Bacolod City has some of the best places to eat condensed into a relatively small area. There’s one perfect for every budget and oftentimes you need not wander far from the city center. We’ve roamed around Bacolod City to come up with our recommendations:
I don’t usually recommend fast food but if one survived World War II, it had got to be good! According to their front signage, they’ve been in existence since 1938 and they serve “Original La Paz Batchoy,” so we gave it a try—and we were not disappointed! Good food and very, very affordable.
By the looks of things we could say that seafood is Imay’s specialty, but I really love their chicken inasal! Their version matched with their “killer” vinegar concoction will give its Manila counterpart a run for their money.
Bistro Negrense looks more expensive than it actually is, and it serves good food with bigger than the usual servings.
Still have room for desserts? Here we go:
We found two distinct branches of Bob’s in Bacolod City: the first one is in SM City Bacolod which serves dinner, and another one named Café Bob’s which serves coffee and gelato with frozen yogurt. But regardless of the branch, Bob’s is popular for its desserts! The first branch we tried was at SM City Bacolod where we finished off our cake slices faster than we call pull out our cameras (the first photo in this post), and the second time around at Café Bob’s was where I got a one-of-a-kind frappe.
Dessert paradise! They offer a good selection of pastries and also coffee. When in Bacolod better leave room for their highly recommended desserts.
There were still quite some restaurants our friends recommended but due to our limited time, we were unable to try them all. Amongst those we tried, the ones on this list stood above the rest. And it sure made me hungry just writing this post! 😀
