You can now savor Boy Abunda’ss Bistek at GoodAh!!! That’s right, the famous talk show host has joined the GoodAh!!! family and made his own beef recipe available on all branches. During a press briefing at the Metrowalk branch, we were able to taste Boy’s Bistek and it’s really delicious. I can even say that the sauce is enough for a good meal(“sabaw pa lang, ulam na”). That’s my kind of dish.
The King of Talk was a regular at GoodAh!!! when he was just starting his career in the 1980s. The quick-service restaurant has been in business for 33 years and was ahead of its time in the local dining industry by pioneering the round-the-clock operations. It’s tagline “Open 25 hours” is an assurance that people can dine and enjoy good food anytime, day and night. And that’s exactly what I did with my colleagues when I still work in a call center in Ortigas.
GoodAh!!! served rice meals and congee that are filling and worth every money you pay for. It’s our go-to place when we needed a fix of lugaw and goto (rice porridge), and popular breakfast fare, namely tapa, tocino and longanisa. The term “tapsi” to refer to an order of tapa (cured beef) and sinangag (fried rice) was coined by the restaurant. Adding fried egg to a rice meal resulted in what we now commonly enjoy as “tapsilog.”
Aside from tapsilog, there are tosilog, longsilog, adsilog (adobo, sinangag at itlog), and bangsilog (daing na bangus, sinangag at itlog). As years went by, its menu expanded to include a variety of Filipino favorites that are now staples in eateries and restaurants throughout the country. The 25-hour quick-service restaurant introduced dishes such as hot pot, noodle dishes, and more, to the delight of the Filipino consumers.
During the press conference, Tito Boy, as he’s fondly called, shared that the restaurant brand has been part of his life that he did not hesitate in accepting the offer as an endorser. But he opted to bring his relationship with GoodAh!!! a step further by becoming a business partner of Goodah!!! In a way, it was his life coming full circle: from regular customer to business partner at the restaurant he loved.
The relationship led to his own version of Bistek being made available at GoodAh!!! His favorite dish at the restaurant has always been its bistek, the favorite Filipino dish of stir-fried tender beef marinated in soy sauce and citrus. Knowing his way around the kitchen, he has his own recipe of the dish that he is sharing with GoodAh!! At the press conference, he even demonstrated cooking while sharing his tips in cooking it.
After more than 3 decades, GoodAh!!! is set to redefine the restaurant landscape with its patented brand of quick meals and personalized service with a casual dining ambiance. It is a dining institution that today’s millennials will surely embrace with its delicious value-for-money meals, just as many Pinoy food lovers have in the past. A quick look at the restaurant, one will see how it’s adapted itself to the new generation in a fun way.
