It was July 24, 2015, Friday when my colleague grabbed me to a ride to Taguanao, Indahag, Cagayan de Oro City. Apparently, that day is the opening of Zordz Restobar, an all-in-one recreational spot for restaurant, KTV Bar, function rooms, coffee shop, mini bar and acoustic band venue.
Engr. Roger T. Villazorda Jr. is the owner of Zordz Restobar. The name Zordz came from the third syllable of his surname. He admitted that his classmates back in college used to call him “Zordz” as well and it is a thought that made it appealing to him.
He put this restobar into existence in the aim of providing diners with an area complete with everything. He want the idea that when a customer enter his place, it is too complete that when a dire need of other relaxing services arise, the hunting for other places is not necessary at all.
He designed this restobar himself. He made it creative and unique in terms of design and concept. Moreover, the restobar is placed on a hillside, just beside the main crossing going to the Cagayan de Oro International Convention Center. He also appreciated that sitio like Taguanao, though seems isolated from the city is still inside the city where individuals are looking forward for a relaxation after an entire day of busy schedules, pressuring work and stressful traffic.
The best thing he saw in this seems-isolated place is it is more like a “province within the city.” Visitors can smell the fresh air upon having their way to the place. There are also a lot of natural greens which makes Zordz Restobar more relaxing and a perfect venue for both day and night time hangout.
In Zordz, everyone can have a taste of Filipino food varieties such as Bulalo, Crispy Pata, Sizzling Squid, Beef Stew, Camaron Rebosado, Pork Spareribs, Kinilaw Malasugue and several others. They also offer variety of foreign wines which customers will surely enjoy. Moreover, this food haven also do catering services on all occasions.
Engr. Villazorda said that he is confident on the direction he set for this business for before putting everything up, a feasibility study has been done, and even the area was reviewed. He is also proud of the high-level training provided to their manpower. He stressed that one important thing he taught to his people is to give value to the customers for Zordz Restobar is all about determining what makes people come back and offer those to make them come back in the place.
The restobar ensures 24-hours security and delightful ambiance.
Everyone can visit this paradise located at Crossing Convention Center, Taguanao, Cagayan de Oro City. It operates from Monday to Sunday, 10AM to 12 midnight.
