El Raza Restaurant and Catering

Try out this new restaurant in Talisay City! We visited El Raza Restaurant and Catering – a new, scenic restaurant located in Talisay City just a short trip outside Bacolod.

El Raza restaurant is located alongside the Talisay Highway just before you get to Pacific shores. This restaurant has captured the attention of locals because it is located in a field with no buildings around it. The bright lights and the distinct structure is extremely eye-catching at night.

El Raza Restaurant and Catering is an elevated, open air restaurant that takes advantage of the cool breeze and the natural light.

El Raza is the brainchild of Ging Lewis, the owner of Silver and Plum in Bacolod City. She developed the menu of El Raza and expanded it to include seafood dishes alongside the delicious International menu of El Raza.

The interior of El Raza is bright and cheerful. The open spaces let in a lot of natural light and cooling breezes. At night, a lot of locals come for the beer, cocktails, imported wines and the great food.

The interior is simple and functional.

El Raza has a surprising array of dishes available. The selection is wide and surprisingly varied for a restaurant outside Bacolod City. We ordered a bunch of things from their menu to try.

Time to dig in!

El Raza has a few Japanese dishes on their menu. We love Tuna Sashimi so we ordered it as an appetizer. The fish was fresh, clean tasting and quite delicious. This went very well with a lunchtime beer.

If you’re a newcomer to El Raza Restaurant and Catering, you must absolutely try the Beef Curry. There are two ways you can have your Beef Curry at El Raza – Indian Masala or Thai Curry. Both are really good. I love the Indian Masala for the stronger, savory taste while some our friends prefer the Thai Curry for a spicer, peppier flavor.

Either way, you can’t go wrong with either one. Order extra rice as they serve a generous portion of the curry.

There are a lot of International dishes at El Raza Restaurant and Catering. One of the dishes that we ordered was the Spicy Beef Mexican Strips. The spiciness was just right for us. Very good with rice and a cold drink. A simple but flavorful dish.

Each restaurant has its signature dish and El Raza has one – Pork Ribs Ala Ging. It’s a slab of ribs stewed in a special marinade until soft and served with a special sauce.

El Raza Restaurant and catering also has pasta, noodles and fresh seafood. They have a lot of different stuff to offer diners.

Time for dessert! We chose the English Bread Pudding. It came with a golden brown crust and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is quite different from the Filipino version of bread pudding. El Raza’s version is more fluffier, almost like a cake in its consistency.

Of course, dessert wouldn’t be complete with a delicious cup of Liberian Coffee (Coffea Liberica). The coffee originally hails from Liberia and was imported to the Philippines in the 1800s.

The Coffee supplier of El Raza is Balete Brew. You can also order their coffee via their official Facebook page:

There’s also fresh fruit shakes and cocktails available at El Raza. Just look for Jamela’s Fruit Juice Bar. They have all sorts of drinks and refreshment available.
