TITO ba o TITO ba? There's ELOTE'food choices around but having to try titto's the fourth time, here are some "recommendables" from their menu
Nacho El Gigante @475/245PhP 6/3pax
I could not say no to these nachos, i love the chunky beef cubes and chimmichurri. It was still crunchy even though we took some time before we consume it. However i found the cheese to be few. With they could have some sort of "deconstructed" nachos.
Mexican Elote @245PhP
This is the second time that i've tried this wonderful dish. The corn kernels really goes well with that spicy and flavorful garnish. Truly a must try
Tittos Wings @245PhP
This one is my favorite. The chicken wings were saucy and tangy. Do not forget to dip it in the sour cream to give your sense of taste that satisfaction you're looking for for appetizers
Titto's Salad @225PhP
Really cool mix of greens, patacones, smoked salmon, peaches, kani sticks, cherry tomatoes, cheese, balsalmic syrup and that peach basil vinaigrette!
Pollo Pizzadilla @345PhP
This one did not really made an impact for me. Well, it got chicken chunks and cheese.
Beef Barbacoa SS Taco@155PhP
Love this SS black taco. The barbacoa tastes a little citrus. The meat is tender and enjoyable enough.
Sisig SS Taco @155PhP
A must try to! If you're looking for SS taco with a crunch, you gotta have this! The sisig is also rich in taste.
Paella de Carne 445/745PhP (3-5/8-10pax)
Hurray! They've improved on the taste! I remember last time i tried this it tasted bland. So I'm joining this in the list of my recommendables. It hot grilled chicken and chorizo as main proteins.
18 Hour Gaucho Steak @550PhP
This is one of their mains. This did not shine much as the meat got some weird after taste. Well, the last time i tried this, it was better. I guess it was an off day for them (and supplier)
Tamarind Cola @95PhP
Among the three drinks they've served, this one ranks in the middle. It's a little classic iced tea with a twist of cola
Cucumber Elderflower @110PhP
Among the three drinks, TK loved this the most. This cucumber with a floral twist brings some kind of refreshing sensation in the mouth.
Pineapple Ginger @95PhP
Among the three drinks, this is my least favorite. It tastes a little herbal. The hinger made the drink a little "for the elderly" -something recommendable when you feeling too healthy or when you catch a flu.
Tittos Ube Churros @225PhP
Hasnt change. I like that it's unique. The ube tastes a little weak, nonetheless it's there.
Frozen Brazo de Mercedes @195PhP
it's chewy and it's not so sweet. But wait, you have to thaw it a bit. I like this.
The most recommendable is their dulce de leche cheesecake which is also frozen (thawing needed) but really, don't miss this dessert.
Oh, for my fourth visit here, this one is sponsored. Thanks yo the team who prepared the food. Now you have an idea what to get from this resto.
Unlimited wine (Gallo Family) @499PhP
Unlimited Margarita (Jose Cuervo) @399PhP

Team Kaladkarin was lucky again to be invited the ever friendly Winslow this time to try out Tittos in Kapitolyo. Tittos is a Latin BBQ restaurant but for me it was more of a mexican resto. Named after their joke about being Titos or Uncle they name invented this word Tittos by adding another T to its spelling. :)
The place is very spacious with a beautiful setup second floor. I love the wall painted arts giving a lively vibe to the place. Similar to their Soru Izakaya they made this place more of a family kind of hangout place. At 1st I was scared for them to come up with a mexican resto near a very famous Fil-Mex in the area but after trying out their food, I can say their food are way better.
Here are some of the food we got to try out.
🌮Nacho El Gigante - a huge serving of nachos that is not that cheesy but got all the delicious veggie that bring out the true flavor of Nachos. I love the hint of spiciness from the Jalapeno.
🌮Tacos - we got to type of soft shell tacos the Sisig and Beef Barbacoa. My fave among the two was the sisig taco. Very flavor and the bits texture from the meat was awesome. While the Beef Barbacoa was equally good its tender meat. Love them both!
🌮Tittos Salad - Love this salad. I love the dressing and the patacones in it. Giving the salad added texture and flavor. Great healthy starter.
🌮Pollo Pizzadilla - a fusion of pizza and quesadilla!!! Amazing! Another big serving that is good for groups. Love the combination of flavor in it. The grilled chicken and pimiento gave it a delicious flavor.
🌮Tittos Wings - one of my fave. Love the lovely bbq flavor of the wings and best dipped with the bleu cheese crema.
🌮18Hrs Gaucho Steak -tender juicy steak. love it!
🌮Costillitas - My fave! BBQ Ribs that is packed with flavors. Love the char on the meat adding flavor to its sweet and spicy flavor. A must try!
🌮Elote - a mexican way of serving corn. Cheese and spices on top of the torched sweetcorn. A unique way of having a corn giving it additional flavor to it.
🌮Ube Churros - Churros and Ube wow love it!
🌮Frozen Brazo De Mercedes - another dessert but this one put up a fight. It was rock solid frozen. But the effort was worth it cause it was really good.
Overall a great addition to kapitolyo and a great place to bring your family or barkada for feastful meal.

Team K got another invitation from Winslow this time for Tittos, and this got us all very very excited! We had so much fun in Soru Izakaya, so being able to visit another one of their restaurants was definitely something we wouldn’t miss for the the world! At least for me, I was really really looking forward to it, and I was more ecstatic that the timing was absolutely perfect, being scheduled when I’m already back in Manila!
The restaurant had high ceilings and a huge dining area, but amazingly it gets filled a lot during meal times. The decorations of the place were so beautiful, utilizing hand painted designs on their walls and wonderful rustic feels on their choices of wooden tables. Everything we ate was again very impressive in terms of presentation and taste. The flavors were all exploding in every bite of every dish. The colors are so beautiful, popping out of the plates and very pretty to photograph. To be honest, I could not choose the best item for me at all because I loved everything we tried, and I couldn’t pick a least favorite either.
1.) Nacho el Gigante
We started our feast with the ever present Mexican sharing plate, a ginormous helping of nachos and it was really good! It was cheesy, spicy and very flavorful. The chips they use is of high quality, still crispy after a good long hour of taking photos. Hahaha I'm sure it would have tasted better if we ate this immediately.
2.) Sisig Tacos
This was one of the best foods I ever ate in my life. I definitely have this on my must-eat-before-I-die list. Seriously! The sisig was unexplainably awesome, salty with a tinge of sweetness and just the right amount of exploding flavors! And to enjoy it as a taco was just the absolute best! ️
3.) Beef Barbacoa Tacos
This was very delicious too! This came on a black soft taco shell and it was as delicious as it was beautiful. The meat they used was very flavorful and the texture was spot on.
4.) Pollo Pizadilla
This was great too! The toppings were delicious! I particularly loved their Chimichurri sauce on that pizza and it went vey well with the cheese and grilled chicken. The serving size is quite big, great for sharing!
5.) Tittos Salad
You know it's a good restaurant when you see me munching on the veggies. I ain't a fan of salads but man this one was soooo gooood! I particularly loved the balsamic dressing and the patacones on that bowl of crispy fresh greens. It was really great!
I really liked this too! The paprika butter and tamarind sauce gave the sweet corn so much flavor! I liked that you can choose to have this as on the cob or shredded. In our case it was shredded for us and it was my preference too.
7.) Tittos Wings
I thought it would be just the usual sweet-savory type but theirs had a charming unique flavor too. The pieces of chicken wings were actually huge and that's always a good thing! The sauce was spicy and exploding with flavors, while the texture of the chicken was absolutely perfectly cooked, amazing!
Ribs is always a good idea! The sauce they use is so delicious, sweet with a deep spicy Mexican flavor and the cook on the meat was beautiful! The char was perfect and the meat easily falls off the bone. Definitely worth a try! ️
9.) 18 Hours Gaucho Steak
I really liked this too! I particularly loved that they use deep friend shallots because it gives the dish character. The cook on the meet was great, I really liked it! The plating was also very very beautiful!
10.) Paella de Carne
I'm not a big fan of paella in general, but I loved their version. The flavors of the rice pillaf was very pronounced and the meat toppings enhanced the dish on a whole new level. It was great! I enjoyed this with all the other meat entrees served to us.
11.) Tittos Ube Churros
Don't miss ordering their desserts here! This one was unexpectedly great too! The churros was very tasty and I was happy that I could actually taste the ube. What got me was definitely the caramel!
12.) Frozen Brazo De Mercedes
I prayed hard that this will be included in our tasting menu and the Lord grants wishes if your heart is pure! Hahahaha This was absolutely delicious, if it wasn't too rock solid. Frozen naman e, covered with the proper description. But when it eventually softened, it was so delicious! It wasn't too sweet which was perfect for me!
I wasn't able to try all of the beverages but I was lucky to get the green drink with the cucumber. I actually wasn't able to get what it was called. It was absolutely delicious and refreshing! It complimented very well with all the food.
All in all, it was an excellent experience and I highly recommend coming here! The food is amazing and the place is the best venue to chill. I can't wait to come back for more of their wonderful food creations. There's a secret speakeasy bar in the back of the restaurant but I wasn't able to try their drinks anymore. I will definitely come back for that too! ️
Good times with Team K! EJ B Russel F Jayson J Dennis O Christina R Sandy P Norman Lester T

I was so excited when I learned that we'll be having an eat up with the gang in Kapitolyo where there are variety of newly opened restos! Yay! I actually left the house 2hrs before the meet up since it’s a Saturday and traffic is expected to be worse. I let the grab driver use his waze! And after an hour, we were lost already. Thanks to Russel F for saving me! Lol. I had no idea how we gone through the Pagasa Street which was sooo far from Kapitolyo (Yung totoo! Nagtour na ako sa Pasig) I arrived 45mins late. Almost 3hrs travel time (Lesson: leave 4hrs before! Lol)
They served us their best sellers:
Nacho El Gigante – Grande (P475) Medio (P245) it has beef barbacoa, tomato salsa, jalapeños, cheese, shredded lettuce! I noticed that even if it’s no longer crunchy, it’s still very tasty after 30mins of photoshoot. I like this one! I can finish the whole thing if Im really hangrryyyy!
Elote – P245 – This my 3rd favorite! I really like the smoked paprika butter mixed with the grilled corn! It was perfectly made!!
Tittos Wings (P245) – This is also good but Im gonna like it better if it’s spicier! It has BBQ glaze with blue cheese crema
Pollo Pizzadilla (P325) - This is something special for me because it has Pimientos which I love! Haha! I tasted it first! It has grilled chicken sauce, onions and cheese
Paella de Carne – Medio (P445) good for 4-6pax; Grande (P745) good for 8-10pax – Since I love Paella, this is my 2nd fave!! Nabitin ako sa totoo lang! Lol. I love the combination of chorizo, grilled chicken inasal, lemon, French beans! Sobrang saaraaap! This is a must try! PAE-YUUUM!!
Sisig – (P155) – I'm so sad! I wasn’t able to take a photo of this! This is also a favorite though 3pcs of pork lang natikman ko. Haha! Hi Angela Marie C Fave mo to diba? 🏻
Tittos Salad (P275) – Let's try something healthy! Haha! This is good to balance all the food! It has smoked salmon, kani sticks, tomato, patacones and basil vinaigrette
18 hours Gaucho Steak (P550) - This is soooo good!! The 18 hours was worth the taste! It has onion crisps, hanger steak, side veggies and gravy. Sadly, konti lang natikman ko. Haha!
Costillitas (P425) - And finally, my top favorite! This is Cuban Baby back ribs served with house BBQ sauce and veggies. The ribs melted in my mouth! Lol but seriously, sobrang sarap! I love their bbq sauce recipe, I must say it's very special! Though we had a hard time slicing it, still, it's delicioso! 🏼
Tittos Ube Churros (P225) – Everyone loves churros and the special thing about this is the ube flavor! It has caramel sauce and some chocolate drizzle
Frozen Brazo de Mercedes (P195) – I like this one too!! But since it’s frozen, you really need to exert effort to eat it! Haha! Medyo natagalan kami ubusin, usually gone in 2 secs lang kami eh! 🤣
The resto owners aim to give a Latin-American feels to the customers. They want that it will serve as venue for family celebrations and gatherings! True enough, it gives a happy and party vibe at the same time. I love the interiors, they painted wall arts to give a gist of the resto theme! Even the restrooms are well-furnished!
Thanks to Winslow and the team for accommodating us! Will be back for sure! This will be added to my where-to-go-in-Kapitolyo list!
Thank you guys Christina R Norman Lester T Jayson J Dennis O Angela Marie C Russel F EJ B as always 🏻

One of the most famous food destinations in Metro Manila is Kapitolyo in Pasig. Number of restaurants in this area have started to balloon around early mid-2013 back in time when people are getting more curious intro trying out something new from the "usual". Pretty sure you've already heard of the most beloved Café Juanita, Ba Noi's, Silantro, or Thai Dara and might've visited it quite a few times like I do!
One of the places in Kapitolyo that's making a buzz for quite some time is Titto's! Known for serving sumptuous Latin American dishes; Titto's is the perfect place to celebrate with family, hangout with barkadas, or chill like a true blue tittos (and tittas) of manila!
The festive vibe of the place is almost contagious due to its colourful painted walls; but still very laidback with its chill ambiance that's perfect for every generation. The place is quite big and could accommodate nearly 80 people.
Team Kaladkarin was privileged to be invited for an eatup to finally try their specials. Some of us have already tried their food while most of us including me were first timers, so we're excited!!!
For the starters, we had..
Nacho el Gigante - still good even though it's already cold. We all know na sanay na kami sa malamig na because instagram photos are lifest! Gotta love the overwhelming serving of cheese and beef barbacoa on top!
Sisig Tacos - crispy sisig on top of the soft-shell tacos! Gotta love this because the sisig isn't too greasy! It's quite comparable to El Chupacabra's but both are "standouts" anyway!
Elote - Who doesn't love corn knowing that it has magnesium and potassium? This shredded corn masterpiece is definitely one of the must tries from their Starters. Char-grilled sweet corn with smoked paprika butter, some Tamarind spices, crumbled queso fresco and mayo lime. This is pretty good for real! Hindi ito "char" lang! #lastkonayun
After a great "warm-up", we're now ready for something more to come like..
Pollo Pizzadilla - Tortilla pizza with grilled chicken, pimientos, tomato sauce, cheese, and chimichurri topped with mixed greens. This is a sort of lovechild of pizza and quesadilla!
Paella de Carne - I'm no big fan of paella so I'm not expecting much from this, but was surprised that I reaaally loved it! Grilled chicken inasal, chorizo, sofrito, french beans on top of the quite spicy and flavorful rice! It's not as moist as the usual but not too dry for my taste.
18-hour Gaucho Steak - This is definitely one of the highlights! Hanger steak with onion crisps anf side veggies! Aside from the meat being so tender, the flavor was too glorious and deserves a spot on your table!
Costillitas - Cuban baby back ribs with house BBQ sauce. No questions needed if we're talking 'bout baby back ribs! You'd expect it to be fall-off-the-bone goodness aside from its There are a few places that's serving decent ribs, and Titto's could top my list due to its glorious flavor!!!
Titto's Wings - you can never go wrong with chicken wings! This is actually the last one I've tried because I'm expecting it to be like the usual spicy glazed chicken wings but boy, I was so wrong! This is just soooo good!
And for some sweet endings...
Titto's Ube Churros - Crunchy ube churros with white chocolate frosting caramel and chocolate drizzle. I love churros but I'm not picky. I love it because it's not too sweet for my taste though the taste of ube could've been improved somehow?
Frozen Brazo de Mercedez - Kailangan mo nang matibay na braso to cut this goodness! 🏼🏼 But it's good by the way! It would tickle a while before its "frozen state" would "cool down". So if you have plans of getting this, make sure to give the crew a heads up to serve it a little earlier?
Everything was so good! I couldn't actually think of anything that went wrong but maybe just some little remarks lang on the Ube churros. But nonetheless, it deserves a perfect 5!!! ️️️️️
Also, they're also hosting some events like Acoustic nights and Comedy nights. So if you're feeling stressed and you just wanna laugh out with Comedy Manila while munching some delicious sisig tacos, feel free to go here! Or if you're more into acoustic sound while finishing a whole pizzadilla in 5minutes, this is the perfect spot for you! You might wanna check out the schedule of these hosted events on their social media for the more accurate details!
Big thanks to Winslow and friends for inviting us over! Cheers, meu amigo!!!
Great times! Jayson J Angela Marie C EJ B Sandy P Norman Lester T Christina R Dennis O!

I saw this place being reviewed on TV so decided to give it a try for lunch. Happy We started with the nachos (sorry, I forgot to take a pic until it was all eaten up). An excellent start! The enchilada was unique with a creamy sauce and seafood flavor. The pork chuletas was awesome - flavorful, juicy and generous! The 18 Hours Gaucho steak was good. The Dulce de leche cheesecake was practically frozen.
Special mention to the side of chili beans! The best I have tried .

I have hopes of Filipino food to be the leading cuisine in other cities. Filipino food today is being embraced by internationally recognized chefs and hope we get more upscale Pinoy restaurants.
Anyway, what I just said don't have anything to do with Titto, a Latin themed restaurant and awesome interiors, plus has a seating capacity of more than 40. This opened last year and is the next go to for all foodies out there. Each dish is flavorful and ideal for sharing. With an average spend of P500 for one person, you'll have a good time.
What we ordered:
Different herbs and spices especially paprika combined to give you something to remember. Chicharron or crispy pata was an overkill and could've been disregarded. My favorite is mexican elote since I am a huge fan of street food, but don't think it will be appealing to everyone since it's basically grilled corn with loads of flavor, again paprika. I'll be back to try their unlimited margarita which is out for P399 soon.

This "playful Latin American" kitchen certainly romps away with gastronomic delight. Their servings are to share. Start off with Nacho el Gigante, but if you're less than 6, you can do with their "medio" servings. The steak burritos were pretty good as the meat was tender. Then if you're getting queasy with meat, try their Serena de Pescado which is corn-crusted salmon in lemon and caper butter sauce. You're entitled to one side dish, so I suggest you get the Papas Bravas which are crunchy marbled potatoes and chimichurri. Top it off with their frozen brazo de Mercedes. Skip the churassco beef salpicao. I just ate its mushrooms and crispy herbed onion, but the beef cubes are disappointing. Parking is ample, which is rare along the stretch of East Capitol Drive.

So I decided to bring L J & B to have dinner here.
1st the free valet parking is a savior .
Next , if you reserve online , you get an automatic P300 off as long as your bill is at least P1k .
The portions are large-definitely to share.
Nachos el Gigante - crunchy cheezy beefy tasty just the right amount of heat . te perfect appetizer and toppd with chopped green . ayun healthy na
Chuletas - 2 big grilled porkchops . grilled well. fatty juicy served with gravy. a little bland compared to the Filipino grilled chops matinated in vinegar but a great entree
Salpicao tender chunks of beef fried w mushroom buttons and with a good portion of crsped garlic . sasoned well . a little oily but worth a taste
tittos salad good for 2 with enerous bits of smoked salmon and surprising bits of caramelized banzna chips . a meal in itself
steak burrito served with sweet potato chips seemed small but turned out to be packed heavy and flavorful hot hehe
Enchalada creamy tasty but J who is very sensitive to heat found it too hot for her taste snd ate just a portion , hence the 3 stars . im gonna have this leftover for breakfast hehe
and for posting feedback you get s free dessert. a perfect pannacota cone with berry preserves . definitely id go back here just for this
we were full and happy we spent around P500 each but we had a lot of food on our table .
A good place for friends and family.
sad part. in our excitement we forgot to take pictures of the food . next time. promise

Looking for a Latino Bar when in Kapitolyo? Titto's Latin BBQ & Brew got you covered! The place itself is impressive! Huge, high ceiling, second floor to boot with lots of wall art! A map of Latin America, colorful wall paintings that speak festivities, feel good quotes and lots of natural light fill the place. You can't help but feel happy when you're here!! The ambiance itself is a winner!
Onto the food, they had us sample quite a spread! Their menu is extensive and can get a little overwhelming too.
| Nacho el Gigante: a loaded platter of Tortilla Chips topped with lots of beef, tomato salsa, jalapenos,shredded lettuce, chimichurri, cream and lots of cheese! It's the perfect starter!
| Dos Tipos Calamares: my favorite from the starters, do not skip this! More than just your usual calamares, the chewey swuid rings were covered in a light but crisp squid ink batter. It's then topped with sautéed calamares and served with a mayo based garlic dip! What a treat!
| Elote: this was okay. Lacking some strong spices, some liked this though.
| Titto's Wings: deep fried wings smothered with Chipotle glaze, nothing wow. Dip into the blue cheese crema to cut through the flavor of the glaze.
| For quesadilla, we had the Pollo Pizzadilla. Pretty round thing! It's an open faced Tortilla Pizza, with lots of cheese, grilled chicken chunks, chimichurri, tomatoes and pimientos topped with mixed greens. Looked so good but this was just okay.
| Ensalada: Titto's Salad! Mixed greens with patacones, kani, tomatoes, crumbled cheese in a balsamic peach-basil vinaigrette. This was good! Hints of salty and sweet, I liked this!
For the mains, we had the following:
| Lomo Saltado: tender strips of beef sirloin in a thick gravy like sauce reduction with potatoes, tomatoes and pimientos. This was tasty and best consumed with rice!
| Pollo Asado: the usual roasted chicken, done with a secret marinade, served with mango salsa and chimichurri. This was good but not wow.
| Cordero a la Parilla: grilled lamb shoulders smothered with gravy and served with chimichurri, this was a little tough.
| 18 Hours Gaucho Steak: my fave among the mains served, the tender cuts of Hanger Steak were well seasoned and tasty!
| Paella: Carne and Negra!
> Their Paella de Carne was loaded with chicken and chorizo, green peas and french beans. I found this just okay, needing some strong chicken flavor. Maybe more chicken stock would make it better?
> Arroz Negra was loaded with seafood. Squid ink rice topped with squid rings, prawns, mussels and tinapa. Better than the carne version for me.
Then for dessert, we had the following:
| Dulce de Leche Cheesecake: believe me when I say that this is one of the best Dulce de Leche Cheesecake in town! A thick slice of frozen cheesecake topped generously with dulce de leche, cornflakes, chocolate sauce and strawberry puree. So good! Happy happy dance!
| Tittos Ube Churros: this was just okay. The Churros were dry, IMO. I would love a more distinct ube flavor!
| Frozen Brazo de Mercedes: another good dessert! Buttered graham crust x vanilla ice cream x custard x meringue! Plated with some crushed Oreos, fresh strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream - each spoonful was a delight!
They also served an assortment of tacos which I wasn't able to try.

One of reasons why I love long weekends (aside from not working) is that everyone is out of town, meaning there's no traffic in the city! Taking advantage of this fruitful event, we ventured out to Kapitolyo to try Titto's. It only took half an hour from the coastal area to Kapitolyo. Yay!
For starters, we went for their signature
NACHO EL GIGANTE [P245 M • P475 L] ️️️️
Tortilla chips • Beef barbacoa • Pico de Gallo • Jalapeños • Shredded lettuce • Trio of cheese • Chimichuri • Mexican crema
What makes Titto's Nachos different from everybody else is that they do not use ground beef. Instead, they use shredded beef belly! The Jalapeño added a nice kick to the whole dish.
For our main dishes, we had:
BEEF BARBACOA | [P155] ️️️️️
Slow-cooked beef belly • Black tortilla • Chimichuri • Pico de Gallo • Pickled onion • Slaw • Tortilla chips
This might be the best taco I've had. I'm not even kidding. I didn't believe in love at first bite but now I do. It's really really good. The beef was really tender and the flavors were spot on. Highly recommended!
18 HOURS GAUCHO HANGER STEAK [P550] ️️️️
Hanger steak • Side veggies • Crispy onion chimichuri • Gravy • Your choice of one side dish
Flavors were great. The chimichuri gave a refreshing taste to the meat dish. However, even at medium rare, I find it a bit chewy and exhausting to eat. But my friend didn't feel the same way tho.
CHORIZO MAC & CHEESE [P55] ️️️️️
The steak comes with your choice of side dish and I'd recommend their mac n cheese. It's cheesy and creamy. Yum!
FROZEN BRAZO DE MERCEDES [P195] ️️️️
Buttered grahams • custard • meringue • vanilla ice cream • crushed oreo • whipping cream • blueberry • strawberry slices
I'm a sucker for frozen brazo. Titto's version is good but Karen's Kitchen still makes the best ones. Do yourself a favor and skip the whip cream. It's bland and too dense.
General comment on the food: it's served lukewarm. That bothered me a bit since it took a while for the food to come out. Weird.
Service was quite slow and the waitress kept bumping into me (while I was seated and eating). I'm not sure if it was intentional but it started to irritate me when she bumped me the third time. I'm like, "Really? What's your problem?" But I tried to be nice just ignored it.
But overall, it was a great visit. I'd come back next time just for their tacos

Brought the parentals to this place so they could appreciate and understand what Millennials like.
Compared to all Kapitolyo restaurants, parking was a breeze. Having valet service will really pull customers in, especially in such a busy street as Kapitolyo.
The place was bright and colorful. I really love the wall paintings. The service though, was so-so. Some servers were friendly, while the others were kinda masungit when we were asking for our sauces to be refilled.
We ordered a lot! Unfortunately, I just found the dishes from not good to mediocre.
Arroz Negra (495 PHP) - this was the dish we liked the most. You could really taste the squid ink in the rice, and there were a lot of seafood. There wasn't any soccarat (crispy, burnt rice on the edges), though.
Costillitas (310 PHP) - Cuban Baby Back Ribs. Too sweet for my liking, only my sister liked it.
18 Hours Gaucho Steak (480 PHP) - Enticing name, but I don't recommend this at all. It was tough, bland and chewy.
Papas Bravas - Marbled Potatoes. It was just okay. The parmesan cheese was not distributed well, a lot was at the bottom of the serving bowl. We got two of these as sides for our steak and ribs.
Tittos Wings (245 PHP) - Again, it was too sweet. I liked the Blue Cheese Creama sauce though.
Salted Egg Shrimp Tacos (145 PHP) - This was just so-so. I only got a hint of the Salted Egg flavor.
Not sure if I would want to come back, but I've heard the Kare Kare Burrito was good.

Slow service. Bad service
The quesadilla said mixed greens and it comes out with one green as seen in the photo. Then when asked about the mixed greens the waiter said thats all they serve one GREEN.
Even overheard the waiter say the puro reklamo... hmmm don't advertise something if you dont plan to give it and then say the customer keeps complaining. Wth.
Also, the unlimited tacos come out so slow

Yes i'm back since our class mate from the States arrived here and i just have to bring her here to meet our chef classmate. Yes. More food to try!
nacho el gigante @315php
Its serving is big, crispy corn crisps with warm melted cheese, tomatoes, jalapeños, chimichurri, and really tender beef chunks. I like the combination of the chimichurri and jalapeño.
18 hour gaucho steak @480php
It's the hanger steak-- suvéed 18 hours so it's really tender. We ask if we can have it rare, but too bad it's been cooked 18 hours already so what we can have is medium well nalang. We took time taking pictures of it and it went cold--the thing is it's still tender. The gravy here is peppery which i like better than the cordero a la parilla's salty gravy. It's farnished by the grilled and blanched veggies and garlic crisps.
paella de carne @320php
Chicken and chorizo tastes really latin. The correctly spiced paella was good, more on the salty side taste. The medio size order was good for 4! Super sulit. I actually like its texture waay more than cocina peruvia's
I dont really recommend this as sides. Kulang sa lasa. Too bad the papas fritas--all of their sides were out of stock. You can ask for ketchup for the dip. They offer the three dips also (sour cream, cilantro and houtsauce--but maybe for an extra charge) but ketchup will do, really.
Please please please order this for dessert. It's like ice cream cheesecake!! I like the cornflakes with cocosugar--sort of-- on to of the cheesecake!!
Still, service needs more improvement. Servers are a bit clumsy and a little unhygienic (dirty hands) lol. Lest they were super courteous naman.

Just recently, this newly opened southern cuisine restaurant went operational from 11am-11pm. The founders of this restaurant were mainly best of friends ever since their high school days and they were all guys-- that explains very well why they chose the name for the place.
If you're gonna visit the place, you would say that everything's planned and well thought of. The tables and chairs are all styled with woodwork design, there were of course a couple of brown colored cushioned seats. I went here around 12pm and it was just the right time to appreciate the place. I think the peak hour is dinner time.
Parking was just breezy for me. I spotted the front yard parking where there are about 4 cars can park--i would not want to park at their side yard because parking there would be one car after the other--not really advisable especially when you are dining alone-- would nOt want to be disturbed in the middle of your dining experience.
There's a separate comfort room at the ground floor and a common CR at the second floor. I opted to stay at the ground floor floor. I was surprised to see it one of its staff using the CR to do his shaving.
The ambience is hip latin. I sat where good lighting was. I was trying to avoid spots where there's no adequate lighting. Their menu (considering it's new) was clean and prepared well. They serve from appetizers, soups, to desserts. Before hand i was given the menu for preview and it was between the fish and lamb to choose from.
cordero a la parilla @395php
--since this protein is not commonly served at restaurants. I was mazed to see how big it is. I was just thinking if riblets. The server forgot to ask me its doneness, it's a good thing i called their attention just right before firing the lamb.
I asked medium rare. Amazed that it was served to me in 15 minutes, but it was a little rare. The correct doneness was only at the rib shaft part. Anyway, i still ate it and like it. It's served with gravy, blanched vegetables (carrots, butter gourd, and string beans) and grilled veggies (cherry tomatoes, garlic, and shallots). The gravy was salty. I actually prefer mint paste to go with my lamb.
chorizo mac and cheese
The order cones with a free side-- this is the side that i would recommend. It's smoky because of the chorizos and got thick cheese in it. It is mildly spiced as well.
Ube churros @210php
Upon previewing the menu, this postre caught my attention and did not bother to look at anything else. This is freshly done as well, but throw away the idea that's gonna look purple outside, because as we all know, churros is being fried and the purple batter turned into brown--nonetheless it's purple inside--very mushy and stuffed. It does not taste Ibe that much, it's overpowered by the caramel and chocolate syrups. It's 7-piece per serving so it's good to share.
I did go to the second floor to find more seats and an al fresco area! It's a little funny to see an office area on the second floor as well. I like the are where you can eat as a group. Oh, there's no wifi. Maybe that's one thing lacking in this place. This is also, since the name implies, a good hangout for chillout sessions. They offer cervesas like brew kettle, negra, smb's and corona.
