(L-R) Alfredo Wenceslao (Owner) and Chef Rodrigo “Ogie” Reloj (Head Chef)

Ensaladang Talong (Php 149)
We all loved this – we loved the delicate mix of the smokey eggplant, onions and salted egg.
Lumpiang Hubad in Pastry Cups (Php 120)
What a fun way to eat lumpiang ubod! Stir-fried veggies served in a crispy open pastry cups. Yum!
Sinigang na Tadyang ng Baka (Php 385)
This beef sinigang is totally different from the usual Filipino sinigang that we’ve been exposed to. It contains blue ginger (galanggal) and kaffir lime which contributed to the “Tom Yum” taste :) It was really good!
Crispy to the Bone Hito ni Ka Freddie (Php 358)
This is a must try! I loved how Cafe De Bonifacio filleted the crispy catfish, with chunky cut meats ready for popping to our hungry mouths – only after dipping it in the very special “pinakurat” Cebuano vinegar.
Mango and Latik Roti (Php 145)
Ube and Macapuno Roti (Php 145)
I was never a fan of ube nor macapuno but I didn’t know that these ingredients could be so yummy when paired with a good roti bread.
WHEN IN MANILA, don’t forget to check out Cafe De Bonifacio in Podium Mall and be amazed at “revolutionized” Filipino cuisine.
