Bakahan at Manukan, Metrowalk

Super late dinner at Metrowalk, we stumbled upon this new restaurant, Bakahan at Manukan. It’s actually a franchise of Isdaan and they serve good Filipino food, I love their Bulalo Steak!

Bulalo + Bacon + Gravy = AWESOME ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay, crappy shots ahead so please bear with me *telephoto lens fail*

To get this shot I had to go out of the resto ๐Ÿ˜€ anyway, the interiors was quite good and tasteful and there’s couches on the side tables for that extra comfort ๐Ÿ˜‰

Their staff wears the traditional baro’t saya, a nice touch. They were all kind and very welcoming.

We started with a few things since they wanted to drink some beer, we got their Chicharon Bulaklak, Sizzling Sisig, and Inihaw na Liempo first ๐Ÿ™‚

Chicharon Bulaklak (P228)

Their Chicharon Bulaklakย was good, you get the salty goodness of the chicharon and it’s not oily. It’s definitely a good beer mate ๐Ÿ˜€

Inihaw na Liempo (P278)
Sizzling Sisig (P258)

The usual stuff forย pulutan,ย we tried their Inihaw na Liempo and Sizzling Sisig. Their sisig was quite nice actually, but I prefer it to be a bit more toasted. I love a sisig that’s toasted enough, that the fatty bits becomes chicharon-like. ๐Ÿ˜€

We also got their Bakang Maanghang, Lechon Tinupig, and Bulalo Steak Ala Mignon. ๐Ÿ˜€

Bakang Maanghang (P178)

This was Naj’s pick, beef cubes topped with their peppery sauce served with rice, tomatoes, and salted egg. When I saw theย Bakang Maanghangย on the menu, I really thought they’d use peppers for spicing up the dish. Naj said it’s good and flavorful with a strong peppery taste.

Lechon Tinupig (P388)

This is what their Lechon Tinupig looked like when it was served. If you’re not familiar with the dish, it’s actually a native delicacy from Panggasinan. They cook the chicken with gata (coconut) and let the flavors be absorbed by the meat, then they’d roast it.

Lechon Tinupig (P388)

This is what it looked like when it was chopped. It’s quite good, the flavor from the gata was infused with the meat and you’ll also get this tinge of smoky flavor probably from roasting process.

Bulalo Steak Ala Mignon (P348)
Bulalo Steak Ala Mignon (P348)

Their Bulalo Steak Ala Mignonย was sinfully good and delicious! Like I saidย  Bulalo + Bacon + Gravy = AWESOME ๐Ÿ˜€

Bulalo Steak Ala Mignon (P348)

Here’s a shot of the Bulalo Steak while the gravy was being poured. *Drools* ๐Ÿ˜€ ย The dish was really good, it’s no secret that I’m a firm believer that everything is better with bacon so the dish was almost an instant favorite. The meaty goodness of the bulalo with the gravy and the crisp and saltiness from the bacon bits worked well.

We paired everything with their Bagoong Rice (good for 2-3 persons)

Bagoong Rice (P168)

Fried rice with bagoong topped with slices of scrambled egg and green mangoes, it really flavorful and it went well with the entrees we god ๐Ÿ˜€


VERDICT: Bakahan at Manukan offers local delicacies at good value for money, most of the dishes we had was good for sharing. I love their Lechon Tinupig and Bulalo Steak. It’s definitely one of those restaurants that deserve a return trip.

VALUE FOR MONEY: Good value for money, most of the stuff we got was good for sharing and the place is quite ideal if you’re planning to dine in with a large group and enjoy good Filipino food.

    I’ve never tried Bagoong rice but because I love bagoong and of course, rice… will definitely try it one day. Hope to visit the place, when I get the chance.
