Sizzling bulalo is the house specialty of the Royal Suite Inn in Dumaguete City. A must-try if you’re in town! An order costs around Php 490 (but not more than Php500, and rice and drinks aren't included). This is already good for 3-4 persons -- depending on your appetite, of course.

For half a thousand pesos, you'll be getting a very large bone (beef shank) on a large sizzling platter. The bulalo's bone marrow is already mixed with the gravy, and it tastes just like creamy butter. Yum.

As delicious as it looks, however, be reminded that this dish is not good for those with health issues, such as high cholesterol or high blood. So keep your appetite in check, or share with lotsa friends!
