  • Local Ramen Restaurant: Izumi Ramen House
    Posted in: Where and What to Eat

    We have plenty of Japanese restaurants in the city, but none really specialises in making authentic Japanese Ramen. Well, there’s one in the weekend market in DC Cruz that volunteers from OISCA, an International organisation, makes. But, they only cook ramen every weekend. Now that the Izumi ramen restaurant is open, Bacolodnons can enjoy ramen Monday to […]

    Roli’s Cafe: The Taste of Classic Bacolod
    Posted in: Where and What to Eat

    Roli’s Cafe – I think it was more of Roli’s Diner back then. I can’t remember eating at the place when I was younger, but my parents do, and they say that it was one of the most popular places to eat. I asked my mom (who also loves to eat and cook) what Roli’s Cafe dishes were […]

    Bacolodnons love anything grilled! Grilled baby back ribs smothered in barbecue sauce, grilled fish, grilled chicken, grilled pork – you name it and a Bacolodnon will eat it! People usually go to different places to grill different kinds of meat.

  • Kabbara Cafe: MORE Bacolod Lebanese Food
    Posted in: Where and What to Eat

    My husband worked in Saudi Arabia for about a year. When he came home, he had already developed the skill for speaking Arabic (though not fluently) as well as the taste for Middle Eastern food. It was inevitable for him to miss both. Although it has been hard for him to find someone to speak Arabic with, […]

    Posted in: Where and What to Eat

    Mekong is a river in South East Asia that runs from the Tibetan Plateau through China’s Yunnan province, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Although it passes through many regions, people commonly associate it with Vietnam. In Bacolod City, we now have our own version of Mekong. It’s not really a body of water, but a street food stand […]

  • Merkado Cafe: Fresh, Organic and All Natural
    Posted in: Where and What to Eat

    Is it just me or has Bacolod had a lot of organic restaurant openings over the past year? It’s probably just me because I’m at an age (I’m 29) where you come to your senses and realize that your indestructibility, more commonly known as youth, is slowly leaving your body year after year. Whatever the case, […]

    Despite Bacolod being a fairly small city, you’ll be surprised at how diverse the food choices here are. One good example of a cafe that’s offering diversity is Kabbara Cafe. It’s definitely a cafe that’s on my radar and it should be in yours too. The Kabbara Cafe is over at the newly opened The Billboards: BS Aquino […]
