Once you try this place, you will feel at home! It is set in a residential space with lots of greeneries and al fresco dining experience.. Food is great as our very own comfort food is at the menu plus its all reinvented... Try their all-time favorite "bulalo" and "sizzling bangus sisig" and I bet its worth the price and... More

This is probably one of the oldest restaurants I know. But the good thing is that it never disappoints. FOOD: I love the free soup that they give. My favorite meal would be their sweet and spicy shrimps. I haven't tried a lot from them but I know many of my friends love their bulalo. PLACE/LOCATION: The place is romantic... More

If you have to catch an early morning flight, and you just have to have something like a home-cooked breakfast before you step on the plane -- but your hotel doesn't serve breakfast at 3 in the morning, be thankful that you can drop by at Calle Z on the way to the airport. It opens at 11 in the... More

If you are looking for affordable home-cooked meals, then this is the best place to go in Tacloban. It was so good that we ate here everyday during our four day stay in Tacloban! Bulalo and Crispy. Tenga stand out among the many dishes in their menu.

Calle Z was not in my radar until I met my friend who is living in Tacloban. The bulalo, the sizzling tenga and other food offerings were delicious. We dined al fresco at their garden and it was a great ambiance, especially with the view of the house where Calle Z is located. It is also within the city center.... More

Their famous crispy tenga is not crispy at all, its tough and too hard to chew on. bulalonwill turn out fine after knock ng down a few bottles of beer. another thing is that its kinda akward to bring girls specially pretty ones when you noticed drunk guys almost stalking at her all the time... pulutan siguro nila hehe

Looking for Bulalo? Try Calle Z with their bulalo. During my late night dinner, I was looking for some bulalo to eat. The hotel staff recommended Calle Z. I went off to this resto. It's quiet environment.
