There is something about the rainy season that I love. 

The cool weather that is perfect for cuddles.  The constant sound of the downpour inspires the mind to reflect.   It is a time to relax, chill, read a book or perhaps listen to some of my favorite music. 

The rain also brings a lot of childhood memories. Of playing in the street in the middle of a torrential downpour.  Afterwards, a delicious meryenda will be served. Either tsamporado and tuyo or sopas at puto or lugaw with sumpia (fried lumpia)I grew up in Malabon, and these were the types of food that I truly enjoy.   

The rainy season has officially started, and we just experienced the country's 2nd tropical depression to date - Butchoy.  Its been raining for days, and while I am still on my self-imposed lockdown (I have not left the house since I arrived from Sydney last April 29) - I can't seem to shake off my cravings for childhood merienda.  Good thing, GOTOBOX delivers!

Ordering is very easy! 

You may also opt to place your orders via FoodPanda or wheretoeat Philippines:

Sharing with you this video, of the food delivery straight to our house!  


Hats off to GOTOBOX, for delivering the food in tip-top condition. The goto selections were separated from their toppings so it won't get soggy during the travel. The Silogs were delivered in environment-friendly boxes, and despite the travel, they retained the pretty presentation.

And now you ask -- how about the taste?  

For goto, we ordered Lakan, Babalu, Catriona and Bossing Vic!  They all taste good, which reminds me of that Lutong Bahay appeal, especially when the gotos came in with lots of sibuyas na mura, fried onion and garlic!  As an ox-tripe lover, I loved Catriona!  My son liked Bossing Vic because of the isaw, and the hubby was amazed with the  buttery-goodness of Babalu's bone marrow!

For the Silogs - runaway winners are the Hungsilog, Tapsilog and Longsilog! The Beef Pares was also yum!


So the next time you have that nagging craving for goto and silog, you know where to order:

For Marikina peeps, within 3km radius of Gotobox in Gil Fernando Ave. Ext.  Brgy. Sto. Nino - rejoice because it is FREE DELIVERY!

If you are not from Marikina, you can still avail of delivery, pick-up and takeout.

And good news, starting June 14 - GOTOBOX will open its doors to dine in customers. But of course, with precautionary social distancing involved. Coz hey, that's the new normal  now!
