Coco Hut offers new twists to local dishes, a few of which I have listed below:

Poor Man’s Fish
Galunggong sliced in half and fried until crisp, served with a creamy Coco Squash soup and rice. The galunggong goes well with soy sauce, vinegar, and some patis (guests can mix and match their sauces at the counter). This adds a nice salty and sour bite to go along with its natural crunch.

Take the time to enjoy the Coco Squash while it is hot, as the mixture of coconut milk and puréed squash helps to dampen the intense flavor of the fish.

Breakfast meals:
1) Tapa ala Pobre
2) Longganisa
The classic silog meals: thinly sliced beef tapa with fried garlic chips or peppery halved longganisa served with a fried egg and garlic fried rice. Each bite of the tapa contains a rich taste of soy sauce, pepper, and garlic while the longganisa tastes of garlic and annatto. I suggest cutting up the egg separately from the rice in order to better appreciate the garlicky, annatto oil taste of the rice.

Coco Shake
Coconut shake in Coco Hut. Creamy, milky, with bits of young coconut included in each sip. Perfect for buko shake lovers.

Teamarind
Iced tea but using tamarind instead of lemon. The taste is surprisingly refreshing, and the expected bitterness from the tamarind instead becomes a pleasurable little bite.

Banana ala Mode
For dessert, try some of these caramelized sliced bananas under a scoop of vanilla or langka ice cream. Cooling and mildly sweet. The warm, sugary syrup of the bananas complements the chilly texture of the ice cream, leading to a great experience.

As I stepped inside Coco Hut, I felt like I was in Army Navy. And so I learned from their staff that the two are sister companies. There are similar items, particularly their Filipino breakfast meals.

I also observed the store’s lack of brand identity. Although the ambiance fits a hut, everything else seems lost. Their main products are fried chicken and a selection of fried fishes. They also serve a range of American and Filipino. All the while I thought it was about anything coconut. Surprisingly, only their vegetable dishes have coconut in them.

Nevertheless, this merienda stop was generally satisfying. The staff was friendly and food was budget friendly. Spicy Fried Chicken was incredibly tasty even if I had white meat. The Bamboo Shoots had a kick of spice and a strong coconut taste. And the Coco Squash which was soup like became a nice add on to my warm plain rice.

This is definitely one of the decent dining spots at the Bonifacio Stop Over. It is located at the third floor.

I love how cocohut value branding without compromising quality. That ability to serve the unexpected from what is expected. There is nothing really fancy with their interior,but I'd say that on a positive note. A pale shade of wood and the strength exuded by the colors of concrete. It's like a kubo and a building fused to display simplicity and intricacy at the same time.

As for the foods, they are impressive. They are not over the top, only that unpretentious type of goodness. The poor man's fish was my favorite. Galunggong fried to achieve that crispy goodness garnished with onion chives and siling labuyo. A few drops of their soy vinegar sauce and you might want to attack the food with your bare hands with one leg up your chair. It is also served with a soup they call the coco squash, interestingly grainy by texture but lacks seasoning. Not bad, but certainly not my favorite. Nothing much to say about their calamares. Descently fried but nothing much going on in terms of the breading used. The coleslaw isn't impressive as well, though It worked in neutralizing the after taste of labuyo from the poor man's fish. We've been curious about their curry and tipsy mussels so we've tried them both. Curry mussels just had the right amount of curry powder not overpowering the taste of garlic, onions and mussels. Tipsy mussels, on the other hand, missed to highlight wine that should have been a surprise. It was almost like eating the typical boiled tahong that is decently flavored. Yes, it wasn't a disaster but to have something short from it's potential can be frustrating. Barbeque is good. Pinoy style marinade, sweet and flavorful. Could have been better if the pork is more tender. We also had cream dory which was perfectly fried and descently seasoned. I actually love their teamarind. It's like bringing the authentic taste of tamarind from the past to match today's commercially available iced teas.

In general, cocohut is something to consider as a good alternative to the more popular fast food chains in the metro. If you want to experience the nostalgic feel of provincial style goodness in food without having to travel hours on the road, this is the place to be! #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway

First time I entered coco hut, I knew I was going to order their crispy fish fillet, and it did not disappoint. I've been having it for the last 3 times I was there. :)
The squash that goes with it compliments the dish very well and that's coming from me who doesn't eat squash (and most vegetables except for Laing which they also serve and is really good too!)

Availed their 2pc chicken with rice for 195php. (No drinks. 128548) waited for like 20mins before they served our order (chicken meal). Thats how we know that their chickens were cooked only upon order. So better not go here super hungry. Their classic chicken was kinda bland. The spicy chicken was delicious though it was not that spicy. Their palabok and soranghon were tasty and but i liked the sotanghon better than the palabok. The monggo was just okay. Nothing special, small cup for Php55. Their pancakes were really delicious, it's thick and fluffy. Maple syrup was refillable. 128516 Yay! 128588

Coco Hut specializes in fried chicken and fried fish with a tropical feel. Their menu has Filipino influence and they serve healthy Filipino comfort food. Don't be confused with the dining hall set-up. The look is familar to its sibling company, Army Navy, and owned by one of Yellow Cab's founders.

Their menu consists of Classic and Hut (spicy) Chicken, mussels, soup, vegetables, palabok, spaghetti, salad, barbecue, fish, dessert and all day filipino breakfast meal. I'm not a fan of their peppery chicken but I'm happy to come back for their crunchy and yummy Poor Man's Fish (deep fried galunggong tossed in leeks and chili, served with rice, coco squash and spicy soy vinegar sauce) and TEAmarind (freshly brewed Tamarind iced tea). Similar taste to Army Navy's LiberTEA with a kiss of tamarind.

The food is cooked as you order, so be prepared to wait 15 minutes for your food.
