Going to Bacolod, I had to know what’s there to do. Most people said, eat, eat, and eat. I’m not a foodie and I find the thought boring. But perspectives changed while I was there. So, here’s a list of things to Eat while you’re in Bacolod. Enjoy!
CANSI has a sour taste like that of sinigang but looks like bulalo. The sour taste is brought by the Batuan seeds.
The world class beef soup can be experienced here at Sharyn’s Cansi House.
2. ERON’S CANSI
You should also try Cansi from Eron’s Cansi House. I personally prefer their Cansi. It has more flavor, more color and better beef. Don’t limit the rice. Ughh. I’m craving as I write.
3. SEASIDE FLOATING RESTO AT BALARING
Eat your heart out here at Brgy. Balaring Seaside Floating Restaurant. I like their mixed seafood very much. The savoury sauce comes great with it. The freshness of every dish is commendable.
4. MELKENS SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
Few walks ahead, there’s Melkens seafood Restaurant. While I like the mixed seafood at seaside floating restaurant, I love everything here at Melkens- Talaba, Fried Squid, Sizzling Blue Marlin, Tinolang isda and Buttered shrimp. The shrimp was my favourite in this resto.
5. CAFE 1925
Going on Café hopping is also a highlight here in Bacolod. In this particular Café we tried their pancit molo, homemade squidball, salad in ceazar salad dressing and fish fillet with chips (seems like fries). You’d appreciate the Café’s ambience with their table mats, lighting and wall frames featuring local paintings.
It is my first time to try Laswa. It’s like mixed veggies boiled as is with no other flavours or seasonings, perhaps only salt, making it very nutritious. You could really taste the veggies and feel the gooey texture brought by the okra and saluyot.
7. TUNA SANDWICH @ DUYAN CAFÉ
I had the time to appreciate Silay alone and XY recommended me to visit Duyan Café. There’s no duyan (hammock) here but true, it offers a nice view.
I love the Taro Chips with the tuna melt, flavourful in every bite.
8. Cold Chocolate drink @ The Rooster Cafe
After visiting Duyan Café, might as well stop by at The Rooster Café.
Maybe because they have lots of roosters hmm 🤔
Check out this mini clip hear how peaceful it is here.
I only ordered one cold chocolate drink but I think the Café is worth coming back. Cute chairs. Cute furniture. Cute spots to chill. But the best thing was how the staff treated a lone traveller well. Nothing special, they just smiled a lot. 🙂
9. FELICIA’S PASTRY SHOP
Here, their specialty is the ensaymada. I don’t have a photo but yess it is really goooood. We had ensaymada with tablea dip. Ohh could you imagine the chocolate tablea poured on the soft ensaymada? 🤤🤤 I’m drooling. Anyway, here are some other sweets we ate.
10. CALEA CAKES
All these cakes are oh so good. Here why don’t you scroll slowly and taste each one just with your eyes. Take note, sansrival here at Calea is so good I felt it melt in my mouth. 😭
11. BACOLOD INASAL
I can’t leave bacolod without tasting their Inasal. But personally, Mang Inasal has become my basis for a good Inasal. Compared to Mang Inasal, Bacolod Inasal is still good. Less sweet less juicy but is good 👌
12. EL IDEAL
Remembering El Ideal, I never thought I could even enter the shop. It stands just around the corner of Silay junction but nothing enticed me to get inside.
It was the last shop I dined in before I left bacolod and I thought “buti na lang they invited me here.”
13. LOCAL DISHES
I gotta end this appreciating the local food, homemade dishes or simply take outs I ate with BACOLOD TOWER Controllers. These were the best ones, aside from being free and still delicious, 🥴🤭 these were nakakatalino nakakagaling (kahit di naman magaling) meals. Yeah! Because they taught me Control Techniques while eating.
All these food I mentioned from 1-13 are just but ideas if not for BACOLOD APPROACH Control STUDY.
To end, thank you RPVB APP TOWER CONTROLLERS/PERSONNEL/CLASSMATE AND GF for the opportunity, the friendship, the learnings, and above all the experience. ❤️
