After visiting the Bontoc Museum, we headed to Tchayapan’s Restaurant to have lunch. The restaurant is Bontoc’s best and biggest restaurant according to Violet – the tour operator / guide.
I didn’t expect too much from the food that they served but after checking their menu, I think their food is pretty much safe though it may not be for people with adventurous palate.
Forgive me but whenever I’m out of town, I prefer to eat something unfamiliar – something that I can’t normally find in Manila.
I ordered Tchayapan’s Rice, Its Bontoc’s version of Lechon Kawali with buttered fresh and crunchy vegetables on the side while my group mates ordered Fried Chicken rice – medium portion of crispy fried chicken with mixed vegetables and steamed rice.
We also had our lunch in Tchayapan’s Restaurant on our way back to Manila and that time, I ordered Sweet and Sour pork rice – a crispy fried pork in sweet and sour sauce. Their set of food may not have met my expectations but It I will still recommend it specially for budget travelers who want to visit the highlands on a shoestring budget.
