Healthy and tasty food meet superb ambiance at Bob Nowongs

Here’s the thing. I’m a sucker for healthy, savory food. Pop a healthy food counter somewhere near an outdoor spot and you got me hooked for good.

Five Star

The place is cozy, well kept, clean, love the interior design and how its put up to pair relaxation with food.

While Lake Sebu is home to the tastiest tilapia recipes one can think off, one restaurant is offering healthy, innovative food choices.  Combine great food with a relaxing ambience, Bob Nowongs in Lake Sebu is one tasty recent discovery for me. Bob Nowong’s recipes and menu will put some pricey restaurants to shame.

Here’s why.

Chicken Paella, all the way.

Healthy it is. Hands down Bob Nowongs Garden Salad  is my favorite. So is their pasta and chicken paella (valenciana). I am not even a pasta or paella eater.

For pizza lovers, Bob Nowongs thick pizza made of beef, paprika, onions and cheese is a must try. Their Pizza Rustica below, is with sweet basil leaves 🙂

The honey lemon glazed chicken is also crispy yummy with the right kind of melt inside.

For my afternoon coffee, the local “T’boli Coffee” paired with choco banana chaffle works wonders for a the caffeine addict in me.

Look at Bob’s Nowong Coffee nook!


A wonder coffee bar. I’d like one at home 🙂

Hey thats all I’ve tasted for now! and I’m still salivating for the others in their menu!

What about service, their crew? Well, have you seen a a service crew so courteous and friendly they would initiate the selfies you wanted and paste them on Bob Nowongs facebook page themselves!  Also, for the kind of meticulous food prep they do, it’s surprising they can serve food this good at reasonable time.

To top it all, you’d be surprise the ones serving you is the owner herself. Man, if that does not count for an above par service, I don’t know what will. That’s a five star for me.

Here’s the killer plus for this restaurant. The building was designed and built by the owner himself, who is a carpenter! Look at their interiors.

Design is a telltale sign if the owners are well travelled, innovative thinkers. 🙂

Did I mention they have one fantastic location and restaurant garden? Here’s a google map pointing to Bob Nowong’s location.

Why is it conveniently located in the heart of Lake Sebu?

  • located in the center of Poblacion Lake Sebu South Cotabato

  • Close to Municipal Hospital,Santa Cruz Mission and to Municipal compound area.

I can’t possibly put everything at Bob Nowongs here. Go on to their facebook page and see most of their menus. Better yet, drop by their place whenever you’re at Lake Sebu and experience for yourself.
