Food crawl: Must try restaurants in Bataan

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.

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.

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.

  1. Bataan is my dad’s hometown and we go there practically every year but I haven’t been to any of these places. Thanks for sharing and I’ll be sure to include them in the fam’s itinerary the next time we go there.

  2. Nice to see this list. I never really got to explore Bataan as we only stayed inside Las Casas when my family went there. I love the STREGATO GELATERIA the most because it looks colorful and cozy.
