Pinamalayan is lucky to have outstanding and most visited restaurants in Oriental Mindoro, and I am proud to introduce Onin’s Grill as one of them. Well, my relationship with Onin’s Grill runs deeply because the people behind this grill were my ninong and ninang. Yay! Thus, my family was one of the witnesses of how this restaurant started until it succeeded.
Talking about the look inside, Onin’s Grill provides customers with an ambiance that is perfect for a typical get together. Since it is an open place, the breeze is just a perfect companion for dining.
We have eaten here quite a number of times whenever celebrations, meetings, bonding or food trips come around. We just love their foods and their generous servings. Honestly, I guess, we had tried almost all of their delicacies and weren’t able to choose our order immediately. All of them seems great. That’s why we call my ninang to order for us and serve us their best of the best.
Honey Glazed Spare
Honey Glazed Spare – the ever favorite Onin’s Grill food. It seems that our table isn’t full without either honey glazed spare or baby back ribs. I can’t explain it. I don’t know why because all I know is that we love this dish ever since it was first served in this grill. Try it and maybe you’ll know.
Sauce with a delicious meaty flavor plus chunks of tender beef equals perfection. Since the beef is chopped into chunks, the extremely flavorful sauce seeped into the meat that made the combination really great. This is the reason why we left the eating house with no more leftover in this plate.
Calling the attention of all the vegetarians out there, please proceed to Onin’s Grill and look for vegetarian stirfry which will surely make you crave. As you can see in the photo, it looks yummy, at the same time, healthy. What more if it’s actually in front of you and what most if you are munching it.
For us, food trip will never be complete if we don’t have a vegetable salad because it’s the only food that my mother eats. If not, then mostly. No need to elaborate more on the taste. It was basically like that of vegetable salad. But we love it because of the balanced taste of the vegetables and the dressing.
In many times we’ve eaten here, the familiar look of our table had a slight change because of this crab pasta, which is so good. It’s like love at first taste. Did I tell you that I easily fall for seafoods? I think, that explains it. So, for all the seafood lover out there, you should definitely try this crab pasta. I must come back for this.
I always get stunned when the drinks, except wines and liquors, are in unique color because sometimes, it’s all about the presentation. Guava juices are rarely sold in restaurants so another point for this one. And for the taste, all I can say is spectacular. Just don’t forget to add some ice when it melts because the sour taste goes bad.
Aside from guava juice, the grill also offers cucumber juice which is also rare. This was my mother’s friend’s drink so I’m not going to give a verdict on it. I just look at her as she drank it and spat out the word “sarap” after.
Although they have a place for dining, Onin’s Grill focus more on catering services. Just send them the details of the design and they will give justice on the kind of celebration you want. Whenever I attend a celebration under their service, I honestly feel like I’m in a luxurious buffet because every side has varieties of food to choose from. They have a table for main dishes, a table for sweets for kids, a table for desserts and a table for the drinks.
