Finally... Arvic got the chance to eat at the Isdaan (in Gerona, Tarlac). I wanted him to try it out because I really think it's unique and a nice place to hang-out with family and friends. Really relaxing... When we got there though, it was raining already. But it's all good. We still had fun.
At the entrance, you'll be greeted by our friendly neighborhood (statue) guard. He'll be offering you a newspaper too.
I love the native feel of the place. The whole setup revolved on the idea of Thailand-meets-Philippines. Buddha's here and there and a few Pinoy Icons Statues too (e.g. Ninoy, Cardinal Sin, Cory Aquino etc).
And because the place was called "Isdaan" , you just really expect to see a lot of fishes right?
One of the place's attraction too is the Tacsiyapo ('Shame on You') wall. Here, you're allowed to throw/smash a cup, plate, or even a big TV at the wall to release anger. We weren't able to try it out because of the rain plus we weren't really willing to spend money to throw things on a wall. But it was another unique idea I must say.
Another gimik is the San Kilo Bridge. The idea is that one should cross the bridge with one pail of water in hand. The price? If you do complete the test, you get a kilo of fish for free. :)
To add to the entertainment.. Singing waiters were present too and were always ready for the cameras.
As for the food.. we had lots! But sad to say.. I was only able to take a pic of one dish. Yes... we were that hungry already.
Isdaan is owned and operated by BARRIO FIESTA GROUP OF RESTAURANTS so expect the same type of delicious food from Barrio Fiesta at this place.
