We had to wait around for it. We had to wait a extensive time. But because August the whispers bought denser – the new Thai/Vietnamese restaurant in Yumbing will shortly open. Last Saturday evening the rumors became true: guerrera – the new culinary paradise in Camiguin softly opened its doorways.
The new cafe rises in the middle of a rice paddy near the sea in Yumbing (Camiguin). The vivid orange shade gently harmonizes with the young and fresh new inexperienced of the rising rice vegetation. With its substantial glass fronts the restaurant encourages an ethereal mild impact. The orange coloration is also dominant in the night time. The orange paper lampshades together with the dim brown wooden make you sense cosy.
When you enter the restaurant you instantly get attracted by the open up kitchen. On the one hand this openness emphasizes their slogan “Fine Asian Streetfood”. On the other hand some of the ideal dining establishments in the Philippines permit their friends to see how they do. I consider of Alfredo Honegger’s Swiss Italian cafe in Cordova or the Werdenberg places to eat in Legazpi village in Makati.
A uncomplicated but exceptionally purposeful kitchen area. This functionality can also be noticed with the kitchen staff members. With the “cheffe” Carmel in the middle of the chaotic get the job done, everyone has his certain tasks with enough house for not to collide with the other folks.

Anything is clean! Or as they say: We cook dinner what the fisherman may perhaps have caught. (sea is 30 ft absent) and what is new from our backyard and farm. ( 15 ft away). This are not empty text. When you stroll all around the restaurant you see their in depth gardens total with fresh vegetables and herbs.

Due to the fact of the freshness of all the ingredients, the menus are fully seasonal. Chicken, pork and beef are offered all calendar year, but many crops and almost all fish and other marine delights are only available in the course of a certain year. Do not count on to consume canned or frozen foods.
We certainly liked our food. And there is a unanimous verdict of all our good friends we achieved there last Saturday: We shall arrive back once more and yet again! Have a appear and click on on the shots to boost your urge for food.

Appear at the “architecture” of the presentation of these culinary delights. You actually initial take in with your eyes, then with your nose and at last your palate savours the whole. It’s great! A further shock had been the excellent of the services. All orders had been customized, and after about ten (10) minutes the four of us have been served inside just one moment. Where in the Philippines can you find such a excellent timing. Only a single out of the four servings was a bit little, a next serving was presented right away and arrived within just minutes.
How to come across the restaurant?
We duplicate their own description from their web site …
Consider the most important road to Yumbing and switch in direction of the sea (opposite the mountain) when you see the symptoms for Guerrera or Paras vacation resort or Luna’s ristorante (a pleasant italian location on the principal highway). At the time you attain the sea, change correct and consider the highway as far as it goes (about 300 meters) and then enter the primary gate wherever the parking whole lot is. Very straightforward. The 2nd time.
Their website http://guerrera.ph/ is value a check out. It is total of fantastic humour and has insider secrets we to not expose right here.

The opening past Saturday was pretty much secretive. You desired to know mates who experienced listened to of the opening by their friend’s mates. With the four of us we counted 11 company all-around 7 p.m. The restaurant can accommodate about 50 guests. Will they be able to maintain the quality and pace of services and of system the quality of the meals? We think so. We will test all over again this Thursday at evening meal time …
