Seafood Restos at Brgy. Balaring, Silay City

December 30, 2008 at 11:48 pm 12 comments

Balaring, a small barangay in Silay City,  is one of our family’s frequent lunchtime destination. We usually go here after the Sunday morning mass especially when the weather is breezy and the skies are clear.

Hectares of sugarcane plantations hide rows of seaside restaurants such as this. (Tama Plaza, the largest among them)

They offer mostly seafood dishes in their menu, with an exception for ‘staples’ like porkchop. (Which I usually order, to counterbalance the mostly seafood meal.)

For starters, we almost always get a mini-basin of  “talaba” (local oysters) which my father likes.

My sister’s fave is the buttered squid.

Since my mother likes to have her shrimps, veggies, and “sabaw” (soup), what can be more perfect than the “sinigang nga hipon” (shrimp in sour-based soup).

My brother likes the boneless bangus.

Here’s the porkchop, I mentioned earlier.

Sili and calamansi with sinamak and toyo is the perfect all-around sawsawan.


Here’s how to get to there:

(Brgy. Balaring, Silay City, Negros Occidental)

From Bacolod, take the National Highway going north.   Go past Silay City town proper, turn left at the Dona Teresita Jalandoni Provincial hospital. You will see a number of “Brgy. Balaring” signs, just follow them until you see rows of bamboo restaurants by the sea.

Enjoy Negros!

    Happy New Year Edz…

    We were supposed to have our high school reunion in this place in 2007. Unfortunately, we changed our venue. I have been longing to go to this place since then…

    Hopefully, when I go home by the end of January, I could find time to check this place… 🙂

    What time are the restaurants open?

    Is this accessible by many public transportations?

    Where can we get a public transportation in going there?

    Is it not far from the main road or is this place not secluded?

    Thank you!
