Los Banos, Laguna Food Trip 2: Del Cielo

Let's continue our food trip, shall we? Just to show you how I gained 3 kilos in 2 weeks.

Our next stop was Del Cielo, SEARCA branch. This is inside the UPLB campus behind the Women's Dorm. Totally hidden from tourists. I think you have to be bred and born in UPLB to find this one. Unless you are staying in SEARCA. Getting dizzy with the acronyms? Sorry. If you really want to find this place just ask where the Women's Dorm is then walk up to SEARCA hotel and there it will be.

I liked the decor of the restaurant and the display of baked goodies near the entrance.  It looked very homey. 

For appetizer we had artichoke and spinach dip. A little too few artichoke and spinach than how I make it but it's still good.

We also had a pumpkin soup. I will give it very high points for presentation.

I could never resist ordering crispy pata. This is the boneless variety. This was really yummy.

Sans rival is really without rival. I have to say though that the best sans rival I had in my life is by my Ninang Merly. I don't know where she is now last I heard she is having a restaurant in San Pablo. I hope she still makes sans rival.

Los Banos, Laguna Food Trip 1: Seoul Kitchen

I don't feel like I have been gone for so long but obviously I have because I suddenly realized that there are a lot of new and exciting restaurants in LB. I tried to try them all! I gained almost 3 kilos in 2 weeks of trying!  I could only do so many many, I still have to enjoy my mom's cooking after all.

Our first stop is Seoul Kitchen. This place is on F.O. Santos street in Umali Subdivision, Los Banos. This is one of the many Korean restaurants that popped up in UPLB in recent years. There is a big Korean explosion in the Philippines and in LB. I don't know if I got used to big servings in Europe but I found the servings too small. I had a kimchi rice, my mom got a japchae and my husband had a spicy beef bulgogi. It's all good but I was still hungry after.

Just me and the Matterhorn.

The best tacos in Los Barriles can be found at El Viejo. Yum.
