It is named after its street number address: 8065 Estrella. It is owned by Alain Nadal (older brother of a popular singer of our generation -- Kitchie Nadal) and his partner Jeff Tuason. It's been popular among Manila-based foodies for some time now.
Here is our 8065 Bagnet experience...
Check out the 8065 Bagnet Menu
They offer different versions of bagnet: spicy gata, sisig, dinuguan, curry, binagoongan and kare-kare. Which one is your favorite?
You can order it as a set meal (P105-P115) with rice and soup, or an ala carte meal good for 2 (P175-P195).
The Bagnet Kare-Kare was deliciously deadly -- it's like Bagnet with peanut gravy sauce and sweet bagoong (shrimp paste) with hints of coconut. I liked the crispy bagnet pieces, especially the rib parts.
This is the kind of comfort food for us, and we love it!
For the health-conscious foodies, you can order cream dory in curry, spicy gata sauce or shrimp paste sauce.
The cream dory was a bit thin and had a different color (that needed to be covered by the sauce). It tasted just ok.
8065 Bagnet is a just-right, feel-good place for when you are craving good comfort food in a homey, down-to-earth setting. (That's why we included it in the Top 100 Awesome Restos in Manila in the 2012 Awesome Planner. :) )
