O'Railey's Grand Opening


Finally, it happened.

It took a couple of months but on a Monday evening in April 2012, O'Raileys Dine and Coffee officially opened its door to the public by having an official launch. Yours truly was invited and of course, FM was my plus one. R and V also tagged along.

Rochelle and Eric greeted us soon as we got there but unfortunately, we weren't able to chat because they were extremely busy which was a good indication since it was their opening night.

They had a MAC set up for the night wherein if customers would visit their page and like it, they get a free mini cupcake. If they tweet about it on the spot, they would also get a cupcake.

We finally got around to ordering after taking photos of the place and admiring how cozy it was. We ordered sandwiches, rice meals, pasta, buffalo wings, and milk teas.

Caramel, Hazelnut, Wintermelon Milk Tea

The milk tea concoction used by O'Raileys is not something that is store bought. These are actual concoctions of Rochelle. She formulated these milk teas and for someone who knows her milk tea, I can definitely tell you that their milk tea is one of the best that I have ever tasted.

I already had high expectations since I down milk teas on a daily basis but when I tried their milk tea, I simply fell in love.

creamy carbonara
To say that this was creamy would be an understatement. The pasta was al dente, the creaminess of the sauce just right, and the combination of everything simply indulgent. For less than Php200, this is worth the money spent.  

buffalo wings

The spice hits you first ... more than anything it is the spiciness of the chicken. After, its the smooth taste and you realize that what hits you at first simply wakes you up to a more indulgent taste. The inside of the chicken is cooked just right and not spicy at all. There could be hints but overall, the chicken was as it should be ... TASTY.

sisig
The sisig was another one of the owners own special recipe. It wasn't dry but had a bit of sauce in it and it wasn't as crispy as the usual sisig but it was actually really very good. V finished 2 cups of rice and 3/4 of the sisig. It was THAT good.

chicken panini
This was one of the best surprise of the night. The chicken panini was crunchy, not too oily, and the combination of this with the blue cheese dressing was AWESOME. It was simply divine. It was the only dish that I wanted to eat by myself and not share with anyone. It was OH SO GOOD. I love chickens in general but this one, I wanted to keep to myself.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend going to O'Raileys Dine and Coffee if you happen to be in Mindanao or Congressional Avenue. It is worth every peso spent and the interiors are very cozy. Truth be told, their Raspberry Mocha is way better than Starbucks and the food selection is wider.

Congratulations to Rochelle and Eric for a successful endeavor in the food business and I hope that you'll have many more branches for this one. It's worth a visit.

  9. What a sumptuous review dear! Although Congressional is still in the QC vicinity, it's still too far from my place.. but if I do get the chance to pass by the area, I will make sure to sample their exquisite looking food, and of course Rochelle's milk tea! I love milk tea too, especially Gong Cha's creations. =)

  12. The milk tea concoction in a row of glasses are talking: "take us, take!"

    "But kids, you are so far away from Cavite. Someday, when I visit QC, we shall be finally together."

  13. I was taken aback when I read MINDANAO, alas, it was Mindanao
    Avenue, to bad 'cause I was already convinced in going to O'Raileys. I am always in the look out for the best sisig in the world. The current one on my top list is here in Davao. =)

  15. Hmmm...I have lactose intolerance is milk tea okay?

    When I was in Cebu in 2008 I made C2 as my water, what happened when I went home. I got gastritis...

    So I am hesitant to try this milk tea...instead I am addicted to frappe lately.

  23. I've had this love and hate relationship with milk teas. Sometimes their okay for my taste, sometimes the opposite, maybe it depends on where I get the milk tea? (I'm a shameless coffee lover)

    Anyway that creamy carbonara looks promising. As for the sisig tho, I prefer the crunchy ones, I prefer it toasted to a point that it's almost like chicharon :D
