We recently enjoyed our FoodStreet Food trip with the family last Sunday Night. For P500+, we got to enjoy American Food from Buffalo Wings N Things and Mexican Food from Jalapeno Cantina Mexicana. Both menus are already tailor-fit to the Filipino palate and are very affordable. These are the two interesting restaurants worth going to at the Ortigas Home Depot Food Street. The cool thing is you can sit in any of the two restos and order from either one because they are beside each other.

Jalapeno Cantineta Mexicana Menu Front | Menu Back

Most of the restaurants along Food Street are themed, have a small first floor, a bigger second floor dining area and an al fresco area. Above photo is the second floor area of Jalapeno where you can reserve it for a family function or event.

The first floor dining area of Buffalo Wings n Things is set up like a canteen with a diner ambiance.

Grilled Chicken Mexicana (P175) Grilled Chicken Fillet, Corn Relish, Mexican Salad with choice of Mexi-Rice or 2 pcs. Tortilla

This is one of the best sellers of Jalapeno because the chicken itself is juicy and spicy without the need for the sauce. The salsa tasted like sweet tomato ketchup, which the kids loved. 🙂  We love everything in this meal except the refried beans, which tasted like beans fried for the 10th time.

Pepper Steak Burrito (P175) 8 in. Tortilla, beef tenderloin, mexi-rice, refried beans, onions, cheese, salsa and sour cream.

A classic steak burrito made delicious by the sweet salsa and sour cream. It is not exactly as freshly made as Ristras but this is the Filipino version of the Burrito we grew up with.

Tortilla with Salsa and Sour Cream (P55). Extra Tortilla is P15 and Extra Dip is P20

One of the things about Mexican restaurants is that most of the dishes are spicy and the kids hate them. We had to innovate by ordering additional Tortilla with Salsa and Sour Cream inside.

The kids were happy. Joshua was able to eat the mexi-rice and corn salad while Aidan enjoyed the Salsa and Sour Cream Tortilla.

1/2 Pound Champion Buffalo Wings (P125) Firehouse Classic Sauce.

We loved this because of the cheese that tasted like chiz wiz with chili. 🙂 Next time, we will order the Nuclear super hot sauce (see Buffalo Wings n Things Signature Sauces)
