Budbod Rice

Spoonful : Juana’s Budbod and Coffee

Juana’s Budbod and Coffee : where affordable price meets great tasting food!

From where i came from (cebu), budbod is a sticky rice wrapped in coconut leaf. Mostly eaten in the morning with our ‘sikwate’ ( hot choco). But in Juana’s, budbod is a special rice topped with our favorite Filipino viand – liempo, lechon, tinapa, beef tapa, adobo flakes and shawarma ( yes, i know the last one isn’t Filipino but its taste has been adjusted to the Filipino palate).

Juana’s Budbod is not just your usual “meat and rice meal”, along with your chosen topping are the freshest tomatoes, eggs and spring onions. So you have your carbs, protein and veggies in one spoonful!!

We were starving that day and thought that Juana’s is the perfect place to feed our hungry selves. Deciding on what topping to pick was hard as everything on their menu looks promising and appetizing!

So we agreed to get their Boodle Fight Meal. No doubt that it was the perfect choice. It had everything on it! The moment our order arrived, we started to dig in and everyone just went mute…hahaha. You can’t blame us, the food was delish!

Sadly, taking pictures of our food did not cross our mind (again, we were hungry like that). So I copied some pictures ( with permission of course ), from Juana’s facebook page to tickle your tastebuds. 😉
