    Among their signature dishes include the Tuna Tartare Kilawin with coconut cream pinakurat, a spicy and tangy combination that will make your mouth water for more. Meanwhile, if you’re craving for an elevated version of Filipino street foods, the Okoy de Pulpo, served with octopus and squid ink sofrito, is definitely a great choice!

    Sinuglaw Grilled Pork and Tuna Ceviche, on the other hand, combines savory and citrusy flavors as the dish features marinated U.S. Pork, fresh tuna, as well as toyomansi (soy sauce and calamansi) gelee with citrus water.

    For lovers of the Filipino staple, sinigang with its sour broth, you should try Casa Buenas’ Coconut Pork Sinigang with pork belly simmered in coconut tamarind and taro broth. Now, if you want something heartier, don’t forget to indulge on their Grilled U.S. Angus Beef Ribeye Steak with orange compound butter, vegetables, complemented by three (3) sauces.

    You and your family may enjoy this feast at Casa Buenas’ Filipino ancestral home-inspired restaurant, with elements from rich indigenous materials such as capiz fixtures, solihiya furniture, hand-carved hardwood floors, and Machuca tiles from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
