Yesterday for lunch we tried a new place. The Park, Rest and Dine Restaurant in Baras, Rizal. This is located along Marcos Highway.
The Restaurant sits atop a hill. You will climb probably around 30 steps going to the restaurant. There are no railings so be careful when going up.
We were met by a lady (who i forgot to ask for her name) who looked like the cook but who actually is the owner. A very gracious and friendly lady who showed us to a table and gave us the menu.
We ordered their Inihaw na Bangus, brocolli with shiitake mushrooms and lumpiang shanghai.
Our order arrived after 20-30 minutes. The owner was the one herself who brought the food. The restaurant is a family run place, with only the owner’s sister to serve and occasionally a helper if there are a lot of diners.
The owner chatted with us and we learned that the land was in their family for 30 years now. The size was 24 hectares! And that she used to always treat friends there but that since no more money she opened her own restaurant.
