When in Manila and craving for rich tasting Filipino dishes and succulent tenderlicious barbecues, there is really only 1 trusted name to remember – The Aristocrat Restaurant!

With over 75 years in the restaurant industry, The Aristocrat Restaurant is no doubt considered as an icon when it comes to world class Filipino cuisine and one of the most notable names in our culinary culture.

 

“Sa Linggo, kakain tayo sa Aristocrat!” (“This Sunday, we’ll eat at Aristocrat!”) – I can still vividly remember how my titos and titas would say this when I was a kid. When I was young, it was instilled in me that The Aristocrat is THE PLACE TO BE! The place for celebrations and family feastings. Eating at The Aristocrat would be a form of reward for having good grades, winning a medal in school or any important milestone in life. The Aristocrat has always been every food loving Filipino family’s choice when it comes to bonding through eating escapades… a brand that we Filipinos have learned to love. And over the years, the Reyes family was able to maintain its reputable image and high standard.

 

By the way, before I continue, it really pays to know the story behind The Aristocrat Restaurant. I believe every Filipino citizen should know about the family behind The Aristocrat Restaurant and their humble beginnings. Seriously, their story should be in our history books because of the inspiration and values we can learn from them. As a dedicated food blogger, I intend to educate my readers and challenge them to rediscover our very own culinary treasures and the history of The Aristocrat Restaurant is definitely worth knowing!

The Aristocrat Restaurant is famous for a lot of dishes especially when it comes to barbecues! Every Aristocrat fanatic is surely familiar with their deliriously delicious barbecues partnered with their signature Java rice and “atsara”! If you’re a first timer, you may opt to try one of these….. or better yet, ALL OF THEM!

Lumpiang Shanghai
– This is actually my first time to enjoy meat rolls that are generously stuffed compared with others which have super thick wrapper with very less filling. Highly recommended!

Torta delos Reyes
– this mind blowing dessert definitely deserves a standing ovation. For me it’s Sans Rival kicked a notch higher!

Meet Sir James Legaspi, their very accommodating Restaurant Manager who gladly entertained our questions during our visit. Believe it or not, Sir James started out 10 years ago at The Aristocrat as a simple busboy and worked his way to the top through hard work and perseverance! His story is truly inspiring as well!
