Last January 29, 2011, we went on a quick trip to Angono, Rizal. We checked out Balaw Balaw Specialty Restaurant, one of the most well-known specialty restaurants in the province. The town of Angono is known as the Art Capital of the Philippines. When you visit this town, you shouldn't miss dining at Balaw Balaw. They offer not just good food, but an experience worth remembering.
Balaw-Balaw Restaurant is famous, maybe because of its bizarre array of exotic dishes like ginataang uok, soup no. 5, rose petal tempura, nilasing na palaka, kamaru, bibingkang abnoy, bayawak and more. But don't be petrified by their menu, they also cater to the less adventurous and also serves delicious local delicacies.
None of us were adventurous enough to try any of the exotic dishes! Hehehe! We only had a plate of Balaw-Balaw rice, which is a house specialty featuring seafood, chorizo, and vegetables served on banana leaves. For viand, we had ginataang hipon and a big bowl of halo-halo for dessert.
You can go around the place to look at the art pieces in the galleries. On the second floor of the restaurant, you can also find different forms of art- sculptures, paintings, and paper mache.
Your trip to Angono wouldn’t be complete without visiting this place. It is not just a restaurant and art gallery, but a museum of sorts.
How to get there
From EDSA Central, take a Binangonan bound FX or a jeepney, be sure that it will take the Highway and not the floodway. Just tell the driver to drop you off at the corner of Doña Justa subdivision. Balaw-Balaw Restaurant is just a few steps from the corner of the subdivision and the hi-way.
