    Tagaytay: Bulalo at Mahogany Market

    A trip to the cold mountain city of Tagaytay won't be complete without buying the usual Tagaytay pasalubong and partaking of tawilis and steaming hot bulalo: Filipino beef, bone marrow and vegetables soup.

    One of the best places to get your fill of hot bulalo is at the famous home of Tagaytay beef i.e. Mahogany Market where various eateries and restaurants offer the comfort food, one of Tutubi's favorites, at a good price.

    the row of bulalo eateries, caridenria style in front of Mahogany Market. parking spaces offered to restaurant customers
    hot bulalo served in containers heated to protect the hot soup from the cold weather

    bulalo served on Tutubi's bowl. Simplicity of the bulalo recipe is evident from the small number of ingredients present

    How do you enjoy bulalo? It's sucking the bone for the "utak," actually bone marrow from a huge bone that always comes with a bulalo order. You may use a fork to scoop out the heavenly "evil" goodness.

    Usual price of Bulalo is P300/order than can serve 4 persons, quite cheap though the ambiance is nowhere near your favorite Tagaytay restaurant.

    For his usual serving of Bulalo in Metro Manila, Tutubi visits Bulakeno's Bulalo on West Avenue, Myrna's Bulalo at the corner of Tomas Morato and Kamuning and Bulaluhan sa Roces (all in Quezon City), Nita's Bulalo on Evangelista St. Pasay City and at the (in)famous Aling Sosing's at the corner of Dian and Zobel Roxas St in Makati (near the boundary of Manila).

    Bulalo is perfect with cool Tagaytay weather. "heavenly evil goodness" indeed! (LOL) it is potentially deadly.

    now i'm craving for hot bulalo!!

    And mushroom burger? Yuuuumy.One of my favorite Bulalo is very near my place, located in Cubao at Adam's Restaurant at P. Tuazon (?)Another is at the end of South Super Highway going towards Batangas. And yes, inihaw na Tawilis on BBQ stick.. Another is, Cebu's Pochero (Bulalo style) but with corn on the cob.

    itchie, didn't drop by Mushroom Burger restaurant there but i was able to take a drive-by picture of it. Just eat at their West Avenue branch hehe haven't heard about that Adam's bulalo but you may be referring to Rose and Grace restaurant (or the Grace Sister of Rose) bulalo on Maharlika in Sto. Tomas. Bulalo is similar to Cebu's pochero and also called Pakdol in Tacloban

    bw, you can easily learn how to cook bulalo recipe there for the ingredients are not hard to find :P perhaps i broaden this topic to my list of best bulalo in the philippines :P

    This is the best of Tagaytay -the bulalo! and how fashionable it is presented in a pyrex bowl.

    At Feb 15, 2011, 1:31:00 PM, Blogger PMHunk said...

    and if you are in Quezon City, the best bulalo is in Tomas Morato, MYRNA's Bulalo Haus! Sarap Sarap!

    At Feb 15, 2011, 2:24:00 PM, Blogger GingGoy said...

    PMhunk, yeah as i've mentioned above. i remember there's also Hoseñas Bulalo on Kalentong near Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong near San Juan and F. Manalo. there's also Kansi house along visayas avenue, QC.

    I just need to comment to warn people not to eat at the market. Its a rip off! Specifically Alegre's. Everything we ordered was bad. Yung bulalo nila lasang tubig na may asin. Walang masyadong karne. Mahal pa. At may banner pa sila na sinasabing voted best bulalo daw! Na feature pa daw sa "The Pinoy Foodie" ng GMA. We also ordered Beef Estofado and Beef Kaldereta. The meat was so tough! Ang tigas tigas! Service was bad too. Yung mga waitress walang pakialam at kinalimutan ka na. Warning! Huwag kayo kumain sa palengke ng Tagaytay!
