Beef Nachos & Burrito – good sht 128149

Definely love this Fil-Mex restaurant even if its always jam packed, I need to wait for eternity til I satisfy my cravings (knowing their price is affordable and proportionate to the serving. Sauces are good as hell also with no doubt!! 128525128152

Tip: Go there first thing in the morning/wait til they open (11AM)!

Great Mexican food, big serving and value for money. Nachos and Quesadilla was indeed so good it seemed to be a staple order. Paella fajita mix is worth a try too, loved it actually. They have a good variety of meat for your taco/burrito. Beef is a popular choice. Its tender and succulent. For the more adventurous foodies, try ox tail and lengua. I wish there was barbacoa or pulled pork choice though but generally the variety is not bat at all. But what I loved most is that the place is humble no non sense, just good food. 128076🏼

Come in early to avoid queueing up as it gets packed during peak hours. However when unavoidable, its definitely worth queueing for anyway. Haha.

PS Always watch after your bp/cholesterol/batok you have been warned, you're welcome. 128514

The moment they put the beef nachos on our table, I couldn't stop eating it lol. It was that good!!!128077128077 Not the typicall nachos that we order from other restos as it had generous serving of strands of yummy beef all over it.
We also ordered their paella fajita mix and calliente wings and they were all good!!!
It was worth the wait and you get your money's worth!

I must say, that this is one of the best Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. Tho the queuing is a bit long (can't blame them for being so blockbuster) , we went here to celebrate a friend's birthday and no doubt we weren't disappointed at all.
Their menu rocks, I love their dips!!! tho you can munch on their burritos and nachos as it is but having these so-called enhancers (*pop - flavours everywhere) honestly, I'm not a fan of sauces, dips etc. but this made me changed my mind (it would have been a disappointment if I haven't tried it).
Serving is quite huge, you can even share it with a friend if you want to, but if you're appetite is huge (or just plain selfish 128517) you can enjoy it ALoNe. LoL...
The staff are quite nice tho but then again, coz of customers piling up... Can't blame them if they will keep you waiting for your orders or any follow ups.
Overall the place is built enough for the sole purpose of, well EATiNG. Don't expect a great ambiance (coz it isn't built for that- I guess so 🤔) . I really enjoyed my food, I think my friends too. 128076🏼

(Late post) For my first Silantro bite, we ordered Beef Nachos (P180) and Lamb Chop (P350).

The Beef Nachos were exceptionally good. I’m not big on nachos because I think it’s just a generic dish but Silantro’s version was so good I couldn’t control myself from eating it! The cheese, the guacamole, the nacho chips, salsa and THE beef chunks(!!!) went well together! Well, this is one of their popular dishes that everyone had it on their tables. I just think that it was a bit bland, but there were 3 extra sauces (garlic sauce, guacamole and that spicy sauce) that you can mix and put on your nachos to make it taste better. I liked all three sauces together! :)

The Lamb Chop was flavorful. We had ours medium-well and it was just the right doneness to fully enjoy the experience. The gravy that went with the dish made me want to finish it bite after bite. Medyo matakaw but the food was really good, so how could you resist that gluttonous temptation? :p

Considering the value for money and quality of food, I’d say that this one can be one of my go-to places every time I feel the need of good ‘comfort food’. Next time I go back, I’m eyeing on trying Silantro’s Burrito and Calliente Wings! I’ve spotted those 2 dishes on most of the tables so must be something good to try as well! :)

Where can you see a mexican resto that is affordable yet giving you the best taste of food. A simple place. Staffs are nice. Got lot of space for parking. Super duper great food!!! The beef quesadilla is so amazing!! Melts in your mouth!! I really love this restaurant. They gave me a reason why I should go back to kapitolyo and eat there again and again and again. :) two thumbs up. Ill be back soon before the year ends! #12days

Food - Ordered beef nachos, burger, silantro quesadilla, and fresh dalandan. Beef nachos is good for 3-4 persons. It's one of the best nachos I have eaten considering its taste, price (less than P200) and its serving size. Burger is served with fries. It's too big for me so I can share it; but for boys, I think the size is just enough for them. Silantro quesadilla is good for 2-3 people. It's oozing with cheese. If you're a big fan of cheese, order this. Fresh dalandan is love. It's refreshing. I just have to add more water cause it's too sweet for me.

Price - Very affordable considering the taste and serving size. There's a 5% service charge but it's nothing and you'd gladly want to give some more cause the servers are very proactive. They'll refill the nacho dips and water without having to ask for it.

Place - It's a small restaurant. Not fancy. Bearable comfort room. No credit card facility. No parking area. You'll have to try your luck to park in front of the restaurant.

Superb idea to spend sunday night here for a change! I was hesitant at first because of I saw groups of 5 and thought the queue might take forever but #ALLFORNACHOS

We took a 5-10min walk and when we went back - loco4nachogods were kind so - BAM!! Our seat is ready 128514

IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE :
FRESH DALANDAN JUICE
Fresh indeed and best substitute to lemonade! But it had too much sugar though. Will make sure I "customize" next time 128514

UNLI ICED TEA
I love how their iced tea is like that of Army Navy's! It's quite odd however, that the 2nd serving is different from the 1st but the 3rd is better than the first. Ganun kalabo pero masarap parin.

DINAMITA
* Firing chili bombs in your mouth with just enough melted oozing cheese! Though I've had utterly insane chilis, this is probably the most tolerable for non-spicy eaters. As for me, I had to add hot sauce 128513

* Thinly wrapped (plus points) but not drained so well that the sticks were still oily. I still like it though! (ouch hearty points)

SILANTRO QUESADILLA
* Got to stress that we ordered SILANTRO quesadilla and not the beef quesadilla 128549 the beefQ last time was so bad we hardly had 2 bites. Now to silantro --- chicken based, and MORE cheese! Ohboyoboyoboyy 128525 #ilovecheese

* Good for 2 if you have other orders, oh && you have to eat the fries fast else, it'll turn cold and rocky (#parangPusoNgCrushMo)

BEEF NACHOS
* King of all nachos for a peasant's wallet! I just can't believe how indubitably good this is for ONLY 180!! I just love the balance of silantro, melted cheese, tomato, onion, sour cream and guacamole! Especially the beef chunks packed with flavor and threads of goodness! (PLEASE consume within 10-15 of serving else, the beef will be gummy like bears)

My sister and I had all that to ourselves 128516128517128514 Talk about mexicraving!!

Looloove,

This restaurant was a little bit intriguing to me so to leave that rumors I let myself have a try. I did invite my friends to try their specialties last week. I was then willing to spend a lot of money since out of my curiosity I know I will enjoy the experience after all, based of course on good reviews from other food reviewers. We tried their petite location in Capitol Drive, Pasig City. Well, the place was surrounded with a lot of food choices like what Maginhawa and Lilac Streets in Quezon City and Marikina City respectively. I was surprised, queue formed just outside the place. I did not expect that day though we arrived at night and considered it was payday for some. We were the 8th one to reserve some seats so the good thing about that, the server already gave us some food to choose from their menu so as to conveniently wait. This will however shorten our luxurious time to wait for our food to be served. We ordered Beef Nachos, Lucha's Beef Steak, Pork Ribs Steak and Caliente Wings. Well the choices we had were of course worth remarkable though the only thing I would recommend was their Beef Nachos. It was the first order landed on our table but the Nachos still remained crunchy that was when we had all the orders. The pork Steak was grilled into perfection and the taste has a right amount of smoky encounter and the tenderness was emphasized once you tried biting it. Caliente Wings has a lot to offer though the Caliente thing was not that describable. Beef Steak just like Pork Ribs Steak share the same quality and tenderness. The price is quite affordable, we only had to pay less than Php 1,200 for 4 choices we had with a 5 percent service charge on the bill. I would recommend if you try Fil Mex inspired dining here than what they have in UP Town Center since I guess prices were a little bit adjusted there. A must try for all of you guys, this is a worth encounter and a great recommendation to you guys.

Finally I got to try this place! I’ve seen a lot of reviews about this so when I heard that my brother and her girlfriend will go, I tagged along! When we get there, the place is jam-packed, there’s a waiting line outside, and we had ourselves listed for number 5. We waited for more than 30 minutes or so.

Place: The restaurant is a bit old and dirty? The paint on the wall needs retouch. The floor needs a little more cleaning haha, am I being OC or what? Sorry, but I like to eat on a pleasant, clean looking restaurant.

Food: 5 stars for the Silantro’s Paella Fajita Mix, its sooooo heavy and delicious! We tried the following,

1.       Beef Nachos, it has a lot of toppings, tomatos, onions, loads of cheeses and beef are stripped and pulled. It was gooey and filling!

2.        Lucha Soft Tacos, medio, its tacos with two choices of meat, we ordered chicken and beef, it’s like make your own tacos. I don’t know what’s with their food but it definitely made us full.

I liked what they have here, my only comment was their ambiance. I think they need to do a renovation.

So here I am reviewing for my second visit. We didn't have to wait in order for us to get a table because my friend went up there first. Really really love their nachos. One of the best in town. We ordered burrito and silantro's pork ribs and lucha tacos. I just find it rude that waiters are already getting our finished plate even though we're not yet finished with other food. They just get the used tissue without even telling their excuses. Yes, that's their work but maybe do it in a nicer way which customers won't be offended. Maybe they can do it after we finished all the plate. But the food was great!
