Liliw Laguna

Liliw Laguna Home in the Highlands

It’s my second morning here in Liliw and for two days in a row, I’ve woken up early. Right now it’s 6 AM, I usually wake up in Cebu at 8:30 AM or later.

What foodie place you shouldn’t miss when in San Pablo? I got to say its Joel’s Town restaurant. :) Ang lagi kong binalik-balikan sa kanila is their Liemposilog with chopsuey. It’s a hole-in-wall type of establishment, not a posh place, it’s more like a big size carenderia. It does not have fancy decors, no aircon but they definitely deliver on what counts most - delightful food offerings. Think Pinoy food favorites like pancit, sisig, lumpia, liempo, silog meals, they have it and it won’t … [Read the full article...]
