Rain or Shine Elasto Painters veteran Beau Belga has ventured into entrepreneurship, with his newly-opened restaurant called ‘3B’s by Beau Belga Extra Rice.' a name derived from his PBA moniker.


Belga is known for his brawny build, which earned him the nickaname "Extra Rice" from his days playing with former teammate JR Quinahan. The name stuck even as the pair broke up via trade.

The Rain or Shine big man received warm support from his teammates and fellow PBA players, Gabe Norwood and Ryan Araña, for his new venture.

“Teka teka, sa’n ‘yan at mapuntahan na," commented Ryan on Beau’s Instagram post.

“Congrats bro!" added Gabe.

The 3B’s by Beau Belga Extra Rice is located near the historical Pagsanjan Stone Arch in Laguna. Their main dish includes Binalot rice meals.
