Dining experience

comfortable indoor dining area taytay tiangge

While the food outlets on the ground floor have an indoor-outdoor dining setup (covered but facing the street), the second floor is better for those who want to hide from the sun. There are wall fans and a bit more selection in terms of the food. The toilets are also located on the second floor.

I took inspiration from the other tables nearby and ordered the squid with rice because it looked so good. Thankfully, it tasted as good as it looked so there were no regrets. They even provided scissors so you could easily cut up the squid.

My family also tried the Pork Sinigang, Bangus and Pork Sisig and Breaded Fried Chicken Fillet from the other stalls.

We all loved the Halo Halo from Halovers, which claimed to be a trending halo-halo from Mindanao. We liked how creamy it was and the fineness of the ice used.

We also enjoyed the Honey Lemonade, Cucumber Lemonade and Mango Shake.
