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.

We have visited the lugawan last night but it was still close, They just opened the lights which attracted scores of residents within the subdivision. The ambiance reflect a homey ambiance with clear, catchy signage and well-lighted place.

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.

fried tokwa and lugaw

Lugaw ( Php 15.00 ) РTheir 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.

Try to visit them at their FB page and have a decent review at TripAdvisor and Zomatoph.

According to the employee, the first restaurant was located at Florentino Torres¬† street in Santa Cruz, Manila on 1958.¬† There are many factors ‘why’ this noodle house moved from the old location ( Manila ) . The blending of Filipino and Chinese cuisine is very evident with their long list of favorite menus .

Much of the downtown Manila experience  is still retained.   It is unpretentiously a house turned into a restaurant. It has no frills and looks probably as it did decades ago. .  The proprietor is Mr. John Fernandez which is a always there at the restaurant.  Older generation  remembers that this noodle house is almost at par with Ma Mon Luk or Manosa .
