Seems like everywhere we go, restaurants keep on upgrading not only in giving its customers the best food, but the best place to hangout while feasting their products with your loved ones.
Not only our stomachs went full after leaving the restaurant but were also filled with memories shared at this cozy place. This South American inspired restaurant aims to give us the traditional Latin vibe and menu – and they didn’t disappoint us.
I’d really like to commend the interior design of this place for I personally think that the vibe of a food spot is just as important as the food they’re offering. Nothing would be more perfect than having the best set of food while enjoying the scenery as well and Yuca definitely have it.
With just around PHP 900.00 good for two people, we have indulged in their tacos and grilled meats, which according to the owners themselves, focus on providing the Latin inspired foods instead of juggling between different cuisines from different regions and countries.
For starters, we had Tio Romy’s Nachos (PHP 250.00) which is one our favorite snacks because it’s just so good. It has chips and dip composing of beef barbacoa, marinara, onion confit, picked jalapeno, and corn salsa that goes well together which is why this is one of their top-sellers.
They also have Pollo Chicharones (PHP 165.00) and from the word itself, chicken skin that you wouldn’t want to miss out if you’re also a fan of all time favorite chicken skin from street foods. What you’re going to like about their Yuca Style Ceviche (PHP 330.00) is it’s the combination of your favorite sea foods – squid, prawns, tuna ttaki that are all grilled and dressed with ceviche and chili.
They also have three (3) tacos platter you may choose from; El Bigote (PHP 179.00), Pink Taco (PHP 185.00) and Chili Con Taco (PHP 99.00). My personal favorite is the Pink Taco that I’d definitely get tired of ordering over and over again because of the salmon cubes that has sriracha aioli, scallions, sesame seeds and pickled chili and cucumber. But I’d also give the Chili Con Taco a try the next time I visit.
Yuca also has specialties that are all worth the penny. Their Yuca Fabada with Homemade Corned Beef (PHP 630.00) has chicken chorizo, fillet, beans, chickpeas, horseradish cream, cilantro sauce and homemade corned beef that makes the whole recipe itself rich in all kinds of flavor. At PHP 667.00, you may also avail a grilled loin beef on mashed potatoes and had chimichurri sauce and crispy basil – the Bistec El Yuca.
Out of all the drinks Yuca has, I prefer the Midouri Sour. But if you prefer the strong one, I guess you’re going to like Bullfrog. Their mango shake was sweet and definitely made just the way I like my mango shake to be. The Arroz Mariscos will definitely give you the Latin food experience for the authentic combination of rice and sea food, so it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try as well.
They also have Pineapple Crème Brulee and Fritos Leches as their desserts which I think you’re personally going to like not only because it promotes tropical fruits that has added creamy crème for a different flavor, but it also gives you the vibe of a Southern dessert like no other.
