Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina Review


This is my first Restaurant Blog, so it might not be what you expect. Buuuut I’m gonna try making a nice review about the restaurant we just ate in today. Please enjoy 🙂




Me and my family in Silantro

So today, me and my family decided to have our lunch in Silantro. It’s located in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. When we got there, surprisingly, it was fully booked! And more people are even coming in to eat. The place is not fancy looking, it even looks small. But no doubt, people go there to eat 🙂

Ok, so here’s what we ordered:

Beef Nachos – P180

It’s a great appetizer! The sauces are great too. I just don’t know what they are. (But maybe you do). It’s also great for the whole group to share. We’re 5 in the family and it’s just right.

Silantros Quesadillas – P160


Silantros Quesadillas

This is one of my favorites. I’m not sure if the sauces are also for the fries, but the white sauce matches them. Anyways, that cheesy thingy (I guess they’re the Quesadillas?) is chicken and it tastes super yummy. It tastes like lasagna/baked mac, but tastier in its own way. Anyways, this or the next one is my favorite. ❤

Silantro’s Porkribs – P290


Silantro’s Porkribs

Yep, as I said, either these Porkribs or the previous one is my favorite. Well, I guess coz its porkribs, they’re always tasty haha. And this one is tasty too! We had this dish as our main course with the Paella below. But now that I think about it, it’s tasty but not anything that struck me as something I would remember from this restaurant. So fine, I’ll just put it as my second favorite, next to the Quesadillas which is something I have never had before. But again, these Porkribs are tasty ❤

Silantro’s Paella Pajit – P250


Silantro’s Paella Pajit

Hmmm, well it looks tasty. Presentation is lovely. It has a lot of various ingredients around it that it looks really appetizing. But, I’m going to put this dish as my least favorite. I’m not sure if I’m just not used to the taste of Mexican dishes, but it didn’t work for me. It was had a lot of taste, that I think it’s too much for me. Like, I tried to eat three crumbs of rice just to check how “tasty” it is? It did have too much taste. It had a lot of sauce. But again, maybe I’m just not used to Mexican dishes ^_^”

Pitcher Iced Tea – P200


Pitcher Iced Tea

It’s delicious. It’s not super strong. I like how it tastes. The price is shocking though. It’s more expensive than the other meals that we ordered lol. If you can’t afford the pitcher, you can always go for softdrink in can. They have Pepsi there for P40 :))

Overall, I’d rate the restaurant…


It’s nice but it’s not that memorable. It’s delicious and accommodating, but it could use some improvements (maybe with the size of the restaurant also). I’d eat there again, but that is if anyone invites me there. For an average girl like me, the quantity of the meals is kinda pricey though. I guess they’re for someone richer than me. lol

Thanks for reading!
