Had a candle-lit lunch to celebrate the birthday of King Y 's Mom today.

We had Crispy Baby Squid, Binukadkad na Pla-Pla, Knockout Knuckels, Spaghetti with Pancetta, and Lumpiang Sariwa. Their Solo serving is good for sharing which made it a good deal. The Lumpia came in 2 pieces, the Pla-Pla was hefty enough for 4 persons, and the Knockout Knuckles (Crispy Pata) was surprisingly for sharing.

Just quite disappoined that almost all of the dishes tasted bland. The only thing I liked was the Baby Squid. The pancetta is their carbonara version. I didnt taste it, but King Y's Mom said it was good. The Lumpiang Sariwa was so ordinary that I had to ask for extra peanut sauce. Nothing was so special with the Pata and Pla-Pla except the serving size. The dishes weren't that satisfying. Felt like there's always something missing.

The highlight was probably the Chocolate Almond Cheesecake we had for dessert. It was chilled and it was sooo goood. I can tell it's made out of pure cream cheese. The saltiness perfectly matched with the chocolate sauce an almond bits on top.

I had coffee while they opt for the Chamomile Tea to pair with the cheesecake. The chamomile tea was worth the Php85 because it can fill up a total of 3 cups. The Cappucino was also good!

Giving 3 rating because the service was superb. The staff were all professional and very accommodating. The music, and the interior gave the place a very cozy, intimate, and classy ambiance. It wasn't crowdy probably because it's a weekday. The dining experience was okay so I would still recommend this for group dining and to those who crave for Filipino Cuisine.

Before we left, King's Dad received a free mug as part of their promo for Father's Day yesterday.

I plan to try their Kare-Kare and other cakes on my next visit! :)

Lorenzo's way, where tastes matters! If you are looking for an authentic filipino cuisine, this is perfect for you especially if you have a balikbayan coming! We had callos for our appetizer, the tripe is so tender and the sauce is so tasty, perfect with bread. For our soup we ordered Onion Soup Gratinee and La Mancha (this is a must try! Creamy garlic soup with bacon, ham and chorizo bits) Now for the main courses we had Coco Loco Prawns (sauted prawns in lemon grass and coco milk), Lengua Estufada (the beef tongue is actually tender and it melts in your mouth), Inihaw na Liempo (juicy and tender plus the side dish atsara is superb) and for our rice we ordered Dilis-cious rice its a fried rice topped with dilis. (Thumbs up to this rice!) I also ordered guya-mango tease for my drink, a refreshing smoothie!
love the vintage and elegant theme of the restaurant, perfect for families to bond and enjoy 128513

Delicious Filipino comfort food!

We tried the lengua estufado and costillas ternera de guisada. Both were cooked to soft perfection and I loved how the vegetables on the side of the lengua remained crunchy. I also loved how the olives on top of the costillas added flavor to the dish.

For dessert, I ordered the choco almond cake. It was not too sweet and not foamy with icing like most generic cakes.

The staff were polite and attentive.

Ask the chef to take it easy with the salt and it's bulalo soup would be a good fare. Its prawns creole hollandaise is likewise recommend. Place is clean and if you have an LJC card, you can get a discount. Bigger discount on your birthday month.

Looking for a place to bring your foreign friend to have a taste of Filipino Cuisine? This is the place to be 128522

They served water and chips first. The chips were so thin and it lacked salt maybe but for me it was acceptable. It was free naman 128522 We waited for a while.

We ordered Beef Kaldereta as you can see in the picture. It has big cuts but it was easy to chew. 128077🏼 We also ordered Pinakbet. I was looking for Kalabasa kasi nga pinakbet 128514 but I didn't find any in their pinakbet. It was good though. It's different from the typical Pinakbet. There were some shrimps, tomatoes, ampalaya and Okra. I love shrimps! It was fresh. My Japanese friend really liked it especially the Okra. Siya nakaubos 128514 For drinks, I ordered ripe Mango Shake! My favorite! 128522128076🏼 I just really felt cold after drinking it 10052

The waitress kept on suggesting their Crispy Pata, lol, maybe next time we'll try that 128522

It was quite pricy but I think it was worth it 128522

I feel like I'm not fully qualified to write this review, after having only eaten here twice or thrice. Anywayyyy...the atmosphere at this place is very homey. Like being at an old Spanish house with your Grandparents. (Who I may or may not have eaten here with in the past.) The food is flavourful. Their desserts are quite something. The doors for their toilets are quite heavy though and hard to slide. You were warned.

The Banana Chocolate Volcano is oh so pretty! The combination of the sugar-glazed banana slices on top of the not-so-sweet chocolate cake with rich chocolate filling was just perfect. The creamy sauce complemented the cake very well. And best if all, it was served warm. This is definitely my favorite dessert here at Lorenzo's Way. 10084

Ate dinner here with our bosses. We ordered bamboo rice, diliscious rice, paella valenciana, bulalo, knockdown knuckles, adobo ni lola ising, binukadkad na pla-pla and the vegetable spring rolls. The bulalo and pla-pla lacked flavor. Adobo, knuckles and the spring rolls were really good. The rest of the orders were ok.

I was here for a family dinner as we had a balikbayan relative in town. We ordered a bunch of items to share:

Beef caldereta - plus points for the meat being very tender, but I thought it lacked oomph. I love caldereta dishes that have a little spice, this one wasn't.

Crispy pata - best dish I tried, the order size was quite generous, the meat wasn't dry, and the skin very crispy

Shrimps in aligue sauce - the sauce had coconut milk mixed in so I couldn't try it as I'm allergic to coconut milk :( looked quite nice though, plus the shrimps were pretty big and looked tender

Kare kare with bagoong - as with the caldereta, I loved that the meat was so tender. But again I thought the sauce was so-so and a bit bland. The peanut flavour didn't really come out.

I ordered the Kamias Crush as my drink, again a disappointment... It tasted very watered down, hardly any flavour of Kamias let alone any hint of its sour flavour. I miss Cafe Bola's kamias shake!!! :(

Their paella is one of the best. I also liked their mussel soup. Price range of PhP 400-600 per person.

I like bringing foreign guests here. Food quality is consistent and servings are good for big groups. The selection of Pinoy classics is always great as an "intro to Filipino cuisine."

Despedida lunch last week with the whole team for one of our colleagues. We originally reserved a table at Mesa, but it's so hot and they can only provide outside seating so we moved to Lorenzo's Way.

Here's what we ordered. Sorry, I can only comment on the ones that I ate. Haha!

✅ Binukadkad na Pla Pla- yummy! Crispy and without the "malansa" taste. 128522
➖ Gambas- it was okay.. But it's a bit salty for my taste.
✅ Crispy pata- pretty good! Cholesterol, hello.

We also got the following but I didn't get to taste 'em.

🔹 Gising-gising - we had lots of leftovers of this one so I'm guessing it was just okay. Recipes pa rin!
🔹 Kare kare - I don't eat this talaga. So pass 128517
🔹 Squid rings- their version of calamares

Sorry for the crappy photo! Sneaky eh. 128540

The only legit dish we had here was their Costillas de Ternera Guisada. And it was GOOD. The beef was so tender that it seems to melt on your mouth. They had some very awesome, awesome sauce. 128076

The other dishes we had were from Bistro Remedios (sister resto of theirs) which were good too. Pricewise, it's a tad expensive but definitely good for family get togethers.

This is part of the LCJ group of restos that include Abe, Fely J, Cafe Adriatico, Cafe Havana, & Larry's Cafe & bar. They serve all kinds of Pinoy favorites with their own twist on it. A highlight is the halaan soup with buco & sili leaves, a bit sweetish that's not too empowering. A constant favorite here is the crispy baby squid, binuladkad na pla pla.

Tried their topblade with mashed potatoes for a change. While it was presentable, it ends there. The meat was kind of tough & dry. It seems that it kinulang sa tenderizer or the meat is not tenderloin. Oh well, will stick to favorites like the sugpo sa aligue, kare-kare. Oh, when you come here, try their bamboo rice! Sarap!
