Hugot Sizzling Hub

Mga beshies, Tagalog blog para intense!

Inaalay ko ang blog na ito sa minamahal kong kaibigan na si Aiko Lee na pagkahaba-haba at pagkalalim-lalim ng hugot.

Nagpunta kami dito nung March pa. Sorry mga bes, busy sa junakis ang lola nyo. Wala na nga akong oras para maligo, magblog pa kaya? 😁😁 Enihaw, galing kami sa lamay ng kapatid ng tropa namin sa Marilao. Pauwi na kami at nagiisip ng makakainan dahil halos dumugo na ang mga tyan namin dahil sa gutom. Gaya ng masalimuot na lab story ng kaibigan kong sobrang nakakadugo ng puso. Naalala ko na gusto ko nga palang kumain sa Hugot Sizzling Hub na matagal ko ng nadadaan daanan. Matatagpuan ito sa 3rd floor ng St. Anne’s Building sa Balagtas, Bulacan sa tapat lang ng palengke at sa taas ng KFC. May parking space naman kaya lang kung madaming kumakain sa KFC, siguradong wala ka ng mapaparkan. May mga bata naman doon na tutulong sayo na magpark kaya wag kang magalala. Tutulungan ka nila hanggang sa OK ka na sa dispusisyon mo. Parang yung kaibigan ko, talagang tinutulungan pa nya maging OK ang kanyang dating iniibig (o hanggang ngayon pa). Move on na day! Ayun na nga, pagakyat mo ng medyo nakakapagod na hagdan, bubungad na sayo yung Hugot. Maliit lang yung lugar pero maayos at nakakaaliw yung mga nakapaskil sa dingding. Pero dahil gutom na nga kami, agad kaming umorder para makalamon na. Akala naming mabilis lang kaming makakapili ng mga putahe, mahirap pala. Mas gugustuhin mo muna kasing basahin yung menu.

Oh diba? Malilibang ka muna bago ka makaorder. OK naman yung menu nila, madaming pagpipilian. Pero sa mga drinks, hindi lahat available. Ewan ko lang kung dahil pasara na nung pumunta kami kaya naubos na siguro yung gusto ko. Mabilis din naman dumating yung mga order namin. At eto na nga sila..

#LettingGo Pasta Carbora. Ang sarap nito promise. Kasing sarap ng dating pagmamahalan ng mga kaibigan ko. Tamang tama ang timpla, may crunch pa. Ang kasamang toasted bread ay masarap din. Parang may butter at garlic yata kung di ako nagkakamali. Pasensya na nakalimutan ko na. Mabilis akong makalimot di tulad ng kaibigan ko na hindi pa din makalimot sa past nya.

#Tinadhanang Pork Sisig. Sorry Hugot pero di namin to bet. Nakalimutan ko na yung lasa basta hindi ko bet. May matitigas na parts. Kasing tigas ng puso ng kaibigan ko. 😖😖

#MahalagaKa Tofu Con Liempo. Ay winner to! Bet na bet mga besh! Pagkasarap.. Di ko maexplain. Basta masarap. May anghang din. Gaya ng nagaanghangang masasakit na salita na nasambit ng mga kaibigan ko. 😔

#BurningForYou Choco Hot Fudge in Pabida at Cucumber Juice. Sa kaibigan ko yung juice so hindi ko alam yung lasa. Pero sa tingin ko ito yung nabibili lang din sa Nestle na powdered juice. Pero yung frappe, masarap din. Matamis gaya ng dating pagmamahalan ng mga kaibigan ko. 

Bukod sa masaklap na kwento ng kaibigan ko habang kumakain kami, madami ding masasaklap na hugot ang resto na ito. Pero ako muna ang huhugot tungkol dito, OK naman, masarap at madami yung serving nila. Hindi ka na lugi beshy. Mura na, masarap pa. Madami kang pagpipilian depende sa trip mo. Parang jowa lang yan, madami kang mahahanap kung anong trip mo. Basta piliin mo lang mabuti at wag kung sino lang. Makakahanap ka din ng masarap at sulit mahalin. Pero tandaan mo, lahat ng bagay nagbabago. Gaya ng sisig na nakain ko, hindi sya sulit. Pero malay mo magimprove sa darating na panahon. Gaya ng ex mo, maaaring may mali sakanya, maaaring may kulang, maaaring masyadong matapang. Pero pwedeng magbago yan. Pwedeng magimprove yan. Kapit lang mga bes! Malay nyo maging swak ulit kayo sa tamang panahon.

Kitchen Avenue – Cravings Satisfied!

Another food blog! ☺☺☺

Kitchen Avenue is the newest food haven for Bulakeños which opened last February 2017. Located in GD Plaza McArthur Highway, Ilang-Ilang, Guiguinto (in front of Waltermart). They’re open everyday from 10AM to 10PM. They have huge parking space and very accessible both through private and public transport. They offer wide variety of comfort food from burgers, pastas, rice meals, salads and refreshment that will satisfy your cravings. 

I went there with Jek, JD and Isha last February 17. First thing that I noticed was the clean and classy look of its interior, simple yet comfy. You’ll feel at-home. Thanks to Kuya Pau who designed and conceptualized all the imagery that you can see inside the place. The air-condition gives just right coolness inside.

Here are what we ordered and our thoughts about them:
My order.

Beef nachos for all of us. It was the typical one but the sauce is really delicious, not the ordinary cheese whiz-like. The portion served is just right for 2-3 persons, I guess. I recommend this one.

Pesto pasta with chicken. It was okay and it tasted better that The Old Spaghetti House’s version. I like this one way better. I chose chicken over shirmp as toppings. This was served with toasted bread. The serving is good to fill my hungry tummy.

Mango Milkshake Grande. I liked its presentation. It was so inviting to have a sip. With caramel over the whipped cream plus candy sprinkles and a marshmallow, wow! It tasted good. Not too sweet yet not too bland. It is creamy as well. Next time I’ll order the large one because this is too much for me.

Jek’s order.

Johnny Bravo Burger. Oh my! 3 layers of quarter pounder beef patty? No surprise why Jek was really busolve (busog + solve). It was really filling just by the looks of it. I managed to taste it and it was heavenly for me. I love its patty, really tasty! The taste of smoke and meat… Wow! It was not dry and it was juicy. 2 thumbs up for me but I can’t finish this one so I guess I’ll choose the other smaller burger over this next time.

Isha’s order.

Sizzling Chicken BBQ. I didn’t had the chance to taste this because I was carrying JD while they served this to Isha. But as per her, it was good. The sauce was also good. The chicken also looks tender and perfectly cooked. Plus the mixed veggies adding some color, perfect!

Cookies & Cream Shake. I wondered if the cookie on top of it was Oreo or something else. But it was good. Isha didn’t finished this all up so I had the chance to taste it. I think this is their best seller. It tasted really good and it’s creamy. I loved it.

Overall, it was a good experience to dine here. I love the ambiance and the food, of course. I’m looking forward to taste the rest of their menu. Next time I’ll try to have burger because I’m really craving for its taste. The price range is good for its serving and quality of food and service. The wide variety of food to be chosen is a plus. Looking forward to visit this place again some other time.

Kitchen Avenue, pop na pop! 😉

Bunjo Home-Cooked Specials Buffet

Buffet restos are so in right now. Filipinos are known for good cooks and mahilig kumain. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why buffets or eat-all-you-can restaurants are popular in the Philippines. From the famous Vikings, Barrio Fiesta, Dad’s and all others, there are also small-scale businesses like these across the country. The newest I’ve discovered is the Bunjo Home Cooked Specials. Located at Brgy. Parulan, Plaridel, Bulacan and opens every Tuesday to Sunday. They serve lunch from 11:30am-2:00pm while their dinner is served from 6:00pm-9:00pm. For the price? A whooping P150.00 only per head. For elderly, they offer senior citizen discount if you can present your senior citizen ID for only P120.00. We went there for lunch on a Sunday after Church Service. We texted their number for reservation but we were told that reservation is full but we can just walk-in and so we did. We got there around 12nn or so and we got in at 1pm. There’s a reservation for 30pax that time for a reception for baptismal. That explains the long waiting time. When we got in, the place is just small but clean. They have ACs and a restroom. The entire place can accommodate 85 persons. Without further ado, we lined-up to grab some food.

Starting with a plain rice. Just a normal rice.

This pancit canton is the bomb! It’s really delicious.

Their baked-mac is also mouth-watering. I can tell that there is a secret ingredient in here that I can’t distinguish. It’s very flavorful. The photo about can tell, once it was refilled, it needed to be refilled again after a short while.

I didn’t manage to taste this one but it looks like a potato salad or something. It looks yummy, though.

This one I have no idea what this is but I should tell, it’s really good. One of the best. I believe it’s made of pork.

This is the beef Kare Kare. I melt. This may not be the best KareKare I’ve tasted but probably 3rd of the best. The meat is tender and the peanut sauce is just right.

Here are the veggies for the KareKare. I’m not sure if there were any other veggies but these two were the only veggies I got. Along side with the bagoong. I think it’s also home-made.

This! Grilled squid. Lovely! They’re very tender and not chewy. Cooked just right. With toyomanci as dip.

I didn’t taste this but I think it’s ham omelette or something. Not sure though. But they said, it was good also.

Grilled pink salmon. I’m not a fan of fish so I can’t say if it’s good or not. But my mom recommended it so I guess it’s good.

Shirmp. I don’t know how they cooked this. I think they just fried it? Haha. It’s good also. Comes with a vinegar dip.

This is soooooooo good! Cheese sticks I don’t know if it’s just me but I really liked it. With the dip that I don’t know what that is. It tasted garlic, mayo and something else. Really good! And crispy too.

Chicken BBQ. By the looks of it, I know it’s good as well. I have read somewhere that this is good. My mom also said it was.

Haaaaay.. I want to go back there now just for this lechon kawali. Super crispy and flavorful. Comes with just Mang Tomas sauce but still, the winner!

Pineapple slices. There is also sliced watermelon. It’s good that they also have fruits for dessert. I would like some mangoes or banana, though.

Vegetable salad. It’s just cucumber a lettuce but the dressing is good, thousand island, I think.

They also serve buco pandan for dessert. But without the buco strips/meat. Hehe. But it was good as well. Not too sweet.

That was the menu for that day. I believe they change their menu once in a while depending on the availability. I heard they have sisig and baked tahong , which I really would like to try. Maybe some other time.

When I had a chance to tall to the owner, Sir Fritz, he told me that he and his mother were the ones who cooked. Bunjo is what he was called since his childhood. Being an only child, I guess it meant bunso or youngest child. He told me that they just started last July 5 of this year, 2016. I asked him if they’re not lugi for their price of P150.00, he said no because they own the place. They need not to rent. They are planning of expanding the place because obviously, their parking area can just accommodate like 10 vehicles, I think. Also, for the dining area itself. I suggested to include some ice cream for dessert but he said they might increase the P150.00 price if they did that. Silly me! Of course! What did I asked that in the first place? But maybe they can charge additional if you will avail unlimited ice cream, right? I almost forgot, they also serve free water to quench the thirst. Just don’t drink to much for you will be filled with it. You want to be stuffed with great food, not just water.

I super recommend this place. It’s really Pop na Pop. For it’s price and quality and huge variant of food? No other place like Bunjo.

If you’re planning to visit, I suggest to contact them first at 09237118920. I’m not sure the honor a reservation through text. You can try to reserve, it not, you can always walk-in just like what we did. Honestly, I don’t know how to go there if you were to commute. But if you have a private vehicle, you can take the route from Walter Mart Plaridel then turn right to the way going to Bustos, Bulacan. You may also take route from Plaridel Crossing, I guess it’s easier from there. Sorry I’m not familiar with the place also, though I’m live in Plaridel. Haha. If you happen to take a visit, please share your experience as well.
