These Southies finally managed to go on that long overdue road trip for a new thing we're doing: SOUTHIEscovery. Our first destination pick was Pagsanjan, Laguna.🚗🗺🛣 How WHOAsome it was that our fellow Southies really came through when we asked for suggestions on where to go and what to eat while we were there!🙌🏼
Our pit stop for lunch was the highly-recommended Calle Arco Restaurant. Boy! Was everyone right!🙌🏼👍🏼 The food was damn delicious and the place gave us that homey, quirky, sentimental vibe.😌😗👌🏼 Here are the dishes we ordered and what we thought about them:
💡It was all our first time to experience a resto serving their food covered in cling wrap for sanitation purposes, and we think that is just GENIUS!🙌🏼
💡They have al fresco areas and the actual dining room is well-ventilated, so we were good with just fans when we dined. Guests can also request for the airconditioner to be turned on.
💡They strictly open at 10am; we arrived a few minutes early so we had to wait in the car.
💡They also highly recommend their Pinakbet and Garlic Chicken but we were still too full from breakfast and decided to try it the next time we're in the area.
💡Other than the delicious food, it sure was a real treat to experience their antique interiors.
Suffice to say, our day started pretty well, and this only got better as we went on to our next pit stops in Pagsanjan... NEXT: breau.brew review coming SOON!
