I was supposed to go at a friend’s house in Cainta, Rizal for our usual get-together when the owner of the house decided we go out since she’s been staying in her house for almost a month (after her operation).
She took us in an open-air restaurant which serves isaw (chicken or pig intestines), pansit (noodles), and other grilled or sizzling food. The prices are reasonable, the isaw (Php15 each) cooked to my liking (well done!), the bagoong rice is a meal itself but the waitresses are slow in catering to your needs – they do not seem to be enthusiastic in being of service to you. The food took a really long time before it was served. But I really love the isaw. We ordered for another round of isaw but it was taking too long we decided to cancel it.
After lunch, we went to Balaw-Balaw Restaurant which is also an art gallery.
Our next stop, just a few steps away from Balaw-Balaw Restaurant and Art Gallery, is the Nemiranda Restaurant and Art house. He is known for his works in EDSA.
We tried their halohalo since the weather was scorchingly hot and humid.
Of course I will not let their Restroom signage pass by without taking a picture. They labeled the restrooms according to the male and female sex organs.
It was a wonderful experience exploring the art places in Rizal. There are still several art places in Rizal to be explored and some I’ve been to when I was still young.
The art galleries have entrance fees but probably because it was a weekend, we were not charged for anything. 🙂
