Café Ilang-Ilang

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - INTERNATIONAL -


A clas­sic in the Philippine din­ing scene, the his­toric Manila Ho­tel's Café Ilang-Ilang is known for old-time favourites.


It is one of the orig­i­nal restau­rants where the crêpes sa­mu­rai craze be­gan decades ago. Or­der the crêpes the same time as your mains since the crêpes are only cooked upon or­der­ing and the kitchen re­quires 45 min­utes prepa­ra­tion. The club sand­wich wows, and it is lit­er­ally hid­den in­side a gen­er­ous-sized rye bread bowl. Liver pâté is pro­vided, to be en­joyed with the bread “wrap­per.” Pre­sen­ta­tion aside, all the in­gre­di­ents of the sand­wich are cooked to per­fec­tion. Brave traf­fic for the well-known kare-kare (an ox-tail and tripe peanut stew made of freshly ground peanuts, which is served with na­tive veg­eta­bles) and then in­dulge in crispy pata (per­fectly crisp, fried pork knuck­les).
