Tittos has been around for a while. I've been curious about it and I have also heard a lot of good reviews about the restaurant, but I never got the chance to visit it until last December. I know they say to never judge a book by its cover but my initial judgement of a restaurant is usually based on how it is presented. My logic behind this is that if they took time to make a place beautiful, they probably also took the same amount of effort on their food. Having said that, the interior of Titto's is pretty. Just like their food, the place looks like a modern hippie Mexican restaurant with its industrial looking cement walls and floor, wooden furniture and colorful tiles and decors.
The photo above shows my favorite spot. I loved the fake colorful windows. It brings so much character to your photo. :)
As for the food, my amigas and I were able to try the following:
Nachos El Gigante
This has become one of my instant favorites. It tastes light and flavorful so you wouldn't notice that you've already been eating a lot. Hindi siya nakakasawa. I was still munching on it even after all the other dishes were served.
La Lucha Salad
Veggie salad with corn, oyster mushroom and quinoa with vinaigrette.
I have never been a fan of vinaigrette because I don't like sour food. I was hesitant to try it at first because of that reason but I tried it anyway and it wasn't bad at all. It had the perfect blend of sourness and sweetness, and I like the added crunch of the oyster mushroom to give the salad a little texture.
Tapas De Chifa
Parmesan cheese bread with truffle and smoked salmon cheese filling.
I am no foodie so I don't know how to properly describe it, but it tasted uniquely good. It's one of the dishes that I saved for last, and you know what that means right? :)
Beef Barbacoa Tacos
The beef filling was not exceptional but it's good and tender.
I had a little problem with the black taco shell because it was a bit paste-y, but I think it's something they're gonna work on. :)
This one is good and everyone agreed. It was sweet, tangy and crunchy.
Their sisig tacos is one of the dishes I'll definitely re-order on my next visit.
Shrimp pizza with barbecue sauce. I think that's the best way I could describe this dish. The taste on the sweeter side so I think it would go well to the Filipino palate.
Paella De Carne
It tastes lighter and a bit more bland compared to other Paella's I've tried, but as my friend said... It gets more addictive after every bite. Hahaha. Didn't feel the same way though because by the time this sizzling plate arrived, I was already FULL. :)
You have to try their refreshing drinks. :)

You can find Titto's Latin BBQ in 16 East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig City :)
If you're there for dinner, I suggest you go to their "secret bar" called RM16 at the back the restaurant after year meal. :))
RM16 Drink Suggestion: Hidden Paradise :)
