Al Dente Ristorante Italiano
While Iloilo is more known for its local seafood, this longstanding restaurant in the iconic Sarabia Manor Hotel brings the flavours of Italy to the table instead.
Come in early so you will still have time to enjoy a bottle of wine or a warm cup of French-pressed brewed coffee while catching up with a companion. The grilled chicken Caesar salad is a great starter, with its appetising chicken strips, capers, and croutons. If you are trying to be good, opt for the walnut-crusted fish fillet with cauliflower purée. However, if you are game to load up on red meat, have the slow-cooked beef brisket— the braised bone-in flank is perfect with garlic rice. Cap the meal off with the rich buttercream sans rival— not an imperative but a delicious option.
