It’s been more than a year since we last featured Ka Jec’s Bangihan. We’ve always had an amazing experience every time that we visit for a feature. This is why this time, I had higher expectations, especially since Ka Jec’s Bangihan took some time off to renovate their restaurant and develop new concepts and dishes.
Needless to say, I was very excited to try the new and better Ka Jec’s Bangihan.
What didn’t Change?
It’s the same Ka Jec’s that we’ve grown to love – the same Ka Jec’s that levels up the street food experience. They do have new dishes that offer a more varied and enjoyable dining experience, but one thing didn’t change – they still offer great food, both old and new.
We were able to try new dishes (more on them later). They also have videoke now that’s ready for you once you’ve gathered enough “liquid courage”. The place itself is now more conducive to chill nights with friends.
They also have a cool concept going on. They have this “sari sari store” where they sell snacks that 90s kids grew up loving.
A Place to Chill Out with Friends
You just have to take a look at their menu to see that they’re a good choice for a group of friends looking for a place where they can hang out and chill while enjoying good food and drinks. They have group meals including boodle fight options for that fun and bonding dining experience.
It’s a good place if you’re not really looking to go walwal on drinks. Enjoy a filling boodle fight with your friends and then enjoy a bucket or two while singing videoke or listening to the talented singer on stage. You’d go home satisfied, relaxed, and full of new stories and memories.
Trying their Boodle Fight
This is not the first time we’ve tried their boodle fight. This was last year:
We tried a couple this time. We tried the Pica Fight (PHP 599).
This comes with their bestselling pica options – Nachos, Fries Overload, Calamares, Chicken Skin, Onion Rings, Streetballs and Fried Isaw. This is perfect if you’re not really hungry and you’re just looking to drink and chill with friends. Just add kwentuhan and that’s a recipe for a great night!
Thank goodness they still have the boodle fight. You have 3 options – Boodle Fight 1 (PHP 499) that’s good for 2 to 3 people (date night, perhaps?), Boodle Fight 2 (PHP 999) that’s good for 4 to 6 people, and the BYOB or Build Your Own Boodle!
For our boodle, we enjoyed street food namely the Isaw, Tenga and Adidas (deep fried!). It also had fresh and plump Binanging Tilapia and Bangus, juicy Liempo and Ensaladang Talong and Manga.
Their boodle fight options come complete with dessert. For this version, we had Fruit of the Day (luckily, it was dragon fruit when we visited) and their must-try turon!
You also get drinks and a huge mound of rice because what’s a boodle fight without rice? The boodle fight is so good that we ordered extra rice. It came in these hilarious containers.
Pancit ni Ka Jec’s
As if the carb-filled boodle fight wasn’t enough, we also tried the Pancit ni Ka Jec’s.
This pancit is cooked BBQ style, so there’s a good chance that you haven’t tried something like it! The BBQ sauce provided a bit of sweetness to the pancit dish. It’s a good complementary add-on to your boodle fight!
Hot Bulalo on a Cold Afternoon
They also have Bulalo (PHP 380)
The beef is fork-tender and the broth, delicious!
Sizzling Dishes at Ka Jec’s
We tried their sizzling dishes for the first time. They have a Sizzling Sisig ni Ka Jec’s (PHP 199).
It was so appetizing to look at that I used my boodle-fighting hand to grab a handful when it just stopped sizzling. The slight pain is worth it.
They also have Sizzling Hotdog (PHP 129).
This is perfect with a cold beer with a buddy.
We also tried the Sizzling Pusit (PHP 169).
It’s surprisingly tender! Enjoy it as a pulutan or as ulam!
