Being isolated from the restaurants in the center, Viet Ville may seem to be a stretch of your Puerto Princesa stay. But just because it offers Vietnamese cuisine is enough reason why you should pay the place a visit. We had the chance to go there on an off-peak time so it wasn't crowded and the atmosphere was so serene.... More

we had our first dinner here as it was the closest to the B&B. I like the sinigang because it taste different that than of what we usually had. its more of sweet sinigang. the waiter said its the authentic Vietnamese dish. he also said that they grow most of the ingredients to help sustain the community. One problem is... More

Ordered their famous chaolong but was disappointed because it was not hot... it was luke warm. The chili sauce also has a fly in its container which we called their attention to. They replaced it immediately. They have this pork roast sandwich which tasted so good. The only good thing that we ordered.

Perhaps the biggest legacy of the Vietnamese boat-people who came to Palawan during the Viet Nam war in the 1970s is the Vietnamese Village. Even when majority of the Vietnamese families already left Palawan, the imprint of good 'ol Vietnamese cuisine still lingers in the village's restaurant.

The place is really run down and has a ghost town feel to it, but don't overlook the place just because of that. Has the most amazing food there! Fresh baked french bread, still warm from the over, with simple but delicious food... tofu sinigang, with garlic rice, stir fried kangkong, chicken spring rolls (amazing crispy rolls with tender juicy...

The restaurant itself sits in front of a former Vietnamese refugee camp. If youre looking for authentic Vietnamese people to talk to I'm afraid most were repatriated back to Vietnam (I was told they didnt want to go back) years ago so I was a bit disappointed while strolling at the back and looking at empty houses and a half...

“Famous Chao Long” This is supposedly a small Vietnamese community of 1,500 inhabitants when the village was set up in 1996. Aside from the houses they have a noodle factory, two French bread bakeries, Catholic and Protestant churches and a Buddhist temple. Now, there’s only about ten families here. This used to be a tourist attraction; providing a taste of... More

...but the food is still good! Used to be a camp for Vietnamese refugees (actually, one of several), but now only a couple of families have decided to stay. Everyone else migrated to the States and Canada. Not much to see now, but the food is worth the extra trip.

we stayed at Villa Saturnina near Honda Bay wharf, and were looking for nearby restaurants.. im glad we were pointed to Viet Ville. Housed in what used to be a community of vietnamese boat refugees, this restaurant had an nice local ambience. Ask for their green-tea iced drink -- its really refreshing and yummy. We had Goi Cuon (fresh spring... More
