Where to Get Your Cochinillo for Christmas

by - Sunday, November 24, 2019

Tittos Latin BBQ and Brew has been feeding us with sinfully delicious Latin American-inspired food with a Filipino touch for quite some time now. Along with their success comes a new branch in Greenhills, which has the same, cheerful vibe as its first branch. 

The colorful murals is the signature of Tittos. It's the first thing we noticed as we approached the restaurant. The play on vibrant colors all around the place, from the furniture to the ceilings, made me feel so elated as we sat down and started to order some drinks. 

Tittos' Elote P245

For starters, we had the famous Mexican elote. It's grilled sweet corn brushed with Latin spices that I really came to appreciate. It's flavorful without being to overpowering. I enjoyed the small amount of creaminess  from the crumbled queso and the extra crunch from the chicharron bits.

Choritos con Coco P295

This is probably the least photogenic dish that was served but also the most surprising in terms of taste. At first glance, it may look like just a bowl of mussels, but the secret to its goodness lies in the creamy coconut jalapeno sauce. 

Pulpo Inasal P395

The pulpo inasal is a lava-grilled inasal infused octopus served in a bed of sweet potato mash and pickled cucumber and vegetables. Although the octopus did not have the strong and easily recognizable taste of inasal, the combination of all the components of the dish surely made up for it. 

Paella de Carne (grande) P745 good for 6-8 pax

I'm going to be a bit biased about the paella de carne since I'm more of a paella negra kind of person. It's not my favorite, but I loved that Tittos was generous with its toppings of bacon, chicken mojo, chorizo, soft-boiled eggs, and french beans. I enjoyed eating it with some lime juice and cilantro.

Cochinillo P7,999

The cochinillo is Tittos' Christmas special. It is glazed with a honey garlic truffle sauce and comes with tortilla wraps and a trio of sauces ~ gravy (made with the conchinillo drippings), herb crumb with liver sauce, and pickled salsa. I absolutely loved combining all the sauces with the meat, the crunchy skin, and a squeeze of lime. The conchinillo is available for both dine in and take out transactions, but must be ordered at least 24 hours in advance. It's the perfect addition to your Christmas feast. 

Molten Lava Cake P250

For dessert, we had the molten lava cake on top of a crisp tulle, served with a glass with red velvet chunks, mint, strawberries, candied cashews, and vanilla ice cream. The way to eat it is to poke a hole in the middle of the cake and tulle such that the chocolate sauce will fall into the glass with all the other components of the dessert. It's a unique and more adventurous take on the simple lava cake we're all familiar with.

Zesty Granita P225

Last but not least, we had the zesty granita as our final palate cleanser. It does not look like much, but for those who are looking for a lighter and more refreshing dessert, this here is what you go for. It's made up of lemon ice cream, candied lemon zest, mint, and game-changing passion fruit chia gel lime granita. 

Tittos also has a few unique drinks you may want to try. 

I had the tamarind cola, which was a less sour version of lemonade and a hint of cola just towards the latter part of every sip. It wasn't too sweet, nor was it too acidic.
