You might construe it as a cheap-yy restaurant in a very unlikely venue but it's not. It's more of a college restaurant that I often go to when I was in Los Banos. The place has limited seating, just around 8-12, but if you're flexible you can find yourself a seat somewhere there.

It's packed at lunch time so if you're planning to go, schedule it before the people come rushing in.
For the environment, it's quite loud since it's a small place and on the warmer but not uncomfortable.

The Food
We just ordered 3 foods and I have to say, I dragged myself out of there because I'm so full. The place-everything about it screams SULIT! Really value for your money and very good for sharing. I'll walk you through it here.

Nachos (PhP 160.00)
This is a beast of a nacho. It's your basic nacho actually but more cheese and beef. I love their beef! It's so juicy and soft. Not the kind of beef that you have to chew to death. It's very tasteful and served with the cheese partnered with one of their sauces- it's just works!
They have three sauces there- all unlimited serving. The sour cream, which is less viscous but very tasty- partners well with everything though I like it to be thicker a bit so there's the body when you chew it with the food. They can use a thickener (Xanthan Gum will be very good on this). Then there's the Salsa. Very good salsa. I think this is fresh pureed salsa. I mean you can still see the seeds of tomatoes and it's not salty. You can do with a big smear and just a piece of nachos. Really great. Now, there's this green sauce that I don't care for. I'm sorry but I didn't like it. It's an acquired taste I guess.

Burritos (PhP 180)
Every serving in this place is big. Hindi sya tinipid and that's what I love about it. The burrito can be divided into 4 slices and you'll still get a decent serving. It's around 7 inches with at least 2.5-3 inch in diameter (guesstimates). So it's really big and compared to other burritos that I've tasted, hindi din tinipid ung fillings. The beef is everywhere, the rice is just well cooked, the vegetables are there. It's a great meal so to speak.

Quesadillas (PhP 160)
We're feeling cheesy that Monday so we ordered another cheesy meal- Quesadillas. And when I say cheesy, the cheese was literally all oozing out. You can check the pictures. The serving is for 2 and they actually put fries on top of it but I don't think this is a good combination. I find it too much I guess. Too much oil and cheese in one plate.

The Service
They were all very attentive, a bit tad many servers for a small place but I guess that's how hip the place is. Very polite and generous with the sauces. Our saucers never dipped below half. So Kudos!!

So over-all, I'm very happy that I tried this place. It's a five-star restaurant for me because of the price and the quality of the food that they serve. SULIT talaga. I hope you can start looking for a bigger place so you can accommodate more people and try to widen your marketing reach. People would want to meet you guys!

Thanks again!
