One of the most well-loved homegrown Bacolod restaurants is Imay’s Bar and Restaurant, located at 6th-Lacson Streets, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. It’s a go-to place for casual dining, especially for big groups, because of their affordable food, big servings, and tasty dishes.
Imay’s: A Landmark at 6th Street
Imay’s Bar and Restaurant was among the first few restaurants along 6th Street. Eventually, the area came to be casually known as the Restaurant Row, because of the many small to big Bacolod restaurants that have opened in the area.
But while many have closed, Imay’s has remained strong. In fact, they continued growing. They kept on expanding and adding new features. such as more air conditioned function rooms. One of their recent additions was the playroom, which my children really enjoy.
All-Time Favorites at Imay’s Bar and Restaurant
Perhaps every Bacolodnon has a good memory at Imay’s Bar and Restaurant. It could be a romantic date, a birthday, an anniversary celebration, even a company get-together. It seems that the appeal of Imay’s trascends age, gender, and even social status.
And some of the dishes are memorable for some people, too. For me, it’s their oysters and the porbidang kangkong. haha What about you? What’s your favorite dish at Imay’s?
Imay’s Celebrates 15 Years
So it has been a yearly tradition at Imay’s Bar and Restaurant to hold a special fiesta lunch and dinner buffet. For an affordable ticket, one can partake of their sumptuous collection of Pinoy favorite dishes, which include lechon (roast pork), sizzling cansi, kare-kare, and most of the items on their menu.
This year, it’s P450 per person, all in, inclusive of unlimited drinks. There were about 26 dishes in all! Hundreds of diners joined in the celebration from lunch to dinner. They hold this only once a year, so we can expect this again in 2019. It happens every May 31.
