Tiago: Progressive Filipino Cuisine

Since I entered my day time job, I don't get to spend too much time with my blog friends anymore. I badly miss the days when we see each other almost everyday, attending back to back (to back to back to back...) events, long car rides around the Metro and all other crazy things we do together. #clingyforever Finally got reunited with them last October 5 (after my month-long hiatus) over dinner at Tiago!

Aside from a restaurant review, this dinner was also intended for a surprise celebration for our dearest Paul. :) Tiago's not only a perfect spot for romantic dates, but also for chill nights with family or friends.

Tiago's located at Sct. Fuentebella along Tomas Morato in Quezon City. This restaurant was named after the owners' firstborn child named Santiago, and they offer traditional Filipino dishes with unique twists.

Fortunately, the multi-awarded chef Kenneth Villaluz (who handles and co-owns Tiago) was present during our stay and he made us experience and taste their progressive cuisines. 

Inihaw na Tilapia Roll

First appetizer that they served us was Inihaw na Tilapia Roll and it was surprisingly so so so good! :)

Tokwa't Baboy (using Pig Ears and Breaded Tofu)

Bistek Pancit

Pinausukang Chicken and Pork

My favorite from all the main dishes we had! ♥

Stuffed Pechay

Inside the Stuffed Pechay were pork and shrimps cooked in coconut cream. I'm pretty sure my Dad would love this! :)

Tinapa Rice

Tried this, too, even if I (honestly) don't eat Tinapa and it actually tasted nice! I liked it!

Fried Suman

Leche Flan

This dessert's never absent in any Filipino feasts or celebrations! Hey, who doesn't love leche flan?!

You'll appreciate Filipino food even more when you dine at Tiago. Aside from their superb and unexpected food offerings, the restaurant interiors are all so sleek, rustic, hip and meaningful. :)

Now time to reveal our little surprise for Paul!!

You're still our winner, Paul, and we're very very proud of you!! :)

Looking at these photos made me miss you guys (and the rest of our blogkada) even more!! Hope I could get to spend more time with you, just like the old times! :')

Thank you so much to Tiago for having us!
