After spending the morning touring the Iloilo countryside, we went back to the city at around lunchtime, so we decided to have a feast at Tatoy's Manokan and Seafoods.
Tatoy's is a native restaurant that serves Filipino, specializing in Ilonggo dishes. The place looks like a huge cottage in front of the beach, with open-air ambiance and sand on the floor. Available dishes are displayed on the counter, where one of the staff can take the orders.

Tatoy's uses native chicken for their lechon manok. It is slightly salty but this dish was delicious you'd want to eat it even without rice.
We also had a plate of Lechon Baboy (Php 200) and Sinigang na Hipon (Php 300).
|Sinigang na Hipon|
Like any carnivore, I got the Lechon Baboy. A plate is generously full of crispy skin and meat. The sauce shouldn't be ignored too. Sinigang na Hipon looks very fresh, but I wasn't able to try it. A plate of plain rice is Php 65, which is good for 2-3 persons.
We were really satisfied with the food. If you're visiting Iloilo, Tatoy's is a must-try resto for authentic and reasonably-priced Filipino dishes. I'd love to visit Tatoy's if I go back to Iloilo again.
