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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

* I was invited to review the food. I did not pay for my meal. However, the free meal did not in any way sway my opinion and everything you read here is MY PERSONAL OPINION.
