Discreetly tucked away among shophouses, diners here can’t help but feel like they were the first to discover the place. Named after a Philippine revolutionary, Bonifacio sets the bar for Filipino restaurants in Singapore with its clean, spotless interiors, modern artworks and two efficient wait staff.

Filipino food is a wonderful secret here in Singapore. There are very few restaurants and even fewer who make the food this good. Bonifacio is named after the Filipino hero Bonifacio who I believe rebelled against the Spanish after studying in Europe.
The staff here are all friendly and there is typically one or two tables still available each time we go. They sometimes have live music but I've never been here for it.
We have tried a number of their dishes buy my personal favorite is their tokwat baboy. This dish has crispy deep fried pork belly and crispy deep fried tofu mixed with a thin sauce of soy sauce and vinegar plus bell peppers and onions. This is what this dish should taste like, just perfect.
Their kare kare is good but made with pork belly again instead of oxtail like it should. Their sinigang tastes salty and sour and their sisig is good but not as good as kamayan.
offering filipino cuisine in a charming shophouse of dark wood interior flooring, i love the warm service provided by bonifacio. my dining companion and i ordered the tender chicken binakol soup that is filled with chicken chunks, sliced coconut and chinese cabbage. a fusion of chinese and filipino i presume. pretty tasty soup broth that is memorable and i cant help going for seconds. the prices are reasonable too.
Filipino food must be one of the most underrated and unknown cuisines in food mad Singapore. Bonifacio offers Singaporeans a well-priced opportunity to learn more about this surprisingly delectable cuisine, with signature dishes such as the pate pate (their take on the German pork knuckle) and one of Singapore's finest arrays of desserts amongst restaurants in this price bracket. From the custard flan to the boni-halo-halo, we challenge you to find a single Bonifacio dessert that is less than scrumptious. Owned by a trio of friends that includes a former Singapore wushu national champ, Bonifacio offers great value for money food in a classy restaurant atmosphere. Try something different, and take your friends, colleagues, family or even your date here. If your experience was anything like ours, you will never feel the same way about Filipino cuisine again.
