Five hours in Dumaguete.Five hours to stuff ourselves.
Gabby's Bistro
Time now is 1130AM.Stomachs are growling for lunch.And we hurriedly hop (but not without agreeing on the fare first) on a tricycle to take us to Gabby's Bistro.
Gabby's Bistro, found in the residential area of Dumaguete, sits in the same compound as Florentina Homes (a hotel) and Rana Verde (a coffee shop).

Some of the many things that kept my eyes busy while waiting for our food:Gabby's BistroGabby's BistroGabby's BistroGabby's BistroFrom L-R: The Bar in the bistro. Mr. Donald Duck looking like a boss! ETHYL Gasoline Pump. Don't worry, there's a fire extinguisher, albeit an ancient one. Below: Angry Birds and a cool pre-WWII plane.Gabby's Bistro 
Here comes lunch!
Anna's Fiery SkewersGabby's Bistro Four choices for your skewer: vegetables Php 145 / chicken Php 165 / pork Php 175 /  prawns Php 215Of the four, I just had to have prawns. Great combo with its sweet and spicy sauce and java rice.
Pork MarsalaGabby's BistroAccording to the menu, it is "beer-battered and breaded pork loin fried topped with cheese and herbs,with mashed potatoes and marsala gravy." Pork plus mashed potatoes plus whatever marsala is, this delish dish is more than enough for my travel buddy.
Summer Strawberry MocktailGabby's BistroMmmm...tastes like lemonade with strawberry syrup.Maybe it is lemonade with strawberry syrup.
Verdict? More than satisfied!
