I just finished writing the Part I. I really did not plan to have 2 posts about Day 1. But then, I want to make a separate post so that the yummy foods of we tasted & ate on the opening day is really worth shouting to the world to come and try them –
It was an early dinner at Jacko’s Kan-anan our host for the opening program of the event. They were also one of our generous #EAtIligan sponsors.
Their grilled tuna is one of my all-time faves.
Tuna is my fave sea food. ha ha ha
I am not new to Jacko’s Kan-anan and these foods above were always served. I do not think they become luma because it is seafoods. Who would turn back eating seafoods even if you have it daily. Since I cannot eat all those stuff in the bila-o, grilled tuna became my favorite of the night with the blanched vegetables.
Two new ones were served which I think were first time for me to see — the driedfish (danggit) and the plain boiled vegetables with malunggay as toppings.
Bulad nga Danggit
I feasted on all those foods especially the plain boiled veggies. The bulad and the law-oy makes you feel that homey “luto ni nanay” feel but in a nice restaurant. In many Fipino homes, bulad is just a plain and simple food and some even described it as viand of the poor. Oh well, Danggit is the bulad for the rich because it takes several hundred pesoses to get a kilo of this yummy boneless dried fish.
Our desserts at Jacko’s were of course the fresh fruits (watermelon & pineapple bits) as well as the Churro Ice Cream bowl. I did not tasted the ice cream bowl anymore with the hope not to spike my sugar level to crazy level.
For me, Jacko’s Kan-anan is a place for families to have their Sunday lunch date or even any day of the week. They do not only serve at their restaurant but they also do catering or party size menu. If you think my post is not so detailed of what they sell to their customers, then check out this page – Their short-order menu list.
Thank you Jacko’s for filling our tummy early in the night.

Paseo de Santiago is now one considered as one of the “not to be missed” tourist attraction in the City. It is located in Brgy. Santiago. A private owned place – it opened its door to the public after it was designed into a family-friendly park where everyone can relax and enjoy the view of the sea especially in late afternoons.
This is a Friday night so the place was a bit packed with people – family having picnics, couples on dates, and others who were enjoying the amenities of the palce – all enjoying the music made by the assigned band to perform during this evening.
We showed off the place to our cdo-based participants. We had group photos taken with Iligan City as our backdrop.
The ambience of the place was really conducive for couples and families to enjoy the evening. You can go there anytime with our without food as foods are available from the shops. Dinner kind of foods not just snacks are readily available in the area.
I’ve seen structures which I think the place can be a venue for a wedding reception or maybe a debut or a birthday party to be remembered.
The place is called Paseo de Santiago which means a plaza or a walkway for strolling or leisurely walk or stroll, especially one taken in the evening located in Barangay Santiago. Just a few meters from the main highway.
There is a minimal entrance fee upon entering the place.
After the quick tour, we left for our next foodie destination –
The biggest pizzaria in Iligan City! The place for a barkada to enjoy their favorite pizza and pasta! So that night, they served us for a taste for their best selling pizza and their cool drinks and of course their juicy chicken which you can with with spicy flavor or none.
This is my ever ever favorite kind of pizza!
Even my daughter, this is the best after any beef overload toppings.
I love Greenwich but it is not advisable for me to frequent the place and indulge such yummyness or else I will leave this Earth earlier than everyone else. So when we come here, once in a blue moon, we really indulge to our heart’s desire.
This is the kind of flavor who loves anything with bacon can enjoy.
What I love about GW is that, they have varied flavors that even those who do not eat any meat, can still treat themselves to pizza because they just love pizza.
The cool thirst quenchers!
I had two glasses of these drinks!
The last but not the least we had to enjoy that evening was the —
Spicy & Non-spicy
Now our stomachs were filled to the brim. ha ha ha. I blame it on the hard-to-resist foods!
And the night ended!
