Me: It's Bicol's Jollibee.
That was the easiest explanation I could give my friend and he didn't ask a second question afterward.I don't know if he knows exactly what I meant but I guess one way or another he did.
When we got to one of the branches in "Old Albay" District of Legaspi somewhere near the city hall,the creative display on the wall says "We''re good food,not fast food". In my face!hahaha.So I felt compelled to explain to my friends again.Actually,what I wanted to say is that "you are never in Bicol unless you try Bigg's",there! It is Bicol's biggest food chain.
Or,should I have just stick to my former explanation?
Bigg's Diner Old Albay Legazpi City
"What set's Carl's Diner (former name before it finally named Bigg's in 1994) from other restaurant is it's ability to serve quality food in large portions in a casual dining environment while maintaining affordable prices that could easily rival fast-food chains".
Is that true?Magkaka-alaman.:)Orders immediately placed!
Looks really good with the plating.Taste good too.But is there anything "wow" with it?NO.
My friend actually thinks the meat is not tender enough.This order is good enough,filling enough,but at 225pesos---- it's overpriced!
Ito yung tipong,lasang pang 180php lang.if so, napa-wow pa sana kami. :)
Nice set if I may say.Fried fish with vegetable.Good combination especially because it's 'pinangat' which is similar to 'laing'.Small serving for 122php,I find it a bit pricey again.
This was my order and I was happy with it.Tasty burger with bacon,lettuce,tomato and cheese.Still,for 142php,quite pricey.To think it's not even angus beef. :)
We all agreed that food at Bigg's Diner is good but a little pricey.I guess that's a good strategy though,to increase prices a bit so that it will not be affordable to all and so the restaurant will not be flooded with people and cooks will not have to mass produce at the expense of quality.At 1pm,the restaurant's ground floor was not even half-filled with people.At the 2nd floor,there was a small group and that's all.To think it's lunch time.At least,given the good ambiance,you don't feel crowded and you get to eat slower to enjoy your meal.
Pricey but still worth the experience.If you are in Bicol,I would still suggest you give Bigg's Diner a try.You are not in Bicol unless you try Bigg's----that still holds. But for the restaurant chain to claim they...... "serve quality food in large portions in a casual dining environment while maintaining affordable prices" ---they might want to think that over. :)
