Kapitolyo is one popular foodie destination because of it's streets lined up with restaurants! Cafes, diners, hole in the walls, food parks, bars and pubs, dessert stops - there's something for every type of foodie. Most restaurants do not have branches anywhere else but some have made it big making them put up ventures all over the Metro! Silantro is one good example and then there's Mad Mark's too. What's also interesting about Kapitolyo is that there's always a new restaurant waiting to be discovered. Each visit will lead you to a new spot or nook so there's always a reason to come back!
Went to Kapitolyo early this week for yet another FOOD TOUR, also known as food crawl. Five stops, lunch to dinner with a bonus of after dinner booze! Thanks to my friends from Zomato, all of our stops were sponsored! Zomato x foodfanaticph = Crazy Fun Kapitolyo Food Crawl!
First Stop was this hole in the wall that has been highly recommended by some friends. For years and years I have been seeing this small unassuming place offering what others dub as "the best Bulalo in the Metro" - BullChef. I have never tried this place for reasons that I don't really know.
|Beef Sisig? BullChef has it!|
Operating for almost 6 years now, I would say that they have unlocked the secret to their Grandmas hearty soup creating patrons from all over the Metro!
Onto the food, Jeli had us try their best sellers ---
This is their version of Sisig. Instead of using the usual pork as meat, they used beef here. It has the usual Sisig ingredients like onions, chicharon, green chili, egg on top and calamansi on the side. Since the meat is beef, this one's tastier than the usual pork.
This is their Ultimate Bulalo! Packed with 200g of Bulalo Meat, Ligament in bones, Japanese Corn, Pechay Baguio, Baguio Beans and three pieces of chopped-up bones with sinful marrow - this bowl is definitely good for sharing!
This is their version of Sizzling Bulalo. Served in a sizzling plate, this one has 80g of Sizzling Bulalo Steak, bone portion with marrow, gravy, lots of garlic and mixed veggies. The gravy sauce was thick and this dish was overall tasty with tender meat.
|AsimBULL for 355Php (solo/a la carte) | 389Php (set menu with 2 plain rice)|
Overall, I loved the dishes that they served. Jeli told us that they source their meat both in the Metro and in Tagaytay. She said that her father does the sourcing to make sure that they only get quality meat with good fat distribution. They're also thinking of expanding, which is a good news!
Warning: do not expect fancy interiors and furnishings when you go to this place. It's the perfect description of hole in the wall because of the small space with just a couple of tables and chairs. It's like a local karinderya with aircon. It can get cramped here and the ambiance - wait, what ambiance? LOL
4.5 Stars for BullChef!
