i,m from the city but haven't gone back for a long time. don't miss the batchoy in la paz or the various delicacies like pancit molo, kansi, kadyos (kbl), and other treats like panaderia de molo.

your local hosts can do the rest! :wavey:

try the kansi at Luis, open 24 hours. its in front of SM City. dont forget to ask for kaldo (extra soup)
if you have time, do visit allans talabahan in Oton its around 20 minutes away from the city. talaba is huge. or you might want to proceed to Miag-ao and visit the UP campus. may beach na, may bundok pa. you can also eat at Doming's in Miag-ao. talaba, pork chop and kinilaw swimming in suka and gata yum yum
peppys - open only for lunch mon-sat. do try the namtok and dry noodles.
also, theres a native restaurant in Cabugao, Sta. Barbara named Cabugao. you will pass it on your way to the city from the airport. Menu is also very good, all native food

dont forget to bring loose pants/shorts. Happy eating and malipayon nga pag abot!

food kasi is one of the few things that will distinguish one place from the other, im sure where you come from you also have old churches, but if really like old churches check out miagao church, i think its the oldest here in the PI, im sure you also have malls, and beaches, and also nightlife.... though iloilo is one of the few places ive been where the taxi drivers are all pimps hehehe. in cebu its drive by style hehehe.

kwento lang sa akin mga to.

but the food, tsktsk its what sets one place apart or different from the rest. i still crave for pochero from cebu.

heheheh.. i believe you ... :tongueout:

It use to be the night life when i was younger.. and single :P aheheheh...

But these days.. food and specialty pasalubong nalang. I like wierd food.. hehehe.. for example. I went to MOA last month, we had to eat a late lunch at this resto... it was a resto with a monkey as a logo.. or something.. Cabana... Hut... forgot. But when we ordered.. i tried they're speciality rice.. whoa.. Black colored.. hahahahah.. needless to say, i had a very surprising time at the CR the next morning :)

Napansin ko sa mga seaside towns na HINDI puntahan ng tourist , walang seafood
I've beento a daungan ng fishing boats sa mindoro couldnt find a resto w/ seafood
Sa Ormoc, we went to a resto tabi ng dagat ang specialty pata tim

Parang masarap gayahin si Ewan mcgregor and tour the philippines by motorcycle
Kainin lahat ng specialties na madaanan

Haaay!!!! daw mapuli na guid ako. Hidlaw guid ko sa Iloilo. Na-miss ko Ted's old-timer La Paz Batchoy, Tatoy's Litson Manok and the talabas. I enjoyed my stay there especially when I was a student at University of the Philippines located at Molo, Iloilo City. Wala kaming ginawa pagkatapos ng klase kundi umikot at maghanap ng masarap na makakainan. I thought about those days and my vivid memories of the past came surging in.

For sure any UPV student had experienced hanging out at Tia Mels. BTW, is your family name De Guia? My younger brother (he studied in Pisay and UP Diliman, student number is also 90-XXXXXXX) had a friend/classmate whose father is Kidlat Tahimik.

All places mentioned above are very good suggestions bro...but for me and based on past work experience (I used to work for a big beverage company doing their Marketing and Promotions based and I was based in Iloilo. We have Senior Officers from the Head Office who regularly travels for the monthly sales and marketing presentations).

According to them; you have not gone to Iloilo if you have not tried or been to one of the following;

1. Ted's Old Timer Lapaz Batchoy- several locations around the city including inside SM city
2. Tatoy's Manokan located in Villa, Iloilo
3. Breakthrough Seafood located in Calumpang, Molo
4. Biscocho Haus in Jaro for pasalubong (pastries) or dinuguan and puto
5. There's several new places but these are the originals, and if you want to stay near the City proper, Day's Hotel is in the heart of the city...so close to everything, and I have stayed there several times. There's a new Business Hotel at smallville where it's close to the nightly gigs as well as SM City, The Nes and Tat's restaurant that is owned by the daughter of Tatoy's Manokan.
6. Tibiao Bakery is also popular for pasalubong (pastries as well as Siopao)...try there CheeseSticks and Siopao
7. Peppi Thai, a thai restaurant that serves just lunch, a family-owned business
8. Sarabia Hotel is a nice place to stay as well, Al Dente is located at the hotel...an Italian restaurant
