The hot summer sun shone relentlessly down on Bacolod, stimulating the appetites of the Bacolod food hunters.
“I want to go to Balaring! ” A Bacolod food hunter moaned.
But Balaring was too far and everyone was already very hungry so we went to another seafood restaurant: Imay’s!
The Bacolod Food hunters noticed a huge flock of parked cars outside Imay’s.
“This is a good sign, It’s a popular restaurant.” quipped Ilovepork.
As we entered we gasped in amazement. Imay’s was FULL! There were hordes of people having lunch!
Fortunately one of The Bacolod Food Hunters was a nephew of the owner and they were ushered to a vacant table.
Martin Banana took the opportunity to enjoy Imay’s interesting decorations. They were simple yet gave the impression that the diner was at the beach or at a beach-side restaurant.
Smile liked the Fish shaped lantern-like thingies hanging from the ceiling.
Imay’s is known for their seafood and their Filipino food. So the Bacolod Food hunters decided to place their orders. Despite the packed restaurant, the food arrived quickly and the Bacolod food hunters began tucking in.
We had a lot of fun at Imay’s. The food was good. It was your typical Filipino seafood restaurant. Good, simple unassuming.
This attention to quality and simplicity has resulted to success for Imay’s. Lots of people chose to dine here for lunch. and get their seafoood fix. Imay’s is a good family restaurant.
The Bacolod food hunters noted that Buto’t Balat next to Imay’s had NO customers! We thought of the possible reason.
The name Buto’t Balat sounds unusual. The Bacolod foodhunters know that Buto’t Balat refers to the skin and bones used to make fish soup. It’s a Tagalog thing.
However to the typical Negrense. It seems to convey that you will be eating skin and bones and not get your money’s worth!
