Sultan Mediterranean Grill

Weekend get-together with co-foodies has brought us to try out a Mediterranean restaurant in Salcedo. 

Located at G 9, Valero Plaza Condominium, San Agustin Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Sultan Mediterranean Grill is a small restaurant that could be missed out because of its location. 

A brief description of their restaurant.

The interiors are a mix of industrial and modern Greek architecture. There aren't much seats in the restaurant but there are good spacing between tables and the place is well lit. The decors also give a homey feel which aids to a comfortable dining experience.

Here are the dishes that we had:

Let's begin with the condiments. Staple to Mediterranean food is the Tzatziki Sauce or Greek yogurt sauce. What I liked about Sultan is that aside from the usual yogurt sauce served in Mediterranean restaurants, they also provide one that is spicy. (In the photo: Beside the yogurt is a list of their best sellers, the ones that we have tried. 


Falafel. Deep fried patty made of chickpeas, with lots of spices, served with pita on a bed of hummus bi tahina and veggies. I came in a little late and was not able to take a good shot of the dish. The hummus is good and I love its texture compared to other Mediterranean restaurants that I have tried. The patty tastes average.


Salata Horiatiki. Greek country salad. Fresh salad greens, cucumber, tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese. The veggies are served fresh with a sour base as their sauce/dressing. 

Vitamin Boost. Fresh lettuce, cucumber, quinoa, mango, red onions, oranges, dried cranberries, walnuts. Served with orange cranberry dressing and grilled chicken. This one is really good. Sweet and tasty, the walnuts, mangoes, and oranges also complements the greens well. I prefer this salad over the other. 


Moussaka. A uniquely Greek traditional dish of layered minced beef, eggplant and cheeses, baked like Italian lasagna. I am not fond of eating eggplants but their moussaka is just great. I barely like eggplants but this dish made me do so. Though it does not taste like authentic moussaka anymore. For me, it is served with a twist of western taste and the cheesiness seemed to cater well with the local diners. 


Braised Lamb Shanks. Juicy lamb shanks stewed and braised with spices. Served with buttered rice. I've had lamb a lot of times before but this one is just absolutely delightful. The buttered rice is just right, not too buttery which can lose your appetite, nor is it bland either. The texture of the lamb shank is like eating a huge chicken leg. I also learned from the staff that the braising takes three hours for them to achieve this.

Kebab Platter (Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Seafood). The kebab platter is a choice of any 4 sticks of kebab or koobideh, served with grilled tomato. The texture could do better if it is softer and the taste is average. What I liked most in this platter is the seafood.

Chicken Curry. A combination of herbs and spices cooked with coco milk to provide a nice thick sauce. This can also be served as beef or seafood curry. Tastes just right. 


Lobia Rice. Rice with string beans and chicken with a twist of Mediterranean taste. The lobia rice is heavy in the tummy and could sate you well. Goes well with the chicken curry and the kebab platter.


Shawarma. They serve it in beef or chicken. The wrap is good and the filling is also sating.


Fruit Yogurt + Shake (Mango, Strawberry, Mixed Berry). I find this very refreshing and the combination of the yogurt and fruit is a good balance. My preferred drink is the mango fruit yogurt + shake. While the sourest is the strawberry. They can also mix two fruits from the menu if you like. E.g. Mango-Banana

The Menu

The price of the dishes are justifiable in terms of taste, amount of serving, and dining environment.
