NEW TO EL NIDO? EAT BREAKFAST LIKE A LOCAL. PRESENTING THE SILOGS!
Silog is short for sinangag at itlog, sinangag referring to delicious garlicky fried rice and itlog or egg served your way.
A must have of every Filipino breakfast table is tocino, essentially slices of sweet and tender cured young pork are caramelized and served with garlicky fried rice and a fried egg.
This is a sweet skinless sausage prepared with plenty of garlic and love again served with the winning combo of our garlicky fried rice and a fried egg.
Fish for breakfast? Yes to that in the Philippines!
Lamayo are small fish that are butterflied and marinated in plenty of garlic and coconut vinegar and fried to crispy wonderfulness by our chefs. A classic among Filipinos. Yes and it comes with our garlic rice and a fried egg as well.
Tapsilog does not refer to tap dancing rice and garlic(though that might be fun), instead we serve another Filipino traditional breakfast item called tapa, in our case thin slices of beef belly marinated and baked to caramelicious perfection. With the prerequisite sides of non dancing yet very animated garlic fried rice and fried or scrambled egg.
Did you hear about the hen who laid her egg on an axe?
She wanted to hatchet.
Seriously now, here’s our egg menu.

Another light and fluffy three egg omelette with a generous amount of cheese.
Two Eggs your way
Sounds like the start of the joke, but really. Have them fried, sunny side up, or over-easy .We have you covered.
These scrambled eggs are the best, and that’s no yolk!
Two eggs scrambled perfectly and drizzled with browned butter.
