I am a self-confessed meat-lover. I could not survive a week without pork or beef. So you could just imagine my excitement when I heard of Bagnet 8065.
Tucked in a quaint street in Makati, Bagnet 8065 is a not your typical hole-in-the-wall restaurant. I first heard of the place from my officemates, they have been raving about it for quite some time. I have been wanting to go there for so long, and finally had my chance last week.
First, let me tell you a bit about the place. The interior is packed with a mish-mash of furniture and knick-knacks. You can tell by the décor that the owner of the place is a free-spirited artist, a book-lover, a traveler and a bagnet-lover all rolled into one.

Will try to take a photo of the whole wall next time. :)
Bagnet 8065 has a simple (and very affordable!) menu. It has a selection of bagnet dishes cooked in every Filipino-way possible. They have vegetable and fish dishes as well.
The Original Bagnet was served with pickled green mangoes, bagoong and atchara on the side. Every bite of bagnet was crunchy and absolutely delicious. It was not like your typical lechon kawali. Their bagnet was not oily on the palate.
Bagnet 8065 is located at Estrella Street in San Antonio Village, Makati City. Parking may be a bit of a problem, though.
Hope you could try their dishes soon! :)
