#NCDfoodtrip: Ishiaya De Legazpi

#NCDfoodtrip Fell in love with the Nayoka Salad of Ishiaya De Legazpi (by Chef Aya Medel) in an instant. 😭❤️ Fresh and crisp “Pako” as we know it as the main ingredient, this salad with mango bits, tomato, a dressing that complements everything and anything in between will just make your heart full and crave for more. Btw, it’s only worth P125 😍 This resto is a must visit when you’re in Legazpi City. This is one of the moments when I wish restos like this is also within our reach here in Naga.
Nayoka Salad
Japanese as it may sound, Isihaya’s menu ranges from appetizers, soup, salad, sushi varities, sashimi and tempura, seafood, beef, seafood, vegetables, pork, noodles, ramen, smoothies, and even “kids simple happiness” that willl surely let your children enjoy the place.




You’ll be lucky if Chef Aya is around to prepare your meals, just like during our visit. Dios Mabalos Chef Aya for the great food and dining experience. Will definitely come back! ❤️



Chef Aya’s original branch is in Tabaco City so if you’re in the area, you can also enjoy the same goodness of the food.

Ishiaya is also known for there boneless Crispy Pata

#NCDFoodtrip: Burb Belly

#NCDfoodtrip: When was the last time you got surprised by a random restaurant without knowing what they actually offer? Stumbled upon BURP BELLY last week and this BISTEK BULALO (P295) got me wowed! 😱Probably it’s the bone marrow that is the sought after ingredient of this dish but I love that they used French Beans here too 😍 Sulit serving size (can be good for 2 to 3 people) and the taste is oh so good!
 
They also attempted to have a SIZZLING TOFU (P159) on their menu which is my personal favorite in Max’s restaurant. With these two dishes that I have initially tried, I’m hoping that the rest will be equally burp-worthy.🙂



Belly B’s by Burp Belly also serves All-Day Breakfast (starts at P129), Appetizers (P149 ⬆️), Sinigang na Bagnet (P329)Sizzlers (P159⬆️), Main Dishes (P279⬆️), Sandwiches (P185⬆️), Pasta (P149⬆️). All of which are I presumed to be good for sharing.
