Calle Z Cafe, Tacloban, Leyte
Part 5 of the Libotero Eastern Visayas series.
After our sunset chillout session at Cafe Lucia, it was time to freshen up before dinner. So Don, Fitz, Rina, Alvin and I, all went to our hotel, Luxury Suites. Since they have already checked-in a day ahead, I registered on my own at the front desk. I was then given my room key. I’d like to thank Don for carrying my trolley bag all the way to the 3rd floor! (hihi!) We had at least an hour to freshen up and relax for a while since our call time was 8:30pm yet so I settled all my things in my cute single room then prepared myself for dinner.
At 8:30pm, we all met at the hotel lobby at the 2nd floor and left our room keys. It’s always a standard practice to leave your key at the front desk when going out so as not to misplace it. Then, we went down to the street and flagged a tricycle to bring us to our dinner destination for my first night in Tacloban, Calle Z Cafe! We had two tricycles. One for Don, Fitz and myself and another for Alvin and Rina. Fare for each passenger in Tacloban is P7, if your destination is just within five kilometers.
Located along Independencia Street, Calle Z Cafe is one of the most popular dining and hangout establishments in Tacloban.
Calle Z Cafe
Calle Z Cafe has this homey feel that made me feel comfortable the instant I stepped in their doors. Depending on your mood, you can choose to dine indoors or in their patio area.
Adding to the delightful atmosphere is their wide(st) array of music so it’s really a wonderful place to hang out, chill and just relax either with the family or with friends.
Something fun about Calle Z Cafe is their menu. It’s backside is filled with Pinoy Jokes that won’t fail to tickle your funny bones. Sir Gerry told us that everytime they need to change their menu, he always makes an effort to update the jokes on it.
Now let’s go to the real deal. The Food! Calle Z Cafe serves sumptuous food and drinks at affordable prices. Ofcourse, we would never miss the opportunity to taste their best-sellers and some other choice dishes.
Bulalo. Calle Z’s version of the popular beef soup is the best in town! The soup is so good that you actually have to close your eyes while taking a sip. The meat was oh-so-soft.
Sizzling Bangus Sisig. The perfect mix of fishy-garlicky-lemony flavors. The best thing about it is it won’t leave a fish after-taste on your mouth.
Crispy Tenga. The dish that totally made my night! Sounds very exotic and I initially thought that it was only for the adventurous but at the moment it touched my taste buds, coupled with the dipping sauce served with the dish, my whole body was awakened and suddenly craved for more! I don’t know of any restaurant that serves Crispy Tenga, so I savored the moment and digged in!
So, if ever you get to visit Tacloban, never fail to drop by Calle Z Cafe or you’ll totally be missing out. The Crispy Tenga alone is all-worth it!
