After all the hustle and bustle of the past few weeks and consecutive days of working late, our family decided to take a breather and celebrate victories by having a gastronomic feast at Bagoong Club. With its exciting menu, homey ambiance and proximity, this restaurant has been our go-to place when it comes to having Filipino comfort food.

Having a wide variety of menu, every visit seems like an adventure trying out new flavors and discovering new favorites. Although Bagoong Club is famous for its signature dishes featuring their trademark condiment, the bagoong (or shrimp paste), which I think you really have to give a try, I would like to introduce a few more dishes that will surely please your palate should you decide to give Bagoong Club a well-deserved visit. 

Every meal comes with a complimentary treat of singkamas/turnips paired with a sampling of two of their bagoong varieties: Bagoong Pag-ibig (sweet) and Bagoong Umaga (chili).

The towering Ukoy was one of their best-selling appetizers that it’s hard to see any dining table without one. But for those allergic to shrimp (like me), better try the Tinapa Roll, which in itself is a delectable surprise.

Another dish which unexpectedly caught my heart is the Laing Espesyal. Their version of stewed taro leaves in coconut milk is tender but really flavorful that one serving might not be enough, most especially when it’s paired with the Bagnet Bicol Express.

I found it fascinating how Bagoong Club came up with Bagnet Bicol Express, which is a unique fusion of Ilocano and Bicolano flavors. 

Another wonderful discovery I loved is their Crispy Hito. No hint of bagoong in it but the crispy batter on the outside really complemented the soft fish meat inside. Two thumbs up!

Of course, every visit will not be complete without ordering their signature Pancit Inasal. Their unique offering of a combination of two famous Filipino favorites – pancit and inasal – never fails to capture any palate. 

Their Traditional Kare-kare is already flavorful even without bagoong, but hey, bagoong always makes dishes better, so why not?

If you’re an adventurous foodie willing to give any dish a try, have a plate of Mula Sa Puso, which is a sisig made up of banana blossoms, and paired up with a savory dip of pig brain and mayonnaise. This dish seems to be a perfect reminder that things are better when the brain and the heart are in sync.

Any gastronomic feast is best capped off with a satisfying dessert and from among Bagoong Club’s offerings, what got me more enticed was their Maja, Mais at Turon, which is a combination of the all-time favorite maja con mais inside a crisp sugar-coated spring roll. 

Bagoong Club may be famous for its signature bagoong-infused dishes but I realized that other dishes offered in the menu can also keep up with the expectations. Servings are generous and reasonably priced between P150.00 - P500.00 but the ingenuity of flavors and the satisfaction can be worth more than what you paid for.
