Filipino Dishes At Its Best At Orange Karenderia

We are a nation of food lovers and we want our food not only to be delicious but also to be affordable. That is why many of us are fond of eating at canteens or karenderias because food served there is usually tasty and cheap. We can have a satisfying meal with under a hundred bucks. With so many of us tightening our belts because of the high cost of living, this helps a lot. Plus, they are easily accessible since we can find them almost anywhere. Having said that, wouldn’t it be nice to dine in an unassuming place much like a karenderia with food that is sumptuous (if not more) and affordable but in a setting that is nicer and more relaxing?

You can do so at Orange Karenderia, a restaurant which showcases Filipino dishes that everyone can enjoy. Unlike a karenderia, you do not need to line up in the counter and pick out your orders. Instead, you will be assisted to your table and a waiter will attend to your needs and get your orders. The menu is posted on blackboards above the counter. You will have to let your eyes wander around the area just in case you missed something from the options available.

I like the resto’s simple industrial-themed interior. It is well-lit, spacious, and a painting by Bacolod artist Nunelucio Alvarado figures prominently in the right wall.
