Food Trip: Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon

Kamayan sa Palaisdaan - Tayabas, Quezon
After climbing more or less 300 steps in Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, we heard our stomach rumble so we decided to have our early dinner at Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon, a floating restaurant along the highway going to Lucban, Quezon. We pass by this restaurant on our way to the Shrine from Lipa City. The restaurant, which is just a few minutes away from the Shrine, features a dining experience (with your bare hands, if you so desire) in a floating nipa hut.

Here, we ordered for grilled tuna belly, grilled eggplant with salted eggs, ginataang suso at pako (snails with ferns in coconut milk), garlic fried rice and a pitcher of iced tea. My friend, who is expecting ginataang kuhol as he thought it's the same, had a hard time sucking the snail out of its shell. Out of frustrations, he joked about it and said that maybe, the cook had included the empty shells from the other diners..hehe!

ginataang suso at pako (snails with ferns, in coco milk) - PhP120
grilled tuna belly - PhP250
An order of this tuna belly is large enough to serve two people, could serve three if ordered with other dishes, and it's price of PhP250 is quite reasonable considering its size, cheaper actually if you compared it with other restaurant serving the same dish.

grilled eggplant with salted eggs - PhP60
buco halo-halo - PhP120
For dessert, we ordered this buco halo-halo. It's the same halo-halo we Pinoys love except that it's served on a young coconut, with its meat included. And I love it! I love all of its ingredients especially the leche flan and halaya as well as the young coconut meat. Others may find it very sweet, and actually it is, but I still love it, so creamy and tasty, tho a bit pricey! :(
