Great Honey Chicken!!!
Other than the Filipino Barbeque Chicken tradition at "Aristocrat's Restaurant" is the fact that the restaurant is actually part of a chain of restaurants in the Metro Manila area which includes the more Spanish and East Asian inspired Filipino fare at "Alex' the III Restaurant."
So one dish that you should try no matter which chain you go to is also not a barbeque dish--it's their HONEY CHICKEN! It's a delicious fried chicken with actually very little grease and very tender meat. Mmmm...kids and adults alike love it! I personally really love it as well and think of it as soul food:) [more]
Sweets at the Bakery Next Door!
Another tradition is to head to the bakery of sweet goodies that is right beside the Aristocrat Restaurant. After a meal, it would be often the kids who would drag their family and parents in particular to buy them sweet desserts from the bakery next door.
There's a lot of things to turn your head. I personally recommend the boat tarts which are usually filled with meringue, nuts and encased in a buttery short-bread tart and wrapped in colorful see-through paper! Definitely anyone who receives these colorful gifts will definitely love the surprise inside! The chocolate cake is also simple, gooey, chocolately and not-too-sweet--just perfect! [more]
Barbeque Tradition in Manila
Close to the bay area of Manila City, you'll find a family restaurant named Aristocrat's there as well as lots of patrons every day of the week.
The great thing about this restaurant is its Barbeque--known across the place for its special "java" dipping sauce, grilled chicken or pork, "atsara" or pickled vegetables and of course its famed saffron-colored rice.
When we eat there, we always have a table full of this for each person. And for the fair prices, the servings are quite hefty! Yummy! [more]
