There's nothing more comforting than Filipino food. Always rich in flavor, each bite never fails to make me feel like at home. And at Hapag Heritage Cuisine, I didn't feel just at home, I felt like I had a gastronomical trip around the Philippines.

Hello, Hapag Heritage Cuisine.

This Filipino restaurant tucked inside the foodie haven Teachers Village was one of the stops of a sponsored food crawl I've recently attended.

Stepping inside would transport you to your favorite grandparent's home where you get spoiled with scrumptious homemade food. The quaint ornaments displayed on the shelves and wooden furniture makes one feel right at home.

For this visit, we sampled Tinapa Roll (PHP210), Bagnet Vigan (PHP350), Sinigang na Bangus sa Bayabas (PHP360), Kare-Kareng Baka (PHP370, regular | PHP560, family), Tinapa Rice (PHP250), Binagoongang Kanin (PHP240), and Suman (PHP130).

Service was pretty fast as the dishes were served in less than 15 minutes.

I first sampled the Tinapa Roll and it was on the salty side. It wasn't surprising though as the small smoked fish does have a salty flavor. It is best to dip it in the sweet brown sauce it comes with or you might want to try dipping it in vinegar.

The Bagnet Vigan was delightful! Sourced all the way from Vigan, Ilocos Norte, this local favorite has that addicting crunch that would make you want to finish half of the plate (or the whole plate if you're extra hungry). Best to pair this with rice.

I fell in love with the Sinigang na Bangus. The grainy and sweet broth with the soft milkfish was delicious! It even made those not fond of this dish into fans! It was so good that we had to request for a second bowl. I also liked that Hapag carefully filtered the guava seeds as I didn't get a single seed after wolfing down two servings.

Kare-Kareng Baka was good too. I liked that it had generous serving of ox tripe, beef brisket, beef knuckles and vegetables. The peanut-y sauce was spot on too. It was thick, just the way I like it. However, as I was about to finish my second spoonful, I noticed that there was a small piece of hair on my portion. It sure made me lose my appetite for it.

I prefer the Binagoongang Kanin over the Tinapa Rice as its blend of sweet and salty flavors was more interesting for me. Also, I got hurt by some fish bones from the tinapa rice. So be careful if you decide to get the latter.

To cap our meal, we had Suman with Gata. It was your usual sticky rice with thick coconut sauce topped with slices of mangoes. I consider this dish more Asian than traditional Filipino though.

Overall, it was a pleasant visit and I'll definitely swing by again for some bagnet and sinigang na bangus sa bayabas.

“Hapag” is a Filipino word which we rarely use these days. It simply means “dining table.” Hapag Heritage Cuisine is a restaurant that obviously embraces Filipino culture right through its core, and is definitely an asset in the Maginhawa food strip.

Going here on a sponsored invite, we were welcomed with their refreshing langka smoothie. This boosted my appetite, as the fruit flavor was elaborate in every sip, complemented by fresh milk and fine ice.

The owners of Hapag Heritage Cuisine, together with their partner chef, were both present then to offer us their Filipino dishes. There were eleven dishes that have been placed in our hapag, and around ten of us scrambled out to spot our own favorites, which we have tried later on.

If you are to ask me what I loved most from all the dishes, I would have to say that I love their tinapa-filled fried rice. I was enticed with its aroma, as well as its striking taste. Surprisingly, this actually complemented with their kare-kare and kalderetang baka sa gata. Go ahead and try them for yourself when you go here for a visit.

Another must-try here in Hapag is their ginisang hipon sa taba ng talangka. They did not scrimped on the crab fat that it would actually linger in your mouth for a while. You can tell that the shrimps were cooked just right as their shells detach easily. Just try to feel guilt-free after indulging yourself into this one.

Their crispy pata was hefty for only Php595. The meat was deep fried, but it’s still tender, with hints of crispiness. The sauces that come with it just bring out the crispy pata’s flavors all the more. For dessert, they have served us their pandan cheesecake. This dessert has this bold aroma from pandan and a bursting sweetness that matches well with the salty cheese. Its texture was creamy and not too dense.

Hapag finally opened its doors to customers! Hurray! 11088

Unlike other restos in Maginhawa, Hapag has parking space in front. (Woohoo!) Love the ambience of the whole place too.

Hapag Heritage Cuisine serves delicious Filipino dishes. We tried Beef Kare-kare and Kinilaw na Hipon. Two thumbs up!

Can't wait to try the other dishes. I heard Tinapa rice and Morcon were superb. Wondering when I can visit next. 9786
