Food Trippin' in Embarcadero

Night Life. Cebu has one, Davao has one, Manila has one and now Bicol has one with Embarcadero de Legazpi.

Embarcadero, which literally means where the ship embarks, is a waterfront, all-activity place located at the harbor area of Legazpi City adjacent to the Sleeping Lion Hill. At the day, it offers a stunning view of the mighty Mayon Volcano as well as Legaspi's cityscape to the north and the Albay Gulf to the east.

But the place literally comes alive at night specially with the towering presence of30-meter tall lighthouse that could become one of the iconic symbols of Legazpi. There are lots of watering hole in the place for those who want to spend the night in the merry mix of beer, pulutan and music.

On the family side, the place has carousels, trains and rides for the kids, shopping place for mom and a hang-out place for just about anybody. As for me, enjoying the night view with San Mig Light on hand and these pulutan are more than enough for me:

Everchanging Lights of the Tower


Grilled Tuna Belly

Grilled Squid

Tokwa at Baboy

Sizzling Pork Sisig

Kinilaw na Pusit

Local Bands on the Background

More of Albay in my next posts.
