DOS MESTIZOS Boracay: Is this Spanish-Filipino Heritage Restaurant Still Good?





dosmes11

Dos Mestizos is a family run restaurant that opened its doors nearly 13 years ago and was the brain child of Jose Carlos Remedios aka Binggoy. It started out as your typical mom and pop shop and over the years it has evolved into one of Boracay's best and well-known establishments.  

The secret to Dos Mestizos success is in the simplicity of its menu.  Basic, Rustic, and straight to the point, the culinary heritage of Mestizo cuisine is perfectly preserved in every dish.  

From Tapas to Paella, the menu incorporates fresh ingredients that are mostly sourced locally. Locals and foreigners visiting Boracay flock to Dos Mestizos for these very reasons.

(Mestizo is a term in the Philippines used to describe people of Spanish heritage.)

Gambas Al Ajillo (P305)Shrimp sautéed in olive oil and garlic. 

Right off their Tapas Menu, the sauteed shrimp were perfectly cooked and seasoned to near perfection. The key to this dish, the shrimp are finished with a little white wine.

Salpicao De Vaca (P330)USDA beef cubes in garlic marinade.

Quality beef is marinated with soy sauce, garlic, calamansi, and black pepper. The simplicity of this dish is what makes the Salpicao one of the top sellers.

Paella De Mariscos (P820 small)Fresh Seafood Paella. 

Boracay has what many consider to be one of the best seafood markets in the Philippines,  fresh seafood is brought in daily and finds its way to many of the establishments in Boracay.  

The Seafood Paella is made with what is readily available, ensuring freshness and quality.  Japanese short grain rice is used instead of the traditional Spanish variants.  This added a pleasant bite to the Paella and the smoked paprika tied the dish together nicely.

Pollo Al Ajillo (P690)Quarter chicken sautéed in garlic.

Rustic and straight to the point.  This is how chicken should be prepared.  The skin is crispy and the inside juicy.  With the roasted garlic and herbs infusing earthy flavors into the chicken.  (Must Try!)
