Make Ate Rica’s Bacsilog for Your Next School (Or Office) Lunch

May 14, 2019

Ate Rica’s Bacsilog has saved budget-conscious students in Taft since 2006. We hacked their signature rice, bacon, egg, and cheese sauce combo. And we think our version deserves a passing grade.

Be right bacsilog.

The sauce is not actually sweet on its own, which is why you need to use honey-cured bacon for that signature Ate Rica’s sweetness. For the sake of authenticity, we suggest not fussing too much about the sunny-side up. The slightly burnt, dry yolk egg is part of the bacsilog experience, after all.
