Relaxed vibe, cool reggae music, nice interiors. Their Bicol Express was the spiciest I've tried in all of my meals in Legazpi. We ordered sisig but it was nothing special. Loved their mango shake.

Jammin'. Pinoy-style.

That's Bob Marlin's tagline. I was instantly sold! A reggae themed restaurant that originated in Naga, this is already their second branch that opened last 2016 (wow parang ang tagal na)... I think the best way to describe it is Bicol's verion of Gerry's Grill or Dencio's. Can I say, right off the bat, that we all got a kick out of the reggae Christmas songs?🤣🤣🤣 There is nothing like Jingle Bells sang rasta-style!128514

They were put on the map because of their Crispy Pata-- a "Soooo Pinoy" awardee, this made it to various top ten lists for the Pinoy fave. We had to try it!

Making reservations for 25 pax (add one guest for that night; 26 if you count my 2y/o nephew) is not easy, especially when we find ourselves in the province. You will see waiters pushed to the brink because of our large rowdy group. One more difficulty I always encounter is taking pics of the food. The food is literally gone in a blink of an eye, so you have to be fast, fast, fast... No time to make things pretty. My experience here was pretty much the same thing.

For starters, we tried the beef and corn sizzler that was overflowing with gravy-- really good! We got to try the two kinds of sisig that they offer-- Ziggy's Sisig Crispy (with mayo) and Ziggy's Sisig original (with egg). I like crispy sisig, but it was great that they appeal to personal preference.

Everyone enjoyed the salmon belly sinigang-- sarap ng pagka-asim! We had the Sinugbab, which is the pork sinugba with suka-- yum! The Habagat hito, their fried hito, was okay. What was sad was that we only had like 2 orders of the crispy pata because they ran out of stock. Sobrang bitin!128557128557128557 It was good pero di ko nanamnam ang sarap.

Obviously, we had to try Bicol specialties. I think they have the spiciest Bicol express I have tried for the whole trip. Such a great beer match! I didn't try the laing and pinangat-- not into those dishes. Btw, you can ask them not to make the laing too spicy.

It's a great inuman place, very casual and informal. You will definitely smell like your food after. But, they offer good food and cold beer and that's a great way to end a beach-bumming kind of day...128515
