One of my favorite haunts at the Tiendesitas Food Village is Jose’s Goto and Pinoy Specials. Like most of the other food stalls in the area, Jose’s has a number of Filipino favorites on the menu like lechon kawali, pork chops, and bangus. But whenever I stop by Jose’s, it’s usually for their soup or arroz caldo.
I’m a big soup freak and lately, the weather has been cool enough for me to have a piping hot bowl of mami or goto without even sweating a drop.
After eyeing the menu for a couple of minutes, I decided on a bowl of batchoy.
Compared to the la paz batchoy at Jollibee and Pinoydon, Jose’s batchoy definitely gives value for your money. For only 55 pesos, you get a large, steaming bowl filled with noodles, chicharon, chicken, liver, and egg. It’s an extremely satisfying meal that I can almost never finish because there’s just that many ingredients in it. Try it out yourself – Jose’s Goto and Pinoy Specials is located at the center of the Food Market.
