3 Different Types of Bulalo to try in Tagaytay


3 Different Types of Bulalo to try in Tagaytay

It’s that time of the year again when the rain doesn’t seem to end and the tropical country turns into a colder atmosphere. In Tagaytay, Filipinos would do anything for a spontaneous trip where temperatures drop and a bowl of freshly cooked Bulalo is served in more than a 100 restaurants along the road or in some nooks.


Bulalo is a soup loaded with beef shanks and marrows where for Filipinos, the marrow is the cherry on top in every served Bulalo.


Since almost every Bulalo in every restaurant is cooked the same, you need only to try the best one with a unique taste giving you a unique experience.


We’ve tried to look for different kinds of Bulalo in Tagaytay. So far, we’ve seen three (or four).


1. Leslie’s Tagaytay Special Bulalo

Leslie’s Tagaytay is of course a homegrown restaurant in Tagaytay. Aside from its location where you can easily spot their sign by the main road, it’s also perfectly situated at the hillside overlooking the Taal Volcano.


They have a huge area where it can accommodate large groups like families, seemingly native-inspired interiors and furniture and a group that serenades each table with modern songs.

Leslie’s Special Bulalo is quite a hit. Not only that it has a generous serving of meat but, of course, the prized marrow. Each order can serve 4-6 people.


Location: Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Tagaytay, Cavite

Restaurant Hours: 6AM - 12AM

Price: P450 (+ 10% service charge)


P.S. A cheaper alternative is at Green At’s also with its generous serving of shanks and marrow with a great view of Taal Volcano.


This is their serving of yummy marrow.

Location: Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Tagaytay, Cavite

Restaurant Hours: 24 hours

Price: P455 (no service charge)



2. Aozora’s Bulalo Ramen (Mori Ramen)


One of the things people do with food is doing a fusion of two cuisines. The signature dish of Aozora is their Bulalo Ramen – a twist of Filipino favourite with Japan’s one and only ramen.


Aozora was once a secret Japanese resto hideaway. Now that it has moved to a bigger location, it’s gaining popularity not just because it offers amazing and legit Japanese food like sushi but, everyone is curious to know what a Bulalo Ramen tastes like.


Let me tell you that it tastes surprisingly good. Served on a pot with bulalo’s soup, ramen noodles, corn and super tender meat and tendons, it’s actually worth a try!


Location: 209 SVD Rd, Tolentino West, Tagaytay, Cavite

Restaurant Hours: 9AM - 10:30PM

Price: P350 (+ 10% service charge)



3. Balay Dako’s Sizzling Bulalo na Baka


Another one to try for and die for is Balay Dako’s house favourite, Sizzling Bulalo na Baka. It’s a 1 to 1.2 kilo serving of braised beef shank smothered in a mushroom sauce. It’s served on an iron plate. It’s a perfect treat for a food trip in Tagaytay.

Location: Tagaytay - Nasugbu Hwy, Tagaytay, 4120 Cavite

Restaurant Hours: 11AM - 9PM (Weekdays), 7AM - 10:00PM (Weekends)
