Recognized as the oldest house in Albay, Balay Cena Una has become more than just a restaurant as it is now regarded as a tourist destination in Bicol region. Established as early as 1913, Balay Cena Una (a play on Tagalog world “sinauna” which means ancient), is a Filipino restaurant that serves and promotes the rich culinary culture of Bicol province. Previously an ancestral house, Balay Cena Una has been restored into an elegant restaurant in 2005. This former ancestral house still retained its traditional features, still looking like a Filipino house with its native architectural style. Upon entering the place, it’s like you are entering a Filipino home set about more than 50 years ago. The dimly-lit halls, wooden interiors, and antique collections neatly displayed in the two-storey house totally make it an ideal place to spend a great dining experience when in Bicol. Dining in Balay Cena Una is really a highly-recommended thing to do in Albay. Aside from its food, it’s worth the visit as you will also learn a lot about the province’s history. Remnants from the Japanese occupation way back 1945 are seen through bullet holes you can find in the place. According to the owner, the place was formerly used as a Japanese garrison in the World War II. Even after all these years, it still stood strong, making it a place where history and gastronomical finds mix.
