Conee’s Cansi, one of the longest running Bacolod restaurants serving cansi, has opened a bigger and better branch at 25th-Lacson Streets, Bacolod City. More food choices, too!
Conee’s Cansi has long been serving cansi soup along Narra Avenue, Shopping, Bacolod City. But several years ago, they closed up their shop but instead maintained their restaurant in Regent Pearl, Brgy. Alijis.
Thankfully, despite the opening of many Bacolod restaurants along Lacson Streets, the management has found a good spot so now, Conee’s Cansi and Sugba has a second branch at a more convenient location!
Cansi soup, that long slab of bone and beef, slow-cooked in a sour broth to tender perfection and served piping hot, is a well-loved dish among Bacolodnons. The soup itself can already move a couple of cups of rice among avid cansi eaters.
More often than not, a diner would remove the bone marrow, mix it with his rice, pour in hot soup and eat a spoonful of rice with a small slab of meat. No matter how sweltering the weather is outside, cansi soup is still a sought-after especially among locals. And Conee’s Cansi is among those local Bacolod restaurants that is famous for this.
More Than Just Cansi
As its name suggests, Conee’s Cansi and Sugba has a lot of sugba or grilled options. They have pork, fish, and chicken. We were able to try their grilled pork chop (P135) and it’s so tender and flavorful. They also have seafood favorites and short orders for merienda.
When you visit here, at least you know that you can have more than just cansi, as they offer other savory Pinoy favorites that are cooked well. It’s great when you have a big group of people and all have different taste preferences. At least at Conee’s you have lots of items to choose from.
One of their specialties is calderetang kambing, which I really wanted to try. Too bad it wasn’t available during our visit. Maybe for our next visit.
We are all use to having cansi in a simple Bacolod restaurant. Conee’s Cansi and Sugba brought it up a notch higher with nice interiors and seats and a clean restroom. Would be nice to bring guests here.
It’s not air conditioned though, to make you better appreciate your hot cansi soup and not be bothered by the sebo that forms when the soup cools down.
