Never visit Bacolod alone. Food sharing with food lovers is the best way to go on a food trip such as this. This is a city surrounded by haciendas owning hectares and hectares of sugar cane. Muscovado, the unrefined sugar or molasses sugar can be inhaled in sugar mills. Intoxicating! At the end of the day, we were dancing on the street. No wonder Bacolod is the City of Smiles.
