BA­GOONG CLUB RESTO

FILIPINO

Eats - - QUEZON CITY -

Ba­goong, or shrimp paste, is a unique and rec­og­niz­able el­e­ment in Filipino cui­sine. So it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore a restau­rant con­cept was es­tab­lished based on this sweet, salty, and spicy con­coc­tion. Tucked away in a quiet cor­ner of the Mo­rato-Scout area, Ba­goong Club em­braces Philip­pine her­itage and pays homage to the savory shrimp paste by us­ing it in many of their dishes— ex­cept, well, for the desserts. In so do­ing, they high­light the ver­sa­til­ity and util­ity of ba­goong by fea­tur­ing seven dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of shrimp paste. This resto is ac­tu­ally in­spired by the thought that dur­ing the time of the Katipuneros, a rev­o­lu­tion­ary group of Filipinos dur­ing the Span­ish regime, ba­goong was their “sur­vival food”. This was one of the many sto­ries shared by food his­to­rian Mila En­riquez to her grand­son Rosky Sevilla, who is the owner of Ba­goong Club. Be­ing at this din­ing place is like step­ping in­side the home of a good friend who has in­vited you over for a re­lax­ing meal. There is an al fresco area where you can sit on cool nights, en­joy­ing the breeze. Upon ar­rival you will be given a free ap­pe­tizer to sam­ple, Singka­mas. Freshly cut singka­mas is the per­fect com­ple­ment to the var­i­ous ba­goong dips you will be of­fered, like Ba­goong Asya (with Asian "avor­ing) and Ba­goong Umaga (which has chili). The restau­rant’s tra­di­tional ba­goong va­ri­ety is called Ba­goong Lipunan. From the looks of it, Ba­goong Club has per­fected the right blend of in­gre­di­ents to come up with a dis­tinc­tive ba­goong—what­ever your pref­er­ence and taste may be.
