The place has been featured several times... More

I really enjoyed and admired UGU's pottery art. Of course I had to purchase a couple for myself and some to give as gifts. What made this visit a real treat is having lunch at his restaurant --- very flavorful Filipino provincial dishes served in his pottery and surrounded by UGU's tropical gardens.

the place is difficult to locate since it doesnt bear signages for directions. only a few locals are familiar with the pottery. our biggest mistake was dropping in past lunchtime sans a reservation (at least 24 hrs ahead of time) since they dont prepare without confirmed reservations. the pots are artworks and quite pricey.

It's located inside a subdivision and to get there, you have go to the side streets of Tiaong, Quezon. You need to trust Google Maps or Waze for this since when we went there, there were no signs pointing to the direction. Perhaps because it was election season and most of the walls and electrical poles were covered with campaign... More

On your way to Lucena province in south of Manila just a town after the busy streets of San Pablo City,you reach Tiaong.It's no longer as traffic but you'll feel a "home" atmosphere the coconut trees on both sides of the road seem to give one visual effect of wilderness.The nipa huts on the road side are inviting enough for...

We were fortunate to have been given this pottery lesson by the owner Ugu Bigyan. His pottery classes are normally held from February to May every year. Thanks UGU for this very enriching experience! He showed us the three basic techniques of pottery making: rolling pin method, coiling method and of course the basic wheel method. The course he offers... More

Initially, our idea is to take a look at the pottery made by Ugu Bigyan but we were lucky enough to be squeezed in the lunch. The food was tremendously great, especially the pako salad! We barely finished all the food served for us two.

This sure is a very nice place to go to unwind. I had been here once before - a few years ago and I recall leaving this place feeling better. My stomach was full, too and so did my eyes. My other senses were likewise teased. My wallet did get damaged. I seriously hope that many people get a chance... More
