Travel PH | Mommy Terry's Bulaluhan - Capalonga

After travelling for eight hours from Manila to Capalonga, this eatery is just at the edge of town.  Right after your entry at the town border, you will see a big sign "Bulaluhan".  This is Mommy Terry's Bulaluhan.

Our gracious host, SirRod Gawat of the Capalonga Tourism Office gave us a great feast here.  He said in absence of fast food giants here, Mommy Terry's Bulaluhan is the best.  We couldn't agree more, its simple ambiance masks a great line up of food in this quaint establishment.  The rustic appeal of the place added more the great dining experience we had at this place.

So provincial in style, you will forget the hustle and bustle of city life.  All stood still when we sat at the long chair and table.  It maybe a bulaluhan but our feast consisted of seafood which we all welcome with open arms.  

The best seller was the Sinigang na Hipon with a slab of fish underneath.  This writer usually don't eat fish with soup but maybe due to 1) freshness of the fish and 2) great cook, I could say this dish was lovely.  Tasted sweet and some sinigang flavor to it, I had around 3 cups of rice to go with this. Balik Alindog program put on hold when you are in Camarines Norte.

Another dish worth noting was the Crab.  I forgot the name of this dish but I think it was with coconut's milk.  I was already okay with the shrimp I forgot to ask to taste this dish.  Also served was fish steak which tasted great as well.

Capalonga is roughly 300 kilometers from Manila and its a fishing village as well so, its no wonder fish and other seafoods tastes great here due to its freshness.

You may reach Capalonga via car, bus and by renting a van.  14 seater Van usually costs Php12,000 round trip.  By Car, follow waze :) and bus lines cater to this route as well.  Super Lines, Philtranco are the well know ones to go there from their Cubao Terminals.  Fare averages Php500 one way as of this writing.

I wonder if the young people had the experience of eating at provinces wherein all meals are home cooked style and nicely priced.  If you want to have a feel of this, Mommy Terry is a great host, I felt like I was with my grandmother, a spoiled grandson I became. LOL.

So come on over.
