#Foodtrip 2015: Ormoc Food Adventures

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Ormoc with family and friends.  The trip was not just about beautiful places but it was also about yummy food. For 3 days, my tummy was filled some of best dishes, delicacies, and food favorites that Ormoc has to offer.  Here some of the delicious food that made my Ormoc trip memorable.

Bahug Bahug

 We arrived in Ormoc around 3 pm and it was a good time for snacks.  We just went to a nearby bakery and bought some bread. +Nezte Virtudazo bought some bahug bahug (pudding) for us to enjoy.  Before the much more sophisticated Red Velvet became popular, the most popular red thing that you can buy in the bakery is the bahug bahug. I cannot help but feel nostalgic when we ate the flavorful bread pudding.

 Next up, Nezte and I went to lugawan and had some luggage and goto. We both ordered a rice porridge full of chewy yet delightful innards.   It was an excellent snack for less than 50 pesos.

Dinner at Yoyo's Seafoods Place

 The restaurant we visited often while in Ormoc was Yoyo's Seafood Place. The restaurant was basically a sutukil that features the fresh catch from the Ormoc City market. We loved the Sinuglaw, Grilled Blue Marlin and their Tortang Talong.  Yoyo's is definitely a good place if you love seafood.

Lake Danao National Park Outing

We went to Lake Danao and my aunt in Ormoc prepared some awesome dishes for our lunch. The heroes of our lunch were the different seafood dishes.  I had fun eating the halabos na hipon, crabs, kinilaw, sinugba, and the pusit. I did not want to stop eating.

 For my mom, the most enjoyable part was eating the nilung-ag na saging ug camote (Boiled bananas and sweet potatoes)

Special Bahalina: Chuvas Regal

 Nezte and I enjoyed 3 year old coconut wine (bahalina) made by Uncle Frank Tobio. The local wine was one of the highlights of Nezte's trip.  He loved it so much that he wanted to bring some to Cebu.

Sabin Resort

We stayed in Sabin Resort for 3 nights and we usually eat breakfast there.  Aside from the American breakfast that we usually get in the morning, we also tried their Crispy Pata and their famous Queen Pineapples. 

If my mom would tell me that we will go to Ormoc again, without hesitation I will say Yes. It such an awesome gastronomic adventure that left salivating while writing this post.

I will be back, Ormoc! :)
