Escalante Bulalohan and good old fashioned Dirty Ice Cream

28 Sep

Escalante Bulalohan

I keep coming back to Daet. Mainly because I know super quality people there, there’s really good and cheap places to eat, and the surf’s good. πŸ˜›

So for the past few times I’ve been there, a friend from Manila has always told me to eat at this bulalo place.
Finally after planning to do that for the past n times that I’ve been in Daet, I finally did go last Saturday after a great morning session in Bagasbas. =)

We first went to one escalante bulalohan and it was closed. It was a branch. Thank goodness the manong tricycle and our awesome local guide knew that there was another one open. When we got there, the place was packed. But the turnover was pretty fast, so I being the etchusera, quickly got us a table near the giant electricfan. (har!har!)

The place is open lunchtime until 3pm, but it’s a good idea to get there at 1130am as they told me the bulalo runs out. From hearing that, I did have pretty high expectations for the place.

So ordering time, we were 9 in the group, 6 boys and 3 girls. We ordered 4 orders of bulalo and rice. One order is enough for 2-3 persons. We did think of getting something else besides bulalalo, but nah, what’s the point? We came there for the bulalo anyway.

It arrived looking like this.

*there’s another shot of this with lotsa litid and stuff, but i can’t post it right now. haha!

First impression was like– “there’s no vegetables”, but then look at it. I mean LOOK AT IT. Look at how sinful that absolutely fukken looks like. They cook the stuff in a GIANT vat that you can see if you sit inside and do a little peep inside their kitchen. When I mean giant, it means I can fit in it. haha! Wild!

The verdict: tastes as good as it looks. Good bulalo! I scored 2 marrows from the 2 orders, because I am matakaw like that, and I really did surf and got worked a lot that morning.

Total Cost: P440 for 4 orders of bulalo, 9 orders of rice, and sprite for almost everyone. It’s one of the best cheap things I’ve eaten in my life. There yah go.

How to get there: I can’t give you directions on how to get there. I basically got a local to take me there. How? Tricycle –“manong sa escalante bulalohan po.” I think that’ll work. πŸ˜›

gill and moi after just enjoying some bulalo goodness, look at my cheeks! biggg!

Dirty Ice Cream

We also had some happy dirty ice cream when we turned right after hopping on a tricycle. I got so excited seeing it that I asked for the tricycle to stop. The manong driver was happy enough to oblige me and we gave him free ice cream for his trouble. For 5 pesos a pop, simple joys dude!

Much thanks to one of my favorite Daet/Bagasbas locals, Jongs Binaohan for taking us there! And to Gillian (ty too for the libre ice cream), Bea, Joms and the quiet boys for eating with moi! haha!

bea, gillian, moi and the ice cream man!

—more stuff coming soon! eat up!
