Balaring: food tripping

one of the best place to eat seafood, with a view of the sea in Negros Occidental, is barangay Balaring. located on the coastal area of Silay City, which is about 35 to 40minutes away from Bacolod city.it is quite a long drive from the city and the sky was cloudy when we were driving our way there. when we reached the barangay, it rained hard. we were quite lucky because we reached the place before it rained. after some few minutes, sky was clear and it looked like it didn't rain. just in time for us to start eating Balaring's fresh seafood delicacies.the restaurants here are mostly made up of bamboo cottages standing above the shoreline. there are several restaurants here but we chose Tama Plaza because of its unique look from the other restaurants. their specialty includes the sea shell "talaba", squid, fishes and shrimps. who would not love that?

madbong said...

pards, long time no hear. musta ka na? mukhang kakaiba nga yung motif nitong restaurant, mahilig din ako sa seafood.

REDLAN said...

i don't love seafoods but crave na crave gid ko!

location palang, parang ang sarap-sarap ng kumain, at seafoods pa! sigurado di mawawala ng sugpo at alimango...hintayin ko na muna 'yong food bago pa tumulo laway ko..xx xx xx

i love the ambiance. madaming makikita sa paligid habang nag-iintay ng order. so you were also in Bacolod (juz like Ferdz and the gang). not same trip, i guess. i should be in Bacolod too. been there a long time ago and new surroundings always take half the fun off my memories.

bw said...

nice looking huts. I love the red painted bamboo posts :) Is this close to a fishpond?

Share my point of view... said...

Glad to be home and the first thing I did was catching up with a few blogs! I love this particular entry because it's food related =P plus I'm still feeling hungry!

EM said...

Sarap kumain dyan habang umuulan...tapos inihaw na tuyo, itlog na maalat at kamatis ang ulam. Nyay! Namiss ko na naman ang Pinas and its rains!

Hay.... buti nalang may pictures.

Carver said...

That sounds like a wonderful place to eat. I love how colorful the cottages are. Very attractive.

Lawstude said...

bro ang ganda nga ng place. sarap din siguro ng squid at shrimp nila dyan kasi fresh tyak. kung anjan ako order agad ako calamare at hipon na niluto sa butter at garlic na medyo spicy pa. yum-yum. ginugutom tuloy ako.

>kegler, tama ka dyan. kasi parang nasa dagat ka talaga.

>hi luna, naku hindi na ako nagpicture kasi gutom na ako pagnakikita ko ang pagkain. hehehe.... punta ka sa balaring kasi kasama ang byahe sa pagiging espesyal ng lugar.

>madbong, lutong dagat yung style doon. hehehe... oo nga. matagal din kasing nawala tong blog. sarap talaga ang seafood.

>redlan, oo nga. buti na lang hindi kami inabutan sa daan. try mo rin ang balaring kasi malayo pero sarap din bumyahe papunta doon kasi tagong tago ang lugar.

oo kasi lahat ng comment nila para sa akin. hehehe... salamat sa post.

>mangyan, hahaha... tumpak ka dyan. lugar palang ma eenganyo ka na talagang kumain.

>hi rayts, no. i was not with ferdz, oggie and erick. they were here weeks back. bumisita ka ulit kasi dami nang pwedeng puntahan doon ngayon.

just keep in tocuh for upcoming posts. siguradong ma eenganyo ka na bumalik sa bacolod.

>bw, it is by the sea. im not sure if there's a fish pond. most likely there are fish ponds in the area. i also like those huts.

>share, thanks a lot. it's good to know that you're back. sorry though because i dont have shots of the foods.

>hi em, oo. sana nga makauwi ka na ulit. dami nga talagang mamimiss sa pinas.

>hi carver, im sure you'll love the food there because they are fresh.

>lawstude, oo. patok ang mga pagkain doon. siguradong busog na busog ka pagkumain ka doon. mura din kasi. medyo malayo nga lang sa bacolod.

Ely said...

hmmm, food trip! the last time na kumain ako mga sea foods, na-highblood ako. hehehe. puro kasi crabs.

nice place.

Photo Cache said...

this place has so much local color it would be a must see when going there. and I bet the food/sea food is to die for.

eye in the sky said...

nice murals too.

EastCoastLife said...

This place is so cool! I would love to visit.

SandyCarlson said...

I am so hungry right now I can't stand it, and your pictures made me hungrier--for good food and beautiful places!

R-yo said...

great place. i have been to Bacolod a few times but not in Balaring.

The thought of the seafoods already made me gain weight! Kakagutom!

Luke Wiley said...

those structures don't look at al like restaurants, but I don't like seafood anyway.

Tink *~*~* said...

Love the painting in the last photo on the blue background. So colorful and cheery!

Sandy B and Dick said...

Great combination--food and a view of the sea!

the donG said...

>ely, nasobrahan ka nun. hehehe... kailangan din talagang magcontrol.

>photo cache, food is really something that you'll crave there because the place alone reminds you that the food is fresh.

>hi eye, that mural makes the place more attractive.

>hi eastcoastlife, place is simple yet the food really taste good.

>hi sandy, sorry for that. but im sure you'll have a nice meal within the day.

>r-yo, food is good there but its the view that also adds a good ambiance of the coastline.

>luke, its basically a simple restaurant made up of bamboos and woods located on the shorelines.

>tink, that surely adds color to the place.

>oggie, oo relaxing talaga ang view doon. hindi na namin napuntahan yung mga nasa dulo kasi nung dumating kami talagang nagbuhos ang ulan pero saglit din lang at naging maaraw kaagad.

hahaha... malamang doon nga nasira tiyan mo.

>hi doc rio, oo nga. kaya wala ng picture kasi gutom na talaga ako at iba ang dating ng pagkain doon.

hahaha... lulusog nga talaga kasi daming kainan doon sa bacolod.

>jasper, we were there for a business and family visit.

>hi shionge, exactly! the place alone already sets the ambiance of eating a lot.

>ever, kaya talagang blessed ang pinas pagdating sa mga ganitong pagkain. lalo na doon kasi fresh pa ang mga isda, sugpo at talaba.

>jericho, masarap talaga kumain doon.

>hi sandy, you're right! the view sets the mood to eat a lot.

Pietro said...

Very pleasant and picturesque place to have food.
Another great post.

beero said...

salingPUSA said...

I love nipa huts.....especially during summer and the air is blowing. Always reminds me of home....

Erick said...

dom,
grabe! naaalala ko tuloy yung trip namin. sarap dyan. sarap ng food and relaxing yung place. dun kami sa dulo e, sa dagat talaga.

Heart of Rachel said...

Looks like a nice place to eat out. I like eating in cozy bamboo cottages especially if Filipino food is served.

the donG said...

>hi vanny, hehehe... naku mahirap yung ganyan kasi daming masarap na seafoods.

>pietro, thanks. im glad that you like places like this.

>beero, hehehe... naku pagnakita mo ang pagkain mawawala ang isip mo na allergic ka.

>salingpusa, same here. when we were there it rained so hard and wind was blowing hard too. but it didn't last long.

>hi equi, i hope that you can visit bacolod. there's a lot of place to visit there. for my travel, it's part of the business that i am planning plus the community that i am serving right now. sometimes it's personal and sometimes it's part of our service.

>erick, oo nga. naalala ko nga yung kuha mo dun ng sunset tsaka nung nasira ang tiyan ni oggie doon. hehehe... hindi na kami umabot sa dulo kasi biglang umulan nung pagdating namin.

>hi rachel, yes. filipino seafood in a cottage is something to crave.
