Savor Filipino Cuisine

Note: This restaurant is already closed. 



This is a little overdue post since this visit happened on my birthday, which was last November. I always go to work on my birthday (then get a birthday leave some other day). This way, I could give a lunch treat to my friends and colleagues. :)

I kept my last birthday celebration quite simple so we went Pinoy with Savor Filipino Cuisine. I've been to the place before and I loved the taste and presentation of the dishes.




For appetizers, we had Sipa ni Owen (Php 189) and CowBoy Sisig (Php 199).

CowBoy Sisig

Sipa ni Owen is fried spring roll pouches filled with ground pork. I love how they made a simple dish beautifully presented. You must try this when you visit Savor.

CowBoy is a word play on "Cow" and "Baboy" as this dish is a mixture of beef and pork. It's delicious but a little oily for sisig, maybe from the beef.

We also had Gising-gising (Php 199) and one of their popular dishes, Sa Pula - Sa Puti! (Php 289).

Sa Pula - Sa Puti!

While Recipes by Cafe Metro uses Baguio beans for the Gising-gising, Savor uses Kangkong stalks with coconut cream, minced pork and shrimp. Though it's topped with green and red chili, I found the spiciness just right. Sa Pula - Sa Puti! is adobo served 2 ways: one is crispy flaked and the other slow braised in native vinegar and garlic. I personally like "Sa Pula" (the crispy flaked adobo) more.

I didn't miss on ordering Savor Kare-Kare (Php 429).

The last dish to arrive is my all-time favorite Filipino dish. Savor's version didn't disappoint, the serving is more than enough for our group. The meat is tender and the sauce has a nutty edge that I really liked.

We got Adobo Rice (Php 119) and Chorizo Rice (Php 119) to go with our dishes, though I also ordered a cup of Plain Rice for myself too.

Adobo Rice and Chorizo Rice are both good for 2 persons. Chorizo Rice has Cabanatuan Longganiza with the fried rice. Both are generously mixed with meat that you can just eat it alone.

Savor also serves desserts since we ate the birthday cake my friends gave me (Tiramisu by Mary Grace, thanks guys!).

Savor Filipino Cuisine offers delicious modern Filipino dishes at reasonable prices. I will definitely go back to try the other dishes.

  1. The food looks so delicious, I already missed eating Filipino foods. They are the best for me not like other South East Asian food that are too spicy.

  10. LOL! I love how they named their dishes! We don't usually dine at Filipino themed restaurants because we always thought we can prepare this at home, but I think this one is something to try ;)
