My Good Man, this heathen calls himself "Magz" as if his own name wasn't good enough. He claims to own these titles "Web Developer Baller" and a "Social Media Ho". It appears that this ruffian has also a talent in digital art.

Readers, I give you this Asian restaurant, the Oriental Spice Gourmet!


No, the owner didn’t pay me to do this and no, I wasn’t invited, either. My boss did.

The Oriental Spice Gourmet serves a delicious mix of dishes inspired from different cultures in Asia, including China, India, Malaysia and Singapore.

Here are some of the dishes:


Mee Goreng



Char Kway Teow


Nasi Goreng

Here are the dishes that stood out for me:

I’m fairly new to foreign dishes because I really love Filipino food but now I think I’m starting to fall in love with these:



 Spicy Beef paired with Roti Paratha…I just can’t explain why this simple looking dish explodes with flavor in my mouth.


The Chili Chicken, obviously it is very spicy from the name itself . The  spiciness of this food is different from a dish with a “sili labuyo”, also the dish has cashew nuts in it.

The Price that will blow you away

Their main dish is 150 good for two to three persons. They don’t add msg; they add pure spice imported from Malaysia.

The Ambiance



The ambiance is good. You can really feel that it serves some good food. The only thing that I noticed that needs to be improved are the tables. They are a bit small, especially if you will order a lot of dishes.

The overall experience


The experience was really good. Never in my whole life where the owner will pick a dish for you, especially if you are new to the restaurant and ask how spicy our dish is or do we have an allergy. The owner is really friendly and accommodating. In fact, due to our conversation with her, we came in at around 7 p.m. and went out at 10 p.m.

Overall, it was really a good experience—having good food and good conversation gave a very pleasant dining experience.

Things that you should know!

They are open Mondays to Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

For deliveries, here are their telephone number: (032) 238-4544 or (032) 406-0814. They have a minimum order of 750 pesos.

If you don’t want to wait, don’t go there during lunch time. They are almost always packed!

They are located here. Beside Jollibee at MEPZ 2.
