Ilustrado Menu Best Sellers
Here are some of their must-tries and best-sellers. These items are also the crowd’s favorite.
Lobster Bisque – Lobster Bisque is basically a highly seasoned soup with a creamy and smooth texture of French origin. This one taste really delicious and savory because of the lobster. This soup is also filling and best partnered with any bread. Their lobster bisque has a mildly sweet flavor since the lobster that they use in creating their lobster bisque is always fresh.
Baked Eggplant – Baked eggplant from Ilustrado restaurant is a very satisfying and at the same time healthy dish. It has a creamy eggplant then wrapped into a pastry wrapper baked and then topped with tomato sauce and pesto sauce. This one tastes really good and I couldn’t get enough of their baked eggplant, to be honest. No wonder their baked eggplant is one of the crowd’s favorites on their menu.
Bagnet – Who wouldn’t know this lovely Filipino dish? I’m sure just reading the name of it made you think how good is the bagnet right? I’m actually still drooling right now as I remember how good is their bagnet. Ilustrado’s version of bagnet is tender inside and crispy on the outside. It also has a KBL sauce which means kamatis, bagoong, and lasuna, or small as in relatively small onions that grow in the bagnet’s origin Ilocos region. The bagnet is perfect with rice or with anything that you want. The KBL sauce is also delicious and perfect with the bagnet.
Callos – Callos is an ox stripe stew that has chickpeas and chorizo on it. This menu of Ilustrado is really tasty because of the chorizo and ox tail flavor combined. The ox tail has that melt-on-your-mouth feel since it is really tender. The combinations of flavors are really good this is by far the best Callos that I ever tasted.
Lengua – Lengua is made with ox tongue and yes this is also delicious and definitely a classic. I’m actually a huge fan of lengua and Ilustrado’s version of lengue tastes really good. The lengua is tender and very flavorful, it is also served with shiitake mushroom sauce to complete the great experience. Ilustrado’s version of lengua is so good it could be your new classic favorite.
