A few nights ago, we finished the third and
last day of a roller coaster fast in Church. We felt like we deserved to break
our fast and dine at a delicious restaurant. So along with my older sister’s
small group, we went to a new restaurant, which was getting a lot of praise
from someone in our group.
Resto Grill & Bar, it was a short drive away from the original Pala-Pala (Dampa style in Bacolod).
However, it is advisable that you bring a car when you go to the restaurant.
Palawud at night
Upon entering, I was in awe of the space of
the entire establishment. It was very spacious and was just on the edge of the
old Banago port. I borrowed some of the photos of their map on their Facebook
page to better provide an idea of how to get to Palawud.
As expected, Palawud offered the usual menu
found in grills: Sate Babi, Pork Sisig, Grilled Spareribs, and Inasal.
Seeing that they were located just beside the port, seafood was also a part of
the food they offered.
I was a bit disappointed though because
they did not have any shrimp left. I really wanted to eat their Chilli Garlic Shrimp but since it was
unavailable, I made do with the Grilled
Spareribs. At the same time, people told me that it was the most popular
dish in the restaurant.

Surprisingly, the spareribs had a very
familiar taste to me. I feel like I’ve eaten it in the past but I just could
not remember where I had it before. What I liked about the dish was that it was
not overly cooked. It was delicious and had a lot of flavour to it. Despite my
diet, I was able to finish what was on my plate because of how delicious the
My other companions ordered the Kinilaw and an order of Sinigang. I was unable to try them
though so I promise to give them another shot; along with the shrimp order,
when I return.

What I liked best about Palawud was that it
was very airy and cool. Since we came at night, there was a cool breeze in the
air that was only available if you lived near the beach.
