Dominic's Kamayan Restaurant

Great news!  There's a new place to dine in Talakag.  Dominic's Kamayan Restaurant officially opened today.  This is situated in Barangay 4, where the Delaota's used to live which is just between the Plaza and the Public Market.

The native theme (see photos below) is obvious with the restaurant's bamboo/nipa construction, bamboo tables and chairs, old rustic lamps for lighting effect, and clay plant pots dotted around.  The theme extends to food being served on native woven plates lined with banana leaves so be prepared to eat your food with your hands (kamayan style).  The menu is simple and the prices reasonable.

Good luck to Dominic Lanas on his new venture.  With the restaurant's opening coinciding with the Fiesta and Linggo Ng Talakag events, he has strategically timed it well.
