GEEWAN: Home of Bicolano Dishes

So this summer, my family went for a vacation in Bicol. A 15-hour drive form San Jose, Nueva Ecija to Pili, Camarines Sur. It's quite a drive, huh? 

Honestly, I didn't enjoy the ride. It was bumpy and bone-shaking, really uncomfortable ride. Or maybe it was just our driver who was driving us crazy? I din't know. Screw him if that's the case. Haha! Unlike our last year's trip to Ilocos, roads were smooth and very comfortable to drive. But here, it was totally messed up.  Lot of roads and highways were being built. Oops! I forgot. Eleksyon nga pala ngayon

Well, all of these went away after I tried wake-boarding. Of course, it's the best thing here in Camarines Sur. You surely didn't want to miss this! 

And for the record, I finished 1 and a half laps. Not bad for a first timer, I guess.

Finally, we found you. Don't you dare disappoint us especially me, I got high expectations from you! At higit sa lahat, GUTOM AKO, masama ako ma-disappoint pag gutom. 

Pasok na pasok sa budget ha.

As you can see, it's not a sit-down type of restaurant. There's no waiter getting orders here. You should line up and confuse yourself on what to eat. It's a pay-as-you-order resto so wala kang takas loko ka! This one's really nice coz you get to see what you're ordering. Unlike in the pictures, they're just fooling us on what it really looked like. 

And as you all (I suppose) knew, this one was my favorite part - DESSERTS!!!

 This one's called PINANGAT, the specialty of the house. It's more popularly known as LAING here in Luzon. A blend of meat, taro leaves, coconut milk, and chili. I hate spicy food but this one is an exemption. 

Pork BBQ. Just an ordinary one, nothing special. However, I like the atsara on side.

Nilagang Baka. One of the best soup I've had. The soup was oh-so good, and the beef was so tender. I easily ate this in rush, 5 minutes. (Remember, gutom ako.)

Round 2 for pinangat! I gave justice to this Bicolano dish. I really love Bicol now!

And to indulge my Bicolano food trip experience, a Sans Rival from Baker's Plaza sold here in Geewan. No comment. I just wanted to eat this right away. Amen!!!

RATING: 9.25 of 10

Happy eating!
