Restaurant Review : Ortego's Deli

Ortego's Deli is a Filipino restaurant which started operating mid of 2014, and I would say that it definitely made a huge buzz not just in Filipino community but with other nationalities as well. I made some online research and found out that it is operated by Straw Group which none of its bosses is Filipino. It is quite amusing that they made an excellent job in serving authentic Filipino dishes and homey Filipino ambiance.

I've been there for couple of times and it was extremely high-end experience with superb food, great choices in the menu, small yet lovely space and friendly and very attentive staff.

Chicken Tower is one of their talked about dishes. Well, no question about it, it is surely one of my personal favorite as well. Four cuts of grilled barbecue chicken served with unlimited rice for 3 persons, and not to forget their savory sauce that will surely tickle your taste buds and ask for more.

Chicken Binakol is definitely one of their original in the menu. It is similar to chicken tinola with a twist of coconut juice and meat on it which blended a slightly sweet taste to the dish.

I've tried plenty others from their menu like, sizzling sisig na bangus, seafood kilawin, beef sisig omelet, sizzling bulalo steak and their pansit bihon guisado.  All of these are truly appetizing, affordable, and I would love to try some other dishes on my next visit.

To sum it up, food are definitely great and were served fast. Staff were well-trained, friendly and and very helpful, though they could add some more staff to attend to increasingly demanding customers. Parking is a bit difficult but it is very common in this country, I guess. Lastly, it would be really nice if they could have a bigger space otherwise everything is just perfect as it is :). It was indeed an excellent dining experience.
