Puerto Princessa in Palawan Philippines is surely an adventure! Not only with its rich natural attractions, the city has matured and grew in its business sense as well as keeping the quality of service and top class hospitality to both local & foreign tourists. Indeed, the country is on its way to improving & developing world class tourism.
Kinabuch's restaurant was an interesting stop. A famous restaurant & bar in one with very attractive & spacious bamboo inspired huts with cozy wooden huge tables and many wall photos adorning the walls showcasing the pride of Palawan.
Famous delicacy is the Croc sisig (minced crocodile meat with lots of chili & local spices placed on a sizzling plate & served by a friendly waiter is a real treat! The visit is not complete without including TAMILOK on your meal order.
Tamilok is a mangrove worm that is not exactly a worm. Even if it looks like one, it is actually a mangrove-boring mollusk. This transparent, slimy, worm-like delicacy has boosted the local livelihood of the residents. To a newcomer, a bowl full of tamilok is not a very welcoming sight, but don't judge the book by its fat, slimy and grayish white cover. It makes for great appetizer (pulutan)and a good match for beer, wine or whisky, especially with the local drink “tuba” (a fermented coco juice) Unfortunately, there is no tuba sold in Kinabuch. This is usually served as an appetizer, which is mixed with a good amount of locally made vinegar. Locals say the authentic tamilok experience is to eat it using your hands, so let go of the fork & all inhibitions! you'll surely go for another serving! By the way, this famous delicacies are in demand in Kinabuch's so, if you wanted to be sure to have it in your menu, it would be helpful to call & get a reservation.
......it's always more FUN in the Philippines!! ❤
