R & J Bulalohan Tapsilogan Atbp. (R and J): Almost As Good As Home (Mandaluyong)

Living my whole life in the Philippines, regretfully, it has only been recently since I've learned of the existence of bulaluhans.  A lot of my friends swear by R & J Bulalohan Tapsilogan Atbp. (R and J) so I took their advise and dined there one late night.

I really didn't know what to expect as I saw cars and motorcycles parked outside it's tent-like premise where plastic chairs and tables are set up.

As I got deeper inside, I realized the tent was only an extension of the place which was built in kawayan.  It was well-lighted with utility lights.  It was very crowded and the scattered sound of chatters were echoing.  There is also a television turned on in loud volume.  Its walls are filled with photos of actors, singers and famous celebrities dining there.  The customers are a mix crowd from all walks of life.


Bulalo Special (270 php)
Of course, a must order is their best-selling Bulalo Special.  It was a big bowlful of beef shank or bulalo with lettuce.  The broth was rich in what I assume to be real beef flavors and not artificial.  It was served warm too.  You can drink the broth to your heart's content because there are staffs making rounds with a hot pitcher of broth for refill. 

Bulalo Regular (220 php)
I personally prefer to have the Bulalo Regular which had more beef and without the lettuce.

Fried Chicken with Chilli Sauce (320 php)
The Fried Chicken with Chilli Sauce was surprisingly good too!  It was really crunchy despite being skinless and bare naked (without skin).  It also had juicy meat.  The chili sauce makes it even more enjoyable.

Chopsuey (75 php)
The Chopsuey is a mix of lettuce, bell peppers, young corn, mushrooms, carrots, string beans, kikiam and fishballs.  It was pretty good.  I'm just never fond of this healthy dish.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
R & J Bulalohan Tapsilogan Atbp. (R&J) serves dishes especially bulalo almost as good as home.  It offers genuinely good food with honest to goodness quality ingredients without enhancers.  The pricing is also affordable that anyone can dine here.
