I have previously been disappointed by the lack of good Filipino restaurants in Singapore, so I was very happy to have finally tried out Bonifacio in Kreta Ayer Road around China Town. Finally tasted some note-worthy traditional Filipino dishes here in Singapore which remind me of home.
First up is the Fresh Lumpiang Hinirang (SGD 6.95). This is a crepe filled with bamboo shoots, carrots, and french beans topped with a peanut sauce. The vegetables were fresh and crispy, and I thought the sauce was reminiscent of how my grandmother used to make this dish.

One thing I love and miss back home is Filipino barbecue. I know I am being biased, but I believe nothing comes close to Filipino barbecue. So I was very happy to have tried the Pork Barbecue (SGD 9.95) in Bonifacio which was really enjoyable. The pork actually tasted like steak! Though I would not consider the marinade completely traditional, the overall taste was spot on.

Overall I can say that Bonifacio is one of the better Filipino restaurants in Singapore. I enjoyed everything except the Sisig. Pricing is very decent, and I definitely see myself coming back to try out the rest of their menu.
