X046 Filipino Heritage Bistro: The Spanish and Visayan Food Prestige

Makati, Philippines

Ever since I tried X046 Filipino Heritage Bistro, I've vowed to come back with the family.  Finally, the night came when we were craving for Filipino cuisine and near Makati so it was the perfect destination.

Walking in, I was excited.  My family who is hardly excited over Filipino food was a bit skeptic.

But, seeing the awards made them a bit enthusiastic.

The place reflects the authentic Filipino elegance.  I love every detail of its interiors from the chair to the lighting.

Lovebirds can opt to seat here.  But, no pair dined there that night cause we were all groupies that night.

Very nice plate mat right?

xo46 heritage bistro puto
Complimentary Puto with Aligue and Yema Dip
Once we were done ordering, we were served a plateful of  Complimentary Puto with Aligue and Yema Dip.  The puto has three flavors: ube, pandan and plain.  This is one of the best puto I've ever tried!  It was soft and moist.  The dip wasn't much but since it's free, I can't really complain.

Spanish Tapas
callos a la madrilena
Callos A La Madrilena (545 php)
The Callos A La Madrilena is stewed ox tripe and pork hock with chickpeas and chorizos.  A serving is good for 3-4 persons. It is one of our family favorite dishes.  The ox tripe and pork hock were so tender and the stew was so flavorful!  Everyone gave their approval as soon as they tasted this.

Kanin at Pansit
tinapa rice
Tinapa Rice (220 php)
I rarely praise rice dishes but this Tinapa Rice is really good!  Consider this as an option for your staple.

Family Style Dishes: Seafood
dumaguete express
Dumaguete Express (Mixed Seafood with Spicy Coconut Sauce) (245 php)
The Dumaguete Express is the best dish for that night.  It was our first time to try a dish liked this and it won't be the last!

Family Style Dishes: Meat & Poultry
adobong baka sa bawang
Adobong Baka sa Bawang (495 php)
As expected from XO46, they can make an ordinary dish like the Adobong Baka sa Bawang so extraordinary!  This is a heavenly garlicky, salty and savory dish.

ginataang langka
Ginataang Langka (Young Jackfruit Stewed in Coconut Creme & Seafood) (275 php)
Like the rest of the dishes, I also loved the Ginataang Langka.  In fact, I'll admit I ate about a half of this!

Mga Dulce
casava cake salted caramel
Casava Cake with Salted Caramel (145 php)
For dessert, my mom who loves kakanin (rice delicacies) ordered the Casava Cake with Salted CaramelI'm usually not to fond of Casava cakes but boy this was so good that even my brother who doesn't eat desserts loved it. I'd like to applaud the plating.

sapin sapin bahaghari
Sapin-Sapin Bahaghari (155 php)
The Sapin-Sapin Bahaghari is always feautured in magazines and blogs so we just had to check it out for ourselves.  It is served with honey wine and mantecado ice cream.  We've tried a lot of Sapin-sapin before but none of them offered an experience as astounding as this one.  The components just mesh wonderfully together.

halo halo
Halo-Halo (135 php)
Mom wanted to try their Guinomis but it was not available so the server suggested that we try their Halo-Halo instead.  We were so happy with it.  It is very tasty because of its bountiful ingredients. 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict

X046 Filipino Heritage Bistro is the best Filipino-Spanish restaurant in the Metro.  usual serving size is for 2 to 4 persons.  The price is a bit expensive but considering the quality, service and ambiance, I'd give you a complete go signal!
