Isdaan Floating Resto-Fun Park Part One : the Food

29 October 2012
Isdaan Floating Resto-Fun Park
National Highway, Calauan, Laguna

My GF and I went to her sister's home in Sto. Tomas, Batangas to visit her and her kids plus a quick tour in Laguna-Batangas Area. As part of the Itinerary we went to Isdaan Resto-Fun Park in Calauan, Laguna for lunch after our short stops in San Pablo and Nagcarlan towns (also in Laguna)

Quick facts:
* Isdaan Floating Resto-Fun Park is claimed by others to be located in Bay(,Laguna) but its NOT. It's Politically under the town of Calauan just right after Bay.
*  Isdaan Floating Resto-Fun Park is under and managed by Bario Fiesta group of companies, which includes: Bakahan at Manukan; Bario Fiesta; and Singing Cooks and Waiters. Thus the place have four (4) restos in one.
* The First Isadaan Resto-Fun Park is located in Gerona, Tarlac and soon they will open a new branch in Talavera, Nueva Ecija

For the first part, I'll share to you what we ordered. As I mentioned, the place is like having four restos in one place thus the menu is so big and its hard to choose for all of them are a bit pricey but deliciously good.

GF and her sister placed the order as I roam around with her sister's two kids and cousin for a picture taking. Here's what they had ordered and as early as now, I'll tell you that all are so good.

Every fiesta have rice so since we are a total of 6 pax we had two "Bagong Saing sa Kaldero". Each Kaldero is good for 2-3 pax. See that spoon? It's not a normal serving spoon, its just a simple table spoon we used as a serving spoon. Thats how small the pot is.

Pros: Nothing beats a newly cooked rice strait for the pot. Much cheaper than ordering individually cupped rice.
Cons : Each pot have burned  rice and they are a big waste and it affects the taste. We had about more than a cup of burned rice.

What I do love about their "sisters" tag team, they ordered a dish per food group:

For Appetizers and Salad we had "Enseladang Talong" and "Tinadtad na Mangga"

For the pork we had two: "Inihaw na Spareribs" and "Lechon Kawali"

Then as for our soup and chicken we had "Tinolang Manok". GF's Sister said that while we are all away -for our picture taking - they served the Tinola incased in a bamboo tube - Kapangpangans call it "binulo" - then poured in this bowl.

Pro: Serving it in Binulo style makes it more "pinoy".
Con: They used a bit ripe papaya thus it dosen't taste like good'old Tinola.

Lastly to quench our thirst -from our travel, from the sunny heat and as we say "panulak", we had three pitchers of Ice Tea.

Over all Pros: They are all good and Tasty
Over all Cons: for a big guy like me, their serving as somehow not big enough for me. If you share it, you'll all get a bit.


Ambiance = 6/5 you'l be transported to another place like Bali or Thailand.
Food Taste = 5/5 except for the tinola which is 4/5.
Budget = 3/5 its abit high priced compared to its serving.
Service = 6/5 they are so honest, courteous and friendly.

To get there:
*by Bus: Ride a bus en route to Sta. Cruz, Laguna and they will drop you off on site.

*by Private: Right turn after SLEX / ATeX Calamba Exit's roundabout to Sta. Cruz, Laguna just right after Bay-Calauan Boarder (SLEX-Calamba-Los Banos-Bay-Calauan)
