Boy Abunda joins GoodAh!!! family

When television celebrity Boy Abunda was just starting in his career in the 1980s, he was a regular at GoodAh!!!, the 25-hour quick-service restaurant that served rice meals and congee.

GoodAh!!! was a concept ahead of its time in the local dining industry when it opened 33 years ago. In fact, its tagline “Open 25 hours” is an assurance that people from all walks of life, from office workers to jeepney drivers, had a place to go to no matter the time of day or night for their fix of lugaw and goto, and popular breakfast fare, namely tapa, tocino and longanisa.

Boy Abunda is not just an endorser but a business partner at Goodah!!!!

Did you know that it was Goodah!!! that coined the term tapsi to refer to an order of tapa and sinangag? The addition of a fried egg to a rice meal resulted in the staple that is now commonly known as tapsilog.

Through the years, its menu expanded to include a variety of Filipino favorites that are now staples in eateries and restaurants throughout the country. Aside from tapsilog, there is tosilog, longsilog, adsilog (adobo, sinangag at itlog), and bangsilog (daing na bangus, sinangag at itlog).

 That’s why when Boy was invited to become a business partner of Goodah!!!, he did not hesitate in accepting the offer. In a way, it was his life coming full circle – from regular customer to business partner at the restaurant he loved.

Boy’s favorite at GoodAh!!! has always been bistek, the favorite Pinoy dish of stir-fried tender beef marinated in soy sauce and citrus.

 Boy Abunda shares his own recipe of Bistek Tagalog with Goodah!!!!!

Boy, who knows his way around the kitchen, has his own recipe for bistek that he is sharing with GoodAh!!!. In fact, the restaurant has adopted Boy’s version of bistek for its restaurants and is renaming it as GoodAh!!! Boy’s Bistek in his honor.

After 33 years, GoodAh!!! is set to redefine the restaurant landscape with its patented brand of quick meals and personalized service with a casual dining ambience. It is a dining institution that today’s millennials will surely embrace with its delicious value-for-money meals, just as many Pinoy food lovers have in the past.
