Good Food, Nice Ambiance… Bacolod City‘s Café Uma
(Watch out for an update of this post, Cafe Uma has transferred to their new location…coming soon )
Good food, nice ambiance. That’s what you get when you visit Café Uma . Located right beside L Fisher Hotel, Bacolod City. Café Uma is a place where one would want to stay and relaxed with friends while enjoying a delectable Asian and Western Cafe Cuisines.
Upon entering the place, you would know exactly that you are in Negros. To the right side of the café is a collage of an old magazine pages telling stories about Negros. Paintings of Sacadas (Sugar cane workers) and wooden miniature of steam locomotive adorned the place.

A steam locomotive or Iron Dinosaur is a railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine. It’s interesting to note that these locomotives were used to transport sugarcane to the Sugar Centrals. Capiz Chandeliers of Hacienda Crafts (a handicraft company also owned by the owners) add drama to the place.

Owned and operated by Joey and Ina Gaston, Café Uma was originally located in one corner of the Negros Showroom on Lacson Street. They moved later to this new location to give their customers a more comfortable and bigger space.
Amongst my early favorite at Café Uma’s was its sausages served in large bowls with greens and mashed potato. Lately, they had expanded their menu and I had tasted a few of it.
Here’s my new discoveries and an addition to my favorites at Café Uma:
CAFÉ UMA SPECIAL PASTA ,served with Spaghetti Pesto Cream Sauce, Bacon Cubes, Smoked Salmon
TRADITIONAL FRENCH ONION SOUP, an original recipe of Monsignor Gaston , served with Crouton and gruyere cheese.
My gastronomic experience ended with this cup of cappuccino.
