I can say confidently that Lo De Alberto is THE most authentic Mexican restaurant in Manila. After all, the chef is from Mexico City and you cannot get more authentic than that. I have mad respect for the group of people who made the good choice to go right to the source and bring this goodness to Manila. As I have mentioned before, the thicker the accent the more legit the food (the chef speaks excellent English though, so I say this tongue in cheek.) It’s not the freshly pressed corn tortillas made to order that get me but the simple unadulterated menu of Lo De Alberto, no fusion and no twists, just real authentic Mexican food. Being from California and growing up on taco trucks, taquerias and Southwest summers, I want real legit Mexican food and Lo De Alberto is where it’s at. How lucky am I that Lo De is located right in Ortigas? Manila has everythaaaang these days.
