A Columbus restaurant recently received some pretty serious commendations, and from a pretty serious source.

The modern Filipino restaurant Bonifacio, which is located at 1577 King Ave. in Grandview, was recently included in a story published by “Food & Wine” on June 28 that selected the best restaurants for Filipino food in every U.S. state.

“At her flagship restaurant Bonifacio in Columbus, [chef and owner Krizzia Yanga]  shares the experience of an unapologetically authentic Filipino meal with offerings like the chicken pyanggang, a grilled chicken dish with burnt coconut that’s native to Yanga’s mother’s home island of Jolo, Sulu, just south of Mindanao,” the story reads. “The island is primarily Muslim, so the meal presents a different flavor palate than what most know of Filipino cuisine, tasting more similar to dishes of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei.”

Bonafacio has long been touted for its Filipino brunch, but the eatery alsos serves lunch, dinner, and even created the city’s first Kamayan, a communal meal typically eaten without cutlery.

Yang also owns Boni: Filipino Street Food, which is located in Budd Dairy Food Hall.
