Balinsasayaw Restaurant in Silang, Cavite

July 9, 2010, my wife and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary with a lunch at Balinsasayaw Cottage Restaurants in Silang, Cavite. But before finally deciding to have our lunch there, we first checked two other restaurants here in Tagaytay. One is the newly established shabu-shabu restaurant named Seferino’s. The place is great but lacked the dining areas itself japanese ambiance I was expecting for a japanese restaurant. But, of course, that was not what made not to eat there. It was their menu. I don’t think a batch of vegestables and a few meat and dumplings for about 600 pesos per person would be reasonable. I was hoping there would be a buffet or at least they’d let us choose what goes in our pots.

Next we tried the Bali along Aguinaldo hi-way. The small nipa huts gave it a little ambiance of Leslie’s except that they menu is presented the way small-scale turo-turo and carinderias display what they have for a day. Go figure how it looked like.

So we finally decided to go to Balinsasayaw. It was actually my first time to be there but not for my wife. The way the dining cottages were scattered on a hill-like elevation got me excited. But of course, I can’t be so romantic for we have a chapperon with us – my wife is so many months pregnant so she can no longer drive and I also can’t drive because I really cant drive so we had to take my wife’s cousin to drive for us. Cheers!

These are the birdcage-like cottages. They are covered with mosquito nets even though there’s hardly a mosquito outside. I thought it’s just the management’s idea to make them look like bird cages without making the patrons feel like they’re in actual bird cages because the restaurant was actually named after a bird with a very nutritious saliva.

Crispy Pata @ Balinsasayaw Restaurant

We had crispy pata, grilled tuna belly, ensaladang talong, pineapple rice and their Sweet Chili Crab special (the one in the tarpaulin outside). I didn’t really like the crab because the chili sauce tasted strongly like Jufran but the rest of the dishes tasted great. But what really got my attention was their Kimchi appetizer. So far, I only had tasted great kimchi in the Philippines – one from my wife’s previous Korean boss and this. Among all the restaurants offering kimchi here in the Philippines, so far this kimchi from Balinsasayaw Restaurant is the only one that met my standard when it comes to kimchi.

It was so great I had to make another order for take-out.

I would highly recommend the Balinsasayaw Restaurant in Silang, Cavite to anyone who would love to eat great food but doesn’t want to feel they’re being robbed when the bill comes out. All those food in the photos only cost us PHP 2,100.00. The kimchi is only PHP 65.00 per serving.

Disclaimer: Husbands are not foodies, they just love to eat. It means I know the taste of the kimchi that I would love but that doesn’t make me a kimchi expert.
