Very interesting menu in this restaurant. I actually had quite a hard time choosing but finally settled on Spicy Pomodoro pasta.

I can handle the spice just fine but this time I asked to tone it down because recently I recovered from food poisoning (hehe, professional Zomato illness, you gotta risk it for the biscuit).

The serving size was generous. However I don’t think it was for sharing because there was not much seafood. I didn’t finish it and the pomodoro thing tasted a little bit like suka (hard not to think of that comparison when you had to puke a few days before). That said, it was a good pasta, and still quite spicy.

The cinnamon horchata latte I had was barely a horchata. It was more like a cinnamon coffee rather a rice drink. Hindi ako magrerekomenda nito.

Would be curious to check out other items on the menu.

What a wonderful place this is. It was my first restaurant in Legazpi and I think it’s the best one so far.

This is where I got to try Beef Bicol Express. It was very spicy but still full of flavours. Coconuty and sweet (kasi pinya), spicy and savoury. Truly a unique experience.

The pakwan shake was not just a shake. They added some ingredient that it became creamy. Very unique texture for a pakwan shake, so I was impressed.

The staff was attentive from the very beginning. They treated us like some important guests. I’ve never had such service before here in the Philippines.

The ambiance... it’s also unique. The place was styled as a hacienda and looked like a trip into past.

Really recommend this place. Can’t vouch for all the food but do try Bicol Express here.

Absolutely wonderful red iced tea. Very mild soothing flavour. I don’t drink soda but if it’s a soda, I’m speechless.

I’ve had Unagi-Style Bangus Maki Bento and it was amazing. I found teriyaki bangus a witty idea. The sushi were good for such an average Kiko as me but I wish they were all different instead of the same flavour. This way the meal would have a better personality.

If you don’t have high expectations, this place is for you (in a good sense; it can surprise).

Their newest matcha yoghurt wasn’t to my liking. It was rather bland. Tsujiri is just a floor (or two) above them, so maybe they could buy some quality matcha from them 🙃 I also added a mochi topping but it was super sweet, which is weird (no filling). Definitely a skippable dessert.

The gluttony run continues in La Fiesta Filipino Cuisine. 127856🦐127817128022 128029(whoops, typo, no bees)

I can wholeheartedly recommend Lechon de Leche. I normally eat a bit of everything and don't look back, but I did have to go back to the litson station kasi masarap naman eh! I got lucky and snitched a tiny ear. Crunchy *yum-yum*

Dinuguan is another meal that I can recommend. Not oversalted, just perfect.

The balut was delicious but my ibon didn't even have hair (mukhang sorbang bata siya).

Their dessert game could've been represented better. Walang bibingka o puto bumbong pero baka paskong ulam lang ito.

Please forgive me my Filipino kapamilya, nilagyan ko ang mga kendi sa aking halo-halo. 128586
I just wanted to try how it tastes and my advice is not to be a gaya-gaya (tastes bad 🤢).

Filipino food is 10084️ Would love to go back when the chance comes.

Starbucks Coffee

This is usually my go to branch, although I've probably been to all of Starbuckses in BGC. It's always super busy and you're really lucky if you can get yourself a couch.

I don't visit Starbucks as much as I used to but I still like this franchise, and not for coffee! 128516
When I saw on Looloo that there's a new pistachio cake, I the urge to try it immediately. Next day you can find me ordering one.

The cake was really delicious. Not sweet at all, minimum of chocolate (the thin base was chocolatey dough), great creamy pistachio flavour. One downside: so expensive (mga P170 para sa isang piraso)!

In fact, I wanted to try this cake so much that I forgot to take a picture and took a bite from it before doing so 🤫127856

My second visit to this place but I'm reviewing it for the first time.

This place is extremely expensive and it is out of my league but they allure me with their interesting ingredients and meals. I wouldn't say I go here to enjoy food. I go here to discover new things that exist in the world of food 128556

On my first visit 3 months ago I discovered kombucha. Then I started brewing it at home. Now I came here again to compare which one is better, and honestly, although I messed up a lot of batches of my kombucha, I like it more than here. I noticed they add some syrup to it, to make it sweeter, but it was still massim na maasim! I can drink it but I prefer it to be less sour.

They have interesting bowls of food. I've tried the poke bowl and the umami bowl. Both are good but they do put a huge dent in your pocket.

One thing that I strongly disliked during this visit is that the waiter asked us if we want coconut water or sparkling water. We thought it was a freebie because he only mentioned these two drinks. I said, yeah, why not, but just before he popped a bottle of coconut water we discovered it costs around P200. Sandali lang, kuya! Hindi namin kailangan ang "kabutihan" iyan.

My first time here. I wanted a drink and went for the Thai Milk Tea thing. Apparently, it’s a limited special drink/slushie.

My drink was pretty much tasteless and felt like super sweet ice with pearls. No traces of tea whatsoever.

I guess I should’ve ordered their regular ice creams because they looked amazing.

The place also tells me to get lost 128516

Classic Healthy Plate is a solid choice. I still can’t believe how much you get for only P280. Of course it’s not cheap but you get a drink, fruits, salad and chicken at saka mga sauce. I would rate it lower if it was more expensive since the food isn’t the best. Decent for the price.
