Woo hoo! 🙂
Finally, there’s a new restaurant in Samal Island. I am so happy because we are there most of the time. And lunch is always a problem for us since there are not many options when you’re in the southern part. . .
So when we saw that Farmer’s Resto and Grill opened already, boy was I glad!
The restaurant was already full when we came in. It’s a good thing that their airconditioned room wasn’t. So that’s where John and I went together with some family members and a friend.
The owners were locals but their chef isn’t. He is from Davao and he used to work for a famous restaurant – Antonio’s Grill.
We ordered beef steak, fried chicken, pinakbet and bihon guisado.
I like the gravy like sauce on the beef steak, The fried chicken had a taste of garlic seasoning. And their pinakbet was really good. 🙂 Pinakbet , by the way, is a local dish that comprises several vegetables with fish paste and some tiny chicharon slices.
Each order can serve 3-4 people. So the prices came out cheap. We paid less than Php1,000.00 pesos. And that included rice and soft drinks for 6 people. Remember, we ordered 4 viands.
Not bad right? 🙂
The location is very convenient because it’s just along the highway in Penaplata, Island Garden City of Samal. Past Central Warehouse Club.
So if you’re staying at the beach resorts nearby and doesn’t want to eat there anymore, this can be a good option for you.
Or if you’re like us who go to Samal on business always, then this place is really a welcome addition to the local economy.
Yes, they’re not done with the finishing of the building yet but their food will fill you in. 🙂 Per conversation with the owners, they had to open ahead of schedule because they were already getting orders even when the building was still being constructed.
To Farmer’s Restaurant – congratulations! 🙂
