Who doesn’t love traveling? Everyone does! Of course, while you enjoy the breathtaking views in every places you visit, you also get to experience the food they offer. In case you missed it, we went to Bataan for the 77th Araw ng Kagitingan last April 7-9.
And because we want to maximize our time there, we also did a mini food crawl in Bataan. I’ll be showing here the list of the restaurants that we went to.
1. JOYOUS TANGWAY RESTAURANT
Our first stop was this Filipino restaurant that opened in February, 2012. This is one of the finest restaurants here in Bataan. One of the best-seller dish here is their Sinigang na Manok sa Ayo, which was one of my fave too!
Instead of using tamarind broth or powder, they use the leaves from Ayo (Tetrastigma Harmandi), a woody vine growing to a length of 10 meters.

2. SYBILLA’S RESTAURANT
This was probably one of my favorite restaurants in Bataan. Why? Because they almost offer everything. From soup to grilled cheese to sizzling dishes to salad, and even desserts.

3. MARRES KITCHEN
What can you observe from the place first was it’s just like a carinderia. So we didn’t expect much from them. But as soon as they serve our food, we were shocked by the big servings of the food and the taste. All the food were great! THIS IS A MUST TRY! They serve Filipino food with Kapampangan accent.
