I fell in love with Bacolod when we visited last March! My friends and I (there were 4 of us) didn't have an itinerary and we just kept on checking online the restaurants worth going to and went with our whim. It wasn't very hard as restaurant after restaurant offers good food and really cheap pa! Our stay in Bacolod ended up being the most intense food trip ever! The following are the places that we tried:

Aida's in Manokan Country - inasal with the really deadly but yummy chicken oil (we also bought oysters from this guy who was selling outside Aida's)
Calea - we tried a lot of cakes here but we especially loved the white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry (not too sure) sauce (we actually went here twice in our 3-day trip)
Aboy's - kinda expensive here relative to everywhere else in bacolod but we loved the grilled scallops!
Felicia's - most people rave about the big macarons here, but I thought it was pretty average; we thoroughly enjoyed though the dulce de leche, sansrival and mocha caramel (my favorite!)
Bar21 - lovely ambiance; make sure to dress up a little; steak was great and so was the burger
Mushu - yummy mojitos!
Kuppa - our favorite was the wagyu beef burger; of course the coffee was great
Uma's - The serving of Batchoy here was good for the 4 of us, and we loved it!
Pendy's - thumbs up for the pancit molo and chicken dinuguan; of course pendy's is popular for their napoleones (which my friends loved and I found a little too sweet)

If you're ever in Bacolod, don't forget to buy pasalubong from Bongbong's! The thin piayas are crazy yummy! And maybe try to make time to go to Iloilo which is just a ferry ride away for more cheap and delicious dishes!

hi mga sis!  i just booked a flight for my mom and her friends for Masskara Festival. Suggestion naman sa mga hotel, since 5 silang senior citizens so siguro yung hindi sila mahihirapan panunuod ng parade. gusto talaga rin nila eh yung magandang hotel kahit pricey.  And, san kaya pwedeng mag book ng tour?
will start reading na rin ng mga post dito. Thanks!

^I'm not sure where it was located before but during our trip last March Mushu was open naman. It's very near Bar21, along Lacson St. (Corner of Lacson and 21st St.)

Hello sisses, Ok ba yung Go Hotel sa Bacolod? Nasa vicinity daw ng Robinsons Place yun, along Lacson Street din ba to? May nakita kasi akong promo sa site nila, halos 550 lang ang rate nila per night. TIA

yes sis cindy, kasama sa mga businesses ni Gokongwei, hehe..yung sa Boni, mukang ok naman. Then yung address nila sa Bacolod, within Robinsons area lang din so I assume ok ang location na to since malapit sa mall. Sana may mag feedback..:)

Just stumbled upon a foodblog (tama ba term ko) centered on restos in Negros Occidental. Im not sure If I can post the link here? Para those who are coming to Bacolod will have some sort of a guide on where to eat. I use this as a guide too and Im not in any way connected to the bloggers. hehe http://bacolodfoodhunters.wordpress.com/

^sugarland is in araneta st and it's near the old airport. it's an old hotel but i know they have renovated already. across the hotel is goldenfields commercial complex where you can find kundutel, mo2 resto, aboy's resto, caribbean waterpark, small restos, shakey's, a bowling lane, girly bars, disco, and casino. i have eaten at MO2 and at aboy's resto. i especially like aboy's grilled scallops.

Kagagaling lang din namin sa Bacolod two weeks ako. Pero hometown to ng mother so madalas kami umuuwi pero bihira din ako makapasyal.

Yung mga must-see places sa Negros Occ.
1. Mambukal Resort - Hot spring
2. Sipalay Beaches
3. Ancestral Houses - forgot nung name ng place

Yung hotel naman na mairecommend ko is yung L Fisher Hotel. Dito kasi yung wedding ng cousin ko, maganda yung service nila and very nice yung mga rooms. Yung Go Hotel katabi lang siya ng Robinsons Mall as in walking distance lang din.

Super daming resto sa Bacolod halos tabi-tabi lang din.

@eeatrice - Yung napuntahan kasi namin sa Sipalay e private yung place, kakilala ng Tita ko yung may-ari. I really don't have any idea sa mga katabing resorts. But yung mismong beach is maganda talaga, white sand at di pa kasi masyadong puntahin din yung lugar.

@tammy1979 - Package deal kasi sis yung sa cousin ko nung wedding nila. I'll ask her baka alam niya magkano accommodation per night. :)
