For our first Elbi foodtrip recommendation we have this Pinikas Meal from Elbi Balay. If you’re around Los Banos or having a food trip around Laguna, you may want to try this!
✨This is one of Elbi Balay’s bestsellers that you may want to include in your ElBi (Los Baños) food trip list!
Elbi Balay started during the height of the pandemic (2020) and remained to be one of the go-to places and food-delivery choices.
✨ Pinikas is a dried fish imported from Cebu and this silog is best eaten quickly to savor the crunchiness and is best paired with spicy vinegar.
As of writing it is currently priced at: P80 (Silog meal), 190 for platter (good for 3-4 people).
*Prices and availability are subject to change without notice
Worth it and worth a lot of repeats.
Parking Availability and Tips:
The Robinson’s Los Banos underground parking would be the best parking choice for those who are bringing their vehicles.
They don’t always have the Pinikas meal so you can reach them first in case you want to try this meal.
This is best paired with the sisig from Hungry U (another store in the same food park).
Has Pet-Friendly Area
Elbi Balay offers a variety of hearty creative Filipino takes on your early breakfast dishes. They also offer burger choices in case you’re not in for a rice meal.
Their platter which only costs P190 is enough to be shared by 2-3 people! What a steal! This is the reason why we are giving the Elbi Balay’s Pinikas meal as a Lasang Sulit at Super Uber Uulit.
My husband and I are even able to share the Pinikas meal even if we only get the single meal (P90). Yes! The Pinikas meal is enough to be shared we even pair it with a sisig meal from another food stall just across Elbi Balay.
In case you want to add Elbi Balay for your next food trip around Laguna, we recommend that you go together with a group so have a taste of their different offerings!
Elbi Balay’s Pinikas Meal is best eaten after serving since they make sure that it’s served fresh and hot. Their dried fish is not the usual salty dried version that our mothers loved to cook at home.
This is just one of the hidden food gems included in our first Los Banos food trip guide, it would be nice if you’d check out the rest of the list!
Elbi Balay only has one branch and it’s located in a quaint food park named Kalye Ekis.
Another best-seller we’ve tried is their Beef Salpicao which is also one of the most loved choices from Elbi Balay. Below we have compiled all the details of Elbi Balay in case you want to contact and find them.
