Iloilo City Restaurants

  • Huge, Huge Burgers

    It was our last day in Iloilo and we thought we'd drop by Perri Todd's to take out their burger for dinner at the airport. Their burgers are HUGE! It was almost the same size as my partner's head, I swear. Their servings are good for sharing. Try their cheesy mushroom premium burger. The only dish I tried was their premium cheesy mushroom burger....

  • MSG-Free Chinese Foods

    Since we were not familiar with the restaurants in the city yet, we decided to go to Robinson's mall on our first day to look for any restaurant that will fancy our hungry tummies. We saw Hongkong Kitchen and the pictures of their Chinese cuisine instantly appealed to us. Once inside the restaurant, I instantly felt the Chinese atmosphere. The...

  • Try Homegrown Ilonggo Dishes

    We wanted to try Ilonggo dishes, but we didn't want to eat in the stalls outside during the Dinagyang Food Festival. We saw Dapli Restaurant which is owned by the owner of Breakthrough, a popular restaurant in Villa. Since we ate at Tatoy's instead of Breakthrough, we thought we'd give Daplis Restaurant a try. The restaurant serves native food, and...

    Having read so many good reviews about the pioneer in "batchoy" restaurants, we made it a point to have 'batchoy" at TED'S OLDTIMER LA PAZ BATCHOY.We were so hungry because the Dinagyang activities ended past 1:00pm so we looked forward to have a hot, hearty serving of "batchoy". There were so many people in the Gaisano City Iloilo Branch, but we...

  • Young Ones' & Once YOung's Favorite!

    A friend who learned we were going to Iloilo City reminded me not to forget to eat at Afrique. We wanted to have lunch there on our first day but it was SRO, so on our second day, we made sure we could have our lunch there. We had late lunch but there were still many people. As I was looking at the menu board, the table nearest it was vacated. Luck...

    Nothing fancy for me. Their special is the "La Paz Batchoy" They are all claiming the Original but all taste the same. But this one is famous in Iloilo and can be found in many places like malls and on each district.We tried the one near the Jaro Cathedral. The price is not expensive for me.Batchoy is a noodle soup with crushed pork cracklings,...

  • yum!

    What a nice place! Esca's has a big open room with beautiful stained glass doors, then a back room that is semi air condtioned. The service was exccellent and food was very good and very cheap. I think we fed about 12 people for $15 US I had a tropical pork skewer, with pork, pineaple and veggies, and also a mango shake.

  • Tatoy's

    Tatoy's is quite famous here and is a large open room with a local menu. The oysters were fantastic here, but the chicken was very dry and flavorless. Service was great however and there was plenty to eat. Oysters were outstanding

  • since 1958

    Deco's has been around since 1958 and from what I understand, they invented batchoy. The debate goes on, who has better batchoy, Deco's or Ted's. I like Ted's better but most people I was with prefer Deco's I asked for the batchoy without innards, but as I bit into an chewy, intestine , I realized I was duped. This was further confirmed when I...

  • my frustrating search for real coffee...

    Good coffee in Iloilo is hard to come by. Most local places serve instant coffee and there is a severe lack of real milk or cream here. Someone told me Bluejay made good coffee. When I stopped in I was greeted by no less than 3 employees and informed they ground the beans fresh and they are of high quality. I ordered an americano (espresso and hot...

  • full meal for about $1

    This was a nice place downtown, but out the back door was a patio right on the river. Sadly, the patio was closed when we went. Meals are just over $1 US and will satisfy you. Everything comes with rice. I had Barbeque pork and rice, delcious (as all pork was)

  • Batchoy

    The debate goes on, which has better batchoy, Ted's or Deco's? Personally I liked Ted's better but the locals I was with all said Deco's reigned supreme.So what is batchoy? It;s a noodle soup with pork, including innards like liver and intestines. I don't like innards so I got mine without, it was very good.Cheap too, about $1 US per bowl. err,...

  • Pizza place

    Dos Marias was one of the few food establishments that were open in the city on Good Friday. They serve thin-crust pizza at PHP 300++ a plate. That's good for 8 people. Open until 2am, the place is cozy and good for get-togethers.

  • German food in the city

    When we were in college, we used to go to Bavaria during special occasions. Bavaria offers authentic German food. For us who were college studes on a tight budget then, we would share an order of rosti (an appetizer -- shredded potato) which was PHP 25 a plate then (year 2000). I don't know how much this appetizer costs nowadays. And Spezi (a kind...

  • affordable meals

    JD Bakeshop is hard to miss as they have several branches around the city - near UPV Iloilo campus, near WVSU (i forgot the street) in Lapaz, and San Agustin St. not far from University of San Agustin. Now, they also opened a branch in the departure area of the Iloilo Airport... And I was so happy to find out that even their airport branch serves...

  • Afrique's

    The Afrique's right beside the Hotel del Rio is a quaint little restaurant which serves Italian food. We ordered the Afrique's Special pizza and Seafood Marinara.

  • Balut and penoy

    If you missed that balut in Manila, fret not, Ilonggos love their balut, too! This is perhaps for the most adventurous, and probably the food that makes Philippine cuisine famous, or rather, infamous.Balut is boiled duck embryo - that says it all. It's the ultimate test when it comes to exotic Philippine food, but just try, you might acquire a...

  • Fried peanuts!

    Who says peanuts cannot be deep-fried? They are greasy but delicious! What makes them more tasty are the toasted bits of garlic which give a more robust flavor (and appetizing smell if you are a garlic lover). For the those who like their peanuts spicy, there are peanuts with chilli too.

  • Grilled corn on the cob

    A more local offering would be grilled corn on the cob sans the greasy butter. Best eaten on its own and warm and fresh from the grill.Grilled corn on the cob is very popular among locals and is available all year round. What is very special about this food is that it's such a treat to smell the fresh corn grilling and the popping sound of the...

    more
  • Cakes and pastries

    Another safe bet would be cakes and pastries on offer from the various bake shops scattered all over the city. There are lots of variety - typical bite-size cakes (like the ones the pic) or some local goodies like biscocho (finger-sized toasted cookies with butter and sugar), barquillos (delicious milk wafers rolled into cigar-shaped cookies with a...

  • Fruits

    On the "safe" and healthy column would be fruits - lots of variety from apples to oranges to tropical favorites like bananas, papaya, watermelon, chicos, custard apples (my favorite), manggosteen, mangoes (the most delicious variety in the world!), and for those who can tolerate its horrid smell, but heavenly taste - durian - the king of Southeast...

  • Quikiam

    You'll never go hungry on the streets of Iloilo. There are lots of goodies on offer for everyone - from the usual "safe"choices, to those for the more adventurous.Quikiam is what I would put in the middle ground between "safe" and adventurous. This Chinese-originated delicacy is usually made flour with bits of seafood like squid, shrimp or crab...

  • Yummy!

    From the resto motto:"Better than fresh! LIVE!!!That says it all. The restaurant has been awarded as the best local restaurant 2 years in a row.Well, the best seafood need not be cooked with fancy ingredients. All one needs is to start out with the freshest and the rest will follow. But location and ambiance helps to make the food taste better....

  • So-so

    It is a local favorite. They serve fresh seafood at reasonable prices. I saw a lot of families and balikbayans dining there. The wait staff are slow and not quite up to the mark. The restroom is not as clean as I would like it. Fresh oysters, shrimps, crablets and mango salad.

  • Yummy chicken

    Bacolod and Iloilo is known for the famous chicken inasal, chicken specially grilled to juicy perfection, best enjoyed with 'sinamak' or aged palm vinegar with ginger, onion and other spices. Several restaurants in the Visayas and in Metro Manila prides of making the best chicken inasal, i have to sample each and every one to be any real expert on...

  • Mom's choice of batchoy

    Ted's is like a regular fastfood restaurant, nothing's so special about the ambience. At least, i've been to their branch at La Sallette Bldg, Valeria Street. Again, La Paz Batchoy was my purpose of visit. I guess to taste to real thing, i need to taste several versions of the batchoy to acknowledge how Ilongos make them differently. My mom...

  • All good Ilonggo eats!

    I've tasted La Paz Batchoy from various restaurants in Metro Manila and wherever else but one has to really taste it from Iloilo City, and you'll know what you've been missing. La Paz batchoy in Iloilo actually tasted different. I'm no culinary expert and only a gal with a penchant for good food, but one will agree batchoy in Iloilo, particularly...

  • Good view of Guimaras Island

    Definitely seafood! The pinakbet is also very tasty. The view and the breeze though definitely made it worth our while.Etc:Open air but non-smoking. Well-patronized at lunchtime, so come early. Pinakbet - not too salty, not soupy, veggies cooked just right - YUMMY!

  • "Da Best ang Sisig Bords!"

    How to get there: Tib's Rock is a local lunch hang-out, especially with college kids but it's just a local thing - tourists don't get to try the great food lest a local takes you there. It's in Mandurriao, take a cab to Tib's; you'll get lost if you take the jeepney. The place: Tib's rock is a shack with bamboo plants around the place. You get to...

  • Sweetest, Juciest, Biggest Oysters in...

    How to get there: This by-the-street resto is 10 minutes away from Iloilo City in a town called Oton. Getting there is fast since you may ride a taxi which would cost you Php 90-100 or ride a really cool jeepney for Php 12 (You're choice) - the latter just gets your hair messed up though, they go at 80-100kph!The place: You get to walk on sand. The...

I love everything on the menu* Don't forget...

  • Great Ambiance - Bamboo, Grass,...

    It's basically looks like an ordinary house. Customers would have to go through the side door or through the house to the backyard where everything is set. It's basically like having dinner in your backyard under the "mango tree" with lights held by bamboo posts and lush grass carpeting your feet. The food is ok for me - It didn't knock my socks...
