A Hidden Gem: Orange Whisk Restaurant & Patisserie

On our way to attend a wedding, my fiance and I were driving around Betterliving Subdivision in Paranaque when we got lost even with Google Maps on our phone! All the directions keep leading us to dead ends in the middle of residences. With hungry tummies, we were searching on a place to have lunch when our car passed Michael Rua Street and saw this small restaurant which says it is "Home of the Best Chewy Buns!"
That's the reflection of me and fiance.
Without a second thought, we parked the car and went down to check out this orange, white and black place! Inside the restaurant, there were no customers but we didn't care because we were starving! We went in and saw a board which has their menu of hot meals written on it.
The hand-written Off-the-Menu specials
Since my fiance and I were both hungry, without thinking, we ordered their Chewy Buns right away since they were readily available to fill our hungry tummies!
The Chewy Buns
The Chewy Buns can be heated before eating or eaten right away. Being so hungry, we didn't care anymore and just ate it as it is! It is crusty on the outside as shown in the photo above and very chewy. The bun is sweet with a hint of salty and buttery taste. The spaces inside the bun are filled with the salty and buttery flavor.

Since it was so good, my fiance and I can't help but order more! Within 10 minutes, I think we were able to finish 8 buns! We also tried it heated and it was a lot better because after chewing a bit, the bun just slowly melts in your mouth!

Aside from their very yummy and special Chewy Buns, they serve a variety of cuisine in their menu. I wasn't able to take the details of the full menu because of my hunger but I was able to take some parts which have caught my attention.


Deep Fried Chicken Wings are crispy outside with a very flavorful and juicy inside. You'll noticed some orange dots on the crispy part because of custard which has made this chicken flavorful.

A closer look. Can you see the orange spots?
I also love their chicken's plate! It's fancy and makes food look more palatable which in turn makes one want to eat everything on it!!

The Basil Pesto Pasta just smells so good as it made its way to our table. My fiance and I can't help but notice the generous portion of pesto. Orange Whisk uses bucatini which is quite interesting to eat. They are pasta which look like little straws that has a bit of sauce inside which makes each bite filled with pesto! 

The purple leaf on top is called micro amaranth which is edible and a wonderful pop of color that made the presentation of this dish beautiful.

The heart shaped little greens are micro arugula. Don't be fooled by these small heart shaped beauties! Even they're small, they're packed with flavor!

Beef Salpicao is Filipino-styled beef steak cooked in soy sauce and garlic. Orange Whisk uses beef tenderloin tips for this dish and it comes with rice. The serving of beef tenderloin is very generous. Even if I have already finished my rice, I still had so much beef tenderloin. Since it's the tenderloin part, the beef is very soft and melts in your mouth!

US Steak Onglet is something to look forward to in this restaurant! True to its name, the steak is really imported from the US which can be distinguished by its texture and taste. It's soft, tender and infused with flavor! I also love the fact that that it's perfectly cook the way me and my fiance love it: Medium! Even without gravy, it's already so good on its own.

The mash potato side dish is also to die for! It's creamy with baby carrots and mushroom. The micro arugula adds an additional aromatic kick.

This Buko (coconut) Lychee Sorbet can take the taste of meat away from your mouth and breathe! It's smooth and sweet that will tickle the palette with its lightness.

Since this restaurant is also a patisserie, there were lots of other baked goodies to choose from as dessert! You may also buy and bring it home to eat later on!
I bought this and brought it home! My brother love how chewy and buttery the cookies are!

Red Velvet Cupcake (so lovely!)

As its name says, the motif of the place is orange with touches of white, black and gray.

it's a Tip Box!

These 3 chefs are the ones who made our dining experience in Orange Whisk very comfortable and wonderful! We loved talking to them about how they've prepared each dish! They're very accommodating and friendly. Also, we learned that they have just opened the restaurant this month of June!
