Our first meal in Legaspi was in 1st Colonial Grill. We were starving from our long journey from Donsol, so after dropping off our bags in our hotel room, we went to look for some delicious food. Since my friend E read about 1st Colonial Grill and their famous sili ice cream, we decided to have lunch there. We had pinangat, lechon kawali, and plain rice.
The pinangat was okay. I personally liked it. We found the lechon kawali quite bland though. We were halfway through our meal when we realized we weren't very happy with it.
So we ordered this tinapa fried rice -- a delicious mix of fried rice, tinapa, itlog maalat, green mangoes, and tomatoes. It was tasty, hearty, garlicky, and it certainly added some magic into our meal.
Many people would say that if you're not happy with something, change it. In this case, order more food! :) Ah, you should see how much ice cream E and I consumed that day!
Service in 1st Colonial Grill needs a lot of improvement and perhaps, staff training. Other than that though, this restaurant is a must-try when in Legaspi.
