Gensan Tastebud: Orange Bistro

by Tanchi | 11:14 PM in , |

Mouth-watering dishes- this is the main goal of Ms. Cathy Teng, who runs Lagao Road's savoring food experience, Orange Bistro.

The restaurant's perfect location, Lagao road, make in and out visitors of Gensan come along, the fact that Lagao is an exit road of the city leading to Davao and Sarangani Province.

There are so many comfortable restaurants around the city, but Orange Bistro would still be one of my favorite restaurant here in Gensan. The soothing place and mild lightnings topped my reasons why I keep on coming back for a more well-deserved meal on Orange Bistro.

Last Saturday, Gensan Plurkers decided to meet-up again, or more preferably called, Plurkfiesta, along with a warm-welcoming of a Davao Blogger and Plurker, Mr. Blogie Robillo, who went for his 2-day vacation on Gensan.

Orange Bistro always served good shots of foods. When our random order arrived, it was indeed, well-arranged platters.

Served in front of me was a platter of Nachos dipped in well-applied dose of cheese savors. Preparing Nachos are easy but on that case, the combination of its cheese dip and the crisp Nacho is a good way to start your meal. It is definitely a must-try for all dining at Orange Bistro.

A line of Chicharong Bulaklak (Fried Pork Intestine) is all set for a pinch of vinegar to soak with. I'm much of a Chicaron (Pork Skin) eater than with those Chicharon which mainly consist of Pork Intestine, but to my excitement, I've decided to take dip some crispy part of it into vinegar. It was the intense taste of the vinegar and the Pork Intestine itself which led me for another shot of it.

Spaghetti and Angel's Hair were unique in different ways, but it would have been a same approach since the two are both pasta, but Angel's Hair is quite different from what I expected it to be with the sweet taste of Spaghetti. It is very much similar in terms of it's appearance, but Angel's Hair had other unforgettable taste and a soothing aroma.

Ever tried an Iced Tea with a drip of Orange fruit extract? It was the first time I tried to extract two slices of Orange fruit and the blending was quite far from the expected taste of the drink. There was a mild-sourness when I tried sipping it, and as it pass through I took over a taste of sweetness, better yet, the original taste of the Iced Tea.

Since the place is located just beside the highway, I'm sure travelers would be seeing much of an Orange Bistro comfortable site, and their function room just beside the dining proper of the place. Start visiting the place now, and who knows, this might be a new thrill for you to share with.

Orange Bistro is located at Lagao Road, General Santos City.
