We first ate at Kuya J Restaurant in Cebu maybe about 10 years ago. And 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, which 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 and they are still on the works for opening more branches this year. But even without Mr. Rosales, I believe that Kuya J will easily win the favor of Filipino diners all over the country because of their mouth-watering Filipino dishes, prepared with a twist but are perfect for the palate of local diners. Last year, hubby and I even had our anniversary dinner there.
As for our family, we do have our favorite dishes at Kuya J Restaurant when we dine over there. And here, we celebrate them all because we finally got to take photos of the dishes that we love.
Kuya J Specialty 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, and they are all flavored. You can also order steamed white rice for individual servings and it’s already unlimited. Kuya J unlimited rice is only P40. Check out these specialty rice platters below. They are mouthwatering already.
All-time Filipino Favorites
Kuya J Restaurant is all about Filipino food. But at Kuya J, there is always something different, a wonderful twist to your favorites. And they are soooo good. Here are our favorites.
As for dessert, Kuya J has this wonderful creation–the Tablea-Coffee Flan. It is not so sweet and it is perfect for dark chocolate lovers. Served with a single wafer on top.
