Two thumbs up overall.. masarap!!!!
I ordered lunch from Boracay Garden via Clubfeast and it was a good experience! Pre-pandemic, I dined in here with my friends and it was amazing! I can not forget the flavoring each dish had and how yummy everything was. O R D E R E D - Chicken Adobo with Rice - Lechon with Rice V E R D I C T I think I still prefer dining in [duh] because I get to eat my food right away and something about dining is just more welcoming. Both the meat in the abodo and lechon tasted a bit drier this time, but usually it isn't, so that threw me off a bit. When I did dine in tho, I ordered their sinagang and that was my fav along with their bistek. Next time, I will want to order their oxtail soup for sure, along with their fresh green mango shake!
One star because the bulalo soup was actually good ,but the reason why I gave it one star was because I found a hair on my pinakbet and that shitt was disgusting...so disappointing at this place!
All your favorite filipino dishes are found here. Delicious!
We used to come here to dine in before COVID, and it was always a great dinner with great service! Recently, we've been doing take out (because of COVID) and I must say, the food is still excellent. Our favorite dishes to order: Bangus Sisig: This is THE BEST bangus sisig I've had! This is a MUST order here. The serving is HUGE, full of meat, very flavorful, and just AMAZING. Perfect with a side of white rice. Chicken Adobo: Good chicken adobo! Flavorful sauce, potatoes are good, and they usually use dark meat, so it has a lot of flavor. Kare Kare: Really good Kare Kare. Meat is tender, peanut sauce is flavorful (and very peanut-y). No complaints. Lumpia Shanghai: How can you not love this? Fried to perfection, good ratio of meat inside. Addicting. We love coming here whenever we've craving Filipino food. The wait is never long and people are friendly there. We will continue to come here (especially for that Bangus Sisig)!
I ordered through Uber Eats for our lunch today, and was not too happy with what I received. I've known them for having really good food, and have been a loyal customer for years, but something just changed today. I ordered: Pinakbet - 5 stars as always Kare Kare - 4 stars because there aren't a lot of meat/veggies included, plus, it came in 1 container. I'm just used to getting the meat and veggies in separate containers. Crispy Binagoongan - 3 stars because it was too soupy and tasted more like Sauteed Lechon Kawali. It lacked the bagoong flavor and there was just too much undercooked tomatoes and onions. Pancit Miki Bihon - 3 stars because it tasted a little bit too salty and dry. I'm not sure what happened but it was made differently today. It's a family favorite, so today's taste came in as a surprise. Seafood Black Rice - 0 stars because instead of getting Seafood Black Rice, they sent me Seafood Palabok. Thankfully, the issue was resolved immediately and a was refund issued per Uber standards. And when I called the restaurant, I was advised to just enjoy the wrong order of Seafood Palabok after apologizing. But if I were to comment on the Seafood Palabok, it's not the same taste or presentation as I remembered it. It was dry and a little too salty as well. But this is just for today. I'm hoping that it'll be better with my future orders. I'm willing to give them another chance because I've enjoyed their meals all these years. I guess, today was just a bad day! I'll still give them a total of 4 stars because of their exemplary customer service as always. I've attached the pictures for reference.
My first time trying filipino food and definitely not my last! So happy my first stop in SF was at Boracay. Pictured is the lechon, lumpia, and beef teriyaki. The lechon was a really nice mix of crispy and fatty, the sauce that came with really made the meal for me! For dessert, we had turon which is a fried dough with ube and banana inside. This came with a side of mango ice cream which complemented the warm turon really nicely. Service was great and attentive as well.
The owners and staff are very nice. Clean and food is always excellent!
The food is honestly great. Flavor was spot on and food came out in a timely manner. However, the place does get packed at times and this place needs to regulate distancing and letting people wait outside regardless if it is cold. Not to mention, some of the servers aren't very attentive. It takes a very loud, "EXCUSE ME" to even get their attention as though they don't really want to pay attention to new orders or requests. It's very annoying. Otherwise, the food was great. I just wish the service and vibe and overall ambience of the restaurant was more friendly and welcoming. Definitely come on a non-busy day and try out the calamari and the bagoong-smothered rice with the tomatoes and mango topping. You will not be disappointed if your palate likes freshness with savory.
Filipino food was delicious, staff were helpful and nice. My favorite was the garlic rice and pancit. Our Filipino friends say this one of the best in the neighborhood. Their fried pork was also tasty and moist.
Tasteless food, nilaga if you can call it that was just plain awful. Only the waiter was great.
This was my first time here. This filipino spot has it all! Great food, great ambiance, great service!! I ordered my fave, kare kare, and the oxtail and tripe and vegetables were tender and the sauce didn't just taste oily or watery from a mix. It tasted peanut buttery like it's supposed to taste like, so it was great spreading it all over my steamed white rice. Their signature mango drink was very refreshing and also tasty. My friend liked her scallop scampi. I thought their prices were reasonable, considering you're getting back lots of good food, the ambiance, and service. From the appearance of the restaurant inside, it looked very authentic like being back in the Philippines in a bamboo shack with bamboo-like walls, very colorful. I and my friend were never ignored--servers kept nicely asking us if we were ok or needed anything else and refilled our glasses of iced water. I even asked for glasses of iced water even though we had drinks and they responded promptly with them. This is one FILIPINO RESTAURANT to go to for GREAT SERVICE!!
Always good spot. Super awesome they have in dinning now! The ox tail caldereta, inihow Liverpool, and authentic sisig is a must try! Lots of parking too!
Service was good though!!!! But all foods that we ordered when we were there 2 weeks ago and we got there when it was almost closing time, anyways! The pork sisig was old hard and so dark!!!! And so much onions??? (Did i paid for so much onions???LOL!!!!) and seems like they just reheated it? Hhhm. The only food that didnt disappoint me a bit was the crab rice!!!! Coming back if you ask? Maybe not again!!!
Food is great but customer service is terrible. I called the day before Easter for food pickup the next day. The person I spoke to got my number, my name, (I even spelled it) my orders and time I will pick it up. When I got there the next day to pick up my food, the waiter told me they don't accept day before orders. They could not find my orders. What the heck!! Who then I spoke to? I'm so disappointed to you, Boracay!! I will share this to my family and friends to warn them!
