Elias, Home of Filipino Dining

Probably named after one of the characters of Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere, here is a fine dining for Filipino Dishes — called Elias.

We dined at the Bonifacio High Street Central in Taguig…



Crispin at Basilio — Tokwat baboy (Tofu and pork in onion and vinegar). Crispin and Basilio were brothers in Rizal’s novel Noli Me Tangere. They suffered cruelty while working as altar boys during the Spanish period.






“Bahay Kubo” composed of veggies cooked with coconut milk (P260). Bahay Kubo is Filipino folksong on various vegetables harvested in a farm


Cremoso for dessert. Its creamy buko pandan.


The manager even took a foto of diners for souvenir…
