Gorda Redefines Fil-Mex Cuisine

This family-owned Fil-Mex restaurant in BGC beautifully marries Filipino and Mexican food. Its hip, plays a great selection of music and is all about serving fusion cuisine that was inspired by their mother’s homey recipes and exotic cocktails. 

As soon as you walk into Gorda, you’ll notice the exposed brick and contemporary design with high ceilings, a cantina, and the eye-catching wall art. The name literally translates to Fat Lady, which we’ll take as an indication that this is the perfect place to get stuffed. And trust me, it’s hard not to when everything from the appetizers to the desserts are loaded with flavors that are worth trying. 

The Mama’s Nachos is a popular starter that’s loaded and comes in two serving sizes. This Spiced Beef Estofado, Trio Local Keso Sauce, Ensalada, and Jalapeno Atchara combined creates a balance between the different textures that will keep you occupied as you wait for the main course. You could also opt for the Breakfast Taquito Sampler that gives your typical taquitos a Pinoy twist with Beef Tapa, Pork Tocino, and Vigan Longanisa used as fillings. 

Gorda also offers Tacos, Quesadillas, Burritos, and Fajitas, but we understand if you’re eager to get straight to the mains. If there’s anything you should order first, it should be the Pollo Inasal Skillet, a Mexican-spiced Marinated Chicken Inasal that comes with Cilantro Sinangag, Roasted Pimiento and Onion, and Homemade Crema. Another unique dish is the Pork a La Parilla that features Grilled Tender Pork Chops, Pineapple Que, and Homemade Refried Beans, with a Kapeng Barako Demi-glace. 

A definite must-visit within BGC, Gorda is located at the 2/F of Uptown Parade.
