Yes, you’re in the right place. You’re not lost!
Mama Auring Food Garden is located at Katalbas Compound just behind the Barangay Hall of Barangay Old Sagay, Sagay City, Negros Occidental.
If it’s your first time to visit the restaurant, you’ll be passing through a house and you’ll see families inside the compound hanging out around the area.
The restaurant is not just your ordinary hole-in-the-wall.
There are many food options on their menu. If you love seafoods, this is the place to go when in Sagay.
You can order crabs, shells, shrimps, and not just seafoods but as well as vegetables and other dishes. I was not able to take a photo of all the food on our table as everyone was already digging in.
Truly it’s a place for families and friends to eat, enjoy and relax!
P.S. Take this sign seriously! LOL
