  1. What a lovely Bacolod restaurant and it’s good to know that they are constantly making expansion and adding improvements to the place. It’s great that is suitable for families with kids, too. Imay’s Restaurant really looks good.

  2. Oh wow, I would like to try the food in this restaurant, once I visit Bacolod. They look so tasty, especially the Lechon Kawali and Calderata 🙂 So easy to look for Imay’s too, because of it’s location.

  3. It is great to see a business thriving when so many others are shutting down. I like the sound of the crispy kamkong, do they have any other delicious vegetarian dishes that I may have as well?

  4. Wow!It’s great to see that they have yearly fiesta lunch and the dinner buffet! No wonder you’ve bookmarked the restaurant and I must admit that the tadiang looks too crispy and yummy!I’d take that!
