Each place I had been and every finished plate is an experience to be shared. Bayler View Hotel Restaurant The Bayler View Hotel Restaurant is the first dining place that I experienced Baler food.  It was breakfast.  A bangsilog, a combination of bangus (milkfish), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg).  The food was good and filling.  The presentation was simple yet energetic.  You see, Bayler View Hotel has great energy.  It seems it is the center of this whole Sabang beach.  People are everywhere.  Either they are dining in, walking on the boardwalk, arranging a one-hour surfing lesson on the booth of surfing instructors, or just merely passers-by from the road to the beach.  The energy is here.  Each had...
