Kuya J Restaurant Origins

We first ate at Kuya J Restaurant in Cebu more than 10 years ago. Many things have happened since then.

Now, their model of a restaurant is open for franchising and we already have a branch here in Bacolod City. It is located at the SM City Bacolod north wing (near the atrium). And if I may add, many people dine there whether for lunch or dinner.

Kuya J has also enlisted famous actor Jericho Rosales as its celebrity endorser, catapulting the restaurant to nationwide fame. By the end of 2015, Kuya J restaurant has opened a total of 30 stores nationwide. Moreover, they are still on the works for opening more branches.

But even without Mr. Rosales, I believe that Kuya J will easily win the favor of Filipino diners around the country because of their mouth-watering Pinoy dishes. These are prepared with a twist but are perfect for the palate of local diners. Last year, a few years ago, wifey and I even had our anniversary dinner there.

Kuya J Specialty Fried Rice

One of the things that we like about Kuya J is that they don’t just serve white rice, yellow rice, or garlic rice. They have interesting rice bowls for three to five persons, depending on how much rice you eat. Plus, they are all flavored.

Sinuglaw

Sinuglaw is the bestselling appetizer at Kuya J. It is a grilled pork (sinugba) mixed with the kinilaw (fish in vinegar). But it is presented this way, served with krispy kangkong. You can chop up the pork and mix it with the kinilaw for a wonderful fusion dish.

Baked Scallops

For fish lovers, you would really like this bangus. I think this is grilled inside a foil but because of its seasonings and chopped vegetables inside, the bangus is so flavorful. Must-try.

Tortang Talong

Krispy Tadiang

Hubby and I absolutely love the Krispy Tadiang. But make sure that you don’t order several fried dishes at the same time because it can be cloying. Partner this with other vegetable dishes and not with fried rice.
