If you’re hungry when visiting Don Salvador Benedicto you may have noticed the high prices at some roadside cafes. Skip the high priced tourist traps and head to Cafe La Guada where the food is a bit cheaper. Cafe La Guada offers good quality food and generous portions.
Cafe La Guada is located on the main highway of Don Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental. They’re just before the “touristy” area and they also have a nice, albeit simpler view.
The cafe area also has several cottages and even a pool on their grounds. You can opt to have your meals in one of the cottages. They also have accomodation for overnight stays.
Here’s the reason why we love Cafe La Guada. The prices are significantly cheaper than other resorts but the quality and presentation is top notch. Flowers and herbs decorate their dishes. Presentation is a definite win. We would spend all day in Don Salvador Benedicto and then make the drive back down to Cafe La Guada.
There are a lot of traditional highland dishes being served in Don Salvador Benedicto and Cafe La Guada has some of them on the menu. There’s Asian swamp eel and Fried frogs for just 200 pesos.
We were feeling adventurous, so we got a dish of fried frogs. To our surprise the dish came with four WHOLE breaded frogs served on a bed of chicharon strings and garnished with mint, onion and blue tarnate.
That’s a lot of frogs. Lol. We managed to nibble a leg – it tasted just like chicken wings. Nibbling on the head itself is another story.
