Silya't Sili

Note: As of January 14, 2013, Silya't Sili has closed the resto and is now an art gallery and furniture room. 

The PEx food club strikes again to try this art gallery/furniture shop/restaurant called Silya't Sili.

Silya't Sili is located in a semi-obscure White Plains area. It offers mainly traditional Filipino dishes that we always love. Though named as such, its dishes aren't really spicy, which got me relieved since I'm not into spicy food.

Since it's an art gallery, beautiful paintings are posted on every space available. One particular painting (the painting of a woman) caught my attention; we were told it costs around Php 160,000, much to my surprise.

True enough, there is an exhibit of beautiful chairs in the dining area, which are also for sale.

It was everyone's first time in the restaurant so we just fired away our orders. While waiting for others to arrive, I ordered Fried Spring Rolls (Php 65).

Fried Spring Rolls

Fried Spring Rolls are 6 pieces of a combination of pork, shrimp, mushroom, carrots, and vermicelli served with sweet chili sauce. I'm biased to spring rolls, so I was tempted to finish everything by myself.haha.

When everyone in our group arrived, we ordered the following:

We ordered Halaan Soup (Php 200).

Halaan Soup

I'm not into seafood but I liked the mild taste and a serving was enough for eight people.

We are always giddy whenever we see Sisig in the menu. We got the Sisig Campampangan (Php 210).

The sisig has the right amount of crunchiness with the number of chopped onions mixed in.

We also ordered Lechon Kawali (Php 180).

Lechon Kawali

The Lechon Kawali was good, but I wish it was served chopped so we wouldn't have problems getting our portions.

Of course, we also got Kare-kare (Php 285).


The kare-kare was good enough, the sauce has the right amount of thickness though I think the nutty taste was missing.

We also tried Silya't Sili Chicken (Php 180 for half; Php 350 for whole).

There was nothing special with the chicken though.

Overall, Silya't Sili is recommended for its affordable dishes and beautiful ambiance. It seems like we've visited a museum rather than a restaurant. The place is perfect for private functions as well.

If you want a place with a bit of exclusivity and creativity, Silya't Sili is the place for you.
