We just went to the most beautiful Hotel and Restaurant on Negros Island! Primos Restaurant (Primos Bacolod / BC Smokehouse ) and Roost Hotel Bacolod is a Rainforest themed restaurant and Hotel!
There’s a large interior Rainforest with huge glass windows! Take your pick – Sit by the interior and watch the plants and fish🐠 or sit with a view of BS Aquino street! Super relaxing!
🦆 There’s gorgeous handpainted MURALS of birds found on Negros island all over the hotel and restaurant! Definitely not AESTHETIC because it is EDUCATIONAL and real ART! SUPER duper nice! 🦇🦇🦇
The food is great too! We’ve previously written about BC smokehouse when they were just a takeout place during the pandemic. Staff and service is excellent!
This is the interior of Primos, Bacolod’s most beautiful restaurant!
This resto and roost hotel is rainforest themed featuring large glass windows looking into an interior “rainforest” and unto the busy BS Aquino street.
Primos is also the site of BC smokehouse who we’ve written about in the past.
They have excellent meals and they specialize in smoked meat.
Choose where to sit in Primos. You can sit with a view of the rainforest or a view of the street. Either place you sit, it is super nice.
Another view of Primos restaurant this time looking towards the exit.
Dotted all throughout the hotel are fantastic murals of birds and plants NATIVE to negros island. This masterpiece of a Talarak (hornbill) perching on a lanzones tree can be seen in Primos restaurant!
This is extremely well executed and reminds us of an Audobon Birds plate. We love Roost Hotel and Primos for showcasing the natural flora and fauna of Negros Island!
For those who want to get some work done, there is actually a study/mini coworking area where you can work while looking out at the rainforest and pool. Super nice.
The view from the study area.
Time to eat! We started with an appetizer of poori!
Appetizers at Primos restaurant are fantastic! We are so excited that they have poori! (Primos spells it as puri). This is an Indian streetfood that is commonly filled with all sorts of stuff. It’s basically a fried potato pocket. It’s a snack, meant to be consumed in one bite. This is smoked blue marlin flakes puri.
We have never had only four puri before. Usually in India we can put away 20-30 pooris. This is very good but people who are not accustomed to having poori might want a different appetizer. We suggest for newcomers to try Primo’s excellent pulled pork Bao Buns.
These smoked pulled pork bao are so addicting. You can’t just have one!
Loaded fries with smoked angus brisket chunks, Homemade pickled Jalapeno peppers, potato wedges and a lot of other things. Super good and filling!
The staff recommended the drinks and we had a Lemonade, a Lemon granita and an orange granita not pictured. Very good drinks, non alcoholic.
This is their chow Mein noodles with smoked pork, The noodles are nice and firm and the smoky flavor of the pork really makes the dish super good. This dish is a little sweetish but not overly so.
Smoked rib Rice meal with Java rice. Super tender, melt in your mouth.
If you like Japanese curry, this delicious, soft and tender beef belly and shank curry will be right up your alley. Comes with fried potatoes, white rice and carrots. Yummy!
At this point we were so hungry and everyone was telling me to finish taking pictures! This is Primos Pork tonkatsu Curry.
The angle is all wrong because everyone was HANGRY. The aroma of the food was tantalizing!
Our epic meal of Chow mein, Smoked Rib rice meal, Beef Belly and Shank Curry, Pork Tonkatsu curry. These came with side dishes of japanese pickles.
