It is just few blocks away from the Christ the King of the Universe Parish. We did a couple of local visit to this lugawan ( Rockville Subdivision) few years ago together with a small group of local bloggers/ vloggers living within Novaliches.

This used to be the community’s favorite Laurence & Laurenz Tapsilogan at iba pa for several years before a videoke/bar opened there for about 1 year and eventually closed down last January 2019.

Humble Beginnings

The lugawan had its humble beginnings in Rockville subdivision within Barangay San Bartolome, Novaliches. They already had some popular clientele which dined-in at their place for the past 10 years. It is near the popular Ocampo Bakery ( which was once dubbed as Bakery of the Stars). Mang Boy Alfredo Lugawan also opened another branch within Villaflor Village in Barangay Gulod, Novaliches few days ago.

What makes this home grown restaurant popular, is the affordability of their rice porridge ( lugaw), bagnet, arroz caldo, bulalo and tapsilog meals.

There is amble dining space ideal between 48 to 50 customers at any given. Given its good location and family oriented dishes. This will surely become a hit among joggers, students, parishioners, residents, commuters, food connoisseurs and bloggers living within the vicinity.

We also think that this will give Janet’s ( another home grown restaurant in Novaliches) a big head to head battle.

lugaw-and-fried-tokwa

fried tokwa and lugaw

Lugaw ( Php 15.00 ) – Their lugaw is not too salty. A little squeeze of calamansi, chili oil and pepper with enhance its spiciness.  Perfect comfort meal at any time of the day.

Fried Tokwa ( Php 10.00) This goes well as topping in any lugaw. Perfect with their special spicy vinegar dip.

Fried Lumpia ( Php 10.00 )Unfortunately, this was unavailable when we ordered at the restaurant.

lugaw-tokwa-and-beef-mami

Beef Mami ( Php 49.00) – The beef meat is tender and the noodles is not overly soggy. It also had hard-boiled chicken egg topped with fresh cabbage leaves.

Chicken Arroz Caldo ( Php 59.00) -Not too bad with thick rice porridge, chicken and calamansi. A dash of spicy chili oil and pepper will make this a little bit spicy.

Pancit Miki Bihon ( Php 60)- Thumbs up for this noodle dish- This is ideal between 1 to 2 people ( for sharing ) We were amaze with the generous topping of crispy fried bagnet.

We cannot wait to taste their famed chicken barbecue, desserts, beef misono, chicken teriyaki, pork tonkatsu, bagnet, fresh lumpia, bulalo, sizzling dishes on our next review.

1.) PhOligo is PLANT-DERIVED had been clinically tested for its safety and health functions.

2.) Helps relive constipation.

3.) Aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

4.) Develops and improves the immune system.

5.) Helps indigestion.

6.) Reduces risks for wide variety of disorders.

7.) Suitable for all ages- Its natural slightly sweet taste and high solubility and stability in hot or cold water. One can add to powdered milk, coffee or juice.

8. ) Improves one’s MICROECOLOGY– Prebiotic fiber is not as fragile as probiotic bacteria because it is not affected by heat, stomach acid, or time.  Nor does the fermentation process differ depending on the individual.

What is Prebiotic and Probiotic?

PREBIOTICS and PROBIOTICS may sound familiar, but these supplements are different and have different roles in one’s digestive system. One must first know what are these and how these can be beneficial in our daily lives.

PREBIOTIC FIBER were non-digestible part of foods like banana peels, onions and garlic, skin of apples,beans, and many others. Prebiotic fiber goes through the small intestine undigested and is fermented when it reaches the large colon.

PROBIOTICS are live beneficial bacteria that are naturally created by the process of fermentation in foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, miso soup, kimchi, yakult and others. Most are cultured and are sensitive to heat and temperature fluctuations.

powdered-drinks

PhOligo can be mixed with different powdered drinks and beverages without affecting the taste

Effects

We tried using PhOligo for about a week and it is compatible in powdered juice, soup, macaroni soups, fried chicken. lugaw, kaldereta and chopseuy. It does not affect the taste and mixes well.  In some instance, adding just 1 pack even enhances the taste of the soup even fried chicken. We just add 1 PhOligo powder mixture over the fried chicken batter (1 kilo). We did not find it affected the taste of the food.

My cousin which would normally take a poop at least 3 to 4 times a week, but after taking food mixed PhOligo, He would have it at least one a day and would also sleep longer by at least 1 hour longer than the usual. ( Same story in my case).

He would fart several times a day but after the intake, It reduces to just a few and less odor.

Verdict

We would recommend PhOligo to all those who wanted to have a healthier lifestyle. The price is affordable ( Php 280 per box) which contain 7 sachets x 5 grams. One will not go a long way just to find a sales person or refrigerate the item, since it can be stored in food cabinet for a long time.
