Food of the Day: Bulalo of Bulalo Fiesta
Price: P292.00 good for 2-3 persons
Location: Minesview Baguio,City.
After our long trip to Baguio, the first thing we would want of course is to sip a bowl of smokingly hot soup. We don’t have any plans of where to eat so we looked for any restaurant near “Minesview Park”. It was 7am, and most of the restaurants were still closed until we found “Bulalo Fiesta”. “Open 24 hours” it says but honestly, it was still closed when we arrived at the doorstep. The staff were still preparing and cleaning the restaurant. Since we were too tired to search for other restaurant, we became stubborn and told them if it was okay to wait inside while they prepare. They willingly offered us seats so we could rest.
This sight welcomed us as soon as entered the door. Being an absolute spicy food lover, this literally brightened up my day and energized my tired spirit. I want to take this home.
This store showcaseds a kind of vinegar called “Sinamak. It is simple a vinegar with several spices soaked into it like chilis, ginger, garlic, peppercorns, shallots, and onions. The longer these spices are drowed in vinegar, the better taste it gets. It’s quite common in Filipino household already but it looks like Bulalo Fiesta took it to other level with the use of Coconut vinegar and other spices we may not know. I really love their vinegar that we bought one bottle to take home.
After few minutes, they let us choose seat while we eat our breakfast. We chose the veranda although the sunshine strikes directly upon us.
It was annoying but we didn’t mind because of the killer view.
While waiting for the food is the opportunity of course for photo-ops.
And finally our food! We ordered tapsilog, beef pares and the superstar “Bulalo”
They have wide variants of Bulalo with different price ranges. We chose Bulalo w/ Young Sweet Corn which costs P292.00 good for 2-3 persons. The broth was delicious with its tender meat. I also love the freshness and crispiness of the vegetables.
Other Bulalo Variants: Bulalo w/ Jackfruit and Dried Beans, Bulalo Puchero, Bulalo w/ Talbos Bulaklak ng Sampalok and Super Bulalo Special which is the most expensive for P620.00 good for 4-6 persons.
Overall, everything that we ate in this restaurant were delicious. We were glad that this became our unlikely welcome to start our day in Baguio.
FINAL VERDICT: Great View, Great Food! Totally Recommended!
Bulalo Fiesta is located at Minesview, Baguio City but also have a branch in Quezon City.
