BFRV Eats: Hits and Miss Edition + 1 FOOD PLACE YOU NEED TO STAY AWAY FROM

Before I start, let me clarify that I paid for all my meals and that this is PURELY MY OPINION. It means that I am not right but I am also not wrong. This is based on how I found the food, what it tasted like to me, and yes, how it compares to others that I have had that are similar.

These are food places that sell inside BFRV.



Hits: Chicken Sandwich and Chicken Taco
Miss: Chic-o-Sandwich

I loved their chicken sandwich and chicken taco. For the price, definitely worth every hard earned money. It's also best to be one of the first deliveries since the sandwich will still be a little hot, adding to the flavor and experience.

Price: Buy 1 Take 1 99. Definitely bang for buck!

Piaya


This is a MISS for me. It comes in Ube and Caramel but instead of tasting like piaya, it reminded me so much of the Hopia Baboy in Ube being sold in Binondo. They should have marketed this as hopia. I would have ordered more.

Senyor Juan

They are located across the clubhouse.

Hit: Suman Latik
Miss: Black Kutsinta



Loved the suman latik. It was definitely something that was worth going back to again and again. Price point was also fair though I can't remember the exact amount. However, the black kutsinta needed to stop being so fake.

Come on guys! It's kutsinta colored black and then sold in an exorbitant manner. It's not good. It's pure hype. You're wasting your money. Buy the real deal off the street.



Miss for me. It was a good attempt but it felt like the eating the sad, rejected brother of C
Silantro. I know I shouldn't compare but I did and I was really hoping that it would be a bit close to what Cilantro has to offer especially in terms of the burrito.

It was okay. That's the problem. It's just okay.

I wanted something filling, something that would make me want to grab a bottle of ice cold beer, sit in the garden, and mull about how great the world still is because there's good burrito and beer.

This one left me wondering why I paid so much for something that felt lacking.

Ronelli's Bagel aka WhoaNellie


HIT.

Grabbed this photo from their page because I forgot to take a decent photo of the bagel because it was so good! This should definitely be a staple in your breakfast area, I kid you not. Heat it, put cream cheese or salmon if you're feeling fancy.



HIT.

I've ordered this at least 6x since I discovered it last Mother's Day. I think that already says a lot.


This is located along Gloria Diaz. A HIT for me. I loved their mushroom burger the most.




This is definitely a hit in terms of taste. I ate 3pcs in one go. It was freshly made and filling!
 
 
The first time I tried Kani Allie, I wasn't impressed. I thought to myself, it was okay but it wasn't anything amazing. I tried it a second time though when I saw that they announced that they made some improvements. 

I'm glad I did. This time around, I was impressed with Kani Allie's baked sushi. 
This is definitely a hit. 
 

I was curious and I'm so glad that I gave in to this curiosity. The spam burrito was soooo good. Everyone in our family loved it and refused to share. I was glad that I got us one each.
 
This is made of seaweed sheet, Japanese rice, spam sticks, kani salad mix, Japanesse mayo, sriracha sauce, and egg. 
Definitely a HIT.
 
 
I tried the Spicy Salmon, California Maki, and Ebi Tempura with Avocado. 
HITS: The spicy salmon was on point. It was fresh, tasty, and refreshing. The california maki was good but nothing outstanding. Its the spicy salmon that was the real star.

MISS: The Ebi Tempura wrapped in Avocado was a downer for me. I had high hopes because it was the first time that I've seen an Ebi Tempura wrapped in Avocado. Sadly, I didn't really taste anything. No avocado, no shrimp, no mayo. I don't know what happened with this one but it was just bleh.



HIT. You can buy 3 pieces for only Php and even add french fries for just an additional Php20. The 4 flavors they have are:

• CLASSIC
Plain Dog inside dough + catsup + mayo

• POTATO DOG
Dog + Potato Cubes

• CHEESE OVERDOG
Cheese wrapped Hot Dog + Cheese

• DOG N CHEESE
Half Dog N Half Cheese

They deliver within BFRV for a Php20 delivery fee between 3-5pm daily.
 
 
 
HIT. These donuts are definitely not just any ordinary donut. For me, it's not as good as Krispy Kreme but it has it's own personality and taste. I personally liked it and would definitely order again when I can.  
 
Carnival Food Club Chicken Katsu 


HIT: The Chicken Katsu was made of dreams. This was the chicken katsu that I was dreaming of for months and finally, I got my hands on it. It was HUGE, it was tasty, and it was just so good. If I hadn't stuffed myself so much hours before I had this, I would have finished the entire thing all by myself. 
 


I asked the owner if I could have everything in a box of 10 and they were gracious enough to accommodate my request so I was able to try the OG Turon, the Ube, the Nutella, and the Pineapple one. 

NEUTRAL: The turon was good. The Ube and Chocolate ones were also good. The Pineapple, I didn't really get to taste it. I felt like it was lacking. 

So to be clear, it was good. It just wasn't good enough for me to order again, to look fo rit, to crave for it. It was just good. Nothing more. I was hoping that it would blow my mind and I'd crave for it again and again. 

Now the cream sauce is a whole different thing. When you dip the turon in it, flavors explode and happiness starts seeping in. So if you will go and try Marcuzo's Turon, make sure that you dip your turon into the sauce they provide you with. Better yet, ask for 2 more of the sauce so you can thoroughly enjoy your turon.


MISS. Definitely a huge miss. Food, service, presentation, everything was just miserable. It was so sad that I could hear the burritos crying about the injustice of it all. It was that sad.

My order was supposed to be at 430pm. 449pm he was just about to cook. I finally got the food at 928pm.

Also learned that he has SCAMMED at least 3 customers. They paid, food was never delivered and they never got a refund. They were even blocked by the owner.

His excuses are ALWAYS the following:

1. Meat was not delivered.
2. Need to run to supermarket and buy the PERFECT meat
3. Line is so long
4. Accident in the kitchen. It can be a fuse blew up or he had to run to the ER but he will be back in an hour. Really? In this time of pandemic?
5. He will add meat to make up for the delay.


DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS PLACE. I REPEAT, DO NOT. 

Other establishments I've eaten at here inside BFRV:













Which one is your favorite? Have you tried any of the ones I've tried?

  1. Lmao @ "It was so sad that I could hear the burritos crying about the injustice of it all. It was that sad." That was so hilarious. Then again, I think some days are just bad for some people. I've had that experience before. I also think you should give them another chance to make it right before cancelling them. Nice review.

  2. Whats BFRB? Piaya is famous here in Bacolod and I guess our variety is more delicious. I also tasted black kutchinta. yes, you are right, it is just the color which make it different from the original one that we used to eat. the delicacy was also pricey and I will never buy it again.

  3. That was unfortunate about the burrito situation. In the pictures, it was not look like something to eat but on a good note, the chicken sandwich did look good!!!🤗

  4. The burger looks so heavy. And I bet it was delicious. Burgers are my go-to food when I have nothing nice to eat at home. I like burgers that go with the fries and coke.

  11. You've eaten at a lot of places in that area. The last restaurant sounds so bad, even looking at the photo, I would not eat there. Looks like an amateur made the food.

  14. The foods look so good, especially the Kani Allie's baked sushi. I didn't even know baked sushi was a thing. Also the spam burrito sounds so interesting. I may have to try that one day!

  15. Too bad the burrito was just mediocre. It is hard to find a really good one. The bagel looks delish.

  16. Great tips here! I hate when I go to a restaurant and the food doesn't live up to my expectations!

  17. Wow, that last one doesn't look very inviting - on the contrary it looks pretty disgusting :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. None of those dishes look familiar but maybe I saw pancakes in one of the photos. It's always helpful to read honest reviews. Good job!
