GASTRONOMIC DIARIES: Buddy's Pancit Lucban and More!


If i have foreigner friends who'll visit and would have to bring them out for a quick lunch in the metro or somewhere in the province, i wanna bring them to Buddy's. This all Filipino-Quezonian restaurant is one of my favorite. Their concept from interiors, all the way to their food is simply Pinoy. And it's so relieving to see the pride of Lucban, Quezon, making a  good name in the food business around the city today with over 11 branches.

I simply love the festival-themed facade of this restaurant, Pahiyas Festival, specifically. I used to frequent their branch in Makati before and i always love the pancit and lumpia! Just recently, we visited their branch in Lucena City, Quezon, one of the pioneering branch of Buddy's and i'd thought of sharing why i love Buddy's all the time!

Php 200

I've tried different pancit recipes and still, i love Pancit Lucban or most popularly known as Pancit Habhab. All time favorite! The flavors of meat, vegetables, noodles and all the spices mixed in a platter is just so good. I can eat it everyday, provided i need to hit the gym twice! Kidding! 

Php 120

One of the reasons why i love Buddy's too is their affordable breakfast menu. If you're hitting the workday and you need to have breakfast outside your home, then its a go-to restaurant to fuel up for the long day. I personally love the TapSiLog! Well, i'm a pro-beef and egg, kind of person, but basically as long as i have eggs, then its more than okay! 

Php 85

If i am on the usual hasty situations and suddenly felt the need to re-fuel up myself with a quick tummy fix, Lumpiang Ubod or Fresh Lumpia (with mixed vegetables) is my favorite. I simply love the peanut sauce and the serving is big. It's total value for money!

Php 425 (Large)

If you're tired of pancit and wanted to try out something special or handy like pizza, Buddy's is a mecca for affordable pizza too. They've been known in the province for their pizzas and pasta. We've tried it recently and i had nothing but good words to say. They also offer different twists of pizza like Longganisang Lucban with Kesong Puti Pizza and their Vegetarian Supreme, hello vegetarians!

Php 65

I love burgers! Like mushrooms, they are popping out in every corner nowadays. But just recently, I've tried Buddy's Longganisa Burger. Basically, the patty was Longganisang Lucban with egg. It's one of the best burgers I've ever tried and i just love the sweet taste of longganisa on it. The egg and other flavors of the ingredients added into it blended so well.

Php 85

While Budin or Cassava Cake is famous and a hit at Quezon province, i'd like to have it for take out as "pasalubong". It's a great breakfast "kakanin" too for me, paired with fresh brewed coffee. What we usually order for dessert, especially if i'm with my mom is Halo-halo. As long as there's halo-halo for her she's definitely more than okay. I love the halo-halo at Buddy's because of the generous serving of fruits and other ingredients especially the milk, plus an ice cream on top. It's so "sulit" for Php 85.

In a nutshell, Buddy's can be anyone's favorite! Food taste and value for money is definitely a strong point of this pinoy pride restaurant and i'll never get tired of coming back for more!
