Bagoong Club serves mouth-watering Filipino dishes. Most menu items are flavored with “bagoong” or shrimp paste. Obviously. Some dishes are traditional Filipino dishes. A few ones are unique regional dishes. But majority of the menu items are familiar Filipino dishes prepared and served with a unique twist. From appetizers to desserts, there is something interesting to try.

Every meal starts with a complimentary serving of singkamas (jicama) sticks and a sampling of their two bagoong varieties: spicy and sweet.
