Heading to Bicol? You know it’s going to be a long ride. People who often take that journey to Region 5 know this restaurant very well. Yes, I’m talking about the Bulwagang Salakot Restaurant.
Bulwagan is the Tagalog word for ‘hall’ or anything close to this structure while salakot is a native hat being worn by Filipinos in the earlier years. The roof upon the entrance of the restaurant was shaped like a salakot.
Bulwagang Salakot Restaurant is situated in Brgy. Rosario, Gumaca, Quezon. This is a popular stop over for travelers bound to Bicol. More than just a food place, Bulwagang Salakot has a convenience/grocery store (so you don’t have to worry if you forgot something essential for your trip), a drugstore, and even a souvenir shop (in case you’re looking for a pasalubong). A Shell gasoline station is strategically located in the area.
Bulwagang Salakot is also an events venue. Thinking it’s a one-stop-shop? Yes. Imagine how it can get so crowded at times. One thing new and good? They now have rooms where you can stay if in case you can’t hold back your drowsiness and can’t continue driving.
You can contact Bulwagang Salakot Restaurant at (042) 317-6767.
