Bonifacio Revisited

Bonifacio - Bayan Ko

6th July 2011. Written by Xin Li.
It has been a while since I visited Bonifacio. This time, we initially wanted to bring Liang Wei who was back from London to Candlenut Kitchen for some Peranakan Cuisine. However, upon discovery that the prices at Candlenut Kitchen has went up quite a bit, Vinleon and Yew Ann opted for Bonifacio.

It was crowded that night and there a group celebrating a birthday and a live performance is going on. We had the last serving of Chicken Inasal available.

Bonifacio - Chicken Inasal

The Chicken Inasal, Grilled Half Chicken Marinated in Annatto Oil was as good as the last time I had it. Tender and flavourful.

Bonifacio - Squid

We also ordered the Squid, Grilled Squid Stuffed with Onions and Tomatoes was served Well-Done or Medium (to our surprise). We had it medium which turned out to be too raw for our taste. Yew Ann is especially unhappy with the Squid.

Bonifacio - Bayan Ko

The Bayan Ko, Eggplant Omelette with Minced Pork was not what we expected visually. “omelette” is a deceiving description. It was more like a minced meat pudding of some sort. Soft, melt-in-your-mouth and appetizing dish.

Bonifacio - Nilagang Baka

The winner of the day goes to the hearty and all-rounded Nilagang Baka, Beef Stew Served with Corn, Potato and Bokchoy. The beef was very tender and the soup is really good. Has a pleasant beefy aftertaste and surprisingly light.

Bonifacio - Garlic Rice

We ordered some Garlic Rice to consume together with the main dishes. The garlic rice is slightly disappointing; it was just plain rice with sautéed, chopped garlic bits.

Unlike the last time, the place was very lively and the food has hits and misses. I enjoyed the Nilagang Baka the most. There is a Makan Deals $10 for $25 voucher at
