Kalei's Grill in La Trinidad, BenguetNovember 19, 2011
Scouting for casual dining places at night in La Trinidad (Benguet) without being tempted to just instead drive to the city, could be challenging for those finding an alternative to Jack's and Marosan's and for those who want to eat in comfort minus being seated near tables of alcoholic drinks patrons. Establishments close early , so our alternative fastfood meals at Pines Supermart's Calajo or just Tiongsan's Greenwich are but closed, unless we decide to pop in at Km5's Jollibee or McDonalds.
My brothers suggested Kalei's Grill along Km.4. All the while I thought this was a pub with live bands playing at night, and would later know it has two sections with adjacent entrances - the pub and the casual dining resto.
The resto has a traditional western tavern ambiance infused with some local (Igorot) accent as influenced by the country-music-loving market.
I'd say there's enough on the menu to offer.
|I did not note the dish but it sure has wine.|
|The white sugar served in unsealed small plastic made me smile|
|The interiors give a mixed impressions of sorts. An Igorot deerhunter accent is added to the cowboy-cum western fisherman's haven feel.|
