This is a go to place for late night caps. Food is reasonably priced and taste is spot on. Nothing extraordinary but no misses either.

Went to eat here twice because we couldn't get enough of their food. You get your money's worth eating here :) Enjoyed the ribs, bangus sisig and the pickled ampalaya sides. Definitely would come to eat here again!

After visiting the Leyte Capitol building on a Sunday evening, we took a trip to the city hall where they had a carnival set up in time for their upcoming fiesta. The kids got hungry but we did not want barbecues again since we already tried barbecue when we first arrived in the city. I messaged my friend who grew... More

I think I expected more from Calle Z after hearing so much about it. There is an air conditioned section which lacks atmosphere, the outside section is much nicer. The food is nice but nothing special. Service and tables are fairly basic.

They offer large servings, that made my tummy full. Fried Calamari, Chicharong Bulaklak (Deep Fried Pork Intestines) and Crispy Tenga (Pork Ears) were great appetizers, then we ordered the bestseller, which was bulalo (Beef Marrow Stew). It was delicious. The other dish that I have requested was Bangus Sisig, and it tastes just fine. Perfect match with a cold bottle... More
