One of the most elegant and expensive restaurants in Bacolod is Pendy’s on Lacson street. When the Bacolod Food hunters heard that they were going to Pendy’s, complaints were heard from all around.
“It’s too expensive!”
“It’s too common!”
“It’s too POSH!”
Everyone doubled over in laughter after hearing the “posh” comment. That settled it. We were going to Pendy’s.
Pendy’s is located on Lacson street and it has a reputation for being the restaurant of choice of the rich people who live in Capitolville and Santa Clara.
We entered Pendy’s and we were immediately impressed by the elegant yet home-like atmosphere of the place. You feel as if you’re dining in a very elegant sala.
We sat down and we ordered the house specialty: Callos. We also ordered an asparagus chicken sandwich (140 php) and another house specialty: Spareribs.
The food was fantastic!
The Callos was simply divine! It was stewed with lots of green peas, mushrooms, chorizo slices and potatoes which somewhat improved the taste of the soft tripe. The serving was very generous and everyone in the Bacolod Food hunters heaped praises upon the callos.
The Spareribs were also very soft and every bit as enjoyable. The serving was also very generous and came covered in a delicious sauce which goes very well with rice. Upon tasting the spare ribs, Berryblue proudly said that he would come back to Pendy’s more often from now on.
The only low part of the Pendy’s dining experience was the laughable Chicken Asparagus sandwich. It was expensive and it looked and tasted like something a third grader might have cookedup.
We enjoyed every bit of our Pendy’s dining experience (sans sandwich) and we couldn’t resist passing by their pasalubong area where matrons with enormous diamond rings and sparkling gold necklaces were doing their pasalubong shopping.
We bought some gingerbread men to torture munch over coffee at Cafe Bob’s.
Whenever you’re in Bacolod and you want to try out a “posh” restaurant, try out Pendy’s! It’s a good restaurant that may be pricey but it gives you good value for your money. You won’t be disappointed.
Just don’t order the chicken asparagus sandwich.
