ORANGE WHISK is a labor of love of Chef Isaiah Ortega and fiancée Pastry Chef Korinne Lirio, located inside the Better Living subdivision in Bicutan. They specialize in chewy buns, continental dishes, and one of the best adobos in town. :)
I was hesitant to visit this at first because there aren't that many quality restos in the south and most I've been to before were just okay. It's nice to know this isn't one of them...
Orange Whisk is located along Michael Rua St. in Better Living. This street is along the shortcut route going from Bicutan to Sucat.
ORANGE WHISK MENU: Starters, Soups and Salads | Pizza, Pasta and Sandwiches | Rice Meals, Filipino Main Dishes | International Dishes, Extra | Beverages, Coffee & Tea | White Wines, Sparkling Wines | Red Wines | OFF THE MENU
They offer their award-winning Filipino dishes and continental gourmet dishes.
The soup was made from scratch. It's creamy and a little bit peppery.
Really enjoyed the plump noodles with the red-white sauce combination. The boys loved this. :)
One of the best adobos I've tasted this year! They use a blue ginger called langkawas or galangal, which has a very distinct aftertaste and commonly used as a spice in Thai cuisine, which is a great balancing flavor for the adobo. The liempo meat is very soft with just the right amount of fat.
The mahi-mahi was roasted well on the outside but a bit dry on the inside. It still tasted good but was just too creamy, which defeats the purpose of ordering a healthier alternative.
TIP: Order the cream on the side so it doesn't overpower the flavor of the fish.
This was very good, too. I appreciate the time it took to cook and present this dish well. The pork belly steak though was too lean. I was looking for a little more marbling of fat between the meat.
...but the best is their signature chewy bun pandesal, which is perfect with coffee. :)
This is one of the best restos in the south and worth the drive if you are in the area. The exit to Bicutan is a bit traffic on weekdays, so best to go on weekends or Mondays. :)
Don't forget to order the Chewy Bun and the Adobong Liempo sa Langkawas. The food is prepared when you order and the Chefs are always at the restaurant to prepare it for you.
Budget is P500/head + toll fee to Bicutan.

P.S. I think their wine selection can still be improved and it would be nice if they also offered a signature drink to enhance the overall dining experience. :)
