Bonifacio

AsianFilipino
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.

Great Quality / Price...but order before

Filipina food...did not usually sound exciting ;) ... but this is a good place to change your mind.

If you do not order before...you are going to wait a lot

At lunch time, you really have to order or it takes 30mn minimum before you get your food.

Good service, nice people, variety of food, almost 100% home-made, great value.

Better for group dinner / lunch.

Great Filipino Food

This is one of the better Filipino restaurants I've been to in Singapore. "Hits" for this visit were the Fresh Lumpiang Hinirang (SGD 6.95), Pork Barbecue (SGD 9.95), and Daing na Bangus (SGD 26.95). The only "miss" was their Pork Sisig, which I thought was rather tasteless and soggy.
