Pakistani/Indian Cuisine is now here in Bacolod City! Head over down to Philistan Resto bar in Barangay Villamonte.
Philistan resto bar is the first restaurant in Bacolod City to be solely dedicated to Pakistani food. That means a lot of Biryani, Curries and other Pakistani/Indian dishes to tickle your fancies!
So we headed on down to Philistan Resto bar in Barangay Villamonte. It’s a small restaurant that can seat about 6 people with social distancing. (You should be sitting outside anyway).
The interior of Philistan Resto Bar is simple. You can refer to their menu on the chalkboards or on their printed menu sheets.
We ordered their best sellers – Chicken Biryani (190 php combo) and Beef biryani. (2oo php combo) For appetizers we got samosas. (100php combo). The combo meals come with a boiled egg, yoghurt, garlic sauce and a soft drink so we highly recommend getting a combo meal.
A fantastic aroma of cardamom, masala and exotic spices diffused throughout the restaurant as our food was cooking. It made us even hungrier.
The samosas are basically egg wrappers encasing a spiced meat mixture. We personally prefer vegetable samosas but Philistan Resto Bar’s version is pretty good too.
If you love Biryani Rice, you’re in for a treat. Philistan Resto Bar Bacolod has big servings of Biryani Rice. There’s so much long-grain goodness and the rice is perfectly seasoned and spiced (albeit a bit salty). We got the combo meal for the chicken and the beef biryanis. They were very good but we’re not really big fans of boiled eggs in our Biryani.
The Beef Biryani is quite tasty with plenty of fried onion and a delicious aromatic smell. This made us order a lot of garlic sauce! Philistan Resto bar’s sauces go very well with the rice. Delicious!
Philistan Resto Bar is a great place to have your curry / biryani rice fix. The portions are big and the flavors are pretty good. They also have delivery and take out. Just get in touch with them at their Facebook page or give them a call.
