About 19 East
19 East first started in 2003 as an alfresco dining-themed restaurant that evolves into an entertainment venue since manila’s music artists are performing in their place. Owned by Wowee Posadas which also attributes to proper acoustic. Since the owner observed how other artist music joints lacked quality he applied his knowledge to do great sound quality in his restaurant.
19 East music has a crisp sound allowing audiences and performers to enjoy the music, because of the great sound famous artists like true faith, urban dub, freestyle, and Up dharma down became regular in performing. Owners used to invite those artists that they admired to perform in their restaurant whether it’s RnB, pop, soul, or jazz.
Customers get to enjoy delicious food while listening to the performances of the artist, they served Filipino dishes that are not only good with rice but also great as beer matches.
19 East Menu Best Seller
We tried all of the items that their crew recommended to us since these items are their best sellers. Here on the list of items is their most popular menu that is impossible to ignore since the platting and taste are really good.
Nachos – An item that is quite popular these days is nachos, it’s great if you’re just chilling or having a chit-chat with friends. The 19 East menu nachos are as good as it sounds. The taste is not too salty since the nachos themselves are already flavored, saucy creamy, and has a little kick while munching on it, it’s quite instagramable too.
Crispy Pata – One of the most popular among us Filipinos is this crispy pata. 19 east version of a crispy pata is tender and crispy but not dry. Their crispy pata is boiled with herbs and spices for hours before finally frying. They serve it with sauce which is I think a mixture of soy sauce-based and other flavoring agents. To be fair their crispy pata is already good with or without sauce.
Pork Sisig – Who doesn’t know this dish? It can pass as the Philippines’ national dish in my personal opinion. 19 East version of pork sisig is crispy and delicious, has a little kick because of the green chilis, and has a very distinctive flavor that only sisig has. On their sisig I’m not quite sure if they use chicken liver or pigs brain but whatever it is it’s delicious.
Dynamite – This is just like lumpia with a twist, their dynamite version is cheesy and very flavorful. Great for those who love spicy food and also great with beer or just pica pica.
Baked Mussels – One of my favorites that we order is their baked mussels. It’s creamy, cheesy, and very delicious. Their mussels are big compared to other baked mussels that I already tried. For seafood lovers, you have to try this 19 East menu.
Spaghetti in Aligue Sauce – Made with pasta tossed in a creamy sauce of crab aligue. This dish is really good very delicious it could be your new favorite if we’re talking about pasta dishes. With a little tanginess from lemon juice, this pasta dish is a masterpiece.
