    The weather really sucked this past week. No stargazing for me. But at least we get some of the best sunrises and sunsets of the year. Picture1.jpg Picture2.jpg Picture3.jpg Picture4.jpg Picture5.jpg Picture6.jpg

    We found a very good indian restaurant "Curry" in the Aldecoa Dr., this is the street to the Silliman Hospital. Simple interieur, friendly staff, menue card not too big - we had 2 great fresh Mango Lassi, wife was happy with a chicken Biryani, I got surprised by a good portion of chicken Korma, we also tried the crispy fresh Naan bread and a salad with yoghurt dressing. Everything together for a very fair price - totally recommendable new restaurant. It's getting better and better in Dumaguete.

    Found a place the other day with pretty decent burgers. If you're going north on Flores, just after you pass by Hayahay keep going straight along the ocean. After just a short distance you will see this new center that is just constructed on the left. There are a few shops there, and a Mafioso restaurant that just opened (they still have a limited soft opening menu). Across the parking lot from Mafioso, back in the corner (and apparently owned by the same people that own Mafioso) there is a little place called Food Rehab that specializes in burgers. They have quite an assortment, bacon cheese, mushroom, Hawaiian, I had what was called the "What the Truck" burger. It was huge, covered with chili, and served in a cast iron skillet. It's a small little place, if you didn't know about it you would probably never find it, but if you're craving for a good burger I would recommend checking it out.

    There is a new german bakery that opened a couple of weeks ago now at the south end of the plaza square called Ludwigs bakery, very good quality bread and many different types to choose from, they also have a small cafe with a good range of foods to choose from and sell beer there as well.

    We have been buying bread there every few day and find the bread to very good quality

    Ate at Alex Pizzeria yesterday on third floor of Lee Plaza on recommendations from here. Both my daughter & I found it was way below average, overpriced(for what it was), dry, tasteless, low cost ingredients, reheated in an oven toaster. Never again.

    Wandered into a coffee shop yesterday in Dumaguete for a coffee and bite. Upon entering was immediately impressed, nice colours, no screaming music and nice clear black board menu.

    Ordered a latte and asked if the chicken sandwich was available, yes sir of course, was also given wi fi password. Coffee arrived with in a few minutes, tasted like fresh arabica beans, very nice. While waiting on sandwich was requesting help from the waitress to make a call. The owner manager appeared, introduced herself and offered to help me. Next she pulled out her cell made a call to Cebu, immediately through to manager and problem sorted....Wonderful.

    Gets better guys, this was maybe the best chicken sandwich I have ever eaten. Wonderful large super fresh bun, thick tender chicken breast, touch pineapple lettuce and best of all just a light smither of mayonaise. Delicious and all in a lovely ambiance.Just what Dumaguete needs.
    Price P165.

    Name......QYOSKO

    Where.....Opposite OK pension house.

    UPDATE!!! By the way! The hours are 9am to 9pm. Dining area is clean with open seating and a hostess greeting you at the door. Orders are placed easily and COLD service water is provided without request. There is a bar and alcoholic beverages are offered as well as shakes. The host and hostess crew is very courteous and prompt. An expansive menu; there are traditional Mexican dishes, Philippino cuisine, and American; with promises of adding more as the restaurant grows. With all of the choices it is easy to eat here more than once a week! The tortillas are hand made from mesa, the wrap is whole wheat, the salsa is fresh with real cilantro! The guacamole is simply amazing, chilled with a creamy blend of tomatoes and a hint of cilantro! This folks is authentic cooking with love! The balance of fresh flavors with talented cooking. Well done Juan and crew - I am thankful for the good food and warm welcome! I wish you many more good days in the future.

    We haven’t been able to have a family lunch at Casablabca for quite a while. Our boy had exams and finished early so the three of us went out for a special occasion. My wife and I shared a seared tuna with eggplant starter. She had a huge grilled chicken salad, I had a tasty chicken quesadilla and my son had pancakes. Gunther served us some home made Italian ice cream.
    The south highway to Bacong at night is too dangerous so we never go out for dinner so it is great that there are good lunch restaurants.

    I decided that I would get my dive certification while I was on the Philippines on vacation earlier this month. After a bit of research I made reservations at Mikes Beach Resort in Dauin and completed the classroom portion of this online before I came to the Philippines in order to save some time.

    Tom was my diving instructor and he did everything possible to accommodate my schedule in order that I could complete my certification and make it to a family reunion on Luzon. In spite of my demanding schedule they managed to get me through the practical portion of the padi course and get me to Apo Island for my final certification dive. I also had the opportunity to complete two additional dives at Apo on the same day.

    I was overall impressed with all of the staff, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The dive staff was all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The wait staff at the restaurant and bar were very friendly and exceptionally courteous. The food was also very good and I enjoyed every meal that I ate there.

    My room was one of the deluxe rooms and had an awesome view of the sunrise coming up over Siquijor Island every morning. The maid service was excellent and the room was quite comfortable convenient as it was directly across from the bar where I had most of my meals as well as my morning coffee.

    I fully intend to be back one day to do it again.

    Yup that's the one, it's now called true love.

    We arrived around 8pm and were immediately met by the very affable owner, sorry forgot his name. The place is not fancy how ever spotlessly clean and adequate for a nice meal. We chose to sit outside as inside is quite small and a few people there.

    Soon as we sat the complimentary food arrived, honestly larger than a normal starter. He is doing a dis service to himself here. Curries were excellent as was the chicken. Very impressed with costings and quality, my partner was given a tour of the kitchen which she compared to a surgery.

    The owner is over friendly and never left our table, this could be a consideration to first time diners wanting privacy. The guy is so friendly. Further he is involved in many charitable acts, feeding homeless kids and the like.

    All in all excellent food, modest surroundings, very affordable, we shall return, highly recommended.
