It was this year's summer when fam went to UP Town and noticed the long queue in Silantro's. We were too hungry to wait so we went to Peri-peri instead. 4-3 months later, here we are! We're willing to wait this time. 128514 Waited for over an hour to try Silantro's famous nachos.

Ordered:
Beef Nachos
Silantro's Quesadillas
Beef Quesadillas
Silantro's Burrito
2 orders of Calliente Wings
3 rice
Pritas Fritos
1L Iced tea

ALL of the food we ordered was delicious! Definitely worth the wait. My fav is their nachos. Gonna eat here again if we'll be willing to wait.

Total bill was 1.7k. Wow. We were honestly surprised. My brother and I thought it would cost us 2.5k. Good thing we pushed to wait and try Silantro if not our second option was Yabu which we think would cost us more or less 5k. 128514

Ps. My first food review ever. Not lurking anymore. 128518

I've wanted to try Silantro since reading a lot of good reviews here in looloo. The day has finally come!! We ordered Beef nachos, Pancho's burger, Pork ribs, and melon shake.

We ~loved~ the beef nachos that we ordered another set after finishing the first 128514. My brother got the Pancho's burger. He didn't like. He says that the flavor does not come together. I tried it and thought I was okay, nothing extra. The pork ribs was okay as well. I thought it was a bit dry and tough.

We'll definitely eat again at silantro. Maybe try the Kapitolyo branch. And definitely order the beef nachos again and try other items on the menu.

Ever had those days where you just crave for anything that's crunchy, cheesy and hella good? Silantro is the best option. Yung tipong yung craving mo for mexican food is pang-lasing levels pero hindi ka naman talaga lasing lol

We had Beef Nachos, Papi's Fritos and one order of Medio which consist of 2 Hard Tacos with Pork as the meat. Sulit na sulit for 2 persons with the most intense craving without the beer. Lol

Had an early lunch at Silantro and ordered their Beef Nachos and Silantro Quesadilla. I think their service has improved as my order and the bill arrived fast. As for the food, still affordable and generous! I hope they open more branches soon.

Late post!

Wasn't able to take photos of the other things we ordered since I was so hungry and I just went on to eat lol

We ordered Nachos, both the beef one and the regular one. My sisters and my parents split the beef one while I had the regular one all to myself. Hehehe. When in Silantro, all I need are those nachos and I'm good. Such a tasty snack. Goes well with the sauces they serve so don't be shy to ask for refills.

My sister ordered the Silantro's Quesadillas. To be honest, I'm not fan of the quesadillas. Too creamy and it felt more like eating lasagna.

We also had the Pork Ribs to share. This was just so-so. Barely had any meat. The Caliente Wings were just okay when it comes to flavor. Plus points for the size of the wings tho.

It was still early when we came to Silantro but the seats are already full. As expected the food tastes great! Planning to try other items in the menu on my next chill-out.

Finally tried Silantro while on our way to Pangasinan (Cavite to QC to NLEX) arrived around lunch time on a Saturday and the place was packed. We were 4th on the waitlist so we didnt mind waiting a bit. We were seated about after 15 minutes. Food were served fast because they already took our order while we were still waiting for our seats. The beef nachos were humungous. Loved that they didnt scrimped on the toppings. My soft tacos with 3 kinds of meat were savoury though it was a bit salty. It was also super filling. Good thing i ordered only 1. Haha! Hubby ordered burrito and he liked it as well. He was only able to eat half of it because he was already full half way! Service was a bit slow but it was understandable because of the full diners. Price was surprisingly cheap and i cant wait to go back :D

Had a quick lunch here the other day and I was pretty surprised that it wasn't as packed as it usually is.

Silantro, for me, has always been value for me. My friend and I split an order of Nachos, which is something I always order whenever I eat here. Really big serving, generous toppings, and really, really good.

I also had the Lucha Tacos, which you can have either with hard tacos or soft tacos. You get to pick up to three different kinds of meat. I went for the soft tacos with oxtail, beef, and pork. Again, really generous serving. The meat topping's really flavorful and tender. One soft taco might not seem much but it's actually really filling. And at Php110, sulit!

I remember having their cheese quesadilla more than a year ago and told myself I have to come back for it. This time around, however, it wasn't as good as I expected. I remember the cheese being creamy with just enough sharpness to balance, but now the cheese was too salty. I couldn't finish the whole dish. Maybe they changed it to a sharper cheddar? Whatever they did, I want the old cheese quesadilla back! 128557

Finally had a chance to eat here.

It was 9pm on a Saturday and we are 50th in the waiting list... that's how popular they are. We were seated at 1030pm and once the orders came, we forgot the waiting time.

Food was freshly made, tastes delicious and affordable.
We tried the nachos, soft tacos, ribs and skewers. All good!!

We took home paella and it's good too. Will bring my family here next time, but I need to strategize on what we'll do while waiting for more than an hour.

I was so surprised by the huge number of people dining in. We've waited for 2 hrs. (Yep, that long) to get our orders! Gaaad. Your patience will be tested here. Hahaha. But the good news is, food was so delicious! We've ordered beef nachos and calliente wings. It was the best nachos I've tasted so far! Plus it has a big serving. Yummy. Even if it took us so long to sit on our chairs, it was all worth it. Will definitely go back here next time! :)

Had dinner at Silantro with friends, or rather, attempted to have dinner at Silantro. There was already a waiting list and since we were 5th in the line, we endured the wait. When we were finally seated we ordered Beef Nachos, Salpicado, Completo Tacos, and the Paella Fajita and some beers.

There is only one photo in this review: and that is the beef nachos, because THAT IS THE ONLY FOOD THAT ARRIVED ON OUR TABLE!!! The nachos arrived just a few minutes after we were seated. At 180 pesos, it is incredibly cheap and super duper sulit. They are generous with their servings of cheese and beef. But then again, that’s the only thing we had on the table huhu. When we asked the first waiter to follow up, he said he will, went to ask the other waiters, then proceeded as if nothing happened AND THIS HAPPENED TO ANOTHER WAITER AS WELL! Incredible!!! My friend had to stand up and walk to the counter area to ask what the heck was going on. Apparently, the orders did not arrive in the kitchen and they even haven’t started to make our dishes yet!!! 128561128530128545 Perhaps they were scared to tell us, but never have I experience this unprofessionalism of staff before. After the confrontation, we paid for the nachos and the drinks and walked out very hangry. We know that Silantro is famous and always crowded but that is not an excuse to be incredibly inefficient.

I’m still giving two stars because of the good quality of the food though.
