Where to Eat in Nueva Ecija | Tambayan ni Berto in Colosboa Hills, Cuyapo

 

Mountain bikers and motorcyclists alike are flocking to the rugged hills of Colosboa in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. This is because of the terrain's snaking dirt tracks that would delight any two-wheeled rider, as well as the beautiful countryside scenery. However, as the host of a TV shopping show would say, "but wait, there's more". Because Colosboa Hills is also home to a bike and souvenir shop, a rustic bar called Hill's View, and a foodie hangout place called Tambayan ni Berto.

Serving a cyclist's drink of choice — freshly brewed coffee — Tambayan ni Berto also offer various local cuisines such as pancit bihon and guisado, sinigang sa hipon, kaldereta, pinakbet, beef papaitan and the silog and goto breakfast staple choices. You can order ala-carte or by platter if you are composed of a big group.

Inspired by the traditional Filipino Bahay Kubo, Tambayan ni Berto provides a comfortable outdoor dining experience thanks to the cool wind blowing throughout the Colosboa hills and the relaxing scenery surrounding it.

Guests can choose to sit on the main dining area under the nipa-thatched roof beside the counter or under one of the tables set up in the adjacent garden.

Though we were only there to have our breakfast before touring the rest of the Colosboa Hills - where a cycling dirt track is being developed - I was already able to visualize its appeal to cyclists and even outdoor lovers as an ideal place to unwind, fuel-up with good food and hang out with friends.

In recommending this place, I guess I’ll have to repeat the words I uttered when I guested on a Travel, Food and Tech review show on GMA a few years ago, because Tambayan ni Berto is a definite “Pop na Pop”.
