Baby Barangay Food Discovery: Solstice by Ilustrado

The Baby Barangay was recently offered a chance to try Solstice by Illustrado at 8 Rockwell. This restaurant only opened earlier this year and is already pulling in a crowd. We came on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. Solstice serves classic Filipino dishes and continental mains to make sure there is something for everyone.

Here are the dishes we really enjoyed!
