Entering its grounds, you’ll feel like you just traveled to Thailand without paying for expensive plane tickets. Isdaan is known for its Thai and Pinoy inspired design, seen in the gigantic Thai-inspired statues you can see from afar and the classic floating kubos. It’s a treat for those who enjoy both good food and spots to post for the gram.

The food

This themed restaurant is under the same owners of Barrio Fiesta, so expect that the Pinoy dishes served here are surely worth the wait. Some of their best sellers include Barrio Fiesta’s famous crispy pata, pork adobo, fried Lapu-Lapu, and spicy crab.

All are served on a spread of banana leaves, to highlight the classic Pinoy kamayan eating experience. Do add some side dishes like salted egg, bagoong, ensalada, and sliced green mangoes, and you might find yourself having extra servings of rice.

 

Activities

Other than scrumptious Pinoy dishes, visitors get to enjoy entertainment and activities in Isdaan. There are performances around lunchtime, with live music, magic, and acrobatics.

If you have pent up feelings or just want to lash out, visit their Tacsiyapo, the Kapampangan word for having no shame, wall where you can smash ceramic plates and mugs. The wall is painted with possible reasons why you’re mad, and make sure to aim well.
