The Great Eatscape: XO46 Heritage Bistro

XO46 Heritage Bistro was built with the Filipino and foreign gastronome in mind - those who wish to enjoy the varied flavors of our islands in its purest form. 

If you're looking for traditional, honest-to-goodness Filipino cuisine, XO46 is the place for you. Here, they offer dishes that have been slowly and lovingly prepared using traditional methods and ingredients. They don't believe in instant food - their dishes are prepared the long way, the way our forefathers used to.
It harks back to carefree days at home with well-loved, nostalgic flavors, but XO46 delivers it all with a unique flair that aims to raise the bar for our national cuisine.

I especially loved how the servers were so welcoming and spoke in pure Tagalog. Everything from "Thank you" (Salamat) to "Ready? 1, 2 , 3.. Smile! " (Handa na ba kayo? Isa, dalawa, tatlo.. Ngiti po lahat!) It's so nice how they're keeping to our traditions and encouraging everyone to speak the language.
Here are some dishes we got to try:

Complimentary Puto with Mantikilya and Aligue Butter
Ginataang Santol or Sinantolan
Sugpo sa Aligue
Bangus Salpicao
XO46 Heritage Bistro
Adobong Batangas
Pancit Pusit
Crispy Binagoongan
Vegetarian Mountain Fried Rice
To be honest, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed their dishes. I have never been to XO46 before and this experience was a real eye-opener! I can't believe how much I've been missing out, so the next time I'm in the area, I'm most definitely going to pay XO46 a visit!

XO46 Heritage Bistro is located at 3/F SM Aura Premier, C5 corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
