Established in April 2014, this younger sister of Army Navy mixes comfort food favorites with Pinoy-stamped home specialties in an island feel atmosphere perfect for lunch-outs with officemates or relaxed weekends with family and friends.
“Our tagline is ‘home is where the hut is’ and we want people to feel good and at home when they dine at Coco Hut,” says Coco Hut Marketing Specialist April Aragones. Truly, with its appetizing selection of dishes, it won’t be long before Coco Hut becomes your new choice spot. Feast on its menu offered at friendly prices and see why this may be one of the best alternatives to your usual fast food.
To kick off your Coco Hut experience, try these recommended dishes:
Kani Cake (P140) — Four pieces breaded deep fried chunks of kani, jalapeño, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, served with sweet chili sauce. It’s a delish appetizer filled with a melange of flavors. You’re sure to get a second order.
Hutwings (P240) — Good to share, an order contains three pairs of wingettes and drumettes tossed in spicy sauce. No need for forks and spoons. You’ll want to tackle these babies barehanded because they’re real good.
Potato Chips (P60) — Tease your palate a bit while waiting for your orders with these freshly cooked, thinly sliced potatoes. They’re not too salty, but crispy and taste just right.
Poor Man’s Fish (P175) — Comprised of deep fried galunggong tossed in leeks and chili and served with rice, coco squash, and spicy soy vinegar sauce, this one’s a star in the menu for a reason. The fish is spiced just enough to give you an exciting fiery mix of flavors and the coco squash side is a definite must-try. It’s unique and complements the fish well. Here’s a tip: pour the coco squash over hot rice and take the dish to another level.
Cream Dory (P160) — Another must-try, the battered deep fried Cream Dory comes served with rice, coco squash, and tartar sauce. You’ll find yourself craving even more bite after bite.
Pancit Palabok (P115) — Can well be considered as another menu standout. A serving is generous and may be shared by two. It’s also not too dry or too salty. Pancit Palabok fans are sure to be charmed by this version from Coco Hut.
Barbeque — Another Pinoy staple dish is rendered well and right; you won’t find yourself struggling for a bite. Can be ordered as a meal with rice and atchara (P175) or in several pieces to be enjoyed with family and friends. Five pieces in 9 inches go for P245 while five pieces in 12 inches go for P365.
Banana ala Mode (P65) — Cap off your meal with this Pinoy dessert made of warm dulce Saba topped with your choice of langka or vanilla ice cream. We tried langka. It was heavenly.
These are just some of the items in Coco Hut’s menu. There’s definitely a lot more. Other must-try items are of course, its bestselling Fried Chicken which comes in classic or spicy. You can choose and pay for whatever chicken part you want or go for a two-piece order if you’re hungry. Pair the Fried Chicken off with Coco Hut’s vegetables to make your meal a little more healthy. There’s Laing (P75), Coco Langka (P75), Bamboo Shoots (P90), and Monggo (P55).
If you want to bring the island life experience beyond the restaurant, Coco Hut also offers its Hutbox. This half and half box of 10 pieces 12-inch barbeque paired with either pancit palabok (P1,325) or spaghetti (P1,275) is a feast good enough for 10 people. Bring a Hutbox to your next office party or family reunion for fares that will please everyone.
Whether you’re craving for good old fried chicken, fish, and chips or looking for something a little different like vegetables or Poor Man’s fish, Coco Hut has something for you. Troop to any of its five branches with your officemates, family, and friends, and get a savory taste of the island life at this establishment.
