As the waiters gave us the menu, we asked which their specialties are. House specialties include Costillas de Ternera Guisada, Spanish Garlic Chicken, and Paella Valenciana. Among the three, we tried two of their specialties and other dishes.
Costillas de Ternera Guisada
Beef Braised short ribs slow cooked in Red Wine Sauce. The beef was braised in its own brown sauce with red wine, onion, carrots olives and peas, which has been cooked to perfection. The red wine gives a balance on the sauce, which makes rich tasting gravy. The beef is so tender that it will give a melt-in-mouth feeling. The flavors of the beef are evident on the sauce, which will go well with rice on your plate. Serving size for solo is Php 395.00. Rating: 4.5/5
Spanish Garlic Chicken
Boneless Chicken thighs seasoned and baked in olive oil and garlic cloves. The chicken is baked crispy on the outside and juicy and succulent on the inside. The dish is served with a lot of garlic cloves, which is roasted. The garlic cloves give an aromatic and sweet flavor when you spread it on the chicken. The dish also goes well with rice. Serving size for solo is Php 365.00. Rating: 3/5

Well marbled spare ribs with their special Barbeque sauce and fries. The spare ribs were grilled to perfection- cooked throroughtly but very soft and juicy. Also gives a melt-in-mouth feeling. Serving size for solo is Php. 265.00.Rating: 4/5
Sauteed water spinach topped with lechon kawali It is basically the classic adobong kangkong with a twist because it is topped with our favorite lechon kawali. The whole dish was good and well seasoned, when you bite into the pork it is crispy at the same time, soft and tender, eating it will remind you of home Inihaw na Liempo Grilled liempo paired with atchara (pickled unripe papaya) and soy sauce dip. Same with the other dishes in LW’s menu, it is special because it gives you the taste of home. Rating: 3.5/5

a definitely MUST TRY at Lorenzo’s Way. The typical baklava is crunchy but Lorenzo’s way made it a bit different- soft wet pastry and has a mochi texture on the outside- Made of walnut and pistachios, honey and topped with confectioners’ sugar and vanilla ice cream. The baklava isn’t too sweet nor under seasoned. One word to describe – Perfection. Baklava is available for Php 250. Rating: 5/5
Same taste as the normal avocado shake. But the twist is the vanilla ice cream flavor on top to make the taste better.
Lorenzo’s Way is a happy Tribute to the man behind some of the country’s finest restaurants and cafés. The pioneer in theme and concept restaurants, Lorenzo “Larry” J. Cruz, created and established restaurants, cafés, and bistros with dishes that caught the fancy taste of the people.
