Bicol Day 1: Small Talk Cafe, Legazpi, Albay

After an 11 hr. drive from Manila, we finally reached Legazpi, Albay! Since it’s already 12:50pm, we headed straight to Small Talk Cafe to take our lunch. I found this resto in one of my google searches and their Laing pasta caught my interest to try it!

They’re famous for serving pasta with a local twist! The entrance is quite small but they have a spacious dining space. The only problem is the parking if there are a lot of diners.

Bicol Express Pasta – Alamang, sili and gata sauteed in garlic and pasta.

I so love Bicol Express so this one’s mine. It’s their version of spaghetti Al oglio but I like it more if they’ll add more meat.

Their version of ravioli. Sorry, don’t like tuna sauce.
