You will see different restaurants here like Mang Inasal & Tilapia 'N Chips. If you're tired of the crowded environment you can try this place because it's somehow far the white beach. You can also purchase the famous biscocho and other delicacies of Boracay in this place as well as souvenirs.

They are a lot of small restaurants that will cook your food they way you want to. You may buy the seafood & meat and other ingredients and pay for the cooking charge or just ask the restaurant staff to buy them for you. Prices are reasonable with "street market" ambiance.

Of course the stalls are small and not air-conditioned but some stuffs can be bought here cheaper.

Besides the fresh sea foods that can be bought somewhere inner, you can order your chosen food to be cooked the way you ordered in this place.

But it is always crowded at near lunch time or dinner time.

D'Talipapa has more stalls selling those knickknacks to take home with you like Shirts, Key Chains, Coin Purse, Summer dresses & Aklano goodies as it boosts of more stalls. There is also a wet market where you can buy your fresh seafoods to have them cooked ( for a fee) at the restaurants that are next to the market. Its not on the main road, but not too far. Just ask the locals, its next to D'MALL in popularity, everyone knows where this is.

D'Talipapa the seafood market is a real heaven for me. You can find almost all kind of seafood here which is freshly catch and still alive. Surrounding this wet market is rows or restaurant providing cooking service for you. Also there are rows of souvenir shops.

Choose whatever you like and bargain with them to get a good price. If you are not sure of the market value, try to offer half of what they offer you.

After buying your seafood, bring them cross the street and find a good restaurant to cook for you. They are good at this, upon seeing what you bought they will immediately tell you what is the best way to cook your seafood. They charge you the cooking service fee and earn your rice/drinks money. If they serve you well and you are happy with your seafood fest, don't forget to give them some tips...

While waiting your seafood cooked you can just cross the street and start your souvenir shopping. This is among the cheapest souvenir market in town. If they serve your food fast enough, you can shop after eating.

Some restaurant are small and they don't have toilet. If you wish to go toilet, tell them and they will bring you to a public toilet nearby. The restaurant I dine in was quiet small and the kitchen is actually on top of the dinning area. The kitchen is connected to dining area trough a small opening which they use a pulley to pull your fresh seafood up and send them down cooked in tray. It's very interesting experience.

A small tips, try not to seat outdoor because the street is too small and the motor vehicle exhaust will spoil the taste of your seafood.
