It’s been awhile. But hey, I’m well, alive and blogging from Phnom Penh again. I did plan to update the site while I was in the Philippines but a busy schedule and a crazy slow internet connection made me…well, lazy. I reasoned I was on vacation so I might as well be on full vacation..
I had a really great time there even if the weather was really dark, rainy and moody. I met up and caught up with a lot of friends and also had a great time trying out Legazpi’s new restos. One of the places we tried was Sibid-Sibid Legazpi. We were with my mom’s bestfriend and since my daughter is crazy about seafood, this is the place she recommended we try. So I’m deviating a bit for my Food Trip Friday entry and featuring a ‘Filipino restaurant’ instead of Khmer food.
a miniature sibi-sibid. A wooden banca used by fishermen..
Sibid-Sibid Legazpi has native and traditional Filipino theme with bamboo and wood decor all around the resto. It reminded me much of bahay kubos :). Their menu consisted mainly of traditional Filipino favorites like bulalo, sisig, bicol express and more seafoods.
FISH SISIG: i’ll be having some serious cravings with this one. It’s soooo crunchy and delicious. I had to stop myself from ordering a bottle of beer when I tasted this.
SHRIMP ADOBADO: the sauce. finger lickin’ good. The kiddo went a little nuts with this. She wanted a second helping of rice coz of this.
Mains were priced around P150-P190 per order but the servings were big. Enough for 3-4 persons. And the taste, sooooo deliciously good. We couldn’t help ourselves and bef
ore the meal was halfway, we were eating with our hands hahaha.. All in all, Sibid Sibid is a great place to dine with family and friends. I find it a good value for money, sure it might cost a lot more than you’re typical fastfood fare but its all more worth it.
CALAMARES: very good. I did wish though that’s they’d have something a little more spicy and exotic for sauce. But this was great and a must try.
CAMARON: crunchy and the sauce perfect for it.
FRESH COCONUT: the perfect drink to go with it all
I’ll be posting more stuff about our short Bicol trip and oh, after we got back to Phnom Penh two days ago, Hi-ace dragged us for a ‘drive’ which ended up with us exploring Kep and Kampot, Cambodia. I’ll be featuring picturesque Kampot photos soon.
