Where to Eat in Albay: La Terraza Cafe, Ligao City

“Champion” was all that my companion can say when he took the final bite of his Pulled Pork Empanada during our recent meryenda session at La Terraza Cafe in Ligao City.


The first time we dined here was during a tour of Albay couchsurfing friends. We have “Kawa-kawa Nature Park” in our itinerary and one suggested that we can just have our lunch at this restaurant. Back then we placed our orders first before we started our steep climb to reach “Kawa-kawa” ¬†and appreciate the view. After a photos and selfies, we descended to our lunch.

It was consist of Sisig Pancit, Tinutungan na Manok, Lumpiang Shanghai, Pinangat and Rice. The Sisig Pancit caught my fancy back then, it was a bit sweet and salty and it has crunchy sisig bits as toppings.

So when an opportunity gave me a chance to dine there once again, I easily gave in. After a morning session of lectures in Naga City, my two body guards if they would like to try Sisig Pancit for meryenda and they readily agreed. We were the only customers that afternoon and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that an order of the coveted noodle is only P100 and it is already good for 3! I also ordered their Pulled Pork Empanda because it has a “bestseller” seal on the menu. And it was indeed a bestseller!


The pastry was hot and crisp. While the pulled pork taste like asado or adobo, I really don’t know but it taste divine! I ordered two more to take home to my tot and ate lo.


For a price of P200, we were able to feast on a hearty meryenda that was truly worth the detour. La Terraza Cafe and Restaurant is located near “Kawa-kawa Nature Park” in Ligao City.
