Feeling Foodie: Taguig Eats

February 02, 2015

I have worked and lived in Taguig for nearly six years now. I guess one of the things I like the most is that I don't have to go really far to grab something to eat. Especially now that more companies have set up shop in BGC and McKinley Hill, the food variety has gone up faster than you can say Geronimo. (Yeah yeah, the song. I'm listening to Sheppard as I'm writing this.) There are a lot of places to satisfy every craving--some expensive, some within reasonable range.

For the relatively reasonable prices in Fort Strip, there's Seoul Express. This quaint restaurant can be found smack dab in the middle of bars and clubs in the Fort Strip, looking very out of place. It's very welcoming and has the feel of a hole-in-the-wall eat that's pretty much the rave these days. A meal here can cost from Php 140 to Php 400, depending on how much food you want to eat.

Veggie-I-am-bad-at-noting-menu-items-Rice-Bowl, Php 200. I forgot the name but it is a BIG veggie rice bowl
with three side dishes. 

Pork Tonkatsu, Php 200. Crispy pork cutlet served with rice and three side dishes. 

If I were to give a one-word comment, it would be "sulit!"

Craving for bacon? What about chicharon? If you still haven't heard, you can have both in one dish! And no, this is not about 2nd's popular Bacon Chicharon. But if you're looking for something like that, at half the price to boot, try out Lucky's Burger & Bar located in Tuscany Estates, Mckinley Hill. This was the restaurant formerly known as The Burgery, which boasts a wide array of, er, burgers. But they also serve other dishes, including my favorite, their Crispy Bacon & Egg.

Crispy Bacon & Egg, Php 183. Served with fried rice. We literally went here just for this.

Creamy Mushroom Truffle Pasta, Php 218. Good for two light eaters. It was just okay.

Again, we only went here for the bacon. And that's probably the only reason I'll go back because I'm just not a fan of burgers.

On the *pricier end of the spectrum, we have Mamou's located at the heart of Serendra commercial establishments. Hands down, this is where the best steak can be found in Metro Manila. I know I am not alone in this. Try Googling "best steak in Manila to see what I mean. I can't even write anything more, just thinking about the steak takes me to the times I've eaten here.

Barcia Strips, Php 230. This is crispy pork strips with vinegar. I'm just realizing now that this is also pretty much
just like bacon chicharon, but without the breading.

Lamb Chops 21 oz., Php 1300. Probably the best tasting lamb chops I've ever tried

Angus Ribeye USDA Prime Grade Steak 28 oz., Php 3490. BEST STEAK EVER. I skip the steak sauce and pair it with rock salt. 

If the capitalization wasn't enough, I obviously love their steak. If ever I win the lottery, I'd probably eat here once a week! (Once a week lang because it'd be too unhealthy to do it every day haha) On a side note, both the lamb chops and the steak have two free side dishes each. Choose wisely.

*Pricey means I don't have the luxury of eating there even just once a month because I cannot afford to; only for special occasions

So there, three places to check out in Taguig. Hopefully, I can add more and make this a series. Let me know if you're in the area!
