Orange Claw in The Strip, Iligan City

When we were having coffee in Dark Roast in Iligan City we spotted the Orange Claw and we were curious on what it can offer. From the outside the ambience seems very nice so when an opportunity to have dinner with family occured we decided to try Orange Claw.

The Orange Claw is located at The Strip in Iligan City. This is also where Calda Pizza is located.

We waited inside The Strip for the others to arrive. When we received the message that they were near we proceeded to walk to Orange Claw. We passed by Delecta which was packed with people dining, when we entered Orange Claw there were not much people. We can’t help but ask why. Continue reading Orange Claw in The Strip, Iligan City

Cupcakes and Coffee at Tedts’ Diner in Iligan City, Philippines

That day we were not sure where we would go to sit down and spend time. We were planning to head to Gaisano Mall, but when we passed by Tedts Diner we decided to quickly try this place out due to friends highly recommending this place.

Spicy Lechon at the Weekend Night Market of Iligan City, Philippines

I knew that Iligan’s Lechon is one of the best in the country as we have had many lechon delivered to our house in Manila that was cooked on the same day in Iligan City. The effort and the price is worth it just to taste the deliciousness of Iligan’s Lechon in family and friends gatherings.

When I went to Iligan my friends told me that I should try the Weekend Night Market. At the Weekend Night Market I should try the Spicy Lechon.

Since I was visiting Iligan, my uncle invited me to have dinner at B. Bu. Q. Barbecue Haus. I knew Iligan knows how to cook up good food and even when we were kids I’ve already loved the taste of barbecue¬†being sold on the side streets of Iligan City.

Seafood Pasta

The Seafood Pasta was good. I was very glad that the shrimps and mussels were visible. The amount was enough for someone who’s looking for a light dinner. The taste was how a seafood pasta should be. A good mix of spices, herbs, oil, pasta, tomato sauce and seafood.

The bread was a bit over-toasted for my taste but it was still a good complement to the seafood pasta. Continue reading The Fruh Cafe in Tibanga, Iligan City, Philippines
