Tucked in a corner of Bonifacio High Street is Lorenzo’s Way, a Filipino-Spanish restaurant from respected restaurateur Larry J. Cruz.
Lorenzo’s Way boasts of offering the best dishes from the late LJC’s famous restaurants Cafe Adriatico, Cafe Havana, Abe, and Fely J’s.
The Filipiniana interior is complemented by the relaxed ambience that invites you to leave the long, tiring day behind to come home to a satisfying meal.
And boy, was I glad. It was a long, tiring, holiday-traffic commute from Ortigas to High Street. Good thing we had a reservation because the place quickly filled up for 7 PM dinner time.
Since our friends were late and we were famished, my best friend Tinay and I decided to go ahead and eat. We ordered our all-time favorite Paella Valenciana and decided to try their Binukadkad na Pla-Pla since every single table in Lorenzo’s Way had it and we were not disappointed.
Our friends eventually made it and they ordered Spanish Garlic Chicken which I failed to take a photo of but they said it was delicious as well.
I pledged not to rant in this blog so I’m just going to chalk up the less-than-great service to the holiday craziness. All in all, making our way to Lorenzo’s Way was worth it.
Will we go back? Not any time soon.
Do I recommend it? Yes but with the gusto of someone who was satisfied but not blown away.
