UP Town Center has already marked its name as a foodie destination in Quezon City. With a wide variety of food choices, you will never ran out of options to choose from. Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina is one of the most popular restaurants in UP Town Center that will truly melt your heart away.
My wife and I agreed to have lunch at Silantro last Sunday after attending the mass at St. Peter’s Parish Church. Silantro has been our favorite restaurant to go to whenever we crave for some good Mexican grub.
The restaurant’s interior has that “Mexican Fiesta” feel. I love the rusty, macho and rugged look of their interior design inspired by the show “Lucha Underground”.
Silantro’s Beef Nachos were exceptionally good. Crispy tortilla chips with generous beef, melted cheese and sweet tomato salsa perfectly blends together. I couldn’t control myself from eating it! I also love their unlimited sauces that goes well with all their dishes. The three sauces came with the nachos – salsa verde, yogurt and chili sauce. The sauce makes the flavor even more intense and upped.
Soft and warm tortilla exploding with loads of tender and succulent beef pieces with addition of cheesy goodness delivering a sumptuous and savory delight.
Bearing the word “calliente” which means hot and fiery, these bright red goodies will indeed test your spiciness threshold. You can request them to tone down the spiciness level to make it mild or have it non-spicy so that the kids can enjoy it too.
Overall, the dining experience was memorable. The service was excellent. Serving size is definitely for sharing here. The food was well worth the price.
