After our Paguriran Island tandem ride, we hiked Kawa-Kawa Hill Nature Park for a quick visit. I observed that there has been more of everything.. more rest stops, more vendors, more visitors, more lights, more things to do, more sights to see.. more FUN too, I hope. They gotta watch out not to overdo the development as it might get too “crowded” at some point.
Anyway, we enjoyed the mini-trek and agreed to have dinner at La Terraza Restaurant at the base of the hill since we were starving. Unfortunately, the restaurant is closed because it is their Christmas Party.
The following morning, Christmas Day, I took my girlfriend and nephew for a short spin in Legazpi City.
I was talking to my nephew the whole time we’re on the road. He’s in Kinder and he can easily read the plate numbers of the vehicles in front of us. Does that mean I was tailgating too close and passing a lot of cars? Nah! He’s just an excellent reader!
When we got back to Ligao City, we paid La Terraza another visit.
La Terraza is the Spanish translation of “The Terrace” or “The View Deck”. It is a restaurant cum function hall situated at the Kawakawa Hill, la Terraza is aptly named.
Open her capiz windows and you will be greeted with the picture perfect view of the plains of the city of Ligao, the greeneries of Mount Masaraga, and the perfection that is Mount Mayon. This together with the backdrop of the famous hill-without-a-hilltop, Kawakawa and the beautiful Divine Mercy Church on its left side makes la Terraza truly a beautiful place to dine in and as a venue for special occasions.
Her cuisine is a beloved mix of American, European, Asian, Filipino, and local Bicolano. Outstandingly however, she takes pride in being “The Home of Authentic Bicolano Cuisine” aiming to be the must-eat-at Bicolano restaurant in Bicol for tourists, local and foreign.
I’m not a food blogger, so I’ll leave it up to you to try the dining experience yourself.
