The Tasting Menu

Here’s a secret: the tasting menu is actually a “secret” because the restaurant doesn’t advertise it or put it on their regular menu.

But if you “ask the chef” for it, he or a member of his team will gladly show you the restaurant’s tasting menu in small but delectable plates.

We don’t know exactly what Orfali Bros. Bistro offers for its tasting menu, which adds to the surprise factor of this whole experience. 

But we heard through the grapevine that it includes classic dishes like:

  • Corn bomb. Corn and 36-month old parmigiano reggiano.
  • Umami eclair. Porcini emulsion and marmite, fermented quince glaze, cacao nibs and beef prosciutto.
  • Ajoblanco. Almond, Hokkaido scallop, finger lime, olive oil caviar, black garlic and tomato raisins.
  • Miso tahini salmon. Calamansi, mandarin, yuzu, tahini, spicy herbs salad.
  • Cheese pide. Sourdough, fior di latte mozzarella, asiago, kashkaval, feata, chives and egg. 

Pro tip:
If you’re going to the restaurant especially for the tasting menu, let the team know ahead, so the chef can accommodate your request.
Remember, this menu is kind of a “secret,” so you can’t walk into the restaurant asking for it.
