The house is quite modest, compared to the stately homes of the hacienderos of Iloilo, Bacolod and Pampanga. The first floor of the house, where the restaurant is now situated, was once a Kamalig, or storehouse for the rice. The second floor was the living area, which is used until today, complete with old furniture and accessories. The parking area of the restaurant was where the “kiskisan” or the rice mill once stood. This is where we will sample their black paella, using squid ink and sea food, after touring the house.
