Located on a hilltop in Del Carmen, Wishyouwerehere serves amazing and mouth-mouthwatering tender smoked pork and beef ribs. We also love their smoked and grilled butterfly shrimp. It's a nice, simple, cool windy place that has a beautiful Iligan sunset view for you to relax while feasting on great food and drinks. #wishyouwerehereiligan #wshyouwrhr #tokina1116 #tokinaph #ayosaoiiligan

9000 Cagayan de Oro City
I can see the future for it is coming, I saw the past for it is over, but it is the present who always stare at me in the mirror. I don't hear it say hello to the future nor bid goodbyes to the past. What matters is the moment for each second fades, a new one begins but, it never really stays. The moment I count, it is already a memory. I better take a snapshot, at least it is a piece of that present moment I can always bring with me for you to see. @ Payag Restaurant 2nd floor. #tagbilaran #bohol #poetography #feelingphilosophical #canon60d #tokinalens #cropped #poetographyseries000005
An hour before, this place was full of people enjoying their lunch. The place for me does look like an old national heritage turned into a museum of chicken decors. Yes, almost everything are all about chicken @ beautifully aged Payag Restaurant. #tagbilaran #bohol #visitph #travelph #oldhouse #joschickeninato #canon60d #canonph #tokinaph #tokina1116
Gerarda’s Family Restaurant is one of Bohol’s well known restaurant that serve really good Filipino cuisine. When we went there, it was almost jam-packed with people. I can imagine it is a great place to bring your family for a dinner or with your fellow officemates for some satisfying lunch on a weekends. This is where we decided to take our small dinner (I’m trying to lose weight lol) for the night and we ordered one of their popular best sellers which is the Dinakdakan, a grilled and chopped pork belly with spices and coconut milk. We paired it with the always appetizing chicken chicharon (deep fried chicken skin cracklings) for a simply perfect Pinoy combo dish.
The first on our list of places to see is Bohol Bee Farm at Island City Mall because it was the nearest from where we were staying. We did visit the Bohol Bee Farm in Panglao a few days later but only the Buzzz Cafe in Alona beach (which I’ll be posting a blog too).
Anyway, Bohol Bee Farm prides itself as a restaurant that serves organic food. Their products mostly comes from their very own organic farm which also provides jobs and livelihood projects for the Boholanos. Their also famous for their honey (of course) and pesto spreads. Me I personally loved the honeyspread.

The food and drinks!!!
It’s not hard to find Bohol Bee Farm in Island City Mall. It’s just in the ground floor going right from the main entrance. The Mall itself is not really large so you won’t get lost finding those bees. However, if you’re planning to visit Bohol just for a vacation (I went here for a wedding cinematography workshop), check out Bohol Bee Farm in Panglao Island instead which 30-45 minutes drive. You can even book for a stay there because they do have beautiful rooms with a nice rustic tough to it, they also have a wonderful buffet and their dining area has a great view of the beach plus a store too and a herb garden heaven for organic lovers.
Gina’s BBQ Xpress in my opinion is now the king (or rather queen) of BBQ in Iligan City. Well, for me their BBQ is the best in town and last night (yep, last night Sept 18, 2013), me and Leia got invited for a taste test because they offered a number of new dishes on the menu. They also transferred to a new place which is just right in front of their old location (right across the street) and last night was their 2nd night opening.
Oh yeah, their pork barbeque is really super good plus their liempo (pork belly), pork chorizo, chicken pecho and grilled bangus is also a must try. Last night though was kind of a special night because they introduced two of the most favorite pinoy dishes that are especially good with beer (though I rarely drink even just a bottle these days) – Pork Sisig and Lechon Kawali. Yup these two are the new dishes on the menu plus the GBX fried chicken (fried chickens are everywhere) also.
Basically the three dishes were still on the testing stage so our (and other close friends) feedbacks were particularly important to improve their dishes. Oh, did I mention that Gina (the owner, hence the name) is actually a cousin of Leia? I guess not, so without further ado, here are the goods that filled my stomach to new width:
(btw, don’t mind my watermark – I’ll explain at the bottom of this post why it’s yobzleia 2012)
So there you have it, if you’re looking for some grilled dishes or barbeque to go with your beer or dinner then Gina’s BBQ Express would be the first place I would recommend you to check out. Oh and one more thing, I also enjoyed the cooler which is an orange juice with apple and mango tidbits.
You won’t miss Gina’s BBQ Xpress along Quezon Avenue Extension (road going to the Strip, City hall, City Hospital and Vmart) besides DTI.

This post is not a backlog, but because it’s been like a year that I posted a blog about food/food joint, I totally FORGOT that I used my outdated watermark (yobzleia2012). Somehow it didn’t register, and I just realized my mistake when I was about to finish this blog. I thought of changing the watermarks, but it seems easier for me to write a note instead than take down all the photo uploads to change all the watermarks on each photos. Yup, I almost slapped my face. Argghhhhh! Oh well, I hope you enjoy my first food blogpost in a long time!
