- Robert’s Resort’s Jewel Restaurant comes highly recommended by “your” van drivers, after an exciting visit from the
. If at first, I was suspicious, I later found out I didn’t mind the hardsell. The place serves “buffet” meals. But unlike most buffets, platter after platter of food is served at your table – and are constantly replenished if you ask for more! Buffet costs PhP200 per person. We initially thought of ordering per-plate-meals, but the waitress smirked, which even motivated me to REALLY order a la carte. LOL. However, upon checking out the prices (pork or chicken adobo PhP130, lechon kawali PhP150, chopsuey PhP95, mixed vegetables PhP85, coke PhP30), a buffet meal is after all more cost-effective! Your PhP200 already includes the delicious buko (coconut fruit). Sabang Beaches have never been this sumptuous. Burp! Underground River

- Fresh Café is a mix-themed diner that has a restaurant at the 1st floor and a bar at the 2nd. They also serve cakes and pastries for those with sweet tooth. It is located along
Rizal Avenuehalfway between Jollibee to its right and the Provincial Capitol to its left. I enjoyed dining with my friend Elena and her kids, one of whom is a godson. Populating the café with us was a group from the Ophthalmology Department of a city hospital, discussing plans for a postgrad event that they are organizing. It’s really a place where people can hang out, discuss things and enjoy light banter with friends.
- This is my buffet stash from Skylight Hotel’s restaurant. And it’s not exactly my favorite dining experience in the island. None, and I mean not a single entrée enticed me to get more. The embotido tasted bland. Tocino was a chewy piece of ligamentous meat. Even the danggit – which the locals call “lamayo” (dried fish) was bland. The tortang talong (eggplant/aubergines) was too fresh and undercooked – and as I rule, I do not partake anything that’s half-alive and freshly picked from the ground.
