There’s a new Mediterranean Restaurant on the scene – Tito Sam’s Place! This new restaurant is run by Samuel, an Israeli who was not satisfied with the current state and quality of the Mediterranean restaurants in Bacolod so he put up his own restaurant with his motto, “I can do better.”
You might think that Tito Sam’s place is a Filipino restaurant because of all the Bamboo furniture but actually inside they serve good Mediterranean Food. Tito Sam is here to stay and he practices strict quality control so the food doesn’t become a train wreck like the other Mediterranean restaurants.
We ordered most of the items that they had on their menu to try. We started off with their Babaganoush, a dip made with roasted eggplant and doused with olive oil and basil.
The babaganoush was great and had a delicious creamy taste just like how the people in Israel prepare it. What made it even better was the accompanying freshly baked mini bagels! Just take a piece off and eat it with the dip.
You have your choice of Bagels or their substantial Pita bread which is very thick and filling. This bread is big enough for three people to eat!
Of course, Tito Sam’s Place has the classic favourite Hummus! This creamy dip made of chickpeas (garbanzos) is an excellent snack/pulutan. It has high protein content and it is drizzled with delicious olive oil.
We tried the Shaksuka eggs. It is basically eggs mixed with tomatoes and fried. It’s a very light meal. It is simple but needs more seasoning. (hence us dousing it in hot sauce.)
If you want something a little more meatier, you can’t go wrong with Tito Sam’s hummus with meat. Vey good with Pita bread
Since Tito Sam’s is still on its soft opening and adding new dishes to the menu. This schnitzel with garlic rice and a small salad is not on the menu yet but ask for it from the counter and they will serve it to you.
