Nostalgia at The Aristocrat

Years have passed... generations have moved on, yet one tradition remains, The Aristocrat.

The Aristocrat, located along 432 San Andres St. cor. Roxas Blvd., Malate Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines is a landmark of its own.  It is now known to be one of the tourist spots in Manila, have you ever been to this branch?  This branch has gone though quite a lot of renovations, and maybe some of you or your parents may recall, it also was for a time closed during the early 90's I believe, as I was craving for Aristocrat food then and they were closed for some issue that I'm not really familiar with, the most important thing though is that it is now open and going strong, with more and more branches opening all over the Philippines.
 Chicken Honey... looks so crispy
 The Favorite and the most popular dish, The Chicken Barbeque
 Also in the menu, Pork Barbeque
 Crispy on the outside, meaty on the inside, Lumpiang Shanghai
To top it all off, The best Gulaman at Sago in town.

The Aristocrat is a living legacy of fine Filipino foods, that have survived through the years, it never fails to bring back good memories and it is always a delight to dine in.

Open 24 hours a day!!

BEWARE...The Best Lechon Kawali in town...

This time we trek through the side streets of Manila to find a gem among the vast array of restaurants all over the great metro, there are many places in Manila such as Chinatown, Malate, Pasay that offer lots of food choices... but here in Santa Cruz, Manila there is really one that caught my attention... and my taste bud's attention as well.

located along Remigio St. near 
corner Felix Huertas St., 
Sta, Cruz, Manila

Instead of the usual burger fastfood chains, try this place out and yes it is cheaper than you think and I assure you, you will be full with less than P80.00.  You may have at least once in your life stepped into a tapsilog chain... but I will guarantee you if you come by and taste what they have to offer here in CHADES, you will be back here again with any chance you get. This may be your typical tapsilogan, with a couple of food choices, but the taste, the aroma and the freshness of the food will surely tickle your taste buds and take you to wonderful gastronomical experience.

There are quite a lot in the selection of this 
Tagalog fast food:

* Chicken chops - Chiksilog (P52.00)
* Tocino             - Tosilog
* Bangus            - Bangusilog
* Longaniza        - Longsilog
* Hotdog            - Hotsilog
* Corned Beef    - C.Beefsilog (P38.00)
* Adobo            - Adobosilog
* Tilapia             - Tilapiasilog (P40.00)
* Tapa               - Tapsilog ( P38.00)
* Lechon Kawali - Lechon Rice (MY FAVORITE) (P52.00)

Now after all the intruduction on to my favorite the LECHON RICE.
Oh so fulfilling.... and unlimited Mang Tomas Lechon Sauce

So let's cut to the chase, I guess the pictures speak for themselves
My rating for CHADES LECHON RICE - out of 5 stars

Taste             - 5 stars (very crispy skin), yummy lechon sauce
Service          - 5 stars very fast service, order and food is ready in 5.
                        best of all served hot!!!
Ambiance      - 4 stars, it is a fastfood carinderia....clean, very clean
Price             - 5 stars!! all out.... you can have a complete meal for less than 80.00, that is extra rice included a bottle of soda, or juice. You'll come out happy, I guarantee it!!!

And one more thing you can buy a chunk of that lovely lechon kawali for take out.... they weigh it and sold around 200 up.... depends on the grams... enjoy it at home - PULUTAN. Yum!!

I came back the next day I had a taste of this exceptional tapsilog place, I'm sure you'll be back for more too, by the way don't expect to have a seat at once... as the place gets really packed even during the wee hours of the morning!!  ENJOY!!!
