A Review of DSK Batchoy House at Robinsons Triangle, Bacolod City

 A Rainy Day Craving

As the heavy rain poured down on a weary day in Bacolod City, my fellow teachers and I found ourselves in dire need of a comforting meal. We had just wrapped up a challenging day of proctoring exams, and the stress was still weighing on our shoulders. The rain outside only amplified our desire for something warm and soothing. Naturally, our minds turned to a quintessential Filipino favorite – batchoy. We’d heard about a spot at Robinsons Triangle renowned for its “Super Batchoy,” though we soon discovered its true name: DSK Batchoy House.

Arrival at DSK Batchoy House: A Modest Retreat

Upon our arrival at DSK Batchoy House, it became evident that the eatery didn’t aim for a lavish atmosphere. Instead, it resembled a simple carenderia, offering a no-frills yet decent setting. Notably, the absence of a designated waiting area and the scarcity of vacant tables caught our attention. Nevertheless, considering the casual nature of the establishment, we were willing to overlook this small inconvenience.

As we searched for a table, our friend Lei Lanie’s keen eye spotted a pair of friendly girls who were already finishing their meal. With courtesy and a touch of desperation, she asked if we could share their table, and they graciously accepted. They mentioned they were waiting for their boss at the adjacent table, so the arrangement worked perfectly.

The purpose of this blog post is not to diminish La Paz Batchoy’s stature but to serve as a guide for Bacolod residents and visitors, steering them to a comforting bowl of batchoy within the City of Smiles.
