La Paz Batchoy with Puto Manapla for Breakfast!

Due to numerous requests, I will present first on our Iloilo food trip during our stay in the city. These were compilation of different places that we visited during our vacation. As I mentioned, Iloilo has rich of food resources and cuisines were considered as one of the best in the Philippines. We enjoyed staying in this province because of the glorious amount of food that we eat. Here are some the food tripping that we had.

1st Food Trip: Ted's Oldtimer La Paz Batchoy

I, myself was a big fan of Batchoy. The moment we arrived in Iloilo, I immediately craved to a bowl of hot soup filled with noodles and meat bits. And the best way to try this meal is of course in Iloilo. It was originated in La Paz district in Iloilo. Along our way to the city proper, we stopped at Ted's and it was the start of our food trip here in Iloilo. There were also branches of Ted's in Metro Manila but prices really differ since we were in the home location. Try that and you will see the difference. :)

Happy eating!

 2nd Food Trip: JD Bakeshop and Restaurant

I must be admit, this shop sells delicious food at a very, very, very low price! You could find a complete chicken meal (rice+chicken+drinks) at PHP49. Good thing that taste was not compromise. We enjoyed eating here and we even do some take home for our dinner at the hotel. There were also a servings of pastries since it was a bakeshop but still a very low price. I told them that the best answer to our budget is JD! :) 

There were several branches in Iloilo, we tried three: one in Mandurriao, La Paz and finally at Iloilo Airport. Take note, food price at the airport were generally high but in JD Airport branch remained the same. :)

3rd Food Trip: Deco's

We went to La Paz district and what comes to my mind about this district was again La Paz Batchoy. We went to the market place and we saw the first branch of Deco's which was a simple stall infront of the market. History says that this was the place where Batchoy was created and flourished. As the way we see it, we eat the authentic La Paz Batchoy and be part of the history! :)

There were several branches in Iloilo and also in Metro Manila. I also saw one branch in Baguio City at SM. Again, price was different compared to Iloilo.

4th Food Trip: Breakthrough

It is one of the most visited food trip in Iloilo. This place was along the beach area and there were many people flocked to this place not only to eat but also to enjoy the great view. The moment we arrived here, there were several parked vehicles along the way and our driver couldn't find a space for parking and we roamed around for 20 minutes until finally we found a spot. There were many people already dining and some were lining up ordering food. 

It is a native style restaurant that served seafood products. They also served chicken inasal and lechon. We ordered that and we were happily eating dinner with a great view on our background. By the way, Guimaras Island was just a closer away to reach it. Food was delicious but a bit pricey compared on some of our food trips in Iloilo.

Actually, these are some of the places that we went during our stay in Iloilo. We went on other places such as in SM City Iloilo but I was not able to take photos. But it was a worthy experience. Iloilo is definitely a food haven. :)
