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


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


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

The Place


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


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!
