Ever since the man behind the once-popular Tequila Joe's opened Ristras, a Mexican Revival has swept Manila and has led to the opening of really good Mexican restaurants (Tex-Mex, Cal-Mex, and other Mexican variations) in the metro. The market has even come to accept buying really good burritos at the P250-P300 range.
One of Manila's recent favorites is the home-style Mexican place in the Fort Strip called Órale!, which is named after the Mexican expression for "OK!" or "Alright!" or the slang for "Hell yeah!" or "Right On!"
The husband and wife team of Nikki and Lexandra Confiado did a great job of creating a street food-inspired taqueria from Mexico and Northern California.
