I heard of the place while watching Bizarre Foods and wanted to try it myself. Now that I've tried it I know that they really are that good with food. We tried the Croc Adobo and of course the famous Tamilok (ordered the breaded one) which were surprisingly good. Definitely worth visiting!

I love their sisig, laing and inihaw na pusit which is kinda sweet because it is fresh. The servings are quite big; good thing we brought our appetite. Nope, we didn't try tamilok even if it is one of their signature dishes. I heard it is interesting though.

The place is okay. The food is okay too but it's a bit expensive. Like the crocodile sisig, it costs around 370 but the serving is scanty. Their calamares was breaded a little too much. Their chicharon bulaklak tastes good but the serving is unbelievably scanty too.

the idea of having a variety of food in your menu is what attracts my family to come and see you and we didn't regret it.

A very famous resto in Puerto Princesa, so we didn't missed the opportunity to try what's in the menu. The servings are ok, mostly good for two persons. The price is also ok, so-so. We tried the tamilok but we were never brave enough to try the crocodile meat. There's a wide screen provided for some viewing and a resto... More

My group wasn't adventurous enough to try the tamilok and the crocodile dishes but even when we stuck to the safe fare, the food was goooood. Must try the eggplant ensalada. It had an excellent smoky flavor that we all loved!

If you have no place to go or are just in town for a few nights, Kinabuch is a place to go. Don't get me wrong, they have good food but not great food that you cannot get in Manila. For the foreigners then this is one place to go.
