gloomy weather prevented me to see mt. mayon for three days . on my last day in albay, i already gave in to the idea of not being able to see the famous volcano. instead of waiting patiently at la mia taza for the clouds to clear up , i walked around legazpi city public market to find fresh pili fruits and some bags made of abaca too. inside the bag store, i overheard some local tourists raving about balay cena una restaurant. i instantly googled “balay cena una” on my phone. hmm there were few hits but with positive reviews. so there, i found myself asking the tricycle driver to bring me to old daraga district luckily he knows where balay cena una is situated.
Balay Cena Una is an old spanish-filipino house turned into a restaurant. Its interiors are impressive, each and every decorative piece are tastefully put together.

Pako salad. I have never eaten pako, curiosity made me try for this dish. it turned out to b okay for my taste.
my personal favorite: laing pasta.
this dish surely sealed my albay gastronomic adventure. i was really happy that i found my way to this resto.
