The Philippine Navy Golf Club (PNGC) in Bonifacio Naval Station, Fort Bonifacio is not only a good place to enjoy a few rounds of golf, but also eat hearty. It is a frequent stop when my family is in the area for Sunday lunch, and here is what we had this time around:
Beef and Mushroom Salpicao (₱295) One of the newer menu items. These tender beef cubes have a rich, wonderful soy and garlic flavor that is best with rice. The only concern I have is that the sauce is overflowing with melted margarine. If they were to tone it down, I would enjoy this even more. Rating: 4/5
Sinuglaw (price not noted) It was our first time ordering this sweet and sour concoction consisting of sinugbang baboy (grilled pork), onions, cucumber, herbs and spices in sabaw (soup). The sourness is the best part of the dish, as it is mild yet still flavorful enough that I do not need additional condiments for the pork. Rating: 4/5
Garlic Chicken (Half ₱190; Whole ₱355) A constant item whenever we visit, each bite of this chicken is tender and incredibly garlicky. I usually request additional garlic chips to sprinkle on the chicken because one can never have too much garlic. Forget worrying about bad breath later, enjoy and savor the goodness now! Rating: 5/5
Sinigang Miso Salmon Belly (₱295) The ever-popular soup contains slices of pink salmon belly, tomatoes, onions, okra, and kangkong (water spinach) in a thick miso soup. The stronger the sour taste, the better, in my opinion. Thankfully, the sinigang is also mild enough to accommodate other tastes. I like ladling some of the soup and veggies over the portion of rice that I'll eat for an extra sour zing. Rating 4/5
Pinakbet (₱175) Another favorite of mine, this dish consists of squash, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, okra, ampalaya (bitter gourd), and pork or shrimp in fish or shrimp sauce. The overall results is not too salty, and a bit bitter thanks to the ampalaya. I personally avoid that like the plague. I also like to ladle the sauce and the veggies over my rice to give it extra flavor. Rating: 5/5
Garlic Rice (price not noted) You never go wrong with garlic rice. The one served in PNGC is moist and fluffy, with that heavenly garlic flavor wafting to the nostrils as soon as the lid of their small bowl is lifted. Rating: 5/5
Chicharon Bulaklak (price not noted) The eternal drinking party partner in the Philippines. These are deep fried pig intestines served with spiced vinegar. Take care to eat in moderation as they are not the healthiest of snacks. But one doesn't really care when they're downing a few bottles now, do they? Rating: N/A (I didn't eat it for health reasons)
Overall rating: 5/5
Once again, PNGC has not failed me in delivering quality family food that makes Sunday lunches worth it. I say it is a mission incredibly accomplished.

PNGC restaurant is one of our go-to restaurants for good, affordable Filipino food. Servings are for sharing. The restaurant is located in the clubhouse and despite no air conditioning it's pretty cool in the evenings.
It has a very old school feel - the family style setting, the plates and utensils, the menu. The waiters have been working here for years and if you're a regular they'll surely welcome you back every time. Of course many golfers dine here but it is open to anyone with a hungry belly.
We came in here to celebrate our yaya's birthday. We ordered pansit canton (for long life!), sisig, ampalaya & beef, tempura, grilled marlin and chicaron bulalaklak. I'm not a fan of pansit by my friends who've tried this swear it's very good. Sisig was all crunchy goodness. Ampalaya had that nice bitter bite. The seafood we ordered were both cooked just right. My Hs favorite is the chicharon. An order is about 150-300 per dish.
To get here you have to enter thru the main gate of the navy base near Nichols. I'm guessing they're open really early as people tee off by 530AM. They cater and have an area on the 2nd floor for private functions. Unfortunately they don't deliver.
No need to dress fancy here as this is not like the high end golf courses some of you might be used to.

One of my favorite resto in metro manila after a tiring game in the green or in the range eating in their clubhouse is a must. My favorite garlic chicken is heavenly, diningding is rhe best all of their food are delictable. With very good service waiters are very accomodating nice view of the green and most of all very affordable. I will always make it point to eat here after a game or driving.
