Pat Pat's Kansi Bulalao - Makati City Review

I was brought to the best bulalo place here in Makati. And it is not your average bulalo place, it actually serves "kansi". Kansi is an Ilonggo dish originated from Negros Occidental, which is a mix of bulalo (beef bone marrow and vegetables soup) and sinigang (sour pork soup). So imagine a very tasteful meaty soup with some sourness. Its the best! 

I would recommend you to head over to Pat Pat's Kansi to try kansi. Its just around 8809 Kamagong cor Sampaloc St San Antonio, Makat. They are open from Monday to Saturdays 10AM-10PM. You can also call in to reserve (since its always jam packed) 8906179. They have ample parking for 3 cars. Facebook page

Check out some pictures below to get a feel of what Pat Pat is like. It is not your fancy restaurant. It is not air conditioned, the seats are not covered, place is not decorated. BUT the food speaks for itself and brings people to its doors every opening day. Besides the staff is friendly, whenever I ask for a soup refill they do.

Overall: 5 out of 5. Worth the travel. Food = price. Love the unlimited soup refill. I'm a sucker for soups.
Location: Easy to find and have parking for 3.
Ambiance: Homey feeling. 

Price: Not hard on the budget. You can order 1 kansi laman soup (PHP125) and 2 rice (PHP20 per cup). You have unlimited soup anyway.  
Food: Tastefully made. Just the right amount of meat and seasoning.   
Service: Servers were attentive.

Star of the store - unlimited soup
Happy tummy. My hearty lunch. PHP145.
The soup was served warm and it has a sour taste of sinigang which I always loved. The meat was well heated that it was soft and very tender. I did not have any problem chewing. Only had 1 rice but was tempted to order another. It was that good. BUT the best thing about Pat Pat is they have unlimited soup refill, just for the soup no meat of course. Still it means a lot to me since I love soup! Will definitely be back. LOVE IT! Try it!

Happy tripping.
