Whenever I crave hot bulalo soup I always think of Hoseña's, that hole in the wall near Kalentong corner Shaw boulevard extension.
A friend introduced me to it in one alcohol-induced night and we had to lower down our alcohol level. He, in turn, had been introduced to it bya friend who worked in the entertainment industry. Apparently, this is where the old dogs of showbiz go to when they are in need of some hot lovin' in the form of beef broth and marrow. But looking at the place, you wouldn't think that showbiz denizens would set foot in this place.
The rundown two-story building houses a bakery owned by Hoseña's. A tight flight of stairs leads you to a room sparely decorated with bull horns.
Depending on what they have available in the kitchen, the food attendant will ask you to choose what you want with your bulalo soup- marrow, meat, goto (innards) or litid (cartilege).
It will be served piping hot, served with patis and calamansi.
