BAGOONG CLUB RESTO
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.
