Fresh Taste: All the New Dishes From Chef N’s Illo’s Home

From hearty breakfast plates to a sumptuous buffet spread, food connoisseurs have new reasons to celebrate life and new flavors with Illo’s.

Savory, comforting, and extremely satisfying—only the feelings you can experience when you reward yourself with homey food. These exact feelings were also why Illo’s Party Trays and Illo’s Home by Chef N became a sought-after comfort food, especially during the height of the stay-at-home orders. The homegrown brand even delighted our team with their signature dishes at the recently concluded MEGA Ball.

More than three years since the Illo’s brand was launched, Chef N, a true champion of Filipino food, went from delivering party trays to establishing two dine-in restaurants in Metro Manila. 

Chef N Rovillos, a true champion of Filipino food, offers new dishes at his popular restaurant, Illo’s Home located in Parañaque and Greenhills

Truly a Pinoy Pride

Saturnino ‘Chef N’ Rovillos, founder of Illo’s, started with various food ventures in the past until he finally soared high during the pandemic with Illo’s Party Trays, delivering to over 10,000 families during the pandemic to celebrate at home. Its ‘Dine at Home’ and ‘Celebrate Life Every Day’ concepts give life to what good food and celebration could truly mean and so much more. Chef N, with his determination, passion, and love for good food, has gained success as one of the sought-after chefs in the Metro.

Serving only the best and hotel-quality food, Illo’s Party Trays has always fired up everyone’s appetite with its best-selling offerings from international dishes like Paella Valencia, 40 Cloves of Garlic Chicken, and Flat Porchetta to well-loved Filipino plates like Kare-Kare, Classic Bagnet, Bicol Express, and Canbi Pancit. 

Now with two dine-in restaurants named Illo’s Home in Paranaque and Greenhills, Chef N once again wants to whet every foodie’s appetite with his new dishes.

A Happy Side of Breakfast

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A hearty serving can awaken your senses and power you through what could be a busy schedule. 

A classic Filipino breakfast staple, Chef N created The Champorado Club for those who want a warm and sweet jumpstart to their mornings. Illo’s Champorado comes in three varieties: Classic Chocolate Champorado topped with tuyo, Ube Champorado, and Strawberry Champorado. 

If your sweet tooth wants something crisp or a lighter option, Illo’s Home now offers crepes and waffles with saccharine selections like strawberry, Banana Nutella, blueberry, and honey bacon.

If a huge serving is all you need to seize the day, Illo’s Home Restaurant also won’t miss a chance on giving you a taste of your favorite Filipino breakfast meals in four sumptuous sets with side dishes that include eggs, mango salsa, and garlic rice. The All-Time-Favorite Breakfast includes the Andres Set that comes with fried bangus, beef, and tapa. The Carlos Set served with longganisa, corned beef, and hash; the Alyssa Set plated with mixed sausages, eggs, and bacon; and lastly, the Juan Set which comes with fried bangus and tocino. 

Illo’s Home now offers well-loved international breakfast favorites like the Eggs Benedict

International breakfast favorites are also part of the new menu with Eggs Benedict prepared with Smoked Salmon and Mango Slices; Pulled Smoked Beef and Pimiento; Honey Bacon and Avocado; and Prosciutto and Cheese; Plus, omelets for a light meal like the Mushroom Trifolate Omelet, Spam and Cheese Omelet, and Spanish Omelet. 

A wonderful and feast-like breakfast at Illo’s Home starts at 7 o’clock in the morning daily.

The Ultimate Charcuterie

If there’s anything the new normal has also popularized, it’s having a cheese board in tow on most of your online cocktail nights with your friends. Illo’s Home also launched their artisanal craft dish called “Grandioso.”

Enjoy wine nights with Illo’s Home’s charcuterie board filled with premium cheeses, heat-cured meats, nuts and fruits

The charcuterie board is filled to the edges with premium cheeses, heat-cured meats, green olives, Melba toast, Grissini sticks, walnuts, fruits, and pure honey.

The antipasti also comes in a smaller version, the Bella platter, available to share between you and a friend.

Everyday Feast With a Delectable Buffet

Another way to charm a gastronome is to offer an exquisite array of delectable dishes out there. The success of Illo’s Home in the south made the burgeoning chef decide to try for another home base, this time up north. A month after its dine-in restaurant’s launch in BF Homes Paranaque, Chef N found a new location in Greenhills to house his flavorsome creations.

Have a feast with your friends and family at Illo’s Home’s All-Day Weekend Buffet from Friday to Sunday with their flagship dishes

The newly-opened bistro has a different level of sophistication. The interiors are tailored for a modern vibe accompanied by ambient lighting and a mixture of abstract art fastened on wooden panels. The Greenhills branch offers an All-Day Weekend Buffet from Friday to Sunday with its flagship dishes such as Kare Kare, Binagoongan, Baked Penne, Baked Salmon, and Paella Valencia.

The weekend buffets include eight stations that are worth the stop, each with delicious servings of your favorite canapes, cocktail food, salads, paella, desserts, pastries and beverages. One of the highlights of the scrumptious smorgasbord is the carving station which offers Cochinillo, Lechon Belly, Chicken Galantine, and Lechon.


The All-Day Weekend Buffet starts at 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. located at the Upper Ground Floor Swire Elan Suites Hotel Modern Anapolis Greenhills for only PHP 1,200++. The Buffet menu is based on the chef’s discretion.
