Bacolod Adventure: Day 3 (Aboy’s Restaurant, Manila)

We’re on our last day of our Bacolod trip and we had lots of free time on our hands. Unfortunately, since Mang Greg already picked up the car in the morning, none of us were in the mood to explore the city any further. Instead, we stayed in our room and slept the day away.

Well, some of them went for a swim. I, however, opted to hug the bed for as long as I could. Har. πŸ˜€

The only time we left the room was when it was time for lunch. We’ve been saving this restaurant for our last meal in Bacolod–Aboy’s. The place is huuuuuge. They have a large indoor dining area and an even bigger al fresco area. I reckon this is a local favorite with all the people (and tourists!) flocking to the restaurant. Such luck we have that we were a mere two-minute walk away. πŸ™‚

This is one of the few restaurants I’ve seen with its door closed. Yes, we didn’t know what was waiting for us inside. Apparently, it was a Cabalen-like ambiance. πŸ˜€ We headed straight to the imposing (and long) counter where the day’s dishes are neatly arranged for customers’ viewing. I don’t even remember what we ordered, as I bowed out of the pressure-inducing task of picking out dishes. πŸ˜€

This is the second best restaurant we’ve tried after Pepe’s. The photo above features the dishes I was able to capture–pusit, crispy pata, menudo and gulaman. I was too hungry to reach out my arms and take a picture of the rest. πŸ˜€

We went back to the hotel and slept (do we like sleeping or what?) until it was time to leave. We had the ever-so-nice Mang Greg pick us up. πŸ™‚

We booked the last flight out of Bacolod so we waited a long time at the airport. Good thing I was so focused on beating a friend’s Temple Run high score or else I would’ve banged my head on the wall in utter boredom. πŸ˜›

I’m in a love-hate relationship with this Bacolod trip. I hate that we ate so much food, but love the fact that we did. Er, go figure.
