Santa Fe Resort, Barangay Granada, Bacolod City

The chef's name is "Junior"

Today, it behooved self to become really, really nosy.  Why?  Because people here are so patient with her!  She feels like a little girl!  No, in fact, a baby!  A baby who’s come new-wrapped from the great U.S. of A.!  Who knows nothing, nothing at all, especially about practical matters like:

When is the best time to plant a mango tree?

Why aren’t there more flower farms on Negros?

And:  How does one cook sisig?

So, she surfaced in Crocodile Haven a little after 7 a.m.  Only one employee was in the restaurant, which was not yet open.  Fluster, fluster.  People started scurrying.  Everyone recognizes her from when she was a little girl.  Never mind that self is now very old.  In fact, ancient.  Here, she’ll always be Inday Batchoy.

The waiter’s name is Joey.  He is the hinablos (nephew, self presumes) of the kusinero.  He had just begun to walk to the kitchen with self’s order when she grabbed her camera and decided to follow him.  And she burst into the kitchen and —  TA RA!  There she was for the first time, in the kitchen of Santa Fe Resort!

In the picture above, Leo the Lifeguard is the man whose back is turned.  He was having breakfast: a small plate of bihon.  Self ordered pork sisig.  It turned out spicy —  first time self has tried pork sisig that was spicy, but she liked it.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
