#JemTravels: Dumaguete Escapade Part 2 – Food Adventure

A trip is never ever complete without trying out a place’ delicacies or famous eating spots, most especially if you are in Dumaguete.

Aside from the rich culture and picturesque scenery, the city boasts a number of delicious (and mostly affordable) places to fill one’s love for food.

Me and the girls got the chance to do just that. Say Sorry to Diet for now! 🙂

Here are the places where we dined during our trip:

Lab-as Seafood Restaurant
Dumaguete’s Painitan
Flamin’ Grill Cafe
Joe’s Chicken Inato by the Sea

Overall, the our appetite were satisfied and I myself was very delighted with the food. I specifically loved the Steak and mini burgers and Buffalo chicken wings from the Flamin’ Grill Restaurant. I also loved the hot cocoa and the egg & meatloaf bun in the Painitan sa Mercado.

If ever I get the chance to go back to Dumaguete (I actually really plan to go back and visit Silliman University), I will surely visit these places again.

How about you? Can you share any favorite dining spots in Dumaguete?

#JemEats: Lab-as Seafood Restaurant

When we visited Dumaguete last April 2016, we arrived at the city after lunch time. Our tummies are rumbling and perfectly, the first item on our agenda upon arriving is to eat at a seafood restaurant.

Lab-as Seafood Restaurant is a cool and cozy place fronting the Dumaguete City Bay.

We arrived around 2:00PM on a Saturday, thus we were the only customers during that time. But the place is usually a crowded place during lunch time and dinner time and most especially on weekends.

#JemEats: Jo’s Chicken Inato by the Sea

Joe’s Chicken Inato is a well-known chicken BBQ house here in the Philippines, specifically in the VIsayas area.

Its roots can be traced back to Dumaguete City, in the 1980’s. From then on, the brand has made its name in the food industry.

But for me though, I have known the restaurant just quiet recently, around the late 2000s. I have known Mang Inasal first before I get to taste Jo’s Chicken.

So, we had our last dinner in Dumaguete City in this restaurant.


It was convenient because it was located right beside Sea Forest Resort. After a long, tiring yet fulfilling day, we were welcomed by the warm yet breezy ambiance of the native restaurant. The area has a spacious parking lot. You will be welcomed by a chicken and a fish statue, which I find somewhat comical.

The place is filled with long tables made of wood, as well as Bangka-inspired tables. Since it’s by the sea, it gave us a good view of the night sea. There are also some trees and the landscaping of the garden was pleasing to the eyes.
