Soleras – authentic, exotic Filipino dishes

In this pandemic, it’s amazing that there are still new restaurants emerging. It is still evident that food is indeed one that people will always support no matter what.

We tried dining in at Soleras – the newest restaurant in Banawe, Quezon City that offers authentic-exotic food. I felt safe during my time here. They have digital thermometer to scan your temperature upon entering, and alcohol to ensure everyone’s disinfected.  They made sure that seats are apart and well distanced as well. If you’re the type of person who doesn’t feel safe dining-out, you can opt to have your food delivered. They’re now trying to put up their menu on delivery apps available.

As for me, I sometimes go out and dine-in at my favorite restaurant as this option is convenient during my time when I’m usually out and about. With that, I make sure that I practice safety precautions.

This restaurant is also a place where you can buy power tools, machines, and other construction needs. I love their tables which is made from Solar panels, this is also where the name originated. It’s a play with word from Solar to Soleras. I also liked the dried flowers and leaves placed on every table as centerpiece.

As I’ve mentioned, Soleras offers exotic food and we tried some of their best bet. 

Angus Pares (Php145) – Since Angus, it was very tender. This is one of the best I’ve had in years and what I love about this is that it doesn’t have that overpowering star anis flavor. Also, such a steal for only Php145. This includes garlic rice already served in a cute rice pot.

Espesyal na Bulalong Lugaw (Php280) – Loaded with quail eggs, crispy tofu, innards of pigs and chicken. It includes bone marrow as well. What more can you ask for?

Keso Dinakdakan (Php290) – This is my first time to try Dinakdakan with Cheese and I absolutely think this is so clever. It blended so well.

Pancit Sampler (Php499 good for 5-8 people) – It has 3 different toppings such as Dinakdakan, Bicol Express and Pares. Again, Beef Pares dominated this round. But Bicol Express did not disappoint as well as it has that tad spicy kick and creamy sauce.

Pritong Itik (Php345 for medium size) – crispy skin and tender meat. The flavor penetrates thoroughly.

For dessert, we had Ginumis (Php185) . This is the same with Halo-halo but with few ingredients and has fresh coconut milk instead. Also good but I find the fresh coconut milk too flavorful.

I made a short video during my visit. Please check it out and if you can subscribe as well. 🙂
