I’ve been wanting to try the food at Órale! for the longest time but somehow it always slips my mind with all the new restaurants popping up here and there. It was a miracle that I finally remembered it a few weeks ago.
We first tried two Margaritas, one traditional and one frozen. We all liked the frozen one better although the other one had more kick to it.

I really liked the burrito. It was very flavorful specially the barbacoa or roast beef. The best part was the ratio of meat, beans and sauce was just perfect with the rice. I also appreciated the filling was not wet and soggy like in other Mexican restaurants in Manila.
I’ve never had Mexican style lengua before and let me tell you it was fantabulous!!! I ate my taco bare just like what you see in the picture below. The ox tongue was so tender and seasoned just right. This was my favorite of all. I can’t wait to try the lengua in an enchilada or burrito next time.
People of Manila let me introduce you to the best nachos I’ve eaten so far. It was simple with just pieces of grilled beef, salsa, refried beans, cheese and sour cream but the taste was out of this world. The whole plate was warmed up in the salamander until the cheese melted. If I didn’t eat anything else I could finish an order just by myself since I LOVE nachos. I wonder if I could persuade them to put lengua on my nachos?

I don’t really know what this sauce was and which dish it came with but we used it as a dip for the tortilla chips and it was a pleasant surprise. It tasted like sun dried tomatoes and lots of spices.
For days after I couldn’t stop thinking about our meal. I kept finding opportunities to go back since I loved the food so much. I may be late in the discovering Órale! but I’m glad I did. I will most definitely be back. Again and again and again.
