After 3 days feasting on fresh seafood, we needed a glucose fructose break. Sans Rival is a famous "pasalubong" (gift) stopover to buy up those yummy silvanas and yes, sans rival cakes. So off we went!
Our earlier visit was meant to pre-order our "take-home" silvanas but we didn't miss going on a sugar overload as we sat to taste the famed silvanas, brazo de mercedes and chocolate chip pound cake. Not wasting time, ei?
This time around, we walked up to their bistro fronting the Rizal Boulevard -- Dumaguete's equivalent to Manila's Baywalk -- and ordered paella negro to be shared among 4 of us. That plus our individual orders. Such gluttons!
Spareribs, 2 orders of bacalao a la viscayna, callos. We overordered as usual. Midway through our meal, we swore we'd be back for more. Each dish tasted delish and they're cheap too! Our bill (with 3 s.c. discounts came under P1,000. Even less than $25! Great value.
A QUICK update: We were back sooner than planned. The next day, we were ordering the Paella Mixta. A meal by itself, yet we couldn't resist ordering the Lengua Sevillana and the Fish Almondine. Once more, a delish adventure. ;-)
