Food Trip: Loriekot’s Lutong Bahay

I am not sure from whom did I hear about Loriekot’s Lutong Bahay — but it must be from Facebook. And the more baffling fact was I only visited the place on it’s first year anniversary! It must be because it’s located near the central business district where Filipino restaurants doesn’t seem to have had the luck to survive. Luckily, Loriekot’s defied all odds and celebrated it’s first year last Saturday. In fact, it caught Oi Magazine‘s eye and even printed an article about this Filipino venture.

So one time during lunch at the office, I decided to try it out. And honestly, I had a difficult time choosing from the menu. They had a list of well-loved Filipino dishes that I’ve been craving for a long time! I am no masterchef so I can hardly recreate most of the dishes in their menu. And they deliver, so joy of joys! And I ordered in Filipino of course so it was a breeze!

Spending most of my school life along Katipunan Road in Quezon City where Chicken Bacolod was found — not sure if it’s still there — I always get to try their delicious Chicken Inasal. Keeping my fingers crossed, I ordered that dish for lunch.

Encouraged, my friends and I ordered lunch from them for our “meeting”. We had Chicken Inasal, Sisig, Palabok, Laing, Barbecue, Halo-Halo, and Leche Flan.

We decided to drop by at their restaurant on our Saturday Bike Ride.

The restaurant was designed like a typical carinderia in the Philippines. This even had a bigger space I think.

I tell you, this place fills up with Pinoys during meal times. It is a wonder that there are so much Pinoys in Ho Chi Minh City! If I see you during Mass, especially in Notre Dame Cathedral, don’t get mad if I don’t seem to acknowledge you. There are just so many Pinoys and I’m bad with faces!

We arrived bright and early at 7:30 am for breakfast and of course had to order Tapsilog — a combination of beef (TApa), Fried Rice (SInangag), and Egg (itLOG) and Dasilog — Fried Salted Fish (DAing).

We loved the breakfast meals! It was well worth the ride actually!

For the other food in the menu, I think these should be consumed in house as the flavor tends to fade during time of delivery. And some should be served piping hot like the Sisig.

If you’re craving for some Pinoy dishes, Loriekot’s is a must try. 😉
