Admit it or not, there was a point when you turned green with envy because of us featuring sumptuous dishes from the restaurants we’ve visited. Pardon us, but we’re bringing back the yummiest food destinations in Batangas!
Ready for a throwback of the restaurants we’ve featured here before? Drool!
Some of the Yummiest Food Destinations in Batangas
Let’s start off with Asian Flavours at LIMA Park Hotel in Malvar. We’ve been invited for two bloggers lunch there in 2010 and 2011 and those two feasts were both unforgettable. Since then, we’ve always thought of this place as one of the yummiest food destinations in Batangas.
Asian Flavours is where you can feast on Filipino and other Asian cuisines all cooked under the helm of Chef Paul Poblador. Although catering mostly to expats working and staying in LIMA, Asian Flavours aims to satisfy the palate of anyone who would want to have good food on their plate. It’s also nice to know that most of the ingredients they use are grown, bred, or bought in the province.
Must-try: Ensalada S.G.B. (named after the owner of LIMA, Saturnino G. Belen)
Ala Fiesta Restaurant
We featured this Filipino restaurant in September 2010. If you’ve been living alone for quite some time and you started missing your mom or your lola’s cooking, you should dine at Ala Fiesta where everything is close to being home-cooked dishes.
Ala Fiesta is one of the many food destinations in Batangas which pay homage to lola’s cooking. The restaurant is also very accessible to commuters (it’s near SM City Lipa where the Grand Terminal is) so try to visit soon.
Must-try: kare-kare and kaldereta
When was the last time you ate sushi or sashimi? Or tempura? It was one hard to forget dining experience we had in November 2012 at Minori-Tei, the now one-year-old Japanese restaurant inside First Philippine Industrial Park in Sto. Tomas.
If you’re a lover of Japanese cuisine, then Minori-Tei is the place to be at! They have a wide-range of authentic Japanese dishes from their world-class kitchen master, Chef Toshiya Honda. Dishes in their menu are all reasonably priced considering how authentic their menu is.
Must-try: their variety of sushi rolls and the tofu salad
Florenel Cafe and Restaurant
Florenel Cafe Restaurant is a lovely food place where dishes are made to make every tummy happy. It’s clean and has a nice downtown cafe vibe in it where you can feel at home still. Florenel boasts of a well-rounded menu where you can enjoy Filipino dishes like crispy pata and bagnet, some pastas, baby back ribs, and grilled salmon to name a few.
The best thing about Florenel is that they have an impressive menu where there are set meals for families and barkadas of various numbers. Plus price very affordable!
Must-try: pancit lang-lang and crispy pata
