Restaurant Review: Lula’s House of Kare-Kare

Address: 8 Pres. Roxas Corner Major Dizon Street, Industrial Valley, Marikina City

Date visited: December 2018

The Taste

4/5

The “Original Lula’s House of Kare-kare” tasted good. Kare-kare is a stew of thick peanut sauce and is accompanied by bagoong alamang (fermented shrimp paste). The meat and vegetables tasted really clean which is not so common with other kare-kares out there. The only issue we had was that the sauce was a little too runny and bland (even if we put bagoong).

The bagnet (double or triple-fried pork belly) was so good. Like really good. We ordered another serving. The skin stuck to our teeth, which is a sign of a good bagnet (or crispy pata, or lechon kawali). The meat was juicy and not dry. It was a delicious dish.

The bulalo (Pinoy beef marrow stew) was ok. The meat was soft and almost tasted like corned beef, and the broth was rich.

The Service

4/5

The servers were likable although at times, they couldn’t be found. But overall, we experienced good service.

The Place

4/5

The dining area felt very homey. It may be small but that actually added to the charm of the restaurant. Several portraits, posters and signs gave the place a peculiar pleasant feel. It’s like everyone in the restaurant knew each other.

The Value for Money

4/5

The kare-kare was P318, the bulalo was P498 while the bagnet was P288. All of the servings were good for 2-3 persons. Good value.

Pro Tip: They have karaoke nights!
