Manila Classico: The Aristocrat Restaurant in Manila, Philippines

There was a restaurant along Roxas Boulevard in the Malate district of Manila that always caught my attention. I first saw it as we traveled from the airport to our hotel in Ermita. Then it always gets me curious every time we commute from the Bayview Park Hotel to the Mall of Asia or elsewhere we went in Metro Manila. This restaurant was the Aristocrat Restaurant, a pre-WWII restaurant that is open 24 hours.

On 30 January 2016, we were supposed to go with our Tita Babam to Maginhawa Street in Quezon City. However, they got stuck in heavy traffic for three (3) hours on the way to our hotel. When they got to us, they decided against the original plan and just hosted us at the Aristocrat Restaurant.

Aristocrat Restaurant in Manila, Philippines

The Aristocrat Restaurant is located right beside Plaza Sulayman (or Plaza Soliman) in the Malate district of the capital city of the Philippines, is just a stone's throw away from the Malate Church, and along Roxas Boulevard fronting Manila Bay. This was not far from the Bayview Park Hotel where we were staying.

Paksiw na Tiyan ng Bangus 

I ordered the paksiw na tiyan ng bangus which was a generous serving of milkfish belly poached in vinegar broth with ampalaya (bitter gourd) and eggplants. Tita Babam noticed how popular this dish was with the other patrons. It should be. I am usually not a fan of paksiw na bangus or ampalaya, but this one was delicious and I ate both the milkfish belly and the vegetables.

Pork and Chicken Barbecue 

Both the pork and chicken barbecue at Aristocrat Restaurant is a good one. While it took a while to serve our orders, it was because they did not rush the preparation. The meat was evenly cooked and not charred yet was still very juicy. This must have been cooked in slow fire making sure that the meat was cooked thoroughly on both sides. The portions were also surprisingly big.
