Since we have been renting an apartment in Boni, we have tried out several restos where we could find good food at cheap prices. Here are two of them.
Find #1 – R&J Bulalohan
From EDSA going to Mandaluyong City hall, just before you enter the circle, this resto is located near the Petron gas station. I have heard many comments about this resto and we decided to check it out.
As the name implies, they are famous for their bulalo, which is served either regular or special. They also have the bulalo steak. Aside from this, they also offer a variety of viands, meals and snacks.
We ordered a regular bulalo (Php 199.00), lechon kawali, rice and a pitcher of iced tea. The servers were efficient. You could also ask for extra “sabaw” whenever you have drained your bulalo of its soup. Our bill amounted to around Php 500.00.
The place is not airconditioned, but it is well ventilated. They are open 24 hours, and even accepts catering and delivery. Inside the store you could also find message from different stars/tv shows whom they have catered to like mixed nuts, rated k, and the buzz.
If your looking for something cheap, tasty and filling, then this is one place that you could go to.
Find #2 – Circle Garden Grill
This restaurant is located along the Mandaluyong City Hall circle. Near to it is the newly opened animal hospital.
The menu they offer is similar to what is in R&J. Here we ordered bulalito (a small serving of the bulalo), sizzling sisig, and chopseuy. We also ordered rice, and a 1.5 liter of softdrinks.
I liked their sisig, it was very tasty and is a little bit crunchy. The bulalito was ok, but I prefer the bulalo of R&J.
The restaurant is air-conditioned, but there is also a garden portion at the back of the resto. This I assume is for those who go out on gimmicks. The server was a little bit masungit, but she was efficient in providing us everything we need before we even ask for it.
Our bill was a little more than Php 600.00. I would go back to this place to try out other offerings and also for the sisig.
