Food Trips | Alamarius Grill's Bulalo

Almarius Grill's Bulalo (PhP320.00/serving, good for 2-3 persons)
Bulalo is one of the famous dishes of Batangas, one of the reasons being the province as one of the major cattle producers in the country. And if you search the net for the famous bulalohan in Batangas, Almarius Grill would come up as one of them.

A few weeks back, me and my friend went on a road trip to Lucban, Quezon to visit Kamay ni Hesus Grotto. But instead of taking the shorter Laguna route, we opted for the much longer (I think) Batangas-Lipa route because of just one reason - to satisfy our craving for bulalo. We've tried bulalo from Rose and Grace's Restaurant in Sto. Tomas from our previous road trip and we liked it very much but we want to try other variety so we went to Almarius Grill in Lipa City.

Almarius Grill's bulalo is tasty, it's soup rich and flavorful. The distinct taste of raw onions and leeks add flavor and richness to its soup. However, its meat is not as tender compared to Rose and Grace's bulalo; but don't get me wrong, the meat is not really firm, it's just that Rose and Grace's is really tender, the meat falls off the bone literally. Another thing that somehow disappointed us is that the soup is not very hot. I love bulalo with steaming hot soup (actually, I love any dish with steaming hot soup) and very tender meat. I would have ignored the not so tender meat of their bulalo if the soup is steaming hot. Just the same, Almarius Grill's bulalo is worth a try, its price cheaper and the serving bigger than that of Rose and Grace's. However, if you'll ask me to choose, I would still go for Rose and Grace's first love never dies eh...hehe. :P 

How to get to Almarius Grill:

Via public transport: Take a bus bound for Batangas City via Calabarzon, ask the conductor to drop you off at Tambo exit, then board a jeepney going to Lipa City. You'll pass by La Salle Lipa and reach a fork with McDonalds at the center of it. On your left is Robinson's Mall, the right going to Lipa City proper; the jeepney would take the street to your right so alight at McDonalds as Almarius Grill is on the left side of the fork. If I am not mistaken, there are tricycles around that area so get into one and ask the driver to bring you to Almarius Grill. Ask the locals for directions so you wouldn't be lost. I don't know if there still are buses bound for Batangas City via Tanauan but if there are, board those buses instead of via Calabarzon as those buses will pass by Almarius Grill, across the street a few meters past SM Lipa.

Via private vehicle: Drive through SLEX, take Silangan Exit, drive straight ahead and take Star Tollway then exit at Tambo toll gate. At the Tambo exit, turn right and drive straight ahead until you reach a fork with McDonalds on the center of it, Robinson's Mall across it on the left side. The right side of the fork is heading to Lipa City Cathedral/public market; the left one going to SM Lipa. Take the left one and drive straight ahead until you see Almarius Grill; it's on you right side, a few meters before reaching SM Lipa.

  10. Naks, pampabata yan hehehe. The last time I had bulalo was a month ago yata, when we had to go on official trip to Tagaytay. Sa Leslie's kami nag-bulalo. But we were told has masarap dun lang sa mga bulalo stalls along the highway.
