Whenever you’re in Bacolod, try a bowl of steaming hot Cansi soup. There are lots of places to try it but today we’re featuring Eron’s cansi house!
Cansi/Kansi is this amazing soup that combines sour batwan fruit with beef and bone marrow. It’s a very rich and delicious dish that goes well with rice. We headed down to Eron’s Cansi house in Bacolod’s old chinatown district (a.k.a Shopping) to try it.
Eron’s is an open air restaurant. There are long wooden tables inside. There is wifi and overall the place has simple decorations. They also have an area where they serve Filipino food turo-turo style in chafing dishes.
We ordered one thing – Beef cansi. It’s 300 pesos a bowl and 25 pesos with rice.
The mark of a good cansi soup is the amount of meat and the marrow.
Beef marrow is so rich and fatty. There are several ways to enjoy this treat. Some people like to spoon it out onto their rice. The hot rice instantly melts the marrow and you can mix it in. Others like to mix it with their soup. I like to do a little of both along with putting a little amount of marrow in my mouth. It’s like a shot of rich, creamy flavor. Very intense.
Here’s a short video that we made of Eron’s Cansi house. Short and sweet. Direct to the point.
And here’s another shot of the bone marrow after its been scooped out. Time to EAT!
Eron’s Cansi house offers free refills of the batwan flavored soup base. If you’re not familiar with batwan or batuan, it’s a small fruit native to the visayas area of the Philippines where it is used traditionally as a souring agent in dishes like sinigang.
Come down to Eron’s cansi house. It’s a good place to try and experience the famous Cansi soup of Bacolod City. There’s many places that serve Cansi but we prefer Eron’s. Good value for money, not overpriced, not overhyped but still pretty good.
Eron’s Cansi house is located at C-58 Narra Avenue, Bacolod City
