La Terraza Restaurant

A tarpaulin with a photo of a bowl of halo-halo. Mmmm...tempting. After an hour of going up and down and around Kawa-Kawa Hill on a warm day? I gave in to temptation. Advertising works.

La Terraza Restaurant is just a few meters before the entrance of Kawa-Kawa Hill. Even before I had settled on a chair, "One halo-halo na may lambanog (Php 65), please". And the mistake of taking a look at the menu. A quick scan of the menu resulted in an order of sisig pansit guisado (Php 100). A case of having eyes bigger than the stomach.

Halo-halo na may Lambanog (left) and Sisig Pansit Guisado (right)

The halo-halo had red beans, nata de coco, mango, buko, melon, ube, a scoop of ice cream, a choco wafer stick, and a cup of lambanog (coconut wine). I found out, while talking to one of the staff, that this has been featured in a Philippine TV show. It did have a different taste because of the lambanog, but it didn't make me a fan. Maybe because I was never a fan of wine?

The sisig pancit guisado comes in two sizes. The larger one costs Php 200. The one I got was for Php 100 and it looked like it could feed up to four persons. Good price for its serving size. The reason for ordering this? Sisig. I love sisig. But this one was a bit of a disappointment... it was too salty.

It's either not my day or not the cook's day.

  1. Lambanog - I shudder at the thought of infusing it with halo halo. Sorry, but I've never been a fan of that drink. Great pictures, though. And I admire your honesty in your blog posts. xx

    1. I guess lambanog is not my cup of tea or halo-halo or something :-) Try daw himo halo-halo and add a cup of lambanog.
