I grew up with my lola and lolo that I used to call nanay and tatay. Tatay is from Pampangga a true blue kapampangan and cooks oh so well. Whenever he cooks it's always simot sarap. And we call it fiesta :P kahit hindi. Then my Pappi (father) is a good cook too that's why I'm very particular and maarte with food. Now I missed them so much :(
During our Puerto Princesa Getaway, Tiya Ising's is one of the restaurants in the city that we visited for a sumptuous lunch. I have a thing for Pinoy resto's most especially if the recipe is passed on from generation to generation or even simply having a great dish that is so worth it to share and taste. Travelling and food tripping is a match made in heaven. Travelling takes you to a certain place while food takes you to something even better, culture.
Tiya Ising is the sister of the grandmother of the pretty young resto owner Ms. Katrina Austria. Tiya Ising's is a Restaurant serving Filipino dishes with bits of Palawan history and culture posted on its wall. Tiya Ising's Filipino Restaurant opened November last year.
The Ambiance: 40 seating capacity resto that is also open for small functions can be arranged. The interiors were quite pleasant and relaxing, having that old familiar feeling whenever I am to visit my Nanay's place.
History Bites: While waiting for the food to be served, Why not feed your mind for a while? Looking around the resto, you can see some installations and photographs of the history and culture of Palawan.
The Food: Upon seeing the food being served in the floral plates and Clay pots, old memories came flashing inside my mind. It is so true that food brings back memories. Opps! plating pa lang yan ah,. What more if you taste it pa? Promise, Tiya Ising's food choices were all great, and so affordable.
