Trending of restaurant ambiance here in Bukidnon seem like in a "Native Accent" or in a "Filipino Tribal Accent". This is probably because, Bukidnon is a home of highlanders, cowboys, farmers, sugar planters, cattle, hog and poultry raisers and a lot more, that Bukidnon could offer. Each one of us has different choices when it comes to taste in food but most especially, if you are tourists, you would wander where to eat that offers unique and different from your place, especially ambiance. Sometimes, there are similar one in your place but still once we travel, most commonly, we would always like to find a different one.
Different concepts of restaurant accent would somehow attracts diners.
Like in this newly opened restaurant here in Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, Philippines. The owner named and called it as LAGKAW. I would say that this name is unique today since we are now in a modern world. But a name like this somehow emerges in food industry especially if it is in a Filipino Tribal Accent.
This restaurant was just opened last October 18, 2010 or barely more than a month ago as of date of this review. Personally, this is my kind of choices. An open-cottages restaurant with an accent of green environment. Just like Jack Ridge in Davao, Inilog, Panagatan and Lantaw in Cagayan de Oro City, they have an appropriate restaurant accent matched with their respective names.
Lagkaw means a "Bahay Kubo". It's a Cebuano old language. We took our afternoon heavy snacks here during one of our travels in Southern Bukidnon, last time, ----after we were finished with our fieldwork in Quezon, Maramag and Don Carlos area. So, that was Thursday afternoon. While waiting with our orders, I took some snapshots in the area.

Together with other fieldmen, we ordered 1 kilo of native lechon.....with 2 rice each
By the way, Lagkaw is a fastfood restaurant for now. Per interview with the in-charge, Ms. Irish, they would eventually go with a short orders menu like in "Pinutos sa Kanto" in Manolo Fortich.
During this yuletide season. Everyone seems like craving to eat lechon again. So, just a reminder and tips for you,
- Check first your BP before you eat meat in this season.
- Make an appointment with your doctor if you have history of hypertension
- Eat just enough with your limit.
- If ever, go for vegetable diet
- Eat plenty of fruits
- Water is always one of the best therapy to drain your body toxins, drink plenty of it.
- Exercise should also be one of the routines.
Lagkaw is also open for birtday occasions and other occasions on per appointment basis. Here is their contact number just in case you have some queries and look for Ms. Irish Estrada-the restaurant manager with contact No. 0916-664-6868. This simple restaurant is owned by the Jumalons of Malaybalay City.
