When you hear the word “Los Banos,” you have to admit that the first thing that pops into mind is either buko pie or hot springs. Uy, aminin~
Being the home of the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB), eLBi offers an exciting food trip adventure to cater the needs of the growing student populace in the area. So you may want to add food trip on your vocabularies when you think of words associated with Los Banos.
With the increasing number of restaurants in town, I have decided to try them all to prove myself worthy of being called a devoted foodie, charaught.
So let’s begin my food trip diary with my personal pick and favorite. Bonitos Bar & Restaurant will always be present if you will google a list of must-try restos in eLBi. Bonitos offers a wide range of mouth-watering delicacies to choose from: from Filipino to American to Italian~
Biases aside, Bonitos tops my list of must-try restos in eLBi since I haven’t tried anything that disappointed me (yet). The ambience is not as serene compared to a 5-star restaurant and also feels a bit crowded since they added more tables and chairs to accommodate their increasing customers. Hopefully they renovate the place to a much bigger one or make it a two-story establishment.
Bonitos may be a bit pricey for students, but the food is definitely worth it.
