While I was in Lucena last May 12 for a business trip, I called up my brother-in-law and asked him to recommend a must-try restaurant in the area. Without hesitation, he brought us to Silangang Nayon, an off-the beaten-track restaurant in Pagbilao Cove. We drove past the Lucena City-Pagbilao intersection on the National Highway and then turned right at a small interior road and drove for a little less than 7 kilometers to get to this restaurant:
He led us down some steps and crossed a bamboo bridge to get to the bay-side dining area:
He also took the liberty of ordering for everyone. The food took awhile to arrive but we simply enjoyed the fresh air. When our order arrived, I scrambled to take pictures and thought that everything was worth the wait.

Everything was so fresh and yummy :) The bay breeze heightened our appetites and we truly enjoyed our meal :D
I wasn't able to take note of the price of each dish because my brother-in-law footed the bill. (Thank you soooooo much!) He said that he paid a little less than Php 1,500 for everything and we were 7 in the group.
With the fresh seafood at absolutely fantastic prices, we are definitely taking another road trip back and have another wonderful meal at Silangang Nayon!
