Palaisdaan Restaurant details

Palaisdaan Restaurant - Tayabas City, Quezon

Palaisdaan Restaurant translates to a "fish pond" restaurant. It is one of the several "kamayan" themed restaurants in Tayabas City. For those who are not familiar with what a kamayan-themed is, it is a restaurant that encourages its visitors to eat with their bare hands. Something Filipinos do in ancient times and can still be seen in very rural areas at present.

Palaisdaan Restaurant is usually confused with another famous restaurant called Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Restaurant which is also in the municipality. The said restaurant is actually owned by the family of the owner of Palaisdaan Restaurant hence the close resemblance with the theme and the name.

Going back to the dishes, most of the delicacies served in Palaisdaan Restaurant are mostly made from fish. Meat lovers should not fear though, there are other dishes made from pork, beef and chicken too. (I suggest you avail most of the dishes made from fish because the restaurant is not named "Palaisdaan" for no reason)

We visited Palaisdaan Restaurant during our Laguna - Quezon Visita Iglesia last 2015. We had our late lunch at Palaisdaan Restaurant and I have to admit, I was particularly attracted by the beautiful scenery more than the food.
