It took us a long time before we decided to go with Silantro. It’s the curse of having so many options. One wants this place while another says the other. It was hard to reach a consensus. Anyway, Silantro won.
I ordered the Completo (PHP110) again with three choices of meat. This time, I went with beef, lengua and oxtail. We also ordered nachos (PHP160) and J treated us Papi’s Fritas (PHP130). E and I also shared Silantro’s Paella Fajita Mix (PHP250).
First served was the Papi’s Fritas which reminded me of Animal Fries of In-N-Out.
It was pretty tasty and filling. One order is great for sharing for 4-6 people.
The nachos were good too! The crispy chips were drowning in cheese! It was LOVE. (Though a messy kind of love.)
Next served was my soft tacos which was oozing with flavors. The bits of beef, lengua and oxtail were soft and savory. The shredded/chopped vegetables added crunch to the dish. There was a time though where the flavors were too overpowering and that’s why I started to munch on the…
Silantro Paella Fajita Mix.
The serving of this dish is quite small and could only be good for one unless you ordered other dishes. The mussels were not as fresh but still good enough. The paella itself was okay though of course, it was not at par with Calderon or ArroZeria. Then again, with PHP250, it wasn’t bad at all.
Too bad they were out of mojitos. I liked the mojitos of Silantro.
