Before catching our flight back to Manila, we decided to try out a restaurant we all have heard of from people who go to Legazpi City. A 5 minute drive from the airport, Small Talk restaurant is accessible to tourists and a definite must try.
Adorned with family pictures and personal memorabilia, Small Talk is a family home turned into a restaurant. The cozy ambience makes dining relaxing and homey that I can personally stay for hours just reading a book while enjoying their yummy food.
But then, we only had an hour for a quick merienda so the group decided to order pizza and assorted fruit shakes. The pizza of our choice should very well have that Bicolano twist to it, there came in the Bicolana. Topped with pinangat (laing), a dish most popular in the Bicol region, and of pineapple chunks, mozarella and mushrooms.
The Bicolana was delicious. The pinangat blended gracefully with the other ingredients and there was nothing intimidating about it. Make sure to try this pizza when you get the chance to be in Legazpi City. Other Bicolano food that I would have wanted to try out was the Pinangat Pasta (which I hear, isn’t too spicy), Tilmok (crablets and coconut flesh wrapped in taro and cooked in gata) and their bestseller, Mayon Pasta. I will definitely try these when I go back.
And for the fruit shakes? My choice was the green mango shake, and it was blended perfectly. It was just the right amount of sweetness and sourness at the same time. Another best seller is the Buko Pandan Shake that my friends are raving of.
After a full day exploring Legazpi, Small Talk was definitely the perfect way to bid the city goodbye. We caught our plane back to Manila just in time, with a full belly and memories to last us until we get to come back.
Small Talk needs no big talk to entice people to eat there, let the food do all the talking.
