Goldilocks is a Filipino chain restaurant/bakery. Founded in 1966. Currently 420 locations throughout the Philippines, including 22 in Manila. Offers typical fare that Filipinos like on the cheap and quick, like pork stews and chicken barbecue. Most of the items are cafeteria-style ready-to-serve, available in combinations with rice.
Bopis is a Filipino dish. Random bits of pork, including meat and innards and skin, braised or stir-fried with spices in soy sauce. Often served as a pulutan (finger food), typically eaten with beer -like Korean anju.
It wasn’t to my liking. I had no idea what bopis was at the time, just pointed at whatever looked okay. The dish didn’t seem to include much in the way of meat or innards, mostly skin, with little tufts of hair, and fat, and loads of oil. Everything was too porky for me.
