Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta

A dinner at Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta was what we had a couple of weeks ago. I have a busy man for a husband and we have to make sure we take time out to go out once in a while and just leave the grind for just a few hours.  This time the invite came from Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta.  And as the name suggests, it was a feast through and through. Another addition to our growing list of favorite hangout places where we can spend some quality time together. 🙂

For the most part, I love the whole concept of Ibayo.  A contemporary take of the more classic Barrio Fiesta as we know it.

Ibayo transforms from a casual dining atmosphere to a “chillax” place that escalates into an ultimate night-out for family and friends.

Check out the well designed contemporary interior.

Ibayo Firesticks. My favorite Ibayo appetizer. While some would prefer their mini egg rolls filled with jalapeno and cheese a little more hot, I’d say this one is just right for me. I could eat a whole bunch if there was not anything else left on the table.    There were a handful of other appetizers to try out: Green Mango Salad, Chicharon Bulaklak, Kilawin Tanigue (our favorite which we forgot to order that night), et. al.

Watermelon fruit shake, P105

Ginataang Kuhol

Ibayo White Adobo, P280

This White Adobo is Ibayo’s twist  on Philippine’s most popular dish. Chicken and Pork Adobo made without soy sauce. I didn’t exactly know what to expect as I was about to dig in to this dish.  Suffice it to say, it made it to my list of favorites for the night.  A must try!

Ibayo Crispy Catfish, P199

Deep fried catfish with a twist. Ibayo serves it with their special Barrio Fiesta Bagoong and green mango salad. Yumm!

Kare-kare, P220 (regular) | P350 (family)

A Pinoy favorite! Tender oxtail and tripe stewed in creamy peanut sauce.

Crispy Pata, P480

What’s a trip to Barrio Fiesta without a sampling heap of their famous Crispy Pata? Unheard of, right? An indulgence through and through, I know.  Deep fried pork knuckle at its best.

Bicol Express, P160

Bulalo Steak, 280

Tender beef shank served on a sizzling platter served with buttered veggies and gravy.  When they said tender, they were not kidding. And for its price, it’s really a steal.  The serving is huge enough to feed two. 🙂


Turon ala Mode, P75

Banana fritters  with langka, served with ice cream
