OT: Lantaw in Cordova

Pin It Now!
On a cold Sunday afternoon (after my cousin's garden wedding) while watching Discovery Channel in Kasadya Cordova, I suddenly got hungry and decided to take my cousin (and her boyfriend) to Lantaw which was just a few minutes away from Kasadya.

You can find Lantaw at Day-as Wharf in Cordova. We discovered Lantaw when the boyfriend and I went shooting at Day-as during sunset (for my photography class' homework). We just looked at Lantaw though, and took pictures of the place. The restaurant is made entirely of bamboo and cogon. It reminds me of our little hut in Negros.

Their service is really nice. When you enter the restaurant you'll be greeted warmly by their receptionist in Cebuano. The rest of the crew were courteous and helpful. They were ready to assist you whenever you need help.

What I like about Lantaw is they have really nice interiors. They have the front end of the jeepney peeking near their cash register which is really cool. You can pose in front if you want. They also have another part of the restaurant which had couches and tables where you can lounge while eating. Unfortunately, it was raining that day so they had to close that part and stack the couches. What was really interesting in Lantaw is that they serve mayo bottles as water glasses. It's really cool and environment friendly.

this is the glass.

lechon kawali (P185)

pinakbet (P210)

adobong kangkong (P80)
sisig (P130)
We got adobong kangkong, pinakbet, sisig, lechon kawali and a couple of drinks to top that rainy afternoon. The price for their food were reasonable. Most of their serving were good for two to three persons. The lechon kawali was a bit small, though even for its price. This was why we added the sisig to our table.

I loved everything that they served in Lantaw. Everything was cooked properly and had a great taste. My adobong kankong was really yummy. I couldn't find anything to say about the taste. The sisig and the lechon kawala lacked the kick and the spiciness that we wanted. These were also good, but it wasn't spicy enough for us.

When we were about to head home, our male companions came out happy and grinning from the male toilet. We had to ask why. They said there were photos of funny store names and errors posted in their toilet. We went to the women's too, but found none. So the boyfriend took photos and shared it to us. We ended up smiling from ear to ear while going through the different photos.

some of their funny photos. there are too many of these.
My cousin and I are planning to head there again soon when the weather's right so we can watch the sunset and city lights from Lantaw. It was just a bit disappointing that the weather wasn't really cooperating with us that day. Nevertheless, it was a really nice experience.

Lantaw is a bit far from the city which makes it a really nice restaurant to unwind. If you plan on commuting to Lantaw, just ride a jeepney to Cordova and ask the driver to stop you at Poblacion in Cordova. Once you see a pedicab, ask him to get you to Day-as Wharf. You have to pay P1 per person when you get to the wharf.
