First time in Legazpi, First time here in Small Talk as well. We had a tour guide which is one of the reason we went here to visit our friend/tour guide and let her hometown be known.

This resto is well known to be serving fusions of food in bicol. A little house turned into a very comfy and homey feelin with lots of pictures and decorations you see at the living room of a house.

First stop, appetizer.. Squidlets. It's calamari guys with a dip of sweet chili sauce. I loved this because well one is i like squid and two it really taste good.

We also had pizza laing, adobo sa gata, pinangat, talmuk and lastly bicol express. Will review the foods in different days or maybe later. We'll see. For now, need to get some rest. 128077128522

It was the talk of the blogosphere as a place to visit at Legazpi City thus my hungry hohums brought me at Small Talk Cafe. Cozy and quaint. Very modest fixtures, old photographs and different photos of majestic Mayon at different eras, as well as vintage photographs of the city. The famed bicolandia pinangat was said to be a must try and so I did among other fares. It was so so, I guess I've tasted better pinangat from my friends homecooked pinangat. The Tilmok is a must try! Crabmeat wrapped in taro leaves and cooked in coconut milk.... it was good paired with grilled chicken satay.

Slow service as usual. But good food nevertheless. Had bicol express pasta - which was a little spicy but the right level

I went to Albay for my thesis data gathering. I visited last November and I fell in love with their Rhum Cake ala mode. I went back this January and I ate here for 4 consecutive days just to try some in their menu. Of course, they did not disappoint me. The ambience of the place is warm and very homey. The pili pasta and the pork spareribs are also a must try! Aside from the rhum cake ala mode, visitors should also try their cheesecakes (they're simple and satisfying but not that WOW). Plus, there's also a piano, which customers can use. The owner is also accommodating. She will approach your table and give stories about Albay. I will surely visit this place again soon.

This resto has been in the city for decades already, and until now they have retained the quality and taste of their food.. I love the rustic feel of the Restos interior. It's actually a house turned resto that's why it feels homey.
The food was delish! We ordered chicken cordon bleu, blue marlin belly, pinangat, bikol express, bikol express pasta, chicken satay and pili
Pie for desert. 128522128522128522128522128522 everything we ordered was spot on! my most fave was pili pie and bikol express pasta. it showcased bikolano touch on an international food.. And it was yummmmmmy!

Located at the heart of Legaspi Albay. Be serenated with classical piano music on a romantic setting. Food is not an ordinary flare, everything with a bicolano twist. Go for their best seller Pasta Pinangat, this is their take on pesto but this time it is definitely Filipino. Price range at least 200 to 400 pesos per person.

Small talk! Big word!

LOCATION: located at Doña aurora street. Legazpi city! This humble place is very popular in legazpi city. 10 to 15 mins travel Coming from daraga albay. Just take a jeep going to legazpi and tell the driver to drop u at small talk.

PLACE: a rustic house inspired restaurant. Where pictures of old legazpi and local people can be seen its like eating in a museum. The aura is classic and simple. From the wooden floors., tables and chairs. Match with dim lights and a piano at the corner. This place have really something to say!

SERVICE: the service was quite slow but since the place is interesting try to walk around and take a look at the pictures around you. You will see how legazpi has its transformation from a very rural place to now a commercial city. People are very relax and hospitable.

Food: from the bottom of the uploaded photo is pesto pasta (bianco e verde) one of the best i ever had. The texture was perfectly cooked. The pesto taste so good. Next is the pasta mayon. Swear! This one was superb! Its very new to me. The pasta was al dente the sauce was from coconut cream with laing in a red tomato sauce with tuna. (Now I'm hungry) Next is laing it was sooo masarap coming from me which I'm not a fan of laing. Im just tasting a bit of laing before and from tasting this laing from small talk. Grabe iba to! Then last is the pasta pinangat. Imagine how good their laing was then put it on a pasta. Enough said. Heaven on earth!

PRICE: very reasonable price! Pizza is 245php good for 3-4px pasta mayon for only 105php laing for only 50php and pasta pinangat for only 110 php. See! Good food need not be expensive!

A really must try on legazpi city!

An old house turned into a cozy and quaint restaurant that serves good comfort food. Try their Bicol Express pasta , and their Laing pizza. I was expecting a higher level of spice though. Nothing mind blowing, but good place to eat when in this town to see the majestic Mayon Volcano.

Loved their buco pandan shake, the mayon hot lava too. For my main entree i ordered their chicken cordon bleu, well nothing special. Medyo matabang. Pero ok na din because of their shake and ice cream because i am a certified sweet tooth. 128512 plus very affordable too. 128556

We had the chicken cordon bleu with Bicol express on the side and their Bicolana pizza.
Prices were reasonable, servings were generous. 128077
Food was superb, servers were excellent and friendly; what i didn't like was the place, although it's homey, it was extremely warm inside (we were there around noon time)!
I was sweating non-stop. Servers were that friendly that's why i didn't have the courage to ask if they have ACs/if ACs aren't functional. 128529128586

Too bad we couldn't back out cos we were too famished and it was on our getaway itinerary.. 128534128531

Can i give a 2.5 stars? Geez.

Generally, i think food isn't the main attraction for legaspi because of its bland taste and less exciting mixes, but rather, its king is the Mayon Volcano. But talking about food, Small Talk offers good Pinangat. I loved it. Best place to showcase local food in a decent dining place. I went there during the holy week, thats why i needed to wait till easter sunder to try the place, after two failed attempts during good friday and black saturday. Service is kinda slow then since the staff were overwhelmed with the crowd after people rushed to the place as a result of a long wait the past days. A bit overrated, but worth a try :)

This place was recommended to us by Summer, the hotel staff at Hotel Venezia, and it was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! Their Pinangat Pizza is one of the things that a tourist MUST order when there. At first we were hesitant thinking that it'll be green all-over, but no.... It's Gourmet Pizza with a hint of Bicol!!! The flavor profile was perfectly balanced on top of the thin-crust they're using. And not just the pizza, all other dishes are real good... their serving size is a little over for one person, so if you're on a diet, sharing is adviced. Ü. Pricing? It's just right for its quality and quantity. A must-try when you're in Bicol!!

P.S. Sorry wasn't able to post pictures as we've eaten almost everything when we remembered to take photos. Yum!
