We went to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (blog post here) this May and had a day tour with set lunch and mirienda. The package was P 1200 per person and I can say that the food was really worth it. I like the ambiance of their restaurant though there were a couple of flies going around. The people there were really polite and accommodating. They consistently greets the incoming guests with a happy face.

Binakol - Their specialty dish. It's basically like a sweet Tinola. Why? Binakol has Coconut meat and juice to make it sweet. No more sayote or papaya. Though it was my first time to eat this dish, I can say that the sweetness of the coconut is enough for the dish to make it good.
Bulalo Soup - This comes with the set meal for the day. Worth it. It has greens, potato, and meat. Usually, bulalo soup from a set meal don't have much vegetables or even the meat, but this one's different. This soup was good.
Barbeque Porkchop - I think the serving was enough for me. Usually, the first thing I taste in a dish that comes with a sauce is that sauce. The barbeque sauce was just awesome. The blending of sweet and spicy tomato sauce with such good spices was really good! The meat was tender. The vegetables were fine, I was amazed that the veggies has sliced tomatoes.
Fish FIllet - The fish was good. I forgot what fish they used, but I'm sure it's not cream dory. All I can say is cream dory fillet tasted better for me than this fish. I thought that the fillet lacked spices to make it more appetizing.
Leche Flan - Just fine. They said they used pure egg yolk but I'm really not sure with that. It was not that compact as I slice it. Gaaah. Parang kulang pa sa halo o parang may hangin pa sa loob pag hiniwa -- ganung effect. But, the taste was good, I just don't like the texture.
Cafe Marivent Menu (page 1) - Their dishes is a bit pricy, but based on our meal, I think that will do. :)

Our mirienda was Pansit Bihon with Bread and softdrinks. I forgot to take a picture of it. The pancit was also good! We asked if they have calamansi, and they told us they ran out of calamansi and gave us sliced lemons instead. Haha! :)
Philippine-Japan Friendship Tower, Bagac, Bataan. Located at the junction triangle in Bagac before Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. In front of this tower is the terminal for Balanga, Bataan. This is a Buddhist bell that serves as the sign of friendship between Philippines and Japan.
