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.

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🏼
