1. Quezon Province, the Next Frontier of Road Food Trip Adventure

The province of Quezon is starting to be appreciated as a road food trip destination. Now, people find there's more to it than the usual Pahiyas celebration in Lucban. Three of my favorite restaurants are located in Quezon: Ugu Bigyan in Tiaong, Quezon; Jay's Kubli Springs in Dolores, Quezon, and the Crispy Pata Place in Candelaria.
Giannina of FoodStyling-Manila has a great blog series on her Quezon Road Food Adventure -- from Real Quezon's Beach Side Seafood Market to Fresh Seafood BBQ at Jualian Resort in Real to Biliran Island for Picnic and to the Malunok Falls via the Real-Mauban "Coastal Highway". She certainly covered more ground beyond the traditional Lucban visit and stopover at Kamayan sa Palaisdaan. She even featured Dahilican Port, which is the jump-off point for the other remote islands in Quezon, like Polillo Island.
Quezon will be my next Road Food Trip destination in 2012, specifically because of the relaunch of Balesin (which is south of Polillo Island), the beautiful and laidback beaches of Cagbalete Islands (via Mauban Quezon) and BonPen, the new destination in the 3rd district of Quezon.
