More Fun in the Philippines

We recommend five restaurants around the Philippines where you can sample some of the best Filipino dishes.

Ka Lui’s

(kah-LOO-wees)

369 Rizal Ave., Puerto Princesa City, Palawan

After a tour of the world-renowned Subterranean River, have lunch or early dinner at Puerto Princesa’s best-known grill restaurant. They serve tasty seafood fare while you lounge on throw pillows. And you can’t go wrong with their lobsters. www.kaluirestaurant.com

 

Abe

(AH-beh)

Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Metro Manila

Famous restaurateur Larry Cruz named this place in honor of his father, whose memorabilia serve as the place’s decorative accents. They serve such innovative dishes like lamb adobo (stewed in vinegar and soy sauce) with popped garlic, binukadkad na (butterfly style) crispy pla-pla or tilapia, and bamboo rice with shrimp and mushroom. http://ljcrestaurants.com.ph/abe/

 

Chocolate de Batirol

(cho-co-LAH-te de BAH-tirol)

Igorot Garden, Gate 2, Camp John Hay, Baguio City

Here, you’ll go on a picnic—at about 4,500 feet above sea level! Simple food is served on tables under the shade of fragrant pine trees. Try their cold batirol called chocolate banana, as well as their traditional blend. chocolatedebatirol@yahoo.com

La Preciosa

Rizal St., Laoag City, Ilocos Norte

Known for the best-tasting Ilocano dishes, La Preciosa honors the recipes by the late Preciosa Ventura-Palma, carried on by her daughter Pamela. Try their bagnet (dried and deep-fried pork) and pinakbet(stewed vegetables seasoned with fish paste). http://lapreciosa-ilocos.com/

 

Café Juanita

Unit WS-2 Burgos Circle, Forbestown Center, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City; tel. +632 403-1952

Its festive atmosphere feels like walking into a party. Vibrant chandeliers are draped in tulle while glass beads hang over brightly set tables. The food is equally worth raving about. Bestsellers include their two-way adobo, kare-kare and bagnet.
