If you’re craving for something that is unique in Baybay, D’ Koretor Asian Resto has got you covered—treat yourself in their innovative gastronomic approach in “kabkab” (cassava crisps).
While “kabkab” is a popular Leyteño snack topped with “latik” (sweetened coconut syrup), D’ Koretor has ingeniously used chicken, cabbages and spices creating a new dish called “Chicken Taco” made of “kabkab”. Trust me, their chicken taco is flavorful; a zesty mix of spices and vegetables.
This quaint, open-air restaurant also serve our all-time favorite “halo-halo”, but their version of this dessert was totally beyond my expectation—it’s not your typical halo-halo because they add vegetables like cabbages, sweet corn and diced radish. And yes, you read it right and it’s called “Vegetable Halo-Halo”.
The taste of their “vegetable halo-halo” is unsurprisingly distinctive, including its texture. It looks like a typical “halo-halo” but tastes more likely of a fruit salad with a tangy twist because of the vegetables. Anyhow, I still had a mouthful of it.
The owner of the restaurant is also an event stylist and florist, thus don’t be surprised if the restaurant is embellished with themed accents. D’ Koretor Asian Resto is located at the back of Philippine National Bank (PNB), R. Magsaysay Avenue, Baybay City, Leyte
