BoMugs is a newly opened restaurant in Eroreco subdivision. This restaurant is just run out of a garage but already it is beginning to be extremely popular.
There’s no air conditioning in BoMugs. The place is cool and breezy due to several strategically placed electric fans.
The main counter is simple and functional. A chalkboard lists all the stuff they have.
We ordered all the entrees. Each entree doesn’t cost more than 160 pesos making this place super affordable.
Our orders arrived – They look EXTREMELY GOOD. Portion sizes are large and generous.
The sizzling sisig is top notch. The meat is a little soft with some firm bits. The texture is just right – a nice combination of soft, creamy and chewy at the same time. This dish pairs well with white rice.
The next dish is Pakbet rice with Kawali! Pakbet or Pinakbet is a Filipino vegetable dish that uses shrimp paste. I don’t usually eat Pinakbet but Bo Mugs has made an excellent fried rice that is just right. The shrimp taste is not over powering and there are chunks of squash in the rice. This tastes like Khao Klukh Krapi (Shrimp paste fried rice).
Kawali is crispy deep fried pork belly. It is a popular Filipino comfort food. I’m quite happy with the portion size. Bo Mugs serves the kawali with a spicy vinegar sauce.
More pork arrives – Bo Mugs sizzling pork belly with plenty of garlic. It is covered in a thin gravy and it comes with a side of vegetables.
Just look at the size of that spareribs! It’s almost half the size of the plate.
The sole chicken entree is a familiar dish to people in Bacolod City. It is the eternal favourite of students – the famous Chicken Pesto! Each restaurant has its own version of chicken pesto. Bo Mugs’ chicken pesto is made up of breaded and fried chicken cutlets covered in a creamy pesto sauce.
We had kids dining with us so we ordered a Monte Cristo sandwich which is a fried ham and cheese sandwich. The kids loved it.
Give Bo Mugs a try whenever you are in Eroreco Subdivision. It’s a nice alternative to Pamilya Grill which is sometimes too full. It is also located near Saint Scholastica’s Academy so hungry parents who are picking up their kids can have a quick bite to eat.
