Love Mexican cuisine and Filipino food? Tadeo in Tomas Morato, QC is right up your alley. My brother-in-law recommended this restaurant for us to try. It’s a certified Let’s Eat Pare-approved restaurant, which means that the top food community in the Philippines today believes in their inventive and elevated take on Fil-Mex food. Last week, we checked this place out and were amazed with the interesting and unique tastes of food, especially their burritos and nachos. One bite and you’ll be a believer! 😛

Review of TADEO Filipino Mexican Comfort Food (Tomas Morato, Quezon City)


The industrial setting has a minimalist vibe. With only a limited number of tables and chairs, Tadeo easily gets tightly packed even with the fast and helpful staffers that start serving customers as they arrive. It showcases a hip scene with no frills and no pretension. There’s an open kitchen where you can really see how staff prepares and cooks the food. We were lucky to be seated in the bar area so we got a first-row view of everything. Ambiance is really casual and modest. So don’t judge the decor, judge the wonderful dishes. 😉 Tadeo’s location is somewhat hidden but it’s well worth the trip to find it.


At Tadeo, food variants are delightful and creative, featuring “next-level” dishes that are out of the ordinary. While their dishes might not register high on the authenticity scale, they each bring a special sizzle to the food scene. You won’t get disappointed when expecting a novel twist!

Fittingly for pica, we began with Layered Beef Nachos (PhP 230), which perfectly achieved the perfect gooey-to-crunchy ratio. It consisted of beef guisado, Annatto cheese sauce, beans, tomato, and onions. The various accompaniments make up a great flavor and texture combination.

Next, the Inihaw na Mais or Elote (PhP 75) was served hot. We watched how the corn was grilled in front of us, so it was extra exciting to know how it tasted. The result? We all liked it. Calamansi sour cream, grated cured egg, and calamansi were put together incredibly that will leave you wanting more.

Loaded with sharp cheddar, mozzarella, emmental, Tadeo’s Chicken Inihaw Quesadilla (PhP 180) was made with well-seasoned lean chicken breast that offered a balance with the cheese. Its crisp golden brown exterior is something truly satisfying. Talk about delicious Fil-Mex comfort food everyone will go crazy for!

My vote for the most flavorful dish of our meal goes to the Binagoongan Burrito (PhP 260). It was made with crispy pork, eggplant, tomato, and bagoong rice. This will leave you feeling just filled, not overloaded. It’s a real gem on the menu. I can imagine eating this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Dive in!

Tilapia Fish Rebosado Taco (PhP 160) is the kind of fish taco I crave. It’s made with fried battered tilapia fish, garlic sour cream, red radish, red cabbage, tomato, and spring onion. Altogether, these ingredients add up to taste ultra-fresh and nice, yet they still feel light and healthy. Don’t skip it!

Price for Value:

Tadeo in Tomas Morato offers food at reasonable and inexpensive prices. No wonder it’s a destination for foodies! The serving of each dish can be good for 1-2 people. While straight-up delicioso tacos and burritos make the headline on their short, top-notch menu, guests are always welcome to try their special dishes like pork sisig and pollo inasal. Since the space is quite small for a large group of people (>3 pax), there’s a wait to get in, but the reward is a permanent smile on your face and a happy tummy. 🙂
