Had late dinner at Bahay Ligaya. Ordered the Ligaya's Lumpia (P195.00), Poque Poque (P220.00), Crispy Pata (P725.00), Binongey (P220.00) and Melon Shake (P100.00). The skin of the Crispy Pata was a bit tough but the rest of the dishes were tasty and good for sharing. Music wasn't that bad but the prices are somewhat exorbitant. Place was huge filled with antique stuff and salable items like used bags, chairs and "Royale" items. Owner was hands on and staffs were pleasant but not that attentive. Nevertheless, the catchy sounding resto (even orders) are worth repeating when you feel like splurging on Filipino dishes.

It was my first time to dine here even though it's just near my house. It looks like an old resto.

When you go inside, you will see a lot of Pinoy-themed artworks, santos (is that how you call those? 128517), some products they sell like gluta products (lol) watches, and accessories. The interiors look old, like an old Filipino house. Not that well-lit. Lots of diners were seniors who watches golf. 128513 Reminded me of an old house we visited in La Union when I was younger.

We ordered the ff:
Kinilaw (beef)
Papaitan
Pancit bihon
Sinampalukang manok
Kuhol
Laing
Grilled pusit

I only ate a bit of kuhol, pancit, and kinilaw na beef. I like their pancit bihon, it was tasty! 128076 It was my first time to taste beef kinilaw. I only knew of fish kinilaw so I was surprised of this dish. It tastes like "sour papaitan". Hehe. Kuhol tastes good too, no lansa at all. They provide sticks (not small, easy to break toothpicks) so you can pick it up. Servings are good for 3-4 persons. We were 10, including my cousins but our bill was only P2,400! 128076

I'm giving 3 stars for now since I only tried a bit of three dishes. I was too sleepy to eat properly. 128584128553

This is currently one of my Favorite restaurants in Katipunan. Food serving is ample for sharing. The dishes are flavorful and they also have a great selection of liquor and spirits for occasional gatherings. The facade is contemporary Filipino design all the way up to the interior. The servers are well informed about the dishes and courteous. I will definitely come back 128077

Bahay Ligaya, true to it's name, gives me soo much joy. Hehe it's the perfect place to take balikbayans to and go to for Filipino comfort food cravings. It is one of my favorite Filipino restaurants. I was even here twice last week, Monday and Sunday. For both days, I ordered the grilled liempo, calamari and pakbet. 128523 Then for Sunday, since dinner was with my dad's side, we had more viands that included crispy pata, sinigang na pangaceous, sinigang na hipon, kalabasa and sitaw sa gata, to name a few of the dishes that stood out for me.

For dessert, my dad got 2 orders of ginataan. I'm not a fan of that so I got myself buco pandan. It was good just a bit pricey at 95. The food in general is priced just right tho, sulit lahat!

Definitely a place worth coming back to over and over again. And just a friendly reminder, do not leave your belongings unattended because the security isn't so good. Huhu

My parent's and i decided to hang out here before picking up my sister at the bus station.

We only had some "snacks" since we weren't going to be there for long.

We got their liempo and puto't dinuguan.

Their liempo was really good. There was more meat than fat. The way they grilled the liempo was just right, it was juicy, tender and the slices were really thick. Perfect siya pang pulutan actually.

One of my favorite pinoy foods is dinuguan, and their dinuguan pretty much met my standards. The sauce wasn't watery like some dinuguan i've tasted. While the puto i think was store bought, it was too sticky, i would prefer if the puto was moist and hot.

Service here is great and the owner who's name is Joy- which is where the name of the resto comes from- is very hands on.

When i saw some string in my glass i pointed it out to the waitress and she was quick to apologize. When she got me a new glass she apologized again for it.

My parents brought some wine and they didn't charge us for corkage since ms. Joy pretty much knows my parents already. They have their own wine selection. Corkage here is php400, pretty pricey but hey, it's a business.

*btw they only serve water upon request

This is probably my 3rd time here. Sooooo yeah, medyo kabisado ko na yung menu128517

Anyway my sister and i tagged along with my parents to meet my tito and tita. We really wanted something cold.

So my sister ordered her fave, their sago't gulaman while I got their halo-halo.

The sago't gulaman was really good, not too sweet.

I was kind of expecting ice cream with the halo halo since it was 105 pero wala so it's ok. It tasted good though, aside from the usual gulaman and macapuno they had this orange looking piece which turned out to be a water chestnut, it tasted like Christmas. Lol.

Honestly the food here is really good and the interiors remind me of my lolo's home. Plus the service is really good128077

We had our dinner here. Ordered sinuglaw, 3 cups of rice and sisig with egg. I was so surprised of the price, we only paid 600 pesos for our dinner plus the serving is big enough for our big appetite! I just love filipino foods!

When I made this review, I already visited the resto twice. What can I say?

The name of this quaint, rustic place is very suggestive. Bahay Ligaya anyone?

It's named that way because it's an antique house and the owner's name is Joy (Ligaya in Tagalog).

The ambience is nice. Since this place also serves as an antique store, most of the decorations, wall paintings, tables, chairs, cabinets, etc. are memorabilia and antique pieces from the past. Some were from the Spanish era I think. This place is very good for dates and business meetings. You'll know why when you come to this place.

The food is Filipino cuisine. No fusion or whatsoever. Just your typical traditional home cooked, slow cooked Filipino fare. We ordered Inihaw na Liempo, Sinigang na Salmon Belly sa Miso, Chicharon Bulaklak and Poque Poque.

What stood out for me was their Inihaw na Liempo and Sinigang na Salmon Belly sa Miso. The meat was very succulent and tender. The taste was unpretentious. It was not sweet and salty either. You can really tell the meat was marinated well and grilled perfectly. Their sinigang was excellent. It even passed my Japanese friend's taste profile since he doesn't like sour food. The soup's sourness was just right, you can feel the richness of the miso. The combination of the soup and milkiness of the salmon belly was perfect!

I gave them 5 stars because of the ice cold beer they serve and the service. I love my beer freezingly cold which means no glass of ice served which is a no no for beer lovers. And the service was great. Where can you get a nice service from pretty ladies wearing Filipiniana top and a short mini skirt. 128522 They always smile, says "thank you and you're welcome" (which is very rare in Filipino restaurants) and very knowledgeable on what food they serve which is a BIG plus for me. When we asked one lady what is Poque-Poque, she explained it in great detail. I heard that they were trained by Joy (owner) who was a flight attendant before, if I am not mistaken.

I apologize for the long review, but for an establishment like this, it really deserves it.

Parking is ok. They have an indoor and an outdoor area. Food is meant for sharing and price is very reasonable. They also serve wine and sells the ingredients they use in their dishes.
