Madge Cafe

1 save

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Madge is on top of everyone's local coffee list. Great, cheap native coffee, enjoyed with a sweet treat from Bacolod's famous cakeshop, Calea! ☕️🍰 Place is a bit small, especially when it's crowded (which it is most of the time). If it's not that humid, go ahead and sit al fresco 🍃

Barrio Inasal

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

My favorite Chicken Inasal (grilled chicken skewers) in the city! I always get the Pecho (chicken breast) and garlic rice combo 😋 Gets pretty packed with the family crowd at eating hours, so come before then!

Homemade ice cream for dessert! Flavors often rotate, but anything with strawberries is a winner! 🍧👅

Ramboy's

1 save

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Best liempo (pork belly) in town, in my opinion! Skin's always so crunchy and the flavor and smokiness of the meat is A-plus. We rarely eat in the restaurant because they have a super convenient to-go counter—you'll have your piece chopped up and pack in just a few minutes! Pro tip: pair their liempo with Coke (which you'll have to buy elsewhere because all their soda products are Pepsi) for the best experience 🐷👌🏼

Cafe Et Al

My go-to coffee place when I only have less than PHP 50 to spare 😂 The java is delicious, the atmosphere is peaceful (though a bit hot), and the staff are super friendly! 👍🏼

Masu Cafe

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

My favorite Indian place in Iloilo! The food is legit and affordable. The Chappati and Channa Aloo Masala combo is my favorite. 😋 We also always get the Chicken Tikka Masala (warning: spicy) and the Beef Biryani Rice.

Masskara Chicken Inasal - Iloilo

1 save

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Originally from Bacolod, Masskara Chicken is a fairly recent addition to the chicken inasal scene. It has already garnered a following though, and after having that pecho + garlic rice (ughhh, that garlic rice), I'm not at all surprised. 👅

Felicia's

Iloilo, Philippines • Recommendation • 

A famous cake shop from Bacolod! It's said to have the best Ensaymada in the country according to Sandy Daza. I personally always stick to their Chocolate Cake. In my last visit though, we got a slice of the Salted Caramel Sans Rival and it was divine! 😍
