Iggy’s Bonuan Seafood Restaurant: Bangus and More of the Simple Things in Life
Passing by South Drive (a lot *hihi), I found myself wondering what the ambiance was like at Iggy’s Inn. I had the perfect excuse for going in, the Bonuan Seafood Restaurant. (Brings back memories, hearing this restaurant advertised on the radio when I was young. ^^,)
One rainy night, Race and I found ourselves in the middle of a rain shower on South Drive. No place else to go for shelter and food but Iggy’s.
And so, I got to see inside Iggy’s. I was so fascinated with the chandelier in the lounge So that’s what was shining a welcoming glow on the windows. (They did their work on me. *heehaha)
The intricately carved dining tables are placed in the Iggy’s gallery (yes, they have one right beside the dining area). You and your party can dine in here…just make a request for it and Iggy’s will be glad to oblige you. =D
While waiting for our food, we looked around the gallery. (Some snippets at the end of the blog. (“,))
Iggy’s Juan dela Cruz salad and sinigang na kambing got our attention so that’s what we chose from the (somewhat limited) menu.
The sinigang na kambing (I wonder if there’s any difference to sinampalukang kambing.) gets two thumbs up from me. Oh my gosh, the sourness, WOW! I’m tingling all over. It’s almost like the soup from Tabligan’s…almost. The meat was tender and falling off the bone – I just love soft meat.
Finally, the curiosity that was piqued was satisfied. =D
Having somewhat of an addictive personality, I just had to come back to Iggy’s. A week later, I was back with Beth, Karla, and a dear friend (and her loved ones) who recently came back to Baguio.
For starters, we got bouillabaisse soup which was in want of more ‘bula’/bubbles. Also, taste…sinigang na kambing was still the Iggy’s soup for me. \m/
Yes, another plate of salad. We’re Baguio born and bred, what can I say. We love our veggies! Not that different with the Juan dela Cruz salad Race and I had on our first Iggy’s visit but oh well. I’m not one to back out on alamang/shrimp paste mixed with tomatoes, onions, green mango, etc.
Keeping with the theme of Iggy’s Restaurant, we had bangus/milkfish. No wondering about the taste here. It’s fish! (“,) I think it all boils down to the seasoning you mix up – bagoong and calamansi juice or soy sauce and calamansi juice. The ar-arusip, more greens…from the sea is a sure hit.
Bangus and the simple things in life, covered at Iggy’s.
When we were done with our meal, we took the time to look around the gallery. (Interesting how the items looked in the times that I saw them. They’ve got a different vibe from being viewed in the sun and in darker settings. Hhhhhmm *rubbing index finger on chin.)
X marks Iggy’s Bonuan Seafood Restaurant for good food in Baguio. That is IF you’re craving for simple Filipino dishes, you’re on South Drive and you want to eat NOW. *hihi
Food: Common dishes, I have to admit. The salad, we could make that in our own homes and there would be more for everyone. Bangus? We could make that ourselves too. As for the bouillabaisse soup, fail because it was runny. The only winner is the sinigang na kambing, I give that .
