The campaign trail has brought my colleagues and I to many places…
Going back to Manila from Camarines Sur, our gastronomical adventure brought us to this house-resto in Tayabas, Quezon.
It’s called Villa Javierito but the restaurant is “Catalinos”, apparently named after the owner’s patriarch. For a good hearty traditional Filipino meal, you’d want to visit this.
Its themed with old pieces of furniture & windows…overlooking a river and a hill near the boundary of Tayabas & Lucena.
A pako salad with salted egg in vinegrette is a good way to start the meal.
Here’s stir-fried noodles, locally known as “pancit hab-hab”. Best with vinegar.
The place is a good stop-over after a long travel from Bicol, going to Manila.
There is a wide array of antique furniture and kitchen wares.
