Bagoong Club: Noche Buena Menu (Tomas Morato Quezon City)

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Bagoong Club.  So when Ivan Henares invited me and some other foodie friends, I just couldn't say no.  After all, I'm a huge fan of bagoong myself.

bagoong club
Bagoong Club is a house-turned-restaurant along Scout Lazcano Street near Tomas Morato.  

bagoong club
Like a typical home, it also has a receiving area with chairs and frames hanged.  But instead of photos, you'd see clippings from magazines and other forms of publications where Bagoong Club was featured.

The restaurant occupies two floors with the first floor divided into two areas.  Like the house itself, the furnitures and fixtures are all made of wood.  The place looks clean and modest.  

bagoong club
I initially thought that all their dishes contains bagoong.  But, we were told that the bagoong is not applicable for all dishes so its up to you to discover which ones have bagoong and how much bagoong is in it.

Singkamas with Bagoong Club Special and Bagoong Pag-ibig
Upon being seated, we were served a complimentary appetizer.  I found this to be quite addictive that I couldn't stop munching on these even when the main dishes arrived. 

Ukoy (260 php)
This is not the traditional Ukoy I've encountered during  my summer vacations at our ancestral home in Ilocos Sur.  But, this is just as good in its own unique way.  This is dashed with their very own bagoong powder so its savory and crunchy at the same time. 

chicharon bulaklak
Chicharon Bulaklak (250 php)
The Chicharon Bulaklak is my favorite type of chicharon.  But, again it's not the conventional one.  The pork intestines are breaded to crispiness.  I loved this!  It wasn't greasy so its fun to munch. 

Noche Buena Menu
For the whole month of December, Bagoong Club has prepare a special Noche Buena Menu for its diners.

puso de coco
Puso de Coco (190 php)
The Puso de Coco a proof that you don't need to be a sinful Christmas meal to be merry.  This dish is composed of banana blossom wrapped in gabi leaves cooked in coconut milk. 

mula sa puso
Mulo sa Puso (180 php)
The Mulo sa Puso is my favorite among their Noche Buena Menu.  The banana blossoms are cooked crispy sisig-style with onions, liver and chili peppers.  I literally couldn't stop munching on this!  This is one of the best banana blossom dish I have ever tried.

Tinapambutido (220 php)
The Tinapambutido is a nice twist to the classic embutido.  The crispy-fried smoked fish patties topped with laing is just as or if not more tasty that the common embutido but its easier to chew.   

Liemponillo (290 php)
The Liemponillo is a Filipino style cuchinillo.  It is a crispy pork liempo flavored with asado sauce and whole scallions.  The ccrunchiness together with the nice adobo flavor made this dish a crowd favorite.

Krismanok (220 php)
 A bite of the Krismanok will surely remind you of a merry Christmas.  It is a grilled, glazed chicken rolled with ham and cheese and cooked in a sumptuous pineapple sauce. 

sisig paella
Sisig Paella (260 php)
The Sisig Paella is a flavorful paella infused with delectable Pampanga pork sisig.   The paella is not the paella that I have imagined.  It seemed more like Java rice to me.  But, its bold and savory flavor covers for what its lacking in texture.

balut adobo
Balut Adobo (180 php)
The trio of deep fried Balut Adobo with tons of garlic gloves and green mango bits is a fantastic dish for balut lovers like me.  A bite of its is exploding with flavors.

Bottled Bagoong

For the season, Bagoong Club also has Bottled Bagoong available.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Bagoong Club offers a unique Filipino cuisine experience to its diners. Their dishes are easy on the pocket.  The serving sizes are also good for sharing so better to dine with the company of friends and family which is the typical way we Filipinos eat right?  I look forward to trying more of their offerings because I'm sure it will have their own Bagoong Club way of preparation.
