Harbor View Restaurant

By on October 5, 2018

Me and my brother decided to have an early dinner, he just arrived from the province and this is the only time for us to bond together. Absolutely, it is a wonderful place to feel the warm and welcome at Harbour View Restaurant. The floating restaurant has a rooftop terrace, it is such a perfect setting to view the sunset, the twinkling night view of the city lights and Manila bay. Be with my brother is a great bonding and very relaxing, our conversation, ambience and the delicious medley of flavors that food contributes equally to enjoy.
What we ordered here will highlight our old favorites since childhood. On the menu, some are completely a reminder of my own home-cooking specialty. Our courses are a mouthful of sea flavors garnished with shredded carrots and garlic but I didn’t see any parsley or lemon slices or wedges around.The taste that we want is something that exceeds our expectation.



Harbour View Restaurant
offers Filipino, Asian, International, Fresh seafood, Grill and many more.

Refreshing Mango Shake and Sweet Iced tea

The Seafood Fried Rice is pleasingly just right.



Steamed crab
, the simple presentation is just as good as it taste.
Of course, I ordered my favorite crabs that comes in 2 orders to make it just enough for the four of us, I know it would come out to be a bit costly but it’s worth the price to have at least a special food that will satisfy our cravings.

One crab is barely enough for two.and we are four. Crab prices depends on the size and gender. Female is more expensive than the male. Price of crabs in a restaurant is much higher than the average price in the market, they will weighed the crabs in front of you and it’s up to you if you agree with it.

The Garlic Prawns is quiet good and crunchy.

The Prawn Tempura is light golden brown on all sides.It is very tasty.

Baby Squid in Olive Oil is so yummy.

Sizzling Tanigue Steak is just right but soft but my brother loves the taste.

We had a wonderful dinner experience and happy night together. This is a great place if you are a seafood lover. Cheers to the good food and more delicious ideas to come! Goodnight Everyone!

Sinabalu / Piat Cagayan

By on March 9, 2018

Sinabalu is a local specialty famous in Cagayan Valley especially in Piat and neighboring towns of Tuao and Rizal. Sinabalu is a part of native cuisine, a glutinous rice wrapped with layers of treated banana leaves flavored with salt and coconut milk roasted in a bamboo tube over a low heat .The light taste is delicious that goes well with brewed coffee, hot chocolate and tea as well. With no artificial flavors, coloring and preservatives I’m sure you’ll like it. It smells really good and tastes its best when cooked over natural wood charcoal too.

Over the years, people of Cagayan developed their own unique cuisines and local specialties. Christmas, wakes, fiestas, weddings and special holidays would not be complete without the presence of Sinabalu and other local specialties like Pawa, Puto and Patupat ( all dekats fairly starts with letter P) to name a few.. It is a breakfast favorite, a mid-day snacks, and my favorite since childhood. When my brother and his wife pays a monthly visit here in Manila, they bring some local specialties from Piat, I live in the city and I don’t get to eat the same favorites all the time, this could be your favorite too. Be with friends with a cup of hot brewed coffee and slices of Sinabalu is a mellow accompaniment to any conversation.

The good quality you can buy it fresh in  Piat Public Market first hour in the morning and food stall vendors near “Basilica Minore de Nuestra Senora de Piat Church” You can find the best Sinabalu in a reputable source from Barangay Accusilian, according to my relatives from Tuao, a 2nd class Municipality in the Province of Cagayan.

The two versions; White Sinabalu which is the original one cooked with white glutinous rice and the newest version, Brown Sinabalu cooked with brown glutinous rice which is a good health benefits especially for the diabetics. It must be eaten fresh, it has a very short life and can only be freeze for 2 days and after that it deteriorates easily.

Visit my birthplace Piat Cagayan to taste all local specialties. I’m sure you’ll love it!
