Binulo Restaurant: Authentic Kapampangan Cuisine (Angeles Pampanga)

Manuel A. Roxas Highway, Angeles, Philippines

One of the famous tourist stops for authentic kapampangan cuisine in Angeles City is Binulo Restaurant.  It has been featured in several publications and TV shows.  Binulo means "bamboo" so I was excited to try their bamboo-cooked dishes.

It had a simple interior with a traditional Filipino home vibe.  It had wooden tables and chairs with scenic paintings on its walls.


Sisig (280 php)
The Sisig is a sizzlign round plateful of onions, pig cheeks, ear and liver.  It was delicious!

shrimp okoy
Shrimp Okoy 4 pcs. (175 php)
The Shrimp Okoy was perfectly crunchy which you can tell by the golden brown color.  The shrimp was tender within too.

Salads and Relishes
paco salad
Paco Salad (175 php)
The Paco Salad has the pako fern, peanuts, shrimp and tomatoes.  This is a very light, refreshing and healthy dish.

kare kare
Kare-Kare (485 php)
The Kare-Kare was very tasty with peanut essence and it was even enhanced by the bagoong. This is so good that some of my companions even poured the sauce over their rice.

crispy binagoongan
Crispy Binagoongan (310 php)
The Crispy Binagoongan justly deserves a perfect score for its crunchiness.  This dish was sensational!

binukadkad na hito
Binukadkad na Hito (Butterflied Catfish) (295 php)
I've mentioned being a fan of catfish.  This Binukadkad na Hito was finished by your trully.  It was so good, I only left the head part.  The buro was not as sour as others I've tried. 

Binulo Specialties
pangat na ulang
Pangat na Ulang (378 php)
The Pangat na Ulang was my favorite for the night.  The natural sweet flavors of the ulang and the mildly sour broth blended well together.  

binulong nasi
Binulong Nasi (150 php)
The Binulong Nasi had an interesting presentation as the rice was wrapped in leaves and served in a bamboo reed.

The Binulong Nasi has a nice smokey and fragrant flavor.


Fresh Fruit Shakes
buko pandan
Buko Pandan Shake (85 php)
The Buko Pandan Shake is similar to the bottle buko milk shake with tiny buko bits.  But, this had pandan essence to make it even better.
