I did not expect to come to this place, during my visit in Legazpi, but I saw the sign while driving down the street and decided to check it out. Glad I did!

It's very near our hotel in Legazpi so we just walked going there. Food's really cheap and the service is quite fast. What I loved the most is the place itself. It's just like a house with a garden.

We saw their signage on our way to Ligñon Hill and made it a point to drop by for dinner. We opted to walk our way up and down the hill so you can just imagine how famished we were.

We passed by its branch atfter TAGKAWAYAN QUEZON, the 2 roads separately directing NAGA and DAET and its just after it at the left. We ordered HALO HALO and some settled for noodles. very cheap and yet yummy. It has souvenir stall nearby with the Placard- Bicol's best that has all the native dishes across the Bicol region.

if youre on a tight budget, good food is served here. the service can be quite a wait because it has to be cooked and served hot.

Food is very dry and salty and serving is not consistent. I ate a chicken sandwich which had nothing but a thin layer of spread and tiny bits of chicken that was not even noticeable.

The pares for me seems a bit bland although the meat is tender. There are many items in the menu from main dishes to snack items.
