For genuine European cheeses, sausages, and wines, Chateau Hestia Garden Restaurant & Deli in Silang Town, Cavite Province, stands out. Foreigners, local tourists, celebrities, and politicians drive all the way to Silang to have a taste of Europe.
My family and I instantly experienced a gastronomical European tour with all the authentic dishes originating from Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and France in this comfy and rustic restaurant.
While you wait for your order, you can already enjoy their complimentary bread platter with eggplant dip.
Salads and appetizers.
Begin with their Salmon Salad Nicoise. It’s a combination of fresh greens tossed with seared salmon flakes, green and black olives, anchovies, capers, green beans and hard-boiled egg, served with a light vinaigrette. Php320 – petite | Php395 – grand
For me, it’s a must that you order their Sausage Platter of Austrian and German sausages including slices of weisswurst, currywurst, weiner and bockwurst, served with Dijon, roasted potatoes and sauerkraut. Sauerkraut is chopped cabbage that’s pickled in brine. The sausages go well with their German mustard. Php450 – single | Php640 – sharing
Time for pizza.
How about some meat on your pizza. Pizza Reale is topped with prosciutto, pancetta, salame, bresaola, pepperoni, speck, trancio and ground sirloin. 8-inch pizza – Php590 | 12-inch pizza – Php790
Now the pasta.
Pasta di Mare is a medley of seafood in simmered pomodoro sauce. Php475
Here’s another pasta dish: Baked Spinach and Mushroom Cannelloni. It’s sautéed porcini, button mushrooms and creamed spinach rolled in homemade pasta, baked with béchamel and tomato sauce. This is really good and the mushroom taste will generously embrace your excited palate. Php475
Bring in the meats. Presenting the entrées.
Osso Bucco Milanese is a traditional dish from Italy. It’s beef shank that Chateau Hestia slowly simmers in rich tomato sauce, served with risotto Milanese and green beans. The beef bone marrow is pure joy. Php680
Kummelbraten – Austrian Roast Pork. Viennese oven-roasted pork belly with caraway seeds and garlic, served with servietten knodel and sauerkraut. Php540
Baked Salmon and Sautéed Shrimps. Lemon-pepper crusted fillet of salmon served on a bed of potato gnocchi, shrimps and fresh vegetables. Php750
Veal Schnitzel. A famous Viennese dish of thinly sliced veal served with parsley potatoes and Hestia green salad. Php750
Fried Pumpkin Chicken. Pumpkin and butter-filled chicken, fried to golden brown, served with mushroom sauce and scallop potatoes. Php555
The restaurant has its signature iced tea. Hestia’s Special Iced-Tea is brewed iced tea with grenadine syrup, orange, sugar, and calamansi syrup. They also serve Lemongrass Iced-Tea, and my favorite Pandan Iced-Tea. Php95
Ending on a sweet note. Desserts.
Gongonzola Cheesecake. I’m a fan of cheesecakes and this one is amazing. There’s a hint of that distinct gorgonzola taste, but not too strong, which makes it light and perfect. (Price not available, request for this dessert ahead of time)
Belgian Chocolate Cake. It’s dreamy. Rich dark chocolate that can put me in a trance. Delicious. (Price not available, request for this dessert ahead of time)
They have a shop where you can buy authentic sausages and even homemade wines. To spend the night, you can also enjoy their bed and breakfast (blog coming soon).
Chateau Hestia Garden Restaurant & Deli opened in 2007, serving their very own home recipes using the traditional slow-cooking process. They use meats from grass-fed cows, locally grown herbs and vegetables and fine-quality ingredients from all over Europe. They bake their own breads, make their own dips and salad dressings without extenders and emulsifiers.
Chateau refers to a large French country house. Hestia is the Greek goddess of hearth. Hearth is the area in front of the fireplace. Chateau Hestia.
