About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Kamayan sa Palaisdaan sa Bay Laguna

    What was initially planned by Tutubi as a return visit to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon and a sidetrip to Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Tayabas also in Quezon turned out into a visit to Calumpang, Laguna to get some lanzones/langsat, coffee seedlings and other herbs including basil (that Tutubi initially thought was taheebo) then a quick drive towards Bay town, famous for monay (local buns), caught sight of Victoria's "mighty duck," into the sister restaurant of Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon.

    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!

    Kainan sa Palaisdaan sa Bay
    Open from 8am to 10pm (last order at 9pm)
    Brgy. Dila, Bay, Laguna
    Landline: +63.49.568.0255
    (better reserve in advance)

    Kainan sa Palaisdaan Tayabas, Quezon
    Brgy. Dapdap, Tayabas, Quezon
    Tel. No.: +63.42.793.3654
    Fax NO.: +63.42.793.3655

    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.

    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

    Hey, I could have enjoyed that.

    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.

    P1050? worth it nga for 5 people samahan mo pa nung ambience.. meron bang extra charge kung sa bahay kubo?

    I suddenly go hungry. Thanks for thos post may pupuntahan na ko resto sa Laguna.

    If you happen to go to Tarlac, meron sila similar na resto called Isdaan. I was there last week and I'll post it in my blog soon.

    Grabe, sarap ng hipon.

    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!

    At Jan 7, 2008, 10:20:00 PM, Blogger GingGoy said...

    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

    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
