A Boracay Feast: Eat, Drink, Party
There are Sbarro, Paraiso Grill, Dulcinea situated inside the said food complex but the restaurant that really caught our cravings was the Golden Cowrie.
And here’s our food, affordable and tasty. What’s more good about this restaurant is their unlimited serving of rice. You may check their menu on this link.
If you are really looking for a cheap place to eat but not sacrificing the food quality or taste, then head to Smoke which is situated in one of the alleys in D*Mall. It was our first day, we were looking for a place to eat inside D*Mall area but every restaurants seems not to be appealing to us. My friends wanted a new one that can’t be found in the metro and so I eagerly searched for one until I remembered I passed by on this restaurant before when I was looking for some souvenir items. So, I went inside the alley nearby Andok’s and there I found what I was looking for, Smoke Restaurant.
It was jam packed with diners as it was lunch time when we came in. It was only a small area where only about 20 persons can dine in. They offers Filipino comfort food like sizzling dishes and other rice meals. So for us not to wait much longer, we placed our orders. Each meals cost about PHP 100.00 to PHP 200.00, very affordable.
After about half an hour, we were able to have our seats and then a few minutes after, our orders came. I wasn’t able to take photos of all the food we had since I was already tired then but here are some of the meals that we had eaten.
Two more things that one should never missed when in Boracay are buffet by the beach and ‘Paluto’ sa D*Talipapa. Since I’m over with buffet already, I chose the latter for our group dinner.
D*Talipapa can be compared to Metro Manila’s Dampa wherein you have to buy raw food and ingredients from the market and have it cooked in one of the restaurants situated in the area.
D*Talipapa is a cheap place to eat specially when you are craving for sea food. On this public market, you can also buy cheaper souvenir items, shirts and some beach stuff.
Boracay is definitely one of the places that will never run out of options when it comes to food. There are tons of restaurants and food stalls in the area, from affordable to expensive ones.
When traveling, one thing that I always set in mind is not to stint myself most especially when it comes to food. If my budget can still permit to spend then I spend. Some times we have to treat ourselves. One of the restaurants that caught me and my best friend’s attention the first time that we’ve been here is Aria Cucina Italiana, which is situated at the beachfront of the D*Mall.
But due to budget hesitation back then we weren’t able to try it so when we had the chance to be in Boracay again we ensure not to miss it anymore. On our last night, we had our dinner at Aria (for short) and indulged to their Italian specialties. We had pizzas and pastas.
They say that a beach getaway in Boracay wouldn’t be complete without sipping into that famous Jonah’s Fruit Shake. Do I need to say more about this popular fruit shake? Well, Jonah’s fruit shake is popular here. Some enjoys it but I find it ordinary. Nonetheless, I always end up buying one whenever I had a visit here. Because of a friend, I ordered one of its shake that has rum on it. It’s a rave so I guess it shouldn’t be missed. 🙂
Aside from fruit shakes, the restaurant also offers snacks, desserts, pasta and so on. We had some fruit crepes when we dined in on our first day. We were really hungry so we were able to finish all of them but truthfully, the crepes weren’t that outstanding; not even that good for us.
After indulging ourselves into different cravings and food raves in Boracay, the best way to end our night here is to party. One of the best area that I really enjoy visiting for a party is Club Paraw.
It was a great, fun and awesome night of dancing, drinking and partying with my friends. One of the best that I had. Indeed, it is true that when in Boracay bringing of friends are better than of family, well at least for this barkada getaway. ‘Till the next getaway, how about this summer? 🙂
