After playing with our inaanak, Caitlin, the girls and I got tired and hungry (chos!) so we went to one of the Scouts and decided to try a place where shrimp paste is THE star.
Where else? But in Bagoong Club. I guess membership requirement include only two things: appetite and cash. Well and, of course, you should be allergic to it. Duh. Hehe.
We had Laing Espesyal (205php), Sinigang na Baboy sa Pinalapot na Gabi 255php and Club Binagoongan Special (200++php),
and Chicharong Bulaklak (100++php).
I forgot to save a picture of the bagoong samplers with singkamas they gave us before our meals arrived. Their samplers include sweet and spicy bagoong. really good, but the only thing we had with shrimp paste was their Bagoong Special. I guess their laing had some, too. We weren’t in the mood to eat kare-kare, which, of course, we know is always served with bagoong. Maybe that’s what we’ll have next time. 🙂
Their sinigang was good, though I would have wanted it to be more sour. It was still excellent with the crispy, flavorful chicharon. Our barkada loves this combo and if you haven’t tried it yet, it’s time you do. I say WELCOME! in advance. 🙂
The laing was flavorful. probably one of the best ones I’ve tasted. The Bagoong Club Special is a dish of pork, tomato sauce and bagoong. It really was special because it’s sweet-salty-sour-spicy!
I recommend that you try all those four. What I don’t recommend you get are their desserts. At least, the 2 that we ate.
The Mango Pana Cotta 115php was like fruit gelatin. Very very sad.
Their chocolate something (drat. can’t remember, sorry) looked really pretty but tasted so-so.
Overall, we would go back to Bagoong Club. Liked the food, service and ambiance. Will just get dessert elsewhere. Or maybe try their other ones.
Thanks to my LLB, Carla Bianca Viloria-Manaloto for the pictures! 🙂
