Spaghetti Recipe ala Makati Supermarket

with 4 comments

Since I was a kid, when someone mentioned “the best spaghetti in town,” none topped my taste palette than Makati Supermarket’s version. I remember when the old location burned down where Glorietta now sits and Makati Supermarket re-opened again, there was a flurry of people rushing to its opening day and beyond simply because they missed the spaghetti. Long before Jollibee and Italian bistros, Makati Supermarket’s spaghetti was the best.

Here’s a blog from a Filipino Foodie who’s giving away a recipe that would probably taste as good as the famous dish (don’t hold me liable as I haven’t tried to cook it – yet!). Click to go to

Recipe and cooking instructions from the link can also be found below.

500 grams spaghetti noodles
1/2 cup olive oil
1 head garlic, minced
1/4 kilo ground beef
1/4 kilo ground pork
5 pieces hot dog sliced diagonally
1/4 cup vienna sausage, sliced
1/4 cup sweet ham, sliced in small squares (1/2 inch by 1/2 inch)
1 bottle banana catsup (don’t substitute!)
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup chopped green and red bell pepper (some don’t really like pepper so this may be optional)
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated cheese


1. Cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions.

2. In a kawali or wok, sauté garlic and onions in olive oil.

3. Combine ground beef, ground pork, bay leaf, green and red bell pepper and a cup of water in the wok. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

4. Add tomato sauce, banana catsup and allow to simmer for 10 more minutes

5. Add brown sugar, vienna sausage, sweet ham and hotdogs. Simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Add a little more water (maybe 1/2 cup more) till you get your desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.

7. Serve separately with cooked spaghetti noodles and grated cheese on top.
