Oriang by Cafe de Bonifacio: Revolutionary Filipino Cuisine (Market! Market!)

It's been awhile since I last went out with foodie friends so I decided to join in on a quick dinner at the Oriang in Fiesta Market, Market MarketOriang is the latest restaurant by Cafe de Bonifacio.  Although I've not tried the latter yet, I've heard lots of raves about it.


Oriang is named after the exceptional, modern and revolutionary wife of Andres Bonifacio, founder of the Katipunan and Father of the Philippine Revolution.

The place offers a bright, spacious, causal and cozy ambiance with wooden tables and cushioned seats.  The color-stripe walls accentuates the tempting food photos well.

The food at both Oriang and Cafe de Bonifacio are Filipino Food with a twist.  I'm rarely excited about Filipino cuisine, but I'm always intrigued when they spice it up with something more.

Complimentary Appetizer
We were given a complimentary appetizer which are crackers with pesto oil.  I enjoyed both the crunch and the taste.

Superb Starters
gambas al ajillio
Gambas al Ajillio (275 php)
The Gambas al Ajillio is tender shrimps sauteed in pepper and garlic.  This was very flavorful which make it appetizing to eat.
lumpiang hubad
Lumpiang Hubad in Pastry Cups (135 php)
I loved the presentation and the crunchy delight that the Lumpiang Hubad in Pastry Cups brings.  I found these to be extraordinarily addictive.  I bet even veggie haters would love these!

Savory Soups
nilagang bulalo
Nilagang Bulalo (325 php)
The Nilagang Bulalo is served in generous proportionsAnd, more importantly, the beef shanks are tender.  The broth is tasty and the seasoning is just right.

binagoongan bagnet
Binagoongang Bagnet (185 php)
I'm impressed at how perfectly crunchy the Binagoongang Bagnet is even after a long time interval upon serving.  It's saltiness is on a delicately appealing level that will leave you wanting for more.

Specialty Rice & Noodles
oriang super fried rice
Oriang Super Fried Rice (215 php)
I'm quite partial to everything with taba ng talangka so I instantly fell in love with the Oriang Super Fried Rice.  It was exploding in flavors with the taba ng talangka, garlic bits, grilled liempo strips and Vigan longganisa shreds.  Seriously, this is the kind of rice you can eat on its own.

The best part of dining at Oriang is definitely the dessert so don't ever skip this!

Ginumis (85 php)
This has got to be the best Ginumis I have ever tried!  The sweetness is just right so it brings out the refreshing taste of the coconut cream.  I love how the creaminess complimented by the play of textures by the gulaman, sago and rice crisps.  This alone is enough to make me come back.

turon de gregoria
Turon de Gregoria (85 php)
I've never seen a turon served in a plating as beautiful as the Turon de Gregoria.  Top some vanilla ice cram in every turon piece and you're good to go.  It's a cool, crunchy and sweet treat. 

coffee leche flan
Coffee Leche Flan (70 php)
The Coffee Leche Flan is another revoluntionary meal-ender.  Its my first time to try something like this and I loved it!  I never knew that bitter-sweet coffee and egg could blend so well together.  Although this is heavier than the usual leche flan, its still as creamy. 

Oriang Coolers
cucumber lemon juice
Cucumber and Lemon Juice (75 php)
The Cucumber and Lemon Juice is a refreshing drink that will never overpower you meal choice.  I highly suggest this especially on a hot summer day.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict

Oriang is not your ordinary Filipino restaurant but a revolutionary one. Serving size is great for sharing so bring in your family and friends.  Their price is affordable too.
