Bucataria filipineza in Dubai- Poftiti la lupta

Pe Anca am cunoscut-o datorita intalnirilor organizate cu prilejul Zilei Nationale a Romaniei. Ea este cea care s-a ocupat de partea dulce, cu tematica tricolora a acestor intalniri.

Insa Anca Ellenbeck impreuna cu sotul ei Jurgen se ocupa de cativa ani incoace de un loc care se ghideaza dupa motto-ul “Locul in care toata lumea iubeste mancarea”. In Karama, inima vechiului Dubai, au deschis un restaurant- Bacolod Chicken N BBQ House- cu preparate din bucataria filipineza. Mai exact, preparate specifice orasului Bacolod, cunoscut datorita modului specific- Inasal- de a marina preparatele din carne, in special cea de pui. Inasal inseamna un amestec de condimente, otet natural de cocos, lemongrass si kalamamsi.

Piesa de rezistenta a restaurantului este Boodle Fight- un festin pe frunze de banan format din cateva feluri de orez, pui la grill, peste, fructe de mare, legume si taietei, toate strajuite de carafe cu apa sau ceai rece. Preparatul e musai de incercat alaturi de prieteni, dar sa nu va limitati numai la acesta. Neaparat incercati pulpele de pui la grill (Chicken Paa), tocanita de pui cu legume si ficatei (Chicken Sisig) si papaya marinata. Sunt preparatele care se vand cel mai bine.

Cu o experienta de 10 ani pe vase de croaziera si cu multi prieteni din comunitatea filipineza Anca si Jurgen au adus licenta Bacolod CHK-N-BBQ House in Dubai. Localul este primitor, cu gazde si staff calde si zambitoare iar preturile sunt pentru fiecare buget. In paralel, restaurantul organizeaza evenimente precum receptii, botezuri, aniversari.

Daca iubiti bucataria asiatica nu mai este nevoie sa calatoriti pana in Filipine. Un drum pana in Karama va satisface curiozitatea pentru aromele de pe taramuri indepartate.







OI met Anca a few years ago due to our Romanian National Day Celebrations. She was the one who supplied the sweet bites for our special day.

However, a few years back ( in 2013), Anca Ellenbeck and her husband Jurgen decided to open a philipino themed restaurant in Dubai. Bacolod Chicken& BBQ House is their creation and you can find it in the bustling area of Karama. It is somehow a family type of restaurant that will not intimidate you through its high end, hard to pronounce meniu, unfriendly staff or atmosphere. On the contrary, it is “The place where everybody loves the food”.
It is warm, with friendly staff and a menu that can fit every budget. Its signature dish, that I do recommend you try is Boodle Fight.
Unlike its name, is a “quiet” but diverse mix of dishes but you never know when a fight might start beyween you and your friends over its components. It’s that yummy.
The tables are covered with cling film and banana leaves are set from one end to the other. These will be topped with several types of rice, grilled vegetables, grilled chicken, fish, seafood and noodles. Everything is guarded closely by big jugs of water and….the fight can begin.
But don’t limit your culinary experience only to this dish. Try their grilled chicken (Chicken Paa) or their Chicken Sisig as well and don’t miss the papaya pickle.
The chicken dishes have a particular way of marinating the meat (called Inasal) by using a mixture of natural coconut vinegar, lemongrass, kalamamsi and a wide array of secret condiments.
The prices fit every budget and the hosts are always warm and welcoming.
Anca and her husband decided to open the restaurant after 10 years of experience on cruise ships and a couple more in Dubai. Because they have a large group of philipino friends they decided to bring the Bacolod Chk N BBQ House Master Franchise to the UAE.
There is no need for you to travel to the Philipines to try on their cuisine. Just have a drive down to Karama and there you can have an authentic philipino dish for lunch or dinner.
