A First Try of J.Co Donuts

Leave a Comment
I know J.Co Donuts has been here in the Philippines for several years now but this is my first try at tasting it. Blame it on the very few times my family and I had the chance to go out for the two previous years or so. We barely went out or ate out. Although I am not complaining since  my family enjoyed eating together at home most of the time, the child in me wanted to try out the many food items being advertised.

It is a good thing that we are having more chances to go out and enjoy these days. In one of our family's simple day out, our parents allowed my brother and I to buy any food we want to bring home. We both decided to go into a J.Co Donut Store and came out with this box of 6 donuts.

I asked the lady in the store what she can recommend. She quickly pointed to the Cheezy Rich which she says is their bestseller. So I said yes to this ensaymada-looking donut and chose the Caviar Strawberry and the Why Nut. My brother chose the Green Tease, Sugar Ice, and Crunchy Crunchy. There were actually many more to choose from but we will probably get to try them next time. 

Verdict: Really delicious!

Our family was already feeling hunger pangs even before the Recognition Day in my children's school was over. Like most other Filipino families who love to celebrate with good food after, we were already thinking of where to eat. My family was looking for something different, filling, and informal. Then I remembered Babanoks.


Babanoks Restaurant is an unimposing and informal eating place located at Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Puting Kahoy, Silang Cavite. Because it is practically open in front and at the two sides, it is very airy and cool with the natural breeze of the place used to its advantage. In case you are wondering what the name means, it stands for Baka, Baboy, and Manok, thus the perplexing mascot shown above.

This is not the first time I ate at Babanoks since I came here before with my office-mates after work. I thought my husband and son who are both voracious rice eaters  would appreciate the Babanoks special which came with a generous amount of rice. So we agreed to go here right after the school activity.

Our Food Orders

Babanoks Special

Chorizo and Egg

Lechon Kawali

The two men in the family chose the Babanoks Special, as expected, while my daughter chose the chorizo and I opted to try the lechon kawali. My children requested for pork barbecue as well although I failed to take a picture as we were already eating when it came. We all had sago gulaman for some coolness and sweetness.
