As we plan on family birthdays, we were searching for a place where we can dine with good food while not compromising intimacy of the occasion and the ambiance. Luckily, my bf suggested a place in Cavite-Balinsasayaw
. Based from my research about the place, Balinsasayaw was derived from a bird locally found in Palawan. Hence, the restaurant has its first branch in Palawan.
Our first visit there was during Mama's birthday.When we arrived, we were greeted by a bunch of crew dressed in refreshing,printed polo. The place is elevated with many kubos
or nipa huts in different sizes on different steps. It is pretty amazing as the place is like a trip to nature. Plants and flowers decorated the kubos
Another good thing about the place is the intimacy of each kubo
. There are light bulbs installed and a bell you can ring to call the waiters. You would not notice the happenings on the next kubo.
When we saw the menu, there were alot of enticing food listed. You can choose from veggies, to fish, to pork, to beef and all sorts of appetizers. They also have a wide selection of beverages.
We actually had two visits to Balinsasayaw, one for Mama's birthday and another during my birthday.
Here's a glimpse of the menu:
Here's the food we had on both occasions. Pineapple rice was one of the most memorable as the rice is literally sitting on a pineapple. However for those who doesn't like the taste of pineapple mixed with rice and a sticky, moist texture, you might just want to order plain rice.
The calamari and beef with broccoli also tastes good. It tastes comparably to other good restaurant who offers the same.
Beef Broccoli and Pancit
The serving size of grilled bangus is good for the whole family. Even the bulalo
is big enough to satisfy the whole barkada.
They also offer a variety of desserts. Their halo-halo is placed on a buko as well as their ice cream.
Another good thing is that they have clean restrooms left and right of the area. The waiters were also prepared with huge umbrellas escorting us to the entrance when it rained.
You can also buy souvenirs and delicacies at the entrance.
Balinsasayaw is an affordable place for huge group who doesn't want to sacrifice good food with price.
