The main dishes focused on by this restaurant is already quite obvious by the name itself, yes- it is bones and belly. Any meat lover will glorify this place.
The design and set up of the restaurant isn’t too fancy, it is just simple and cozy. They have an open area and an airconditioned room as well. Most of the furniture, including their plates and bowls, gives you a hint of “classic, rustic and old style Filipino” culture.
Another notable thing about this restaurant is there kind servers. Just like how Filipinos truly are, their servers welcome you with a genuine smile and serve you with kindness.
As for their dishes, those that are highly recommended are as follows:
This is a beef leg with bone marrow soup. This dish is just cooked to perfection. If you are looking for something hearty and delicious on a cold rainy day, this dish is exactly what you need. The Bulalo soup actually has a presentation before it is fully ready to be endulged. Their servers will pour some soup into the bone marrow and mix it up a bit to really get that flavor going and then place it all back on the bowl. (watch the Video here)
Grilled Tuna Belly
Their grilled tuna belly is definitely one dish that everyone should know about. Its size and just by the smell itself once it gets palced on your table, it is shouting that you devour it already. It is cooked to perfection.
American Ribs with Chocolate Sauce
A twist on the regular barbeque sauce on ribs, the chocolate sauce on this decadent slab of meat will be one you won’t forget. How the ribs was cooked and the sauce itself as two separate flavors is already good but once eat it together, the texture and the flavor just blends so well together. The sharing size of this depends on the weight of the ribs you will get.
Sizzling Cansi Steak
If you like your meat tender and soft but still so juicy, this one is the dish you would like. The sauce seems like a simple gravy sauce but it actually packs a lot of flavor to it. And the sides of it, which are just veggies, are also cooked perfectly. It complements the meat.
Such a classic, this dish will never go out of style when it is cooked perfectly. Bones and Belly’s lechon kawali is first cooked in the oven before it is fried. So the meat is equal parts soft and crunchy.
And just in case you feel like your you’ve had too much cholesterol, try to wash them down with their signature drink Pineapple and cucumber drink.
