Dumaguete Eats: Bellychon at Qu4dros Grill

Who doesn't love lechon?

During our recent trip to Dumaguete, we saw this Bellychon at Qu4dros Grill restaurant a few meters from our hotel but didn't get the chance to dine until our last day which was such a shame because the lechon was so good!

This is not really a "restaurant" but more like a canteen-type where they serve some veggies and other dishes aside from their specialty- bellychon or lechon belly. Food was quite affordable, P80 for a serving of bellychon with unlimited rice! Veggies costs P40 per order. There's also a group meal that costs around P300 and it has a hefty serving of bellychon and rice plus drinks. Super affordable meal!


We ordered two bellychon with unlimited rice and a serving of veggie- ginataang langka with monggo and lechon. The servers doesn't speak tagalog and just a few english words so our order of bangus didn't arrive (but who orders bangus when there's lechon, right?) and instead of just water for drinks, we were given a bottle of Pepsi. Lost in translation but the taste really made up for the missing bangus hahaha. 


This is the heavenly serving of bellychon with unli-rice. Being true to form, lechons in the Visayas doesn't need "sawsawan" or "sarsa" like the lechons in Manila or in Luzon. This bellychon is really, really flavorful (thanks to the herb-rub and spices), and lucky us because it just came off the oven, este "ihawan." Imagine the crunchy skin and soft and flavorful meat paired with hot rice... then you wash it down with cold Pepsi. Heaven!


This is the ginataang langka with monggo and lechon. Another heaven on a plate. The langka was creamy and the monggo added some texture and flavor to it.


To sum it up, we had a very simple but quite a memorable meal at Qu4dros Grill. When food is really this good, it creates a happy memory that will make you want to come back. Hoping that we can dine here again soon!

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
