I can't believe it's been a couple of weeks already since I last wrote and promised you guys a post in the next, well, couple of weeks. Haha! Anyway, I am really excited to share a foodie place that  comes up with menu items that are conceptualized around one delicious Filipino pork dish: BAGNET! Oh yes, the crunchy, tasty bagnet that is reminiscent of the North. Glad to know that us Marikenyos need not travel that far though just to have a taste of yummy bagnet!

Yohel's Bagnet opened its doors to crunchy-crispy-pork-belly fans last April, and, as soon as I tried a piece of their original bagnet dish, I knew: this place warrants my, yours and everybody's visit! (I think a photo post in FB got tons of attention as soon as I uploaded it, hehe!)

Bright-colored interior with a videoke machine! Cool!

Sis and I had a hard time ordering. All dishes were tempting! Since I am beginning to doubt my cholesterol levels, I suggested we limit our order to three dishes... and try the others next time! Har har har!

Ladies and gentlemen, at this point I suggest you ready a couple of wet wipes or tissue to wipe off the drool from your computer screens.

The Kare-Kare Bagnet solo order (115 PhP for a solo meal, with rice) had a wonderful nutty flavor to it. The crunchy texture of the pork belly was a welcome twist from the usual soft tripe or pork knuckle. This one we will definitely order again.

The Binagoongang Bagnet (115 PhP for a solo meal, with rice) was another marvel. Crunchy cuts of pork belly nestled upon a piece of inihaw na talong smothered with bagoong. Imagine how heavenly this tastes with sukang Iloko! Yum!

Just to "titillate" your taste buds, here is another angle of the Binagoongang Bagnet. See how the crackle of the pork skin jumps right off your screen? Hehe!

I loved the Original Bagnet dish (105 PhP for a solo meal, with rice) most of all. It comes with your choice of sauce, but since I couldn't make up my mind, I ordered all the available sauces. Clockwise from left: Sukang Iloko dip, Lechon Sauce dip, Atchara dip, and my super duper favorite Bagoong Isda dip. Can I teleport to Yohel's Bagnet right now?

So, if you're craving for bagnet, no need to travel up north. Just look for Yohel's Bagnet across SDS hospital and have your share of well-prepared and delicious bagnet dishes that are guaranteed to satisfy.
