No day lately has been spared with a heavy downpour of rain. Flooded streets, grey clouds and dirty, waterlogged footwear are the fix—kind of a wet season aesthetic. So where can we go to and silong when stranded in the middle of downpour downtown?
There’s nothing better to beat the glum weather than a savory plate of homemade tapsilog to keep your tummy warm. Lucky for all of us, Naga City is full of places where you can eat affordably at an untimely rainfall.
