And yes, based on that photo above, a lot of people wanted to get fired up with some Pugon Roasters meals. The lines were long and the place was packed with people wanting good quality food at very affordable prices.
Chef Lau definitely did not disappoint with their signature Pugon Roast Chicken. It was still juicy when it was served. Also, there’s something about that marinade that makes it good sans the sauce. Coupled with warm rice, this was one comforting and satisfying lunch.
I wasn’t fond of their Kaldereta Mac. I really couldn’t understand its taste. Yes, it’s an interesting take on Kaldereta but I would have that dish anytime with rice.
Even if you buy their Carabao’s Milk Ice Cream in a cone, they would still ask you if you would like some syrup on it. But I suggest that you don’t in order to taste the carabao’s milk ice cream fully. I had the sundae sprinkled with some chocnut bits and drizzled with chocolate syrup, and I couldn’t appreciate the carabao. Their chocolate syrup somehow overpowered the whole ice cream that the flavor got lost in a way.
Though their claim of “fast good” is halfly true, I would still come back because the food is good. Halfly true because the service isn’t really fast. A bunch of us ate here for lunch, and some of my companions’ orders were served really late. Some of the servers had to go back several times just to verify the orders. I think its best to go here during off peak hours (post lunch hour to early dinner time) to really get the “fast good” Pugon Roasters experience.
