Stoops Bagnet Ilocos | Umaapaw sa Sarap

Are you from the South and craving for Bagnet?
Stoops Bagnet Ilocos BF Homes Paranaque is the place for you!

Another food trip venue here at the South, Stoops Bagnet Ilocos serves authentic Ilocano cuisine. Affordable, generous in serving and served fast, you get your money's worth with Stoops.

Located at Unit-103 CMSR Bldg. #8 President's Ave. BF Homes Paranaque City, residents from the South can add Stoops Bagnet Ilocos in their list of places to try and go back for some more.

Last May 10, I was fortunate to join the Bloggers Media South Group for Media Night where we are able to sample a couple of dishes that Stoops is serving. The group also learned the history of the brand, the product development and how the franchise took off.

The group was served with Bagnet Meals with a variety of side dish to go with the pork and Pancit Bagnet.

Bagnet Meal with TBA (Talong, Bagoong Alamang)

Bagnet Meal with KBL (Kamatis, Bagoong, Lasuna)

Bagnet Meal with KKB (Kamatis, Talbos ng Kamote, Bagoong)

Pancit Bagnet has the right combination of perfectly cooked noodle and the crushed bagnet toppings gave the dish its texture. You can also order the plain variant which is good on its own.

Bagnet Meals start at 105 pesos, comes with Plain or Garlic Rice.
Pancit Bagnet goes for 75 pesos, plain goes for 50 pesos.

I'll have to come back to try the Chicken Bagnet. This dish intrigues me.

Here are some photos of the place in BF Homes ParaƱaque. Very straightforward. You place your order and wait for a few minutes. Enjoy the meal in an air-conditioned restaurant with wi-fi access.

Here is the menu. Not included is the new product, the "StoopSilog".

Prices are accurate as of posting. Visit for updates.

Corporate History
The inspiration of putting up Stoops Bagnet Ilocos, a restaurant serving authentic Ilocano cuisine stemmed from Jay Seneres' acquired taste and craving for Ilocano food. He was then working for an airline company. Upon the invitation of his good friend and co-worker Galen Cid, they would spend vacations from work at Bacarra, Ilocos Norte, Galen's hometown. Galen's mother would cook Adobo Ilokano, Igado, Dinengdeng and Pinakbet from fresh meats and vegetables for them. Jay was introduced to bagoong with talbos ng kamote, kamatis and lasuna (native onions) -- to empanada, Sukang Iloko, Longganisa, atbp. And the most unforgettable of them all, the bagnet! Jay was hooked.

In Manila, Jay would search for restaurants serving Ilocano food but found no good ones. Frustrated, he suggested to Galen, that they open an Ilocano restaurant. The two friends agreed that they just needed a good business plan, a good product packaging and a good presentation for the concept to materialize. Still keeping their airline jobs, they decided to go for it! They came up with the name "Stoops Bagnet Ilocos". "Stoops" is actually a funny moniker they and their close friends call each other - a coined word that means "buddy".

Thus, in March 2008, the first Stoops Bagnet Ilocos fast food restaurant was opened along 1021 Pablo Ocampo St. (Vito Cruz) corner Arellano St. Malate, Manila. For two years, the first Stoops branch gained a foothold serving good tasting bagnet and other Ilocano dishes at affordable prices with fast and reliable service. Owing to a growing customer following, a second branch was opened in August of 2010 at Malugay St. Bel-Air, Makati City. Two more years later, in February of 2012, a third branch was opened in Legarda Street Sampaloc, Manila. For six years the three branches have been in operation under Stoops Bagnet Ilocos Company, a partnership formed by the two founders.

In May 2014, Jay Seneres, realizing the good potential of the business decided to franchise the Stoops brand and concept. He formed a new company - SBI Franchise Systems Inc. to handle the franchise business of Stoops Bagnet Ilocos. The Corporation will manage all future expansion of the brand.
