Kinabuch : What Palawan Can Be.

If you've been to Palawan then you have probably visited this famouse restaurant. If you are planning to go here then put Kinabuch in your mist-visit list. I've been to Palawan for numerous number of times (mostly business purpose) and I never fail to visit this restaurant.
This restaurant offers some of your must-try dishes in  the island. From basic home cooked Palawan dishes to the most exotic local cuisine. It's also a nice place to have a couple of beer and relax while breathing the al fresco after a whole day of Island hopping or city tour.
Here's what we had during my visit last August, 2015.

Yang Chow Fried Rice. Umami flavored rice with peas, sausage bits, eggs and lettuce.
Baked Mussels.One of my favorite staple food when it comes to seafood shell dishes.
Lato (Sea Grapes). Another favorite seafood. This sea weed taste really good, specially with tomato and plenty of white onions. Its very common in my hometown as well. Sea grapes is rich in iodine and naturally salty, so no need to dip it to any condiment ( as for me)
Palawan's sea grapes is different from ours (in Isabela), theirs is like a string and a bit long, ours really looks like grapes.
Crocodile Sisig. The chunky meat can no longer be recognized as crocodile. Yes you heard it right! It's made from crocodile meat. Don't worry it's from town's domesticated crocodile. The meat is so chewy and umami.
Tamilok. Another must try delicacy when you go here. Fresh wood from from the trunks of mangroves as explained to me by the locals. It's not accessible as its hard to maintain its freshness so Kinabuch is the place to be when you want to try this.
It takes a whole lots of guts to try this huh! But it's worth it because its reLly delicious. To better describe the taste, it's like eating a fresh oyster.
Guisadong Bihon. The aromatic sesame oil and not so salty taste makes this so delicious.
Leche Flan. For dessert of course. Their version is not that soft as what we are use to... Good thing it's not too sweet as well.
It was once more a fun night at Kinabuch. A place for good food and night out at Puerto Princesa. Thank you for making my visit complete. Yes! City visit will never be complete without visiting this iconic restaurant and trying their dishes of course !
Budget - P150-250/ dish
