Balwarte ni Alfredo: The famous Antique House and Diner in Balamban

The municipality of Balamban in the province of Cebu is becoming more popular as it offers new and interesting tourist attractions. Buwakan ni Alejandra, West 35 Eco Park, JVR Island in the Sky, Florentino’s a.k.a. “the little Tagaytay of Cebu”, and Adventure Cafe are some of the famous spots you can find in Balamban. But hey, it doesn’t stop there!

We have discovered a new tambayan where you can just chill and dine with your friends all day and night long! Plus, you can get to eat the Cebu City’s famous street food at an affordable price! Introducing, the newest stop-over in Balamban – the D’ Village Antique House and Diner, now popularly known as Balwarte ni Alfredo, that should be included in your to-visit list.


This antique house was built many years ago and it showcases various prehistoric artifacts that were bought and collected from different places outside the country, mostly from Indonesia.

If you wish to stay over-night and experience sleeping on a breezy night, you can setup your own tent WITHOUT charge fee (as of this writing). The “space” is on first come, first serve basis though.


 The best part? They serve delicious street food and lutong-bahay dishes at an affordable price — from breakfast to lunch and dinner! You can definitely reward yourself with good food here after strolling around Balamban. Siomai sa Tisa, grilled chicken, pork barbecue, tempura and squid balls are just some of the food they serve. They are also considering to serve halo-halo and other desserts soon.

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
