Batangas, one of the provinces in the Southern Tagalog Region; home of kapeng barako, Batangas lomi and of course, the famous Batangas bulalo. Being one of the main producers of cattle in the country, Batangas is known for its bulalo, a classic Filipino dish consisting of beef shanks with bone marrow boiled and cooked slowly in a broth until the meat is tender.

|Rose & Grace's (not-so) Crispy Tawilis - PhP80.00 per order|
Rose & Grace's bulalo is so delicious; the soup is steaming hot, the vegetables not overcooked and the meat is so tender, it falls off the bones - literally! This is the best-tasting bulalo I've had, so far. Even my friend who so loved beef dishes said that so far, this is the most delicious bulalo he ever tasted. We enjoyed this dish so much we almost forgot the barbecue and the (not so) crispy tawilis . :-P
Be forewarned though, bulalo is very high in cholesterol so to those with hypertension, this dish is not for you. But if you can't resist, eat in moderation and refrain from sucking the marrow (bulalo without the marrow? impossible, I'm sure hehe!).
|did we enjoy Batangas bulalo? you be the judge...hehe!|
This food trip is one of the best we had; we both enjoyed the food, a rare chance because we have different "likes" and "dislikes" when it comes to food. Come visit Batangas and drop by at Rose & Grace Restaurant, one of the best, if not the best bulaluhan in Batangas. :)
Ala eh! Kasarap ga ng bulalo dine, sinsay muna kayo at ng are'y inyong malasahan!!!
