In Legazpi, mini-buffets are really popular wherein you will pay only around P250. The downside of this, however, is that you are faced with limited varieties. Waway's Restaurant is one of those restaurants that offer a mini-buffet, and we were able to try it out during our Legazpi Adventure.

There was a sufficient number of appetizers to choose from which I very much appreciated. However, I found them somehow plain.

The Main Dishes

There were no less than 12 varieties of dishes for the main course. Freeing the blogger in me, I decided to note them down, so here are the dishes available when we visited Waway's Restaurant: Bopis, Pancit Guisado, Bicol Express, Laing, Gulay na Malunggay, Sauteed Beans, Beef Kare Kare, Green Peas with Quail Eggs, Fish Escabeche, Pusit Guisado and Dinuguan.

The photo above shows the famous Bicol Express. However, I didn't dare to taste it because my friends mentioned that it was too spicy, which I may not be able to tolerate well. If you love spicy food, you will definitely find this enjoyable because some of my friends did, so I am considering this as a must-try.

Veggie Dish: Laing
Aside from Bicol Express, Bicol where Legazpi is situated is famous for the pinangat or laing.

One of the dishes I highly appreciated was the Bopis because of the playful flavors.

Beef Kare-Kare of Waway's Restaurant
The Not-So-Awesome Beef Kare-Kare
I got excited when I saw that Waway was offering Beef Kare-Kare because it is my all-time favorite among Filipino dishes! Too bad I got pretty disappointed with this one. It was tasteless even you put Bagoong. It was probably the most unsatisfactory Kare-Kare I ever tasted.

Grilled Liempo
Between the two grilled dishes, I prefer their Liempo because of its juiciness, unlike the chicken which I found somewhat dry.

Another source of disappointment was the lack of desserts selection. Will you believe that this is the one thing they got?

  1. Very much filipino ang mga food at base sa review mo parang ndi ka na satisfied...

    1. Haha! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Filipino dishes. Siguro, I really had high expectations, but I really love the Bopis and Grilled Liempo though. :)
