8065 Bagnet

If you want to lose weight and watch those calories or fat intake, well this blog post isnt for you. Hello, bagnet! My first encounter with a bagnet was through an officemate who brought me a kilo of it straight from Ilocos. And all I said to myself that time was "ngeee taba". But I was able to consume it all in less than 24 hours. Hello cholesterol!

For me, eating bagnet is one of those "sinful pleasures" - not good to do it everyday, but probably nice if once in awhile or during certain celebrations or meet ups. So, last week my friend and I decided to visit this resto that offers dishes that has something to do with bagnet. Hello 8065 Bagnet.

8065 Bagnet can be found in Estrella. Now dont be confused with the other Estrella near Rockwell. Dun kami pumunta kaya naligaw kami and spent more time looking for the right Estrella. So if you're aint familiar with the place, consider this: if your coming from Ayala Avenue, when you reached RCBC Plaza - turn left (Sen Gil Puyat aka Buendia), then sa kanto ng Chino Roces aka Pasong Tamo (landmark: Export Bank Plaza where across it is a gasoline station) turn right, then at the fourth block turn left - you'd know that you've reached Estrella coz there's a welcome arc with Estrella written on it, then around 4 blocks from the welcome arc is 8065 Bagnet (left side).

When we went there, it was around 2pm so we were the only ones around. It's a small and cozy watering hole. They offer free wifi access. There's some sort of a freedom wall where guests or diners can sign "hey i was here" or something. They also have this other wall filled with paintings and another area with old personal stuff like old pocket books, ids, even medals and trophies. Ive heard this resto is owned by Kitchie Nadal's brother.

They said we should try their "original bagnet" but my friend opted to get a binoongan bagnet and i had a bagnet spicy gata. Im not really a good food critique (sensya na po - Ive never been one ehehe) but I was really satisfied with our orders. Good meal for a reasonable price.

So if you're looking for good bagnet meal, value for its money, and cozy place to hangout with some friends - I'd say 8065 Bagnet is worth checking. :)
