Picky eaters don’t need to worry about not having a decent place to eat in Naga.
Some of the restaurants in Manila are there. Surprisingly, even Yellow Cab, Kopiroti, and Gerry's Grill have made it. But for those who are searching for local food and restaurants specific to Naga, try going to the places that we ate in. Not only is the food delicious, it's generally pocket friendly.
1. Cely’s Eatery
Don’t leave Naga without trying Kinalas—a local beef noodle soup. A small bowl fills you up but leaves you wanting more. It's full of flavor so add condiments sparingly. Great with puto or banana cue.
|Kinalas with Egg|
Cost: Less than Php 60 (inclusive of drinks, puto, and banana cue)
Where: Cely's Eatery, corner Barlin and Dimasalang St.
From what I hear, it’s more popular than Jollibee! This actually reminds me of Goldilocks because of its specialty cakes, various bread products, and Pinoy meals at extra affordable prices.
Where: SM Naga or P. Burgos St.
3. CamSur Watersports Complex (CWC) Clubhouse
It’s a 20-minute drive from the city but the Laing Pizza makes it all worth it. It’s the best seller! The thin-crust pizza has taro leaves cooked in coconut milk and chili, topped with mozzarella cheese.
Price: Php 230
Where: CamSur Watersports Complex (CWC), Pili

4. Bora Hut
This is a perfect example of the laid-back gimik places in town. People can still hear each other talk, eat delicious food, and drink. Try the Steak Habanero, Cheesticks, Hipontastik, and Jamba Gambas.
Price: Php 530 all; Php 106 pax (including drinks)
Where: Penafrancia Ave.
5. Red Platter Grill
If Red Ribbon became a posh restaurant, this would be it. Try the Bicol’s Best Pinangat and Bicol Express! Also try the Bouillabaisse, Paksiw na Pata, and the Salt-and-Pepper Squid, among others.
Price: Php 1,355 all; Php 271 pax
Where: Magsaysay Ave.
If I find myself in Naga again, Bigg’s Diner and Bob Marlin will be my next food stops!
