Isdaan ( Philippines)


In my last entry, I shared our trip to Casa San Pablo. After we left the place, we proceeded to this famous restaurant " Isdaan". " Isda" means fish in English. This restaurant opened for not so long ago.


This is the entrance. It is twilight, but still you can see the reflection in the water.


Come  along and let us take a look. It is not only a restaurant. They also have different kinds of entertaiments  to offer to the guests.

                                                   Along the way

                     Look what I found! A partner for the night:)

The purpose was to eat, so a waiter leaded us to this place where they can serve our  dinner.

They gave free ballons for the kids. My son was just holding the ballons for his kids:)

 Borrowed few pictures from my daugthers      blog: http://www.michiphotostory.com/2013/04/isdaan.html


 Our dinner was served on banana leaves to be eaten by hands. Typical Filipino cuisine. I missed these kinds of foods.



                                         The hungry guests:)


So for the kids: boating for free, but  you must give tip to the boatman.

 My son-in-law and my grandchild Ethan.


They didn't find a horse, but the rooster were good enough. My grandkids : Candice, Andrei and Aerith                              

They rode bikes: Candice, Zyrish, Zimon and my oldest daughter Chelsea
 

They visited  Donald duck too!

More to see: Big fishes. Not for eating of course

Oh! We found Obama!

and his wife Michelle:)

                                          Meet the son of Kingkong

and  his father Kingkong

beautiful ladies

 a mermaid

 she just lost her head:)

The carabaos are not for riding

And what delighted us most was the Folkdance. A show they offer every weekend I believe.

So it was worth a visit. This place is located in Laguna near my mother's place in Victoria. I will surely come back again with my grandkids of course:)

Goodnight!

  1. Hi, Kamusta?
    Cool post !

    Serving food on banana leaves is typical Kerala style too ! Now-a-days because of rapid urbanization this practice happens only during festival times because of scarcity of leaves. In some specialty restaurants they serve food on plantain leaves, lovely !

    Will blog about 'Onam' soon in the coming months, as you know it is the most important festival in our place ! Then you will see how we serve food in typical Kerala style !

    Nice to know that we have something in common:)
    Thanks for visiting!

    1. Magandang umaga po !

      Ah, having stayed in the middle east for many years anyone would learn some words in many languages. The place is full of people from different countries. Plenty of OFW :)

      Its Onam ! Will blog about it in the coming months when we celebrate it.

      Nice comments on my blogs. Looking forward to such positive and lively words on all the posts, both from the past as well as the future on my two blogs. God bless !

  7. It sounds like such a fun trip! The photos are beautiful. I am teaching a preschool summer camp this week and our theme is Asia. So today they learned about China and they made flags and a hat. I hope to include the Philippines this week too.

  15. Wow, nag-boodle feast kayo sa Isdaan! I'd like to visit this place too but many reviews I've read online says that the their food is pricey. It's also like a theme park where you get to enjoy huge pieces of landmarks and personalities. Mahal nga ba Ate Joy?
