Scrapyard Restaurant: Good food at reasonable price
No they don't sell scrap food here as the name implies. There are quite a number of local restaurants here in Angono but I took it to write this as my first review because my wife manages this restaurant and she will kill me if I dont do a nice review here.
Seriously, Scrapyard offers good food at reasonble price. They also have live bands on weekends and special occasions. They also have this local fastfood-cum-takeout counter outside, the Minalot goto and tapsilog.
Its fairly a good restaurant with a lesser name (I tried influencing her to change the name).
Favorite Dish: Since Itik (duck) is a popular delicacy in Angono- I would put here their version of fried itik as one of the best- because it is cooked using fresher oil than the ones you buy on fried itik stands.
I also like their sisig, hototay soup.
Balaw-balaw: Exotic Foods
One way to make a name is to be different and that is what Balaw-balaw did. Its one of the most famous restaurant in Angono because its more of cusine curio shop. It sells exotic foods- like snakes, wild boar or deer meat, beetle pupa (like big worms) etc. You order them not because you like it- but because you're curious. The name balaw-balaw itself is a local dish or sauce (not sure how to qualify it)- its more popularly known as a version of a "buro" or "binuro." The restaurant also offers other local dishes which I would say is okay and some of them reasonably priced.
The place also doubles as an art gallery as the owner is one of the known local artist- Vocalan Perdigon.
Favorite Dish: The "bilao" - sampler because its cheap and varied- more of -for a barkada feast.
