Oinky's is owned by the same people who have brought us Garage 88, a successful bar and resto in Katipunan Extension, Q.C. This venture, however, is more focused on serving Filipino specialties and snack food to locals and balikbayans alike. The restaurant came about as a response to the owners' love for chicharon and other Filipino delicacies. Seeing that this line was also a profitable source of business, they began it a year ago.

The place is inside a carwash compound. Since this is the case, car owners would usually grab a bite inside the restaurant while waiting for the car service to be completed. Others would usually go to the place to purely eat. The 60 sqm place is quaint but still enough to maintain its operations. This is due to the fact that other customers just go in to buy their special chicharon and vinegar as pasalubong for friends and family.

I was once again invited by Ms. Ria of OpenRice to try out this joint. My visit to Oinky's began with a chicharon overload. This was the establishment's specialty The chicharon was not only in one variant, but 6. These included the laman, balat, and chichabits in 2 flavors, Barbecue and original. I was able to eat a handful of these togther dipped in their signature vinegar in Original (60 pesos) and Spicy (70 pesos) flavors. The Chicharon laman is priced at 150 pesos while the balat is at 70 pesos. Chichabits are at 60 pesos.

I am pleased to say that the chicharon is top notch as compared to those made by other leading brands. The bites don't seem to be greasy and stale. The juicy and crispy texture is also highly perceptible in every bite. I also like the fact that the chicharon wasn't too salty for my taste.

The vacuum sealed packaging makes sure that the chicharon is edible for up to 20 days after opened. These are not coated in preservatives or other harmful substances that endanger health. For its price, the chicharon is truly worth spending for.

The pandesal favorites of the restaurant are in a number of exciting variants. These are served in the spirit and style of americanized burgers. A piece of pandesal costs 15 pesos while the ones with flavorings are: Chori Pandesal (108 pesos) with egg (108 pesos also), Corned Beef Pandesal (118 pesos), Ham and Cheese Pandesal (88 pesos), Mushroom and Cheese Scrambled Egg Pandesal (Php 68), and Tuna Pandesal (113 pesos). I especially liked their presentation. According to the owners, they usually separate the lettuce and tomatoes from the bun to cater those those meatlovers who usually dislike eating vegetables. That way, it would be convenient for them to savor the pandesal and the meat alone.

With respect to the pandesal, I like the fact that it's soft and chewy. Also, the texture remains even when it's cold as compared to the pugon baked pandesal which becomes hard after a period of time. I also appreciate the meat and fish fillings as they remind me of my regular morning meal composed of pandesal with tuna spread, bacon, etc. etc. While the pandesal variants are not anything unique, these still exhibit excellent quality and taste for the discerning foodie. If I hadn't eaten a lot of chicharon, I could have tried all of their pandesal variants. Accoridng to the owners, the chori pandesal is their speciality. I couldn't agree less as I found it to be my favorite among the variants. The beef was excellently grilled while the sauce served as a wonderful complement to the meat and pandesal.

For dessert, I had a taste of their creamy Mais Con Yelo. At 48 pesos, it certainly is an excellent combination of condensed milk and a ton of sweet yellow corn. It was a truly exciting way to end our taste test.

I'd surely want to come back to this place and savor their chicharon once again! Good thing we also had a gift pack of their special chicharon to take home to our families!

Sarap talaga ng pagkain dito. 🖒🖒🖒

The burger is juicy and tasty. The fries were super flavorful, and all for 208PHP. Ang mura para saken kasi ang sarap ng burger nila, tapos considering na nasa gabitong location sila. Pati beer mura.

The garage burger i didnt like so much. The patty had a lot of filler and was a little small. Flavour was alright tho. Service is awesome. Also liked their popcorn and mixed drinks.

10-peso wings every Wednesday!

And since it will only cost you 10 bucks, do not have high expectations. The wings can be tiny and a bit hard to chew. Flavor is good though. I went here because I was curious, and I wanted to eat as many wings as I can without having to spend too much.

The vibe is super chill and they had a 2000 RnB playlist when we visited!

My son is craving for burger but he doesn't want fast food type. he told me to stop by at this place because he's been told by his classmate that there is a giant burger here. So we decided to come and dine, but apparently we don't like the crowed! I thought the name is just for the interior (garage) since its a trend nowadays. But It's a bar I thought it something decent! (Maarte talaga ko) Anyway we ordered this giant burger and decided to take it home for php 999.00 this is humungous burger! I think it's good for ten persons 128514 I don't like burger pero napakain ako ha and in all fairness it's delicious too. I sliced one for me I end up eating on a third round. I don't know if I'm just bias for being overwhelmed or masarap Lang din siguro. But anyway worth the travel even traffic, worth the penny and worth the try. Buffalo wings are good din.

P10 wings every Wednesday! Wings were sweet and okay.
Try to go early though, we nearly ran out of wings a while ago. Also, they were out of San Mig Pale Pilsen and other beers. Hmmm, I think the person in-charge of inventory planning should review their stock projections or something. 🤔

These burgers are the bomb! 127828128163 We ordered Full Tank. It has a really tasty patty with bacon, egg, tomato, lettuce, and pickles. I would have given this place a perfect 5-star only if the crew is more attentive. Nonetheless, the food is really worth it. I'm really satisfied. Oh, and by the way, burgers are available for buy one take one every Monday from 10 AM to 12 MN so make sure to drop by. 128513
