My second long distance relationship was with one the best tacos I’ve ever tasted. All the way from the south I go through the traffic of EDSA just to have a bite of the tacos of Silantro at East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo Pasig. Every Kapitolyo visit I make sure to visit Silantro and I always order their Completo soft tacos and their beef nachos.

Their tacos come in three choices; Ligero which is a single choice of meat, Medio a double choice of meat and my love, Completo which is a TRIPLE choice of meat. Their meat choices are beef, fish, pork, lamb, chicken, lengua and oxtail. So if you’re like me and love their meat fix you’ll go for the Completo. The taco will consist of your choice of meat, some sort of marinated tomato like a pico de galloand some greens. They come with their sauces made from heaven. One sauce is sour cream then a green cilantro-ish tasting sauce and a really spicy hot sauce which I stay away from. Oh that green sauce I need a whole bottle of it to go please

Another dish I always order is their Beef Nachos. It’s heaven. The beef is tender and full of flavor and depth. It’s a bit sweet and a bit salty but together with all the components of the dish, it’s an orchestra of flavors.

If it’s your first time eating at Silantro I’d go for the tacos and nachos. It’s a classic and you won’t be disappointed. Pro tip: go there before rush hour meaning an hour or two before the lunch and dinner rush. Even on weekdays they get full easily and there is always a waiting line. But don’t be discouraged. A culinary haven awaits.

I always go back to this place no matter how far it is from by home. Haha. Or I would always jump onto the next uber when my friend invites me here. Either way, I just love Silantro like that. Their beef nachos is the standard to the competing seemingly nachos like out there. Cause for me, they are still the best. Crunchy taco chips, covered with melted cheese topped with generous beef chunks, and drizzled with some silantro sauce. That’s it for me! Sometimes the beef chunks are even more overwhelming that even if the chips are gone, there are still a lot of beef on the plate. Also, their wings! Ugh!! It’s so good. Nestled in that buffalo sauce, good and big serving of wings. Though the price has slowly climb up, but nevertheless worth every penny. Their wings should definitely go with rice. So good!!

As always the original branch is always jammed with lines even if you go there past lunch time. But service is fast nevertheless and pretty organized too. It’s like a neighborhood find. But with them expanding on South and further North, I’d always love to go back to the original. I guess nothing beats them still.

Cilantro was the first restaurant I have encountered during the recent boom of holes-in-their-walls in the Kapitolyo-Pasig area.
The place is a nondescript joint that at first glance looked like your typical carinderia that only targets the local neighborhood or occasional passersby. But boy oh boy! Their food! It is definitely of a stand-alone-restaurant quality (if only for the yum factor 128077🏽)!
They're cheese quesadilla is a must! Their burrito is a full meal on it's own!
I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this to foodies, both established and novices!
Budget for a single person is Php 300 - 500!

If you are craving for Mexican cuisine, with a dash of Filipino, I suggest you go to deepest part (literally) of Kapitolyo, Pasig, to eat in the one of the most sought out restos in the area and try Silantro: Fil-Mex Cuisine.

Right beside the Holy Family Church, you can find this little cucina, with a lot of people outside waiting for their turn to eat their delicious food. I've come to this place for lunch, merienda, dinner and even late dinner, and they have always a long list of reservation. I can't really suggest the best time to go here, you just wait for your turn :). I discovered this place when my sister invited me and wife to eat lunch. They discovered Silantro from a review and it said that they have the best nachos in town. That's why I'm writing this review, to spread what we learned and let others know what they are missing out.

They offer a variety of of Mexican dishes. From tacos, nachos, burritos and paellas, with wings and burgers in the menu. I've tried the burritos and paella, and I can say that its not bad. What we really love are the nachos and wings that they offer. These two are what brings us back to this place.

Their Nachos have a lot of topping and sauce. You really can't go wrong what nacho to pick up! The sauces really mix well together, and don't worry about running out of any of their three sauces, they are all refillable! The Calliente wings is mix of hot and sweet. I prefer hot dishes because it really revs me up to eat more. The sliced cabbages is a good topping. For me, It cleans your pallete (like sushi) :p.

So whenever you are in the area, try to drop by at Silantro, you won't regret it!

Kapitolyo is one of my favorite places to eat because of the variety of food that the area is home to. A lot of restaurants here are ones that I actually crave to eat at so I’m thankful that it’s nearby. This place reminds fellow foodies of a lot of restaurants but one of the more popular associations I think is Silantro. Everyone loves Silantro. I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t!! Silantro is super easy to find despite being in the more hidden part of Kapitolyo and parking isn’t too difficult - you will need to walk a bit for some of the street parking spots.

The tacos are good and they’re reaaaally cheap. The ligero which gives you one choice of meat is only 75 php, a steal in the current world we live in. Hahaha. What I come back for though are the beef nachos. SOLID serving of nachos, cheese, beef, veggies, cheese, have I said cheese? It’s so good, I don’t know why. At only 180 php, I shared this serving with two people during this visit and it was more than enough for our group.

Their service isn’t bad either, considering that this branch is always jampacked, they’re still attentive enough regardless of how many people are trying to get their attention and have already asked them to do something. They try their best to attend to each table regularly and I think they have enough staff members for such a busy place.

Overall, I wish this branch had more space but it might not be possible at the moment as the areas beside it are occupied as well but it is good to see that they’re putting up more branches. Although, I’ve heard that those are packed as well!

We had early dinner last week in Kapitolyo, just a few minutes ride from Marco Polo. Kapitolyo always has diners and its difficult to park esp on a rainy afternoon. So we took Grab128522 no sweat!

At around 6:00 pm on a Saturday, the place is half full. There were 2 vacant tables, so we are quickly seated. Since its just me & 2 of my girl friends, we had a Nachos (P160) and Silantro Quessadillas (P160). Yes! Just 2, but with its generous serving, we're so full. Their nachos consistently looks festive! Its one of mu favority. Their quesadilla, is so heavy!

Verdict: Still have the best tasting food plus super affordable. Literally, quality and value for money128522

I've been here 3 times and it's still one of the best go-to places for a fil-mex fix. Everything's super savory and their Nachos and Paella will leave you wanting for more. If only my stomach is a bottomless pit, I'd order 3 of each. Hay, sarap! 128523

By the way, line is pretty long all the time but it's totally worth it.

We were a bit late when we arrived so my friends already started their late dinner. They ordered Nachos (no. 1 on their menu), and beef and chicken skewers. We tasted and we liked it. Soft, tasty
piece of meat.

We didn't like what we ordered. Dissapointed with their Beef Quesadillas P160. I dont know what's off, but it has a fatty part of beef na parang litid yung texture. Cheese was ok to the point na nakakaumay. Wrong choice that night.

It's a rare moment that I was able to make the CBF join me, the Zo together with J-lo ft. Jbabes for dinner. He's not into other people. He's special-- alien like-- 🤣 (so happy he doesn't have looloo account-- he's lazy as well!) 🤣🤣🤣

(Quick recap: the CBF is my person. 128521)

Anyway, J-lo loves this place and it's near his area so the Zo & him loves to eat here. (Recap again: I never liked the places that they like.) 128514

So since I'm with them, they ordered like there is no tomorrow, I mean-- check out the pictures. 128517

Guess right-- didn't like any of it. So much that I forgot the names of what they ordered. It was really sad-- even the mentor, Chef H-- tried here and we share the same review. I got nothing bad to say, I just didn't like the food. It was okay I guess.128517

Maybe I can try again, soon. 128521

Been here 3 times and I they never disappoint me. Their beef nachos are awesome as well as their Calliente wings along with dalandan juice. The Paella 🥘 is a so-so. I also love the Silantros's pork ribs. Customer service was good but you really have to wait coz it's always almost crowded in this branch.

I lived just around Kapitolyo and must have been intrigued by the long lines. The place is unassuming and not the fancy ones we expect from a top food hub in a food blog. Place is small but certainly not intimidating. We ordered burritos, beef nachos and chicken quesadilla. My oh my!!! The quesadillas are authentically yummy and tasteful. The nachos as well are must try, with the beef so soft and delicious. The burritos are standard acceptable but overall the experience was a blast!!! This is a must try guys!!!!

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.
