Me & my family always go here. It's a peaceful & awesome place. Just make sure to have an appropriate dress. They don't want short shorts, dress, short skirts and sleeveless most especially to girls. They are really strict when it comes for a dress code. In case you do not aware of the dress code, the Sisters share their long skirt so that you could wear it while you are inside the premises.

We planned on eating here for lunch but we didn't factor in the weather and timing hehe. It was pouring hard when the mass finished so we have to wait for it to stop or at least let up into a manageable drizzle before we go down to Pasilungan. We wanted to try pansit canton (mukha siyang nakakatakam) but they were still cooking the next batch. We were really hungry so we ordered pancit bihon, RICA bread, chop suey and rice. Serving size was huge. We finished the pansit and half of chopsuey and brought home the rest.
We toasted and ate RICA bread for breakfast hehe.

Holy Friday with mom Elaine P and my aunt Liza.
Finally i was able to visit this beautiful place. Pilgrimage trip 2015. Located at the top of Tanay Rizal. It was a long journey but its all worth the ride.
It was a hot sunny day when we got there. We still haven't taken lunch and i heard of the resto there named "Pasilungan" , run by the nuns. Their specialty here is the rica bread, for very affordable price, 50 pesos as i remember and good combination with pancit canton with huge serving. We got spaghetti too, lugaw and the vegetable lumpia which is super sarap! The food here are all nutritious and healthy. To beat the heat we got mango shakes.
We were seated in a cottage type and some go here for picnic and can be rent for 300 pesos.
They sell ice cream also

Situated at the top of the hill and a couple of hours away from Manila, the Pasilungan (the Ilonggo term for "shelter") is located inside Regina Rica. Our primary reason for visiting this place was for attending mass for my mom's birthday, but after trying the food they offered, we just couldn't forget it.
After a day of exploring the tranquil place of contemplation, we decided to fuel our stomachs before heading home. This place, as I have read in other reviews, has a reputation of serving vegetarian food.
The ambience of the place really makes you feel one with the nature, with the interior and exterior of the place made of bamboo and wood. And since it's at the top of a hill, you wouldn't have to worry about ventilation.
We ordered their Pancit Bihon which looked really filling. It was unbelievably tasty and you wouldn't believe it didn't have meat in it. What was unforgettable about the dish was that it didn't taste dry and yet it didn't feel oily. I could tell since I have a tendency to check the oiliness of a pansit dish by the greasy feeling it leaves on my lips. Haha.
We also tried a loaf of their Rica bread, which was crunchy on the surface but felt really soft inside. I loved that they added plenty of herbs which made the bread very filling and flavorful. We enjoyed it so much that we bought a lot of it for us to take home.
Since it was a hot day, we tried their Mais con Hielo. And by the time our order came, I realized I hadn't even taken a picture of what we ate. =___= Hence the picture of only what we had for dessert. I like my mais con hielo creamier than what they offer, but it still tasted okay.
I have no complaints about their service and the price of their food , since we got so much for what we paid for. I think our total bill (for three) amounted to less than 500 pesos. The ones who were serving us were very attentive and diligent.
I can't wait for the next time we return here and try their other dishes. :)
