Yes! Foodtrip with wifey along the chains of restos at BF Homes Paranaque does not end yet. During our last trip to this food haven in South, we found the Stoops Bagnet Ilocos.
Small air-conditioned room that can accommodate at least 30 pax. The brilliant color of orange creates a sense of fun and warmth for its customers. You won’t get intimidated while entering this fast food chain.
What I like about Stoops they serve wide varieties of authentic Ilocano dishes with a fair price. Imagine you can satisfy your hunger with the famous Bagnet of Ilocos for over a hundred pesos, for bigger appetite they have the Bagnet bossing that can pump up your cholesterol and blood pressure. Kidding aside, their Bagnet is one of a kind. Giving my big bite to its crunchy fatty skin while savoring the tenderness of its meat, I would definitely raise my two thumbs up! If you’re not into pork don’t worry they also serve Chicken Bagnet, Bangus Belly and as well vegetables infused dishes.
Their House Specialty Bagnet was “sulit”, it comes with a side dish which you can choose among the three: KBL (Kamatis Bagoong Lasuna), KKB (Kamatis Talbos ng Kamote Bagoong) and TBA (Talong Bagoong Alamang) plus a plain or garlic rice depending on your preference.
For an extra twist to Pinoy all time favorite Pancit, they added some bagnet flakes to make it more crunchylicious.
As they gave more value to your money, they recently launched their Buy 1 Take 1 Stoopsilog. Imagine you have the power to treat anyone a decent meal. clap! clap!
Story behind Stoops
Two friends who was then working for an airline company, decided to put up Stoops Bagnet Ilocos. Jay, upon the invitation of his good friend and co-worker Galen, they would spend vacations from work at Bacarra, Ilocos Norte. Galen’s mother would cook adobo ilokano, igado, dinengdeng and pinakbet from fresh meats and vegetables for them. Jay was introduced to bagoong with talbos, kamatis, lasuna, empanada, sukang iloko, longganisa and to bagnet-which is the most unforgettable among the other dishes.
Jay would search for restaurants in Manila which serves Ilocano food but he found no one. Frustrated, he suggested Galen to open an Ilocano restaurant. In 2008, the first Stoops Bagnet Ilocos fast food restaurant was opened along Malate Manila.
Happy tummy with wifey and the people behind Stoops.
