Mother Nature shines when its bounty incorporates natural surroundings and local fare, and this is definitely the case with one restaurant located at a resort in the Philippines. It transports you to a bygone era surrounded by swaying palm trees, coconut groves, and traditional dining customs with no overnight stay required.
Labasin Waterfall Restaurant, a central cultural component of the Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort in the Philippines, is part of the resort's day tour package. Tucked into a working coconut plantation dating back to the late 1800s, the eatery lies in Tiaong, Quezon; about two hours from the capital city of Manilla.
Aptly named, Labasin Waterfall Restaurant literally lies in the path of falls that are a byproduct of Labasin Dam, the country's first hydroelectric plant. The waters flow gently into the resort, creating a shallow river at the eating area, where you'll enjoy a traditional kamayan-style Filipino brunch buffet. “Kamayan” is a Tagalog word for "by hand" and refers to a traditional communal style of eating in the Filipino culture.
