Our server was... More

Really liked the food here! It's not everywhere you can eat crocodile sisig. If you're still hungry, try the coconut flan! Amazing!

We had dinner here as it was walking distance from our hotel. The place has grown 5 times bigger from my last visit years ago. Their menu is a hearty mix of local, Western, seafood, grilled meats. Makes one wonder how they control the inventory with such a big mix. The place was filled with people. They had a big... More

We were in for having the must eats in Palawan and we had both our fills for the very fresh tamilok (mangrove wood worms) and the crocodile sisig (sizzling minced croc meat). Their Bulalo was good to and so was their refreshing unique shakes. The lechon kawali was the bomb! Price was not so bad for the delicious dishes.

The place had open space with plenty of tables and plenty of parking. We ordered different food. Some ordered exotic food like Crocodile Sisig and Tamilok (wood worms). I ordered Bulalo and it was not as good as the other Bulalo I tasted. Food was good but not great.

Whenever I'm in Puerto Princesa, I always make it a point to dine at Kinabuch. After a long flight or a whole day of exploring and touring, a hot bowl of their bulalo, paired with anything off the menu, truly gives me comfort. Make Kinabuch a must in your itinerary.
