Bagneto: Filipino Dishes ALL Bagnet-ized!
In superhero movies, we rarely see superheroes eating sumptuous meals. With the perfectly sculpted abs that these characters have, it’s actually almost impossible visualizing them eating anything sinful. But hey, someone thought of it, and it is totally brilliant!

Who doesn’t love Bagnet? An Ilocano specialty dish, bagnet is one of those Filipino dishes that will keep you coming back for more. Yes, Magneto, be the super villain, abduct me and take me to this tempting haven called Bagneto!
The newly-built The Zone compound is truly a must-visit place. Home of over ten specialty restaurants, you’d better get your tummy ready when heading over. Let’s stop with everything else for now and get on with the drool-worthy food.
The classic. I don’t think words are really enough for this. It’s even better than what I tasted in Ilocos! This one feels like half Lechon Kawali, and half Chicharon. I cannot stress how crispy they are. With thin cuts, crispy skin and tender meat, loosen up your belt and get ready to devour this temptation. Plus, it’s not oily like the usual ones.
Paired with thick gravy and Ilocano vinegar to compliment, all for Php109, what more could you ask for?
Now we go to the Bagnet-ized Filipino dishes:
Crunchy Bagnet with the right kind of Bagoong. I believe that Bagoong is never created equal. This one makes me remember the exact same one sold with green mangoes in front of my high school way, way back. Yes, good food knows how to bring back memories. The right kind of salty and tasty, and the Bagnet stays crispy even after being immersed in different kinds of sauces.
For Bicol Express lovers like myself, just imagine your favorite recipe with the meat replaced with crispy Bagnet. Mild spice and creamy sauce – a thumbs up!
You can’t say no to this one. Kare-kare is such a wonderful dish and I would totally love to commend the person who invented this dish because of its creativity. This Filipino cuisine treasure is now taken a notch higher with crispylicious Bagnet to match. And that Bagoong! Gosh, I wish everybody sold that kind of Bagoong.
But wait, there’s more. Get ready because here comes the crispiest sisig ever made…
I just learned how to eat sisig recently because I’m not really fond of the meat that they use, but this one changed my life. It feels like a sisig-chicharon hybrid. It’s cooked like classic sisig, but now, it also feels safe to say that everything tastes a lot better with Bagnet! I’m thanking the Ilocanos so much for their Bagnet.
To top off the awesomeness, all their Filipino dishes come with rice wrapped like a volcano, erupting with topping goodness.
Right now, we’re really on the super villain’s side because today, Bagneto saved the day with the tempting taste of heaven. So, take a break from all the normal food and try a Bagnet-ized meal at Bagneto sometime! Take a look at their price list and see how you can enjoy it without burning a hole in your pocket.
