Chili Peppers’ Family Favorites: Naga- Born World Class Cuisine

Chili Peppers’ Family Favorites 
Naga- Born World Class Cuisine 

Chili Peppers started it all in Magsaysay.

The glittering Magsaysay Strip became what it
is now when this awesome restaurant, all by its
lonesome opened in this once desolate grassland.

Naguenos came in droves to sample what was city’s
pioneering Hispano- Mexican cuisine had to offer,
and restaurants  later started  sprouting one by one,
to cater Chili Pepper’s overflowing costumers.

We retuned once on to one of the best restaurants in Naga City
and thoroughly enjoyed Butter Garlic Shrimps for appetizer.
It was very tasty and guaranteed to prime your taste buds for
the hearty meal ahead. Made of generous amount of plump
white shrimps, sliced button mushrooms, sautéed with tangy
lemon garlic butter and topped with white wine reduction.

We ordered some of our all- time favorite dishes
that makes us coming back to Chili Peppers like
the luxuriously yummy Cream of Pumpkin Soup.

Pinangat with Tilapia Fillet is another all- time favorite,
that we never fail to order here. A fusion of two iconic
Bicolano dishes; the CamSur version of pinangat where
there is a generous filling made of chopped crablets and
ground young coconut meat between layers of velvety
smooth taro leaves, simmered in creamy coconut milk.

Topped with a perfectly seared tilapia fillet, with nori strips,
bathed in creamy coconut milk and sprinkled with sesame
seeds. They make an awesome crave - worthy combination.


The Baby Come Back lives up to its name as it kept us coming
back. This tender and tasty ribs probably made this restaurant
very popular, that made droves of Naguenos troop to Magsaysay,
and it didn’t matter how secluded and out-of-the-way it was then.

Another all time family favorite is the Sweet Chop of Mine.
Two huge slabs of perfectly grilled 300 grams prime pork
chops, glazed with sweetish teriyaki sauce, lying in a bed of
Java rice and with a mound of pickled papaya as a side dish.


I’m saving the best for last in this review and the
Jambalaya Pealla deserves the honor for this one.

It is one of the paella variety listed on the menu and we have
already tried the Paella Mariscos and Paella Valenciana which
we extremely enjoyed in the past and I featured it on this LINK..


I was intrigued about this iconic New Orleans' dish as it was fused with 
another iconic dish from Spain and the result was mind blowing.The merry 
mix of seafood, spiced with onions, red and green peppers, interspersed 
with generous slices of Hungarian sausage, egg wedges, in the Jambalaya's
 time tested  tradition of putting everything edible, anything available but 
cooked the paella way. This dish is a delicious culinary masterpiece.


Also not to be missed are the
refreshing shakes and drinks.


I am a loyal fan of this wonderful restaurant that offers
world- class cuisine and traces its roots in this city. It had  
expanded in Metro Manila and it holds the distinction of
starting everything on once forlorn place that had grown
into the glittering and glitzy Magsaysay Strip of today.
