Hapag Heritage Cuisine

10.28.2016
Restaurants and other food businesses are booming everywhere, food parks, innovated food presentation and fusions of different cuisines. As Filipinos we love to try out new dishes but let's not forget how our own culture cooks. In the famous street of Maginhawa we discovered a restaurant where old school filipino dishes are served, Hapag Heritage Cuisine.

Opened last September 28 Hapag Heritage Cuisine is still on their soft opening. The restaurant is a homey, old school, nostalgic restaurant which serves their loved homemade filipino dishes. What's great about them is they make everything from scratch, no msg and food enhancement so everything is authentic and top quality. They wanted to serve and bring back traditional and native food since right now what we mostly see are infused or modern filipino dishes and share to the youth and even bring back memories to our lolos and lolas.






From the food to the interiors, Hapag has stepped up by reminding us our heritage through the interiors and share to us what they serve at home. You will notice the wooden tables and chairs, cabinets and sto. ninos which you can see at our grandparents's house. Another great thing is they have displays of paintings from Cottolengo Filipino, which is a non-profit organization for the abandoned, neglected persons with disabilities.

Now on to their food.

RIPE MANGO SMOOTHIE (P120)
OH MY GOSH, this is one of the best mango smoothies I've ever tasted. It has an ice cream like texture and the taste is perfect! I love how it was presented in a "halo halo" like baso. The price represents for the taste, and you'll never go wrong with mango :)

LANGKA SMOOTHIE (P120) SEASONAL
I was never a fan of langka but this tasted wonderful! Again it has that ice cream like texture, you can just scoop it with a spoon! 


MANOK NG HAPAG (P470 WHOLE)
Of course I will never miss out on chicken. This is their signature chicken served on a dahon ng saging. The chicken is tender and very tasteful especially the skin. You should look out for this one.


GINISANG HIPON SA TABA NG TALANGKA (P480)
Taba ng talangka, I know when older people hear that they stay away from it haha! Since people with high blood pressure avoids it but good thing I'm not one of them. Oh the sauce is tasteful with the salted egg topping, this whole dish is complete. The sizes and serving of the shrimp are generous.


TINAPA RICE (P240 PLATTER)
Yes for tinapa! This whole platter can stand alone since it has tinapa flakes, salted egg and diced tomatoes. This was recommended to us and it's one of the must try. The serving is good for 2-3 people.


CRISPY PATA NI IMA (P595)
As a Filipino what I first said after seeing this is "putok batok" hahaha! Their Crispy Pata is magnefique plus the sauce it comes with. The skin is crispy and the meat is flavorful, it's definitely to order.

SINIGANG NA SALMON SA MISO (P380)
I've tasted sinampalukang manok, sinigang na baboy but not salmon yet. Since their food aren't cooked with msg the sour taste in this dish is very authentic, it kicks at the end and I like that. The salmon was cooked perfectly!


PANDAN-MACAPUNO CHEESECAKE (P120)
When I think of cheesecake what comes to mind is blueberries or mango but this is different. Infused with a filipino culture now you can taste a pandan cheesecake! I was surprised with this one since it's new to me. The texture is exactly like a cheesecake but with a pandan taste. This is a must try!

ENSAYMADITAS WITH CHORIZO BILBAO
Hapag will soon expand their menus and this is one of their upcoming merienda, Ensaymaditas. Ensaymada topped with 3 kinds of cheese plus chorizo.

ENSAYMADITAS WITH TINAPA FLAKES
Again they never fail to surprise me because their ensaymaditas with tinapa flakes did! I did not expect how well cheese and tinapa flakes will go perfectly with ensaymada. It's a mixture of sweet and savory. I'm not sure yet with the price tho but this is good for meriendas.

Please do watch this video :)


Hapag Heritage Cuisine is definitely a must try. Filipino families will enjoy their dining experience in this homey restaurant. The service provided is A+ with the staffs hospitality and attentiveness to the customers' needs. This is a casual dining but the service is hotel-like. Plus another good thing is the parking space in front of the restaurant. All in all my dining experience is wonderful! If I should come back again I will bring my family :) Thank you Hapag for this!
