Last April 30, my family and I once again visited the Aristocrat Restaurant at Malate Manila.
This place is memorable to me and my husband because it was at this place where we had the traditional “pamamanhikan” . Opss yah I know it’s not so traditional in a sense that it should be done at the girl’s house, but because my husband and I agreed to make it hassle free (which includes cleaning of the house plus cooking), my mom decided to just set it in a place where everyone will feel comfortable and will enjoy the food, and we knew Aristocrat Restaurant can provide the things we need.
This is also the #1 choice of my parents-in-law whenever my husband brought them to the stage and make them proud for various medals and accomplishments that he received every school year when he was still going to school.
The Malate branch may have changed it’s interior but the food is still the same from then until now.

About Aristocrat Restaurant
Aristocrat started it’s business at 1936, it is a Filipino-owned family corporation founded by the late Doña Engracia “Aling Asiang” Cruz-Reyes and her husband, Justice Alex A. Reyes.
It is one of the best restaurants that was featured in the book “Eat Out Now! 115 Manila Restaurants We Love” by Alicia SY (Town & Country Philippines’ Lifestyle Editor and a regular contributor at Elle Decoration Philippines, Yummy and Women’s Health Magazine).
What makes Aristocrat Restaurant stand the test of time? One of the reasons, was because they have the best Chicken Bbq in town, with the best java rice and java sauce that has a unique and invigorating taste. The place provides a welcoming atmosphere that makes families feel special. The menu has lots to offer and everything are made with perfection. The quality of their food is always at the top of their priority which you can be assured that it is the same from one branch to another. Not to mention that their customer service are extra ordinary as well.
Subic Bay Aristocrat Branch
In regards to this, we have visited their Subic Bay branch yesterday. It is located at the busy street of Maharlika Grounds, Rizal Highway, Subic Bay Freeport Zone Olongapo, Zambales. It is the very first franchisee of Aristocrat Restaurant. We’ve met the owner Mr. Jay Ramos and he told us that their family decided to franchise Aristocrat because it was the restaurant they go to when they were in Manila. They love the food, so they tried to talk to the management and ask if they can open a branch at Subic. Luckily Aristocrat agreed and the rest as they say is history.
The Subic Bay branch started last year December 2005, this year they are going to celebrate their 8th year Anniversary. They also offer deliveries through the number 2523910. The Subic Bay branch also have a function room for any special occasions and it can handle 100 seats.
We ordered the following meals for our lunch:
Aristocrat’s Famous Chicken Barbeque with Java Rice- P195.00
Sinigang na Tyan na Bangus P340.00
Fish Fillet in Sweet and Sour Sauce P240.00
Aristocrat Lumpiang Shanghai P260.00
I have enjoyed all the meals that was served. It was my first time to try their version of Lumpiang Shanghai and this is the first time that I ate the meatiest lumpiang shanghai in my whole life (no exaggeration it’s the truth I swear). For the drinks, I ordered their famous Iced Tea (P70.00) I don’t have a nice picture of it but I tell you it was also one of the best Iced Teas that I have ever tasted.
The exterior of the Subic Bay branch is also a plus. They have a mini garden on the side of the restaurant, which is a perfect place for diners who love the feel of fresh air on their faces while they eat. It also has a mini pond with lots of Koi fishes in it.
Here is my husband and son after a sumptuous meal.
Did I made you feel hungry now? Wait till you see the list of their merienda dishes on my food blog. And, I will also show you a sneak peek of what you can do on a Tree Top Adventure at Subic on my mommy blog.
