Gerarda’s Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

Our second time at this absolute cracker of a restaurant. It happened by chance today though as we were actually scheduled to go to Golden Cowrie, another of my favourites, but found that sadly this has now closed down and is now only located in Boracay. Anyways, their loss is our gain, as we have a superb meal at Gerarda’s Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines. As in, SUPERB! Our server was a chap called Jade, yep not too far from Jude I hear you shout. And man this guy was good. Gerarda’s be proud of this guy, as much as you should be about your food. He is a major asset for you, and made our experience very special!

Have a look HERE for our first experience of Gerarda’s Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines.

It might be well worth a booking, as it gets seriously busy. They have two places, but tonight we went to; 30 J.S Torralba Street, Tagbilaran City, 6300, Bohol, Tagbilaran City, Bohol. Give them a call at (038) 412 3044 – you might need a +63 and drop the zero, if you are traveling.

It’s a cracking restaurant. Would you think this was smack bang in the middle of the city centre of Bohol’s capital city, Tagbilaran? Nope, me neither. But is is. It has such a warm family feel to it, you really cannot help but feel welcome when you walk in.It’s top notch!

Up first is the silky smooth, super flavoursome corn soup. It’s a monster, so this is for family sharing. Crunchy fresh vegetables and just a beautiful taste. I whacked in a few chopped chili padi to get some spice going too, oh yeah baby!

This is an air dried, deep fried beef rib dish. In the middle of the dish is a little dipping vial of vinegar. I tell you what, is that a match made in heaven or what! OMG this is so very good. Drop the cutlery and get stuck in with your hands, it’s caveman time! So good!

Bicol Express up now. They do call this out on the menu that this is 3 chili rating hot, and boy oh boy they do not disappoint. Whoa boy this is up there on that scale. Phewy. Nose running, and bum getting nervous re tomorrow, but still you cannot help yourself to devour more and more and more of this coconut cream, super spicy pork belly curry. It is an absolute cracker! A must have here!

Dinakdakan up now. I think my ultimate favourite tonight. Chosen by Jimboy following a great recommendation from one of his mates that has tried it before. Superb choice Jimboy. Wow. Is it a salad? Is it a hot dish? Are they green peppers? So many questions. First bite and BOOM!!!! It’s a hybrid. They are actually green tomatoes. Crunchy, crispy deep fried pork belly and fresh chopped red onion. All covered in a sweet and savoury, deep flavoursome cream of coconut sauce. Wow! Death-row food this. Something I will order every single time I come back. This is a MUST folks. So, so, so good!

The only one I didn’t quite get. We did ask to tone it down so no chili, which sort of made it, an I don’t know what dish. Our BAD Gerarda’s. Next time, we promise not to fiddle. We were just thinking of the kids being able to consume that was all!

This is the Pancit Canton. I didn’t get in to this as it is prawn and squid seafood noodle with special sauce. BUT, boy did the rest of the gang. This dish disappeared from the bowl. Clearly a good sign. WOW. And how good does it look too folks!
