Eating At Lorenzo’s Way

I must have eaten at this place a half dozen times, most of them after short, evening runs with friends or when i get to attend product launches which are sometimes held in this fine restaurant. There are plenty of fine Filipino restaurants within the Bonifacio Global City but this place takes it to a whole new level.

Lorenzo’s Way is one great fine dining resto, it has this classic touch, the place is visually nice and the food is top notch, Filipino style! I soon found at that Lorenzo’s Way is owned and operated by the same owners of Cafe Adriatico, Cafe Havana and Abe Restaurant, favorite hang-out of people who love good food.

You would feel at home here, even if you enter in your sweaty work-out shirt, shorts and dirty running shoes as the service staff are very welcoming on each customer and there’s the usual greetings as soon as they recognize you, if you’ve been frequenting the place.

Getting to the food, there’s the usual favorites which we often order like the Binukadkad na Pla-pla and the garlic chicken which are their specials! Lots of other dishes to choose from and i have listed below some of their other dishes offered in an event launch last week.

I would recommend this place for anyone who works or lives in Bonifacio Global City. It’s great for an evening or lunch get together, not your typically over-priced restaurant and the food here tastes so good!

Crispy Baby Squid

Nice to have a beer with this, crispy deep fried baby squids. Addicting as you munch on this while waiting for the main course. I prefer to dip this in garlicky vinegar instead of the chili sauce.

Bulalo Soup

Mini servings of beef shanks and bone marrow soup. Reminds me of Tagaytay’s authentic Bulalo.

Binukadkad na Pla-pla

The meat of this large Tilapia is sliced on both sides up to its head, just exposing the thorns and is deep-fried to perfection. Best served with soy sauce cum bits of onions and red chili or local vinegar sauce. The outside turned out really crispy, while the inside was tender and flavorful as you could taste all the flavorings in it!

Bamboo Rice

Fried rice with bits of chicken, mushroom and shrimps served in a short,Β  open bamboo pole. Just good for two people so you have to order some more if you’re more than two.

Braised Beef Short Ribs (Beef Calderata)

Large chunks of beef which is creamy while the tomato sauce is not too overbearing. Cooked with the usual carrots, potatoes and olives.

Spanish Garlic Chicken

The chicken here has been marinated, oven cooked with whole cloves of garlic that are sauteed in olive oil, mashed into small bits, and added back in towards the end of cooking. One of the best chicken recipes i have ever tasted! You can eat the garlic if you want but don’t forget to brush your teeth after!

Kangkong Lechon

Tender pork belly deep-fried and we had a rind that is crisp and puffed. Served together with sauteed adobong Kangkong (water spinach) and you have a winner!

Mild Gising-gising

Bicol vegetable dish made with ground pork, green beans, coconut milk and chilis. Great with steamed rice!

Banana Chocolate Volcano Cake

Dessert came in the form of a chocolate cake topped with roasted bananas, smothered with chocolate syrup and coffee creme sauce. A great dessert to end a meal!
