In our Baler trip, 50 bucks is our agreed allocation for every meal. This means we went beyond our budget when we had our dinner in the restaurant of Bay’s Inn Resort, one of the well-known gastronomic destinations in Baler. Good thing we had extra money in hand, we just couldn’t pass up the chance to eat in a place that has won many a rave from tourists and bloggers.
It was a good thing we went there just before the crowd began to thicken so we were able to get a table. It has a view of the bay, which we hardly enjoyed since the night has already descended.
Waiting time for our food to be served was the only thing that I find irksome about the experience. In my estimation we waited for more than 40 minutes and I noticed other costumers who came in after us got served first. Just when I was thinking of walking out, the waiter finally came with our food. By, the way, forgive me for the poor quality of the pictures.
We had every manginginom’s favorite, Pork Sisig. This is not your usual sisig, it moist and tender, no crispy part at all. It’s like somebody got crazy with mayonnaise and put it all in in this sisig. It’s delicious though.
Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet (PHP 170) is my favorite because it’s flavorsome. The fish fillet is covered in a thich red sauce, tossed with fresh and crunchy vegetables.
Pako Salad (fern) (PHP 85) is one of the most popular foods on the menu and for a good reason. It is a generous serving of fern leaves, with spring onions, tomatoes, slices of salted egg and fish paste (bagoong isda) on the side.
My least preferred would be the Chicken Steak with Butter-lemon sauce (PHP 160). The chicken was a bit tough, has a weak flavor that not even the lemon sauce made any difference.
For drinks, I tried the overrated Banana Shake with Choco Syrup (PHP 70). First sip was enough to have us wondering why it’s one of their bestsellers because to be honest, there was nothing special about it.
We went back to this restaurant on our last day in Baler. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the foods that we ordered but I remember liking their Tuna Salad Sandwich (PHP 45) Pork Chop with Gravy (PHP 85).
A Baler gastronomic adventure wouldn’t be complete unless you go to Bay’s Inn and we deem it a must-try if ever you get to this part of Aurora.
