The satisfaction you get during and after eating bulalo is quite unrivaled due to its rich and flavorful taste. But what makes this dish stand out and why is it considered as one of the best main dishes in the Philippines?

Bulalo is a beef dish that is made out of beef shanks, marrow bones and assortment of vegetables and spices. What makes this dish special is that is has a very satisfying and rich-flavored broth. This broth is produced when the beef shanks and marrow bones are boiled to perfection, until the fat and collagen of the beef meat and bones melted and mixed with the flavors of vegetables and spices. 

Bulalo originated from the southern part of Luzon in the Philippines, particularly in Batangas. Today, the dish can found in many local restaurants and eateries across the Philippines. Even though this dish is considered high in cholesterol, it is still one of the all-time, all-year favorite dishes of the Filipinos – even tourists from around the world can’t get enough of bulalo. Try it today and savor the taste (and don’t forget to eat in moderation).
