Bullchef: A Big Boo for You

April 27, 2014

Bullchef has been featured several times in TV shows and popular publications.  It is also praised by my trusted foodie friends.  With that being said, we had high expectations and were very eager to try it.

bullchef kapitolyo
Bullchef is a typical house-turned-restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig.

It had a few small square wooden tables with matching wooden chairs.  It also had a second floor which was off-limits during our visit.

BULLCHEF Special (249 php)
The BULLCHEF Special is the claasic bulalo with corn, string beans and lettuce.  We all failed to recognize what made this special.  But admittedly, I've heard people claim this as the best bulalo in Metro Manila.

AsimBULL (275 php)
The AsimBULL is a thick sinigang soup with bulalo. This is just okay...

bullusok
BULLusok (175 php)
The BULLusok is a sizzling bulalalo covered in gravy and served with buttered corn, beans and carrots.  With just one bite into it's tough meat, I could already sense from its flavor that they made use of frozen local beef which I'm not a fan of.

tenderloin bullsteak
Tenderloin BULLsteak (210 php)
I expected the Tenderloin BULLsteak to be a better rendition but other than the difference was hardly distinguishable.

sizzling pork a bull
Sizzling Pork-a-BULL (125 php)
The Sizzling Pork-a-BULL is the same as the other sizzling with gravy dishes but this time it's pork.

Free soup in all meals
Each meal comes with two cups of rice and a bowlful of bulalo soup broth which is the same as the BULLCHEF special.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I wouldn't recommend BULLCHEF to anyone.  Despite all its publicity, I'm saddened to say that this is the worst and most disappointing restaurant that we have tried in Kapitolyo.  The food quality is poor.  It's one of the rare moments were we didn't feel guilty leaving leftovers.  The price is unjustifiable.  I'd settle for food court options over this anytime.
