Luna's Arroz Caldo

One of those late nights with my brother. He is that kind of person who drink and then... EAT.

So at about 1am, we were off to one of Bacolod's not-so-hidden treasures. Luna's Arroz Caldo. 

I forgot my tipsy state and drove along Lacson Street and stopped near Tay Tung High School to get this quick fix before going home.

The staff are very accommodating even if they were chopping millions of garlic on a nearby table. Oh okay not millions, probably 3 kilos of garlic. It just filled the place with garlic...hmmm....

Luna's Arroz Caldo is one of those places that is very consistent with their taste. Arroz Caldo is a rice porridge with chicken and spiced up with lots of ginger. Luna's is distinct among others. 

Of course it is the native chicken that they have on this amazing meal. (For me its pretty amazing especially if you are a bit drunk and you need more than alcohol in your stomach.)

Native chicken, also known to us Ilonggos as bisaya nga manok, is generally considered more tasty than its 45-day old sisters bought dressed (but they really aren't that dressed, they should call them birthday girls). The meat is more tasty and calls for some heavy biting incisors.

And then I just can't get enough and had to ask for a freebie... Just call out "Pwede kadugang kaldo?" (Can I ask for extra soup?) And they would serve you this little bowl of hot soup. Tip: You can ask for more. REALLY. Just don't make it like a soup-all-you-can treat okay? Hey, it's not everyday that we get extras on a 55 peso meal.

Drax, my brother's bestestfriends and technically my brother since I could remember, asked for extra fried garlic. They gave him a bottle of it. Now that's another clap for great service!

And the arroz caldo evaporated to thin air leaving an empty bowl with some bones for the dogs. Kalas!

After one steaming bowl of Luna's Arroz Caldo, this is a guarantee: 50% off on your being drunk ...and maybe a little more! 

How's that for a great night cap?!

P.S. I didn't get paid for this food blog. I just want to do this. And oh... my brother paid for everything.
