We had passed by an interesting looking Restaurant a number of times in the past but we had never stopped there. Well, tonight we did. Wow!
JIan’s looks like a small restaurant but once you go inside, you will see that is actually large. It is a Garden Courtyard style Restaurant with an air con dining area indoors.
We ordered several dishes to share and I ordered their BLT, which was served as a Submarine Sandwich. It was great, with Cucumbers added if I wanted them on my Sub.
Pancit Bihon with Shrimp, Pork Sisig and Fried Mushrooms with Garlic Butter Sauce. All the food was fabulous and everyone in our group enjoyed it.
A few prices for ya. The BLT is P140. The Fried Mushrooms are P75. The Sisig is P149 and the Pancit is P165. Most all dishes on the Menu at Jian’s are under P200.
Ice Cold San Miguel Pilsen is P50 per bottle.
Jian’s has about a half dozen different Sandwiches on their menu.
I do not normally order Spaghetti in a restaurant but next time, I plan trying their Spaghetti Anchovy with Garlic Bread and Salad.
Foreigners and Filipinos alike should enjoy Jian’s Restaurant. Fabulous atmosphere and nice decor as well. Service was very good and much better than average, as witnessed in some other restaurants.
Jian’s is located in Puntebella Subdivision, 2nd Road Venus Street, beside Santo Nino Orphanage, Barangay Taculing.
I hope to see you one day, somewhere…all around Bacolod.

On the holiday, Ninoy Aquino Day, we went to May’s Organic Garden, which his located south Bacolod City and before Barangay Sum-Ag. We did not go until the afternoon, so the restaurant was about to close up but we were not hungry yet! Next time.
There are a number of bonsai trees near the convention center.
If you are interested, you can rent one of the Swan Boats and take a spin around the lake!
A great place to have a wedding reception or for holding a large association meeting in their convention center.

A Bridge Over Untroubled Waters!
We had a fun-filled afternoon at May’s Organic Gardens! Admission was P100 for adults and no charge for children. If you plan availing the swimming pool, it is P100 for adults and P50 for children. We did not need a cottage rental for the day, so we did not ask the price. There were plenty of shaded places to sit because there were not many people there in the late afternoon. There is a hotel on site and we were told it was P1,500 per night. Since we live in Bacolod, we didn’t need a hotel room! The restaurant closes at 2pm, so if you want to eat, go early. The restaurant is located at the entrance of May’s Organic Garden. A friend told me they have great fruit shakes!
There is organic fertilizer, vermicast, and we were told that organic fruit and vegetables are also sold, when available. We saw a lemongrass distillery for making lemongrass oil. One use for lemongrass oil is mosquito repellent.
If you want to enjoy the beauty of nature, I recommend putting May’s Organic Garden on your must see list.
