Isla pala pala located at the Triangle in Shopping is one of the newest and most interesting restaurants that Bacolod has to offer its visitors. It is located in a triangular shaped shopping area that locals have fondly nicknamed the “Triangle”
The inside of Isla pala pala makes use of natural lighting during the day. Paintings and native art hang from the walls and strips of white cloth adorn the ceilings along with several very “special”decorations that make visiting Isla pala-pala a must visit on anyone’s list.
These decorations are toys and sculptures made from bits of plastic, discarded bottles and parts of other discarded toys! They caught our attention and we spent so much time in the restaurant looking at them and marveling at how they were made, we didn’t notice that the food had already arrived! It seemed like we were in Sid’s room with the mutant toys from Toy story!
One of the most fantastic pieces is a mannequin made from wood and pieces of dolls. Creepy/disturbing? or strangely cute?
The food finally arrived. We had ordered typical Filipino food. The food was ok lang. The veggies were very fresh especially the ones used in the kinilaw and the chopsuey. Service was great – bordering on obsessive compulsive as our over zealous waiter was jumping about, pouring drinks. At one point he even started cleaning up a minor spill on the table while we were dining. He also noticed Martin having difficulty reaching for the plate of crispy pata and rushed forward to place it within reach all without being asked to. Wow! What great service.
Isla pala pala is awesome! Take your kids along to see the mutant toys especially after they’ve seen Toy Story!
