    VjANDEP Pastel of Camiguin: Freshly baked pastries

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 5, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    VjANDEP Pastels and other products are available nationwide in SUPERMARKETS and HYPERMARKETS, but I felt like a little girl when I entered their TIANO BROTHERS branch after our road trip to the Province of Bukidnon(Dahilayan and Malaybalay).

    The trip was fun, exciting, exhilarating, and fulfilling, but very tiring too. Visiting this store removed all my frustrations and energized me a bit.

    Even if I didn't have enough money to buy all my friends and familypasalubong(roughly translated as 'treats for those who are waiting for me...who are welcoming me back' ...It literally means going towards each other), I was able to buy enough for my immediate family and a few friends.




    Important Facts about VjANDEP

    VjANDEP means "VJ"-Virgilio Jose, "AND" "EP"-Eleanor Popera

    How do you say it? VANDEP (Silent J)

    Description
    HISTORY, ALL FROM PRAYERS…

    From simple prayers, sometime in December of 1989, God answered Ella to bake her great grandmother’s bread for a hobby, and that is PASTEL.

    PASTEL is a Spanish term for CAKE. By our ingenuity in grammar, PASTEL has long been called in English, as a soft dough coffee bun whom the Spaniards has generously taught our ancestors and made PASTEL as part of a Camiguingnon’s delicacy. This made PASTEL a common treat in the tables of the affluent Camiguingnons of the time, especially during special gatherings and occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, fiestas, Christmas and the like.

    Eleanor Popera Jose, a true blooded Camiguingnon, was the first to commercialize PASTEL on January 8, 1990 from what was left of her husband’s Christmas bonus, thus dated the beginnings of VjANDEP PASTEL (pronounced with silent “j”, which stands for Virgilio Jose AND Eleanor Popera). The initial capital of P120.00 has yielded three dozens of the said buns which doubled the following day and onwards. It was just simply a hobby at first, until Ella saw a great potential in the product, thus, she continued producing PASTEL up to this date.

    PASTEL originally has “yema” (custard) for its filling. But during the summers of 1990 to 1993, Ella learned from culinary and baking workshops the rudiments and techniques of baking. She then reformulated the PASTEL to what is now the pillar of coffee bun taste. Today, the VjANDEP PASTEL OF CAMIGUIN has 12 variety of fillings to satisfy the fancy of your taste buds.

    PASTEL REMAINS AN ETHNIC PRODUCT OF REGION 10.



    The above description made me fall in love with this Pastel company all the more. Besides being the first to commercialize this product and being the number Pastel company in Region 10, their faith and dedication added to the "charm". :)

    Favorite Dish:

    PASTEL(Their signature product...they are the first ones who commercialized
    These are my favorite flavors:

    1. Ube (Purple Yam or Taro)
    2. Original Yema (Custard like filling)
    3. Chocolate
    4. Kalabasa ug Kamunggay/Malunggay (Squash Moringa)




    Pastillas de leche (Sweet Milk tablets or capsules or sticks)




    Their cupcakes are moist





    I love their siopao(white buns with meat filling) and their mamon (sponge cake)





    They also make celebration cakes(just imagine the delicious fillings on top of the cake...let your imagination run wild...they are capable of making designer cakes too).

    Dear Manok, Tiano Brothers: Wow oh Wow!

    by nixca316 Written Oct 3, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has a wonderful atmosphere at night, even when it's filled with people happily dining. They serve the freshest fish and very tasty chicken. All the food listed on their menu are very, very affordable and delicious.

    Sad to say, they only accept cash, but since it's so affordable, why would you need a credit card?

    It's a good thing I brought along 4 pieces of antihistamine so when I learned that we were eating there, I drank one tablet. It's better to safe than sorry(I'm allergic to chicken, shrimp and certain kinds of flowers---yes, some flowers are edible).

    The service could be better, but they are nice and helpful enough.

    They have function rooms for all occasions and a play area for kids.

    The place is clean...even the toilets.

    Yes, yes...it's not in the league of 5 to 7 star restaurants, but for a grilled chicken place, it's one of the best there is in town.

    Favorite Dish: Try their grilled chicken, their version of halo-halo(mixed fruits, jellies, ice, sweets and ice cream...most of the people add milk and sugar), their buko juice, their tinolang Tanguigue(Fish soup) etc.

    For PhP89.00 you get a large piece of grilled chicken with unlimited ice

    Add Php10.00 for the buko juice in a glass

    So for less than a hundred Philippine Pesos, you get a full meal.

    :)

    If you have a big appetite, it wouldn't hurt to add a viand or two, plus dessert because it's not heavy on the pocket. :)

    Bigby's Café & Restaurant, Limketkai Center: A place where you can come "Home" to

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 3, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Read Bigby's history here

    Bigby's was introduced to me in Davao at SM Davao and then I was hooked. I was happy to hear that they opened a branch at the Mall of Asia, but unfortunately, it folded, being a little bit similar to Gilligan's. Fortunately, they still have a branch in Mega Mall at the 3rd floor of the Atrium.

    Anyways, I'm not here to talk about that branch, but this one at the Limketkai Center's Rosario Strip.

    It is very spacious and their servers are really, really friendly.

    Everyone enjoyed their orders and tummies were satisfied.

    Even at Coffeeworks we were raving about the food, the service, and the serving.

    Dining at Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant is truly an unforgettable experience and they dearer to me now when they said, "Thank you for dining WITH US!" Most of the Restaurants forget to add WITH US. I know this may sound shallow, but to me, that is important. I won't expound.

    ;-D

    Read about some of their awards here

    Favorite Dish:

    Decisions, decisions. What dish do I love the best? Geez. It's hard because all are good. The servings are big and great for sharing. If you play your cards right, once you receive the tab, your pockets won't feel like there are holes...

    The salads, pasta, and other meals are great.

    It's best to try the platters/samplers if you're with family and friends.

    Their version of Sinuglaw Food Trip Platter Southwest Barbecue Fish Salad Bermuda Triangle Salad Happy diners :)

    Coffeeworks, Limketkai Center: One of the fave coffee places in CDO

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 3, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    There's something about this coffeehouse that made me stop and stare while we were looking for Taza(I am not sure, but I think the Limketkai branch is still being renovated). The people were enjoying the food they were eating. Some were giggling and the others couldn't wait for their turn. They were so excited to get their orders.

    Still, we were hungry and the food they offer are so light that we ate dinner at Bigby's first.

    After a very nice time at Bigby's, we could have tried their coffee and desserts, but I guess my friends noticed that Coffeeworks branch too.

    The Coffeeworks staff are very friendly and warm, but that Friday night they were undermanned that they mixed-up the orders. Anyways, we still had fun there after eating at Bigby's, which was just a few meters away.

    I think it's one of the favorite places the teens and the yuppies love to hang out at.

    The place is clean and there's a light feeling upon entering. Maybe it's not the best coffee in the world, but they are very, very competitive in taste and the atmosphere even adds spice to it. :)

    Favorite Dish: We just had coffee and tea. What can I say? We enjoyed our drinks. My doubly described Matcha Green Tea Frappe was not sweet at all, but I finished it.

    The models ;-p (from my friend's camera)

    by jessgotdestiny Written Jun 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vienna Kaffeehaus sets you in right to a European ambience, once inside. Orchestra music is played in the background to add to that mood.

    Favorite Dish: Begin with the Mushroom Soup . Then, the classic Berner and Hungarian Sausage are usually my main course favorites. Drink to that a bottomless Lemonade .

    Bagong Lipunan Restaurant: Let's eat, Pancit!

    by jessgotdestiny Updated May 8, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    True to its famous line, Bagong Lipunan is indeed the Home of the Best Pancit in the City of Cagayan de Oro. This place is usually swarmed with a lot of people come lunch or dinner time. At a glance, it couldn't be the interiors since inside everything looked simple. By taste and smell, yes, it must be the pancit or the Filipino version of noodles that the people came for to eat.

    Favorite Dish: Ask for their specialty of the house Pancit and that's exactly what everyone's looking for. Add to that a serving of Beef steak , grilled pork liver or Sinugbang atay , and a Halang-halang , may it be pork or beef depending on your choice. These would definitely go best when served with a very cold Coke.

    Butcher's best!: ..it's the sisig..yum yum..

    by rairaiken Written Apr 3, 2012

    I love this place! Everytime I go home I always make sure that I eat at Butchers. It's located at the heart of the city which is in Divisoria, price is affordable and the barbeque taste so good. You will feel bloated after eating in Butchers.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish??to start with it will be the pork sisig,nom..nom..nom.. Then there's the pork BBQ, hot and spicy BBQ and chicken BBQ. The Angus beef was good also. They used to have this kimmy rogers but I don't think they still have it. I have to eat there again when i get back to update this review and post some pics.

    Thai Me Up: Everything but with a Tom Yam

    by jessgotdestiny Updated Mar 3, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aside from their interesting menu, Thai Me Up has its way of putting up interesting interiors around the place. Just recently, they renovated to a better and more delightful one. I love the spontaniety of their dining tables and chairs, and the hanging lanterns. There's also this small setup which resembles the typical design of Filipino window.

    And speaking of renovation, they blended Filipino tastes in their menu. Thus, not just only Thai Me up but they tied Fill Me Up as well.

    Favorite Dish: Our favorite order consists of the Shrimp Tom Yam Soup , Spicy Pomelo salad , Fish fillet in Black pepper sauce , and some Spring rolls . Why it's good? Because it's spicy with a twist.

    Ambience is good. You'll get to feel professionality and elegance when inside. There are a variety of wines on display and delightful desserts to try.

    Favorite Dish: Fish Hainanese is served best.
    Or if you're hungry, try the Don Juan chops .
    My friends' favorites are the Baby Back Ribs which I haven't tried yet.

    La Vetta: Great french cuisine at a really worth it price

    by Jimbo222 Updated Feb 2, 2011

    The ambiance is great. You definitely will feel that it is an "expensive" place. (Although the cost of the food wasn't really that costly when you compare it to Manila). They have deli (cold cuts, cheese, wine, and the like)
    This is the type of place that you would want to hang out and chill in. Really cozy place.
    This is my favorite restaurant in Cagayan de Oro! :)

    Favorite Dish: I loved the Beef Carpaccio. This dish usually costs expensive and would cost at least 400 pesos in other restaurants. It only costs 195 pesos in this restaurant. Aside from being cheap, the beef was soft, and it greatly complimented the cheese and the oil.

    DV. Soria Night Cafe: Night Cafe

    by yannie00 Written Jan 28, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Friday and Saturday in CDO city they close the main road.
    The whole street turned into a restaurant.
    They call it the night cafe.
    The food there was okay.

    We had about 5 different dishes and we paid 700 pesos, including drinks and rice.

    I do advise to have your own cups and spoons though because we noticed that they reused these items. (they just washed them they aren't new.)

    Butcher's Best: Best barbecue in town

    by master_oj Written Oct 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some friends who have visited CDO before recommended Butcher's Best restaurant. We went there for our dinner after our long (strenuous) day with white water rafting activity. The ambiance of the place is similar to Dencio's Bar and Grill here in Manila but the food price is way cheaper. The food taste great and the price is really reasonable.

    Favorite Dish: You should try all their best sellers including barbecue and steaks.

    Specialties:
    Original sisig -chopped and grilled or broiled pig's head
    Sinug wOW - Grilled pork belly served with soy sauce and onions.

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this restaurant cum Bar and Live Band claims that they have the freshest catch and the freshest sea food and also offer native cagayan de oro cuisines plus a smatteriing of other regional and national filipino specialties. They also offer live entertainment via a live band with no cover charge hence this restaurant is a popular nitespot here.

    Favorite Dish: besides the fresh sea foods like the tuna sashimia at 180 pesos an order. how about sizzling squids at 140 pesos an order and the Native Cebu Style Lechon (different from the Luzon Island kind where you don't need a dipping sauce and is stuff with lemongrass) at 380 pesos a kilo. Beers start at 40 pesos an order and cocktail drinks start at 100 pesos an order.

    Nice Area more food! has a live band! more! encore!

    Sentro's location and selection makes it a nice choice for an evening meal in CDO. It seems to be among the best in town, in fact. The service is adequate and the preparation is above average.

    Favorite Dish: I had the tenderloin steak and the tangigue grilled fish. Both were tasty.
