Food Trip Friday: Pasta Mayon at Small Talk Cafe


Blog Meme, Food Trip Friday, Philippines / Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Another Food Trip Friday entry featuring Filipino food.

Here’s from one of my favorite resto’s in Legazpi City, Philippines – Small Talk Cafe. I missed the food there so this was one of my stops with some friends during my two-week Pinas vacation.

I had Pasta Mayon. I know it looks like your ordinary lasagna dish but believe me this one is definitely unique. Ravioli pasta stuffed with creamy pinangat (laing leaves cooked with coconut cream) and topped with oh so yummy tuna sauce. I think ‘yummy’ and delicious would be an understatement for this dish.

I also wish I had more room for more food. But I just had heavy lunch and the pasta was the only thing I could accommodate. The Laing/Pinangat Pasta and the Bicol Express Pasta and Pili Pasta, Laing Pizza looked interesting too. I guess, I just have to make sure I’m really hungry when I go there again.

Small Talk cafe has a really cozy ambiance (think vintage-retro!) and features some totally unique food. A lot of the food in their menu are a must try. If you’re ever in Legazpi City, visit this place. Located in Albay District very near Divine Word College.

And oh, thanks Yese for the pics (which makes me think what a lousy blogger I make, I always seem to forget the cam whenever I need it LOL) and Khenn, thanks for the yummy treat :)). Miss you guys and see sometime soon again.

  3. Sounds yummy. Just down the road in Guinobatan, there’s a little street hawker who makes Almondegas. Chilli peppers stuffed with meat and seafood then deep fired. These awesome little bal;ls of tasty fun are so good – i ate 20 in one sitting.

    Bicol Express is probably my favourite Filo dish. Yay for Bicolano Cuisine
