Bagoong Club – a Bagoong Themed Restaurant Everyone is Raving About

 
FREE APPETIZER. Singkamas with Bagoong Asya (asian flavor spices) and Bagoong Umaga (with Chili)

If you are looking for a unique Filipino restaurant where to bring your balikbayan or foreigner guests, you have to drive all the way to Bagoong Club (BC) in the Tomas Morato area in Quezon City. Most Filipinos are raving about this restaurant specializing on bagoong (salted and fermented fish paste). There are 7 variations of the Bagoong and you’ll encounter the first two– Bagoong Asya (P15) and Bagoong Umaga (P15), with the free singkamas appetizer. The traditional bagoong version is called Bagoong Lipunan (P15).

The Homey Cafe Restos of QC:


All Vegetable Kare Kare (P180). Kare Kare is one of their best sellers and the perfect partner for bagoong and rice. Bagoong Club’s Kare Kare is a bit sweeter and nuttier in taste. It is a bit different and seems to be created to match the Bagoong Lipunan that comes with it. What’s good with BC’s Bagoong is that you’ll never get tired of its taste. It is addicting and you can easily finish 3 cups of rice if you don’t watch what you eat.


Club Binagoongan Special (P240). Another favorite combination is the Binagoongan Tomato Sauce, Bagoong and Rice. It is better to just serve this binagoongan without the pork meat which are all fatty anyway. The sauce was wiped out like somebody licked it.

Check out the other combinations you can try with Bagoong: Bagoong Club Main Dishes Menu 1 | Bagoong Club Main Dishes Menu 2


Bagoong Club Special (P25) a mixture of our special bagoong and our secret ingredient. If the Bagoong Lipunan is not enough for you, try this deadly special combination of bagoong with taba ng talangka.

If you want to try all the versions of Bagoong, I would recommend you order the Bagoong Sampler for P100.

Bagoong Club Pasta (P190). Just stay away from the pasta dishes. I felt that I will have kidney stones with this dish.

Calamansi Torte (P130). Exclusively made for Bagoong Club by Chef Pixie Sevilla – Santos. You have a choice to end your bagoong food trip with Pastillas de Leche Cheesecake or the Calamansi Torte. Both desserts are very good and created by one of the Sevilla siblings who owns Bagoong Club. I prefer a contrasting Calamansi ending to our Bagoong Club visit.

Highly Recommended and you got to check them out in Tomas Morato area. If you are coming from St. Luke’s area, turn left to Tomas Morato and turn right when you see Starbucks.

  2. Hey Bro,
    Do you happen to know if yung bagoong nila is pork-free? I can’t really have any pork on antyhing I eat, thanks bro. Basta labas tayo ulit.

  3. ….i was in tears because this are good signs….before filipinos used to hide their ‘bagoongs'{tuyo daings like the courageous brave ‘lime 88’ restaurant & franchises in mandaluyong rizal]and took many extra efforts in spraying all kinds of refresheners perfumes to make sure guests foreigners in particular are not offended or who dislikes by the smell of filipinos foods & ingredients like bagoong tuyo daings too BUT NOW those ‘itinatago’ ay inilalabas na ini ooffer pa at well presented publicly pa kaya i was in tears lol kasi more less ‘complex’ sa mga buto ng majority filipinos at hindi ikinakahiya ang nature ng amoy ng local dishes nila eh meaning kahit others like colorful ‘banig’ can-will be a widely acceptable materials sa ibang high ends na filipino quality na state of the art products even as a national pride for any philippine restaurants padded ‘interiors’ or have part furniture materials like these thank you….

  4. i hope they keep the price at the lower end as bagoong’s popularity amongst filipino is anchored chiefly on its being dirt cheap!
    i don’t have ultra sensitive tastebuds, so i probably won’t taste the difference between the hundreds in offer anyway. imo, once bagoong stop tasting salty, it’s at the risk of losing its discrimating taste.

  5. Originally posted this at Mrs. Awesome Planet’s site so I might as well post it here too…
    DAMN! I LOVE BAGOONG! My ultimate favorite was this one variety whose name I unfortunately didn’t get that my Mom brought home with her from Cavite years ago! I used to eat it as my ulam with steamed rice! I have to go to this place soon!
    I hope they sell bottled bagoong in different varieties so that we can bring home some and sample the subtle differences of each one.
    And Anton, try to eat singkamas that’s been marinated in vinegar overnight! SARAP!!!

  6. whew! I love it! Don’t you know that whenever I go to MOA, we always have our lunch at KKK with binagoongang lechon and insaladang talong…..sarap! Now that I knew there’s a bagoong themed resto in that area, maybe we’ll visit that one time.

  7. I especially love the munggo bulalo with bagoong. Imagine that? Very creative dishes. I hope that they’ll maintain their prices too πŸ™‚

  8. My first time to be in this place when we had our team building. I’m so amazed of the ambiance, most especially the foods the you will seldom see on a resto… a different taste for everyones appetite. Surely, you will love the place and you will love to come back! I never love bagoong in my whole life but now… I love it for life… I’ll be back tomorrow to celebrate my partners birthday… See yah!!!
