ISDAAN FLOATING RESTAURANT

Over a year ago, in 2017, during our vacation to the Philippines, We happened to check some of the nice Restaurants within Metro Manila area and near Nueva Ecija. Then, my Grandmother suggested that we should go and try the new branch of Isdaan Floating Restaurant in Talavera Nueva Ecija which is fortunately very near to Cabanatuan City. I had no idea as to when it was first opened in Talavera, but I guess it was sometime in early 2017. I remember when we planned to go to the same branch somewhere in Tarlac a few years ago during my vacation as well but couldn’t able to.

To refresh with, Isdaan Floating Restaurant is a Theme restaurant that offers homey Filipino food along with a good ambiance that is perfect for family gathering.

There is also “tacsiyapo” wall where you are able to throw mugs, plates, or bowls on a specific part of the wall while shouting “tacsyapo”, which is a great way to vent your emotions and a stress reliever for everyone but unfortunately, it isn’t available that time.

I forgot what we ordered but it is a meal set good for a family of 10  and we had a variety of chicken, fish, pork, vegetable, and dessert for something like PHP5,500++.

We chose the floating dining hut and after the meal, we had the chance to roam around the park and took photos from the sculptures everywhere and the small pond with a lot of fish that you could also feed. But since we went on dinner time, I couldn’t able to snap nice photos from my phone camera and how I wish again that I had a better cam, haha!

Anyways, here are some of our photos taken;

RESTAURANT: SHABU SHABU

Restaurants in Bahrain

This doesn’t seem very extraordinary or very unusual place, but I find it quite satisfying to try some Japanese Resto for some time.

To have shabu-shabu!

Shabu shabu is a Japanese hotpot dish of thin-sliced meat and vegetables in boiled broth.

Boiled in the metal pot at the center of the dining table, while the pot is simmering, the ingredients are placed in the pot and is cooked at the table.

And since I haven’t tried this for a very long time, having this once again after so long is kinda exquisite and distinctive to my taste bud.

Plus, finally, I found the best ever siomai ever steamed in BH. =)

… who can ever say no to this tempting, delightful mouthwatering mint ice cream for dessert?

I don’t usually choose Japanese food (especially this very light one) to any get together with friends and I don’t prefer to eat buffet as well since I eat very little, but this is the kind of food that you will enjoy until the last drop of soup, so I would highly recommend trying at least once every while, plus very affordable for BD10.5.

Location: NANO Japanese Restaurant- Manama Bahrain

You will definitely love it!

BAMBU

Restaurants in Bahrain

After almost three months, I and my friends decide to meet out for dinner.

It has been a while since the last time we had a get together in a Korean Restaurant, Da Rae Jung, where food is quite expensive I would say but not that exquisite, well from my taste of food.–> Actually, it’s not that bad haha! But the fact that I do not like much of Korean food says it all.

Again, it’s a Monday Club on a Tuesday night dinner! 

After suggesting a lot of options from different fine-dine restaurants, we finally decided to try BAMBU!

It ’s a variety of Chinese, Thai, Vietnam cuisine. If you are craving for Chinese food, definitely I would suggest the superb food of BAMBU.

From Salt and Pepper prawns to mussels, to prawn toast and chicken rolls, and a variety of others, Beef, and chicken. 

The price is about BD12.500 per head but alcohol is not included if you want to go for with unlimited alcohol, the price would be BD16.

Mussels and Tempura.

With free Jasmine-tea after the meal.

Dinner starts from 7PM to 11Pm daily.

Location: Adliya, Bahrain

Where to eat in Bahrain- Le Meridien

Restaurants in Bahrain

Le Meridien Hotel is a 5 Star Hotel directly attached to City Center, BH Largest Mall. With that, they have one of the Best Restaurant named Baharat that offers a variety of cuisine, International, Mediterranean, Sushi, European, and Asian among others and have the chance to experience the Live cooking stations.

Ik, the price is a little bit costly, BHD28++ inclusive,(something like PHP4k per person) free flow of alcoholic beverage and BHD19++ inclusive, free flow of non-alcoholic beverage, but then, the quality of food, the ambiance, and the service is excellent, plus of course, what do you expect for a five-star hotel?

It’s like we were planning to set dinner with my old friends (used to be Monday Group), for a very long time but as always, we couldn’t find the best time when everyone is free as one would always be out of the Country. Until finally, we all decided to get together this Wkend (though some are still out of the Country) and pick Le Meridian Hotel in Seef area.

TBh, I’m not fond of Sashimi and sushi, haha, strange but true, I think I’m one of the few who doesn’t eat much of this food, but since there are a lot of choices and it was a Seafood Buffet that night, with a variety of starters and appetizers, so I agreed.

The food was exceptional, the seafood options were all so delicious and in good sized portions and different cooking. The choice of salads, cheeses, bread, sides, and desserts are exquisite. It is seafood night, but there are also choices for vegan, Asian, Indian and others. Free flow of unlimited drinks, I think I had a glass of pina colada, and a few glasses more of Mojito.

Not to mention that the staff was also so friendly, helpful and courteous and The band is great musicians, the whole experience with friends are a truly remarkable one.

So I had Oysters and Lobsters and Prawns to name a few.

To end with, I had fun with old friends. That (almost) once a year get together was a night full of catching up from the long lost time since everyone is now busy with own family life. I remember how we used to drink and rock the different bars and hotels until the wee hours of the morning, about 8 years ago and how life would eventually change when you started to focus on the real life.

Good food, good friends, a night of catching up, perfect restaurant!
