Isdaan Floating Restaurant, Gerona Tarlac

After going to the 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, we trooped to Isdaan Floating Restaurant for a hearty lunch. There was heavy traffic due to the road being reconstructed so it took us almost 2 hours of travel from Clark to Tarlac. We were all famished when we reached the restaurant. Children are required to wear life vests for safety reasons since the water is 6-9 ft deep. Once we were sitted, a staff gave the kids free fish food so they can feed the koi fishes. They also got free angry bird balloons. There is a wide variety of dishes to chose from (only filipino dishes) which are all reasonably priced. A group of singers went to our table to entertain us with their hip hop songs, one of it was Nicki Minaj's popular song Super Bass which I really really like that It makes me want to dance whenever I hear this. lol! Aside from loving the food I absolutely loved the ambience which was quite interesting and reminded me of Thailand with all these huge golden buddha statues around. A friend recommended to try visiting the other branch of Isdaan which is located in Calauan Laguna. She says the place is more huge and there's a lot more to see so expect another post about Isdaan floating restaurant in the near future.



huge fish statues will greet you at the entrance of the restaurant




Sis wanted to dance too!

Hi Anney,

I read your comment, but you didn't leave a link for this person's blog who has stolen my blog content so I can go there to check it out. Not to long ago, I found someone who has just about all of my blog posts on their blog. It was called aneanetok.blogspot.com. I was very upset about this. It wasn't just mine that was stolen, everything on this blog was from someone else's blog. I checked them out, all stolen from someone else's blogs! Unfortunately, this happens and I didn't really see any way of reporting it. However, I disabled the copy & paste function on my blog so it wouldn't make it so easy for them to steal the posts. I posted about this on my blog to warn others and I visited the ones he stole from to tell them their posts were on his blog!! This is the post entry if you want to check it out and let me know if this is the one you were talking about:

Thanks very much,

Dorothy

Gracie said...

Whatta lovely place! Trip ko dyan, another place to fill up my long list :D

Adin B said...

This is the place that I told my husband about because I saw this on the news a long time ago. I want me some fresh mango juice and fresh fish, please! Oh! I am sooo..... drooling. These are just some fun photos mommy and it does look like Thailand if you didn't mention it was in the Philippines. How awesome! I always love your travel photos.

sherene said...
