Boneless chicken steak with gravy and sidings (P240) at Juliana’s Cafe and Resto. May be shared by two people, as this is half a chicken.

In this city, Bacolod restaurants and eateries are a dime a dozen. It is like a phenomenon here that for such a small city and a relatively low population, our restaurants are flourishing. My visiting relatives would really comment on this and the common observation is, “Don’t you guys eat at home?”

The hototay, that can serve up to six persons P280. It has lots of vegetables, meatm and shrimps. So comforting.

But while there are many, there’s a few that really stand out from the crowd, either with their exceptional food, great service, lovely ambiance–or a combination of these qualities. There is one in Bacolod, however, that possesses all three, and that is JULIANA’S CAFE AND RESTO.

Juliana’s Sizzling Duck — a house specialty. Flavorful and tender (P350) and may be shared by 2-3 pax.

Despite their elegantly appointed interiors and cozy air conditioned restaurant, the food at Juliana’s Cafe is actually reasonably priced. Plus, the servings are quite big and can be comfortably shared. Specialties of the house, which are specially marked on the menu, are Chicharon Bulaklak, Hototay, Ox Tongue in Mushroom Sauce, Boneless Chicken Steak, and Juliana’s Sizzling Duck.

Chicharon bulaklak–another house specialty (P180). Crunchy, flavorful, and sinful haha.

I really like their flavorful duck dish, with its tender meat that could easily be pulled off the bones. Plus, they have so many fish, beef, pork, and chicken dishes. Will have to try them on my next visit.

This serving of morisqueta is P150, good for 4.

Depending on the dish, one order may be shared by two to four people. The Hototay, for example, may be shared by four to six people because it comes in a big soup bowl. Mix the egg before serving so that it can be cooked and add further flavor to the soup.

Salisbury Steak with egg and mashed potatoes (P220). So worth it!

For snacks or light meals, they have sandwiches likes hamburger with fries, cheeseburger with fries, and chicken sandwich with asparagus and chips.

We had the sizzling blue marlin in lemon-butter sauce and we enjoyed it. Prices vary depending on the weight of the fish.

They also serve affordable steaks, but among all those, what my kids eat is the Salisbury Steak, which they really love because of the tender and juicy beef patty. I ordered it medium well and that is exactly what we got.
