#FoodieLoveAtIBP: A feast of Ilonggo flavors at Iloilo Festive Walk

10/16/2017 Randomly Candid 0 Comments

I always say that more than the old mansions, heritage churches and fun-loving people, Iloilo is home to delightful gastronomic attractions. We have the popular batchoy and pancit molo for snacks; KBL (kadios, baboy, langka), chicken inasal and talaba (oyster) for main course; and biscocho, piaya and butterscotch for dessert.

My friends from other places would always agree when I say that it's really hard to be on a diet if you live in Iloilo. With the affordable yet delicious food here, anyone will be tempted to always have a cheat day.

Before, tourists visiting Iloilo would always jump one restaurant to another just to taste all these must-eats. Now, you can already taste these local gastronomic wonders in just one #eatinirary. Thus, giving you more time to try other things and visit the must-sees in the City of Love.

At the Iloilo Festive Walk, your cravings for Ilonggo food will be surely satisfied as it houses homegrown restaurants offering the popular Ilonggo dishes.

Here are the list of restaurants at the Iloilo Festive Walk that you have to visit to complete your Ilonggo culinary experience...

1. Griller's Oyster House

Griller's Oyster House is the go-to place of those who are craving for osyters or talaba. They have the widest choices of talaba dishes. From the plain Steamed Talaba to the public's new favorite Baked Talaba, you will never go wrong with Griller's Oyster House.

Other talaba dishes on its menu include Crispy Fried Talaba, Kinilaw na Talaba and Sizzling Talaba, among others.

2. Teodorico by Ted's Oldtimer Lapaz Batchoy

Ted's Lapaz Batchoy is one of the popular destinations in Iloilo when you are looking for authentic Lapaz batchoy. But did you know that Ted's is just a nickname? His real name is Teodorico. This also became the name of a new resto which serves the never-fading taste of Ted's Lapaz batchoy.

But more than its well-known batchoy, Teodorico has other food offerings such as chicken inasal and bbq ribs, liempo and all-day breakfast meals.

3. Book Latte

Book Latte is more than just coffee. It is a conducive venue for customers who want to have meetings, study or just read books.

Yet more than the perfect coffee shop ambiance that everyone is looking for, Book Latte is being loved by the many because of their food. One of the best choices here is their authentic-tasting pancit molo  that can feed the whole barkada.

4. Farm to Table

Farm to Table is one of the brainchilds of Ilonggo celebrity chef Pauline Banusing. This restaurant aims to support the local organic farmers by serving organic food.

The menu is full of local dishes with some modern twist and that includes Iloilo's very own batchoy. Farm to Table's version is meatier with its beef toppings and has creamier broth - a new twist but still tastes authentic.

5. Bicocho Haus

Biscocho Haus is already an established name in Iloilo whenit comes to pasalubong. They have all the local delicacies of Iloilo such as biscocho, piaya, galletas, butong-butong, polvoron, pinasugbo and butterscotch.
