Pelagio Bar & Restaurant Mexican Cuisine with a Filipino twist

When we say Mexican food it’s all about tacos, nachos and quesadillas which is I’m a huge fan especially if everything is loaded with cheese. What if this time,  with a Filipino twist? Imagine your burritos loaded with chicken adobo, pork sisig or even bistek. Sounds interesting right? Well, I must say it’s also very satisfying. We had our recent foodtrip at Pelagio (pronounced as Pelayo) Bar and Restaurant, located at the Water Garden part of Festival Mall in Alabang.

An Al-fresco set up dining, mexican style with big hats and vibrant colors. The Palochina furnitures added a homey feels to this kiosk-type bar and resto. They may looked a little bit small for now which can only accommodate 20 pax in one sitting.

Sharing basket (P345.00) is good for two to three persons. A combination of  mini cheese quesadilla, chicharrones (chicken skin) and corn tortilla chips. It comes with guacamole and salted egg dip. I must warn you  the chicharrones from Pelagio is mind blowing. Forget about cholesterol, you’ll get happy thoughts afterwards haha!  Salted egg is  now becoming an instant craze, don’t miss this one with your chips.

I felt the aroma of grilled liempo (P300.00good for sharing) was calling me while it was being prepared. The smoky-sweet taste of the pork will let you have an extra cup of rice (P25.00).

Quesadilla (P190.00) freshly made flour tortilla folded with cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, jalapeño and chicken adobo filling plus salsa.  Chicken strips are oozing with goodness plus the melted cheese. Here at Pelagio, you have three choices of salsa which are all homemade recipe. Salsa Pineapple and Mango (sweet and sour) , Salsa Pimiento (medium spicy) and  Salsa Roja (very spicy).

The generous Pork Sisig filling in the Burrito (P190.00) blends perfectly with the rice, lettuce, black beans and sour cream. Every bite is distinctively unique. I can’t wait to try it with Chicken Adobo next time.

Calamansi honey, Horchata and Watermelon mint are the choices for Pelagio’s Agua Frescas (P75.00) or non-alcoholic drinks.

Among the three, I got hooked with Horchata which is made from rice milk and cinnamon sticks. Creamy, sweet  and refreshing. I also tried hubby’s drink the watermelon mint  perfect to beat the summer heat because of its cooling effect.

What I love about Pelagio even the tortilla chips for  Nachos (P185.00)  are freshly fried by the chef itself, you can guarantee that it’s crunchy and tasty.  Plus the fact that it’s loaded with cheese, black beans, big chunks of jalapeño, pico de gallo and sour cream. This one we tried it with beef plus the Salsa Pineapple and Mango which balances everything.

Pelagio is not just about good food, they also have cocktails. Because it’s weekend, I have an excuse to try the Margarita (P155.00), instead of using lime they replaced it with calamansi for a more pinoy twist drink served in a big glass. I find it too big so i have to share it with hubby.
