5 Dishes to Keep You Warm this Rainy Season
by Gabriel Cadiz
1. Bulalo

I know you want that marrow in your rice. Give in. We won’t judge.

Bulalo is one of the ultimate cravings when rain pours down hard. Beef shanks cooked into tender perfection, melting the goodies in the broth, creating a savory soup filled with the flavor of meat with each sip. This famous dish is known best around the south, and you can have one of the best bulalo dishes in the area at LZM Restaurant located in Tagaytay!

You can find LZM Restaurant at the 2nd Floor, Magallanes Square, Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City.

2. Beef Sinigang

This will remind you of a rainy day at home, while you feast on your mom’s version of this dish.

The beef sinigang is a household dish in the Philippines. The sour tamarind broth and tender beef shanks keeps you embraced with the warmth you crave during rainy days at home or at work. The tamarind blends and holds the whole broth with that perfect tangy twist. You can enjoy a bowl of tasty corned beef sinigang at Sentro 1771!

3. Pares

You just gotta try this. It’s worth the trip.

This modern Filipino street food favorite has that charming appeal to everyone. It is affordable, filling, and tasty at the same time! This delectable rainy season hitter is composed of braised beef cuts paired with fried rice, hence the name “pares.” The different variations of this dish mean that you will always have a new experience each time you have it! But one store claims the roots of this lovely rainy season favorite: The Original Beef Pares Mami House at La Loma, Quezon City. Their Beef Pares Retiro is a famous dish that you have to try yourself if you want to know what a “real” beef pares taste like.

The Original Beef Pares Mami House is located at N.S Amorante Sr. Avenue, La Loma, Quezon City.

4. Ramen

This Tantanmen will keep you warm as you wait out the rain before your trip home.

This Japanese dish that took the world by storm will definitely fill your tummy with warmth. This wheat-based noodles with meat or fish-based broth and various toppings does justice to the hype it is given. The Tantanmen, a spicy version of ramen, will make you sweat your scalp while you gulp that spicy broth as you realize that your bowl is empty, your cravings filled, and gets you hooked to the stuff. Mendokoro Ramenba, a Japanese restaurant in the heart of Makati will comply to your rainy day cravings for a bowl of this good stuff. Expect a queueing line when you go there though, but trust me, it is worth the wait.
