For some reason, I thought this dining place will cost me an arm and a leg. What a pleasant surprise to find a well-curated menu with such affordable prices! Must be the location (where the former Embassy Bar was), as well as the simple yet elegant ambience pervading in this resto.
Chef Fernando knows what hits the spot just browsing through the menu. We promptly ordered 3 appetizers while deciding on our main dish.
We've tried Cibo's Spinach Dip but Aracama's Malunggay & Mozzarella Dip is even better. As for the Lumpia Sisig and Salpicao, they're so good I wanted to pair them with garlic rice!
For our main dish, we had Kare Kare where the pechay leaves were served like rolls with stringbeans and banana buds stuffed inside. Clever! And the sigarilyas cooked in coconut milk was spiced just right.
Of course, we likewise ordered dessert. Forgot what it's called but they look like bread balls that come with a can of condensada much like what grannies snacked on!
So, don't wait. Go and grab a table in Aracama now and savor home-cooked Pinoy/Ilonggo cuisine. Your balikbayans would love it here. Find it at 26th Street corner Fifth Avenue at The Fort, Taguig.
