Yummy Yummy: Timeless student favorite

Yummy Yummy is a very old restaurant that caters primarily to the students of the University of Saint La Salle. Countless generations of La Sallian students have sat at their tables and eaten their food.

Martin remembers when he was in kindergarten, he would go with his father to Capitol Supermart to do their grocery shopping.  After their groceries were done, they would head to Yummy Yummy for a snack and munch on Chip ahoy! cookies that they bought.  Back then, Yummy Yummy was one of the “premiere” coffee shops in Bacolod. Nowadays all that is left of their glory are the old bamboo seats that they once used.

Capitol supermart has been replaced with Marby arcade but Yummy Yummy still exists.  The clientele has changed to primarily network gaming addicts but yummy yummy can still hold it with the best of them.  Their speciality is their fresh lumpia.

Martin hates fresh lumpia but when he was at Yummy Yummy during christmas, he was able to see a board filled with orders for fresh lumpia or lumpiang ubod.  Some orders were for 100 pieces!

What Martin likes about Yummy Yummy is their Pizza.  Back when the ninja turtles were the rage, and every kid wanted pizza, There were only three places for Pizza in Bacolod.  Shakey’s in Goldenfields, Greenwich in downtown. (Not the Greenwich today!) and Yummy Yummy.

It’s a typical Filipino-type cheapie pizza.  Nothing fancy but its taste brings back memories of childhood.

Everyone has their certain favorite food in Yummy Yummy.  Jerome, Martin’s nephew likes their hamburgers.
Martin’s friend Nakhai swears by their sisig.  However he says that it had lost much of its taste ever since Yummy Yummy swapped out its old grill for their new grill.  He claims that the years of accumulated crusted bits from frying and cooking gave Yummy Yummy sisig’s its distinct flavor.

    right, poi. the new place looks quite surgical, and lacks the character it had when it was, uhmm, dirtier…?

    i miss the old Yummy Yummy that rolled out tables and chairs al fresco at midnight.
