Kamayan sa Palaisdaan sa Bay Laguna
It was already nearing 12 noon and good thing they arrived a tad early for, after a while, all the huts were occupied and some waited for vacancies not wanting to dine in the place's usual restaurant preferring the floating bahay kubo ambiance.
picture of floating native huts near the entrance
childrens' playground even for the young at heart
ginataang hipon (shrimps in coconut milk) (price: P210), Tutubi's choice though there's only 4 pieces of shrimps.
inihaw na talong with bagoong (roasted eggplant with fish sauce (that stinks to most people yet tastes heavenly to some) (price: P35/order)
sinigang na panga ng tuna (tuna jaw in sour soup Filipino style)(P600 per order but can be half only like this one at P300)
sizzling pusit (squid) that's a little rubbery but the sauce is good though Tutubi prefers it to be a little more spicier
Fresh Buco Juice to wash them all down with its malauhog greatness
The total bill for 5 people was only P1,050.00, not bad for the great food, rustic ambiance and picturesque place about 40 minutes drive from Paete.
It's another unplanned trip that turned out great. Next time, Tutubi will visit the original one in Tayabas reportedly owned by a sibling of the owner of this restaurant...stay tuned!

How to go to Kamayan sa Palaisdaan sa Bay:
Commute:the floating restaurants can be reached only via tricycle from Bay town. Not yet sure if the jeepneys that ply Calamba-Sta Cruz route pass by it.Green Star and HM Tranport buses from Pasay and Cubao pass by Bay, Laguna.
If you've strayed into blog looking for directions to Calumpang, Laguna, it's a town accessible via Laguna's capital town of Sta. Cruz. Driving from SLEX, take Calamba exit then turn right at Calamba national highway, head straight passing by the resort town of Los Banos, then Bay (you'll see Kamayan sa Palaisdaan on the highway to your right) soon after you'll see the big duck of Victoria, the heritage town of Pila with its old houses and historic plaza, before Sta. Cruz. After passing by SunStar Mall you'll see a traffic light. Turn right if you want to go to Calumpang or Liliw, turn left going to Sta Cruz poblacion or Laguna Provincial Capitol or straight ahead going to Pagsanjan (where Pagsanjan Falls is), Lumban, Kalayaan or Paete.
Update: there's an on-going construction of Isdaan Floating restaurant near this restaurant and Samaral Seafood Restaurant. There's also Kamayan sa Palaisdaan sa Tayabas, Quezon

Oh wow.. ang ganda ng photos ng mga kubo.
I've been to the one in Tayabas. Meron din pala sa Laguna. Palaisdaan is really world class. Yet the prices remain reasonable.

toe, yes i read your post on this too. sana lang there'ssomething like this in manila
rhodora, nice bahay kubo ambiance nga
bw, didn't order inihaw na tilapia there since it's cheaper at home. recommend catching your own tilapia and have it cooked

Thanks for visiting Pedestrian Observer and commenting on "WEG, Boom or Doom on RP Tourism?" article I posted.
Philippines is a nice tourist destination and have a lot to offer like what you posted here but if the government bureaucrats and policy makers don't do anything regarding contentious issues we are losing out.
If I may request you and make an appeal to your readers and other bloggers promoting RP tourism to help us call the attention of lawmakers to scrap or at least re-examine these silly rules & regulations then we are able to help boost tourism in the country.

Uuuuy galing kami dyan sa Palaisdaan after our second-to-the last trek sa Majayjay last year! Nice place.
Happy New Year, tutubi!
Galing ka nga pala ng Paete! We're planning a trek this weekend. It's either Magdapiao Falls in Cavinti, Laguna, or Matabungka Falls in Paete, Rizal. Or, it might be another destination altogether!

pieterbie, you can also catch your own fish there mainly tilapia, mudfish and catfish (notthe koi) and ask them to cook for you
politicaljaywalker, willpost about it one of these days since it's really a concern for me...us
carlotta, no extra charge for use ofthe huts. first come first served nga lang or make a reservation
lawstude, my favorite actually. for dinner just tonight i had ginataang hipon again with pineapples though i prefer it with kamias the way my father cooks it
cm, bisita ka kahit yung tayabas. relaxing!
watson, so you know the alternate trek to magdapio w/o shooting the rapids? haven't been to pagsanjan falls myself since i find it too touristy and i used to row my own boat that's why i;m not thrilled :P
