A few years ago, a friend introduced me to Ekit’s Foodhaus, more popularly known as the Pocherohan sa Mabolo. Since then I have been coming back for their famous and affordable Pochero (Filipino beef stew). Have you noticed that Pochero tastes especially good if nursing a hangover or coming from an overnight inuman session?
Aside from the binugoy dining experience, Ekit’s Foodhaus has been drawing in loyal customers because of the generous serving of Pochero. It’s not famously called the Pocherohan sa Mabolo for nothing. At only Php 50.00 a bowl, the soup is packed with tender beef, vegetables, corn cob and that heavenly but sometimes deadly bone marrow. The serving is BIG and can sometimes feed two people. I like pairing my Pochero with their free ginamos (fish bagoong) which increases the appetite – extra rice please!
Don’t be fooled by their carenderia façade, enter a small door and it will lead you to a backyard turned alfresco dining area. But Ekit’s Foodhaus doesn’t only serve Pochero, their other dishes are tasty as well, but changes from day to day, from sinugbang isda to chicken adobo.
Clearly, an eatery is popular when people go out of their way to look for it even if the location is a bit difficult to find. The Pocherohan sa Mabolo is located at the back of Sarrosa Hotel in Mabolo. We’ve even provided a map for easy navigation.
