Great place when on a budget. Food ranges from 150-200 with a generous serving. Try their bulalo; our guide told us it's their specialty.

The bangus sisig was really tasty and the fried tokwa came with a side of cucumber salad, sliced tomatoes and onions. It was a great meal although I thought the fried tokwa was a bit pricey. I wonder if tokwa is not common in Tacloban.

The restaurant is pretty basic though but clean and the food servers were attentive. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Tacloban. Meat eaters should try the bulalo. I heard that they're famous for it.

I was able to fly to Leyte on a recent work trip. Many thanks to my colleague, a resident of Tacloban, who recommended we eat here. Me and my teammates ended up having our first and last dinner here!

Calle Zaragosa looks like a quiet and quaint place. It has both outdoor and indoor seating, each with its own entrance. It's on one of the smaller roads, so you might just miss it, so keep an eye out for it as you're driving by the area.

On both occasions that we were here, we opted to stay inside where it was air-conditioned. Seats inside are quite spacious, and the designs on the wall are unique as they exhibit local photographs taken by a photographer whom I think is the owner.

Orders you should get here (based on our experience) are the following:
1⃣Cheese Sticks
2⃣Bulalo (apparently a restaurant favorite!)
3⃣Pork Sisig (though not having the same consistency/texture as manila sisig, the taste is amazing!)
We tried out some other dishes like the Sweet and Spicy wings, which I liked but the others were only so-so of. We had the calamares too but the breading wasn't so good, it was too soft for our taste. I liked their mango float as well but the others didn't seem to like it as much as I did. Their calamansi juice was also not so calamansi-like, it felt like they should have used more calamansi to give the drink flavor.

All main order dishes here come with a plate of rice.

In terms of hospitality and service, servers are quite patient. Food and drinks are served quickly, and the place is quite clean. Prices are quite affordable too!

I'd love to come back if ever I'm back in Tacloban, but first let me try some other restaurants so I can get a taste of more local flavors. 128513128513

P.S. Apologies for the lack of photos. We were just soooo hungry from all the work that we were doing, that we partook of the food without even thinking about taking photos.

P.P.S. Have a go at their menu, which contains 20 incredibly funny but corny jokes (as of writing) that will leave you laughing while you wait for your order to arrive.
