First off, they don't serve Chao long. But if you don't what that is its Pork blood porridge. If that grosses you out and you like delicious beef stew noodles, You're in luck. I was craving Vietnamese food for two weeks in the PI before I visited Puerto Princessa. It was so comforting to slurp the those noodles with the... More

It's a stick to your ribs kind of dish. I had the beef stew chao long and my girl got the pork chao long. Both are very delicious and have clean flavors. For 75 pesos each, you won't be able to fit into your pants anymore. :) It was awesome, flavorful and with different textures. It's a simple yet complex... More

Great place to eat. Highly recommended. Philippino pho is delicious here. Lots of sauces and things on tables to play with the flavours and the heat. I had spicy beef but the pork also looked really good.

Come ber months, weather in the city is a bit cold and wet especially by the evening. Vietnamese pho noodles are best served during these seasons. While the authentic trace of Vietnamese pho considering their history of seekinh refuge in the island, the distinct Pinoy sweet taste has been mixed with it. And Bona's chao long is one of the...

Love their food. Excellent French bread. The place is a little rundown and dingy, but then the prices are low and the food is good. Highly recommended!
