There is more to Pagsanjan Laguna than the Pagsanjan falls and shooting rapids... there is of course Pagsanjan's delectable cuisine.
Located just a few meters away Pagsanjan town's century old arch gate is Calle Arco restaurant. I was first drawn to this restaurant from recommendations from TripAdvisor ~ me and my foodie family wanted a taste of their menu.
The Pagsanjan Arch is difficult to miss.
Calle Arco is an old house turned restaurant.
An old piano sits by the main entrance. A lady was playing wonderful music the night we dined in ~ setting the perfect ambience (you easily forget that the restaurant sits on a busy road and traffic can be a bit hellish as times.
There were numerous seating options, we decided on a inside seating in the comfort of an air-conditioning.
We were ushered into a pink room decorated differently from the main seating area. The pink room is styled like a European café as compared to an antique mansion feel outside.
We ordered Tortang Talong (P180)
Crispy Chicken Garlic (P250)
Pancit Habhab (P150)
Halo-halo with ice cream (P95)
- All our orders are spot on. We could have ordered more, but were too full to try all of the house specialties. If you are not hungry and just passing by, I suggest a serving of their special halo-halo! It is topped with the tastiest leche flan ever....
- Price is really affordable, with huge servings meant for sharing.
- Service is fast and crew are accommodating.
- Recommended for travelling families and barkadas who are really hungry :P.
A clear thumbs up for Calle Arco from MamaSpeaks!
