Restaurant Review: The Barko - Marilao Bulacan

We went for dinner at this place last night. As far as I am concerned it was a big mistake. The Barko is your basic beer house in the shape of a ship, with strings of various colored led lights. They have live music ( if you are into Lady Gaga, which I am not).

Obviously if you are a guy and want to go the route of trying to hook up with someone or courting one of the waitresses (this is as old as the hills here and a waste of time) this may be your cup of tea. One unique thing they do have is Hubbly Bubbly or Hookahs (no, not hookers dumbass!), no weed available, but, whatever.

Be warned, this place is not known for good food. It is a drinking spot plain and simple. We ordered pancit canton and the sahog was precooked and tasted old. I only ate the noodles. We had crispy pata that had been pre boiled then frozen. The meat near the bone was cold and it was tasteless. Further, they didn't even provide vinegar and soy sauce with chilis and garlic which is a necessity with this dish. We also had fried chicken that had been fried and then fried yet again and was the consistency of old shoe leather.

All in all, my call was a total waste of time. When I got home I watched Iron Man 2 and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I should have just stayed home to begin with. 


  1. I liked Barko's papaitan. Been there Jan 25, 2011.

  2. Wow! Really huh? Who’s with you when you come and hang out there?
