The New Boracay—What’s in & What’s out?

Boracay Day 4-102.jpg

We love the new Boracay!

At one time we thought Boracay was hopeless, but, thanks to the government’s will, it was able to remove all the unsustainable activities and fix the sewage treatment plant compliance after the 6-month closure of the island.

People focus too much on what’s out, but I’m so excited about what’s in…

The SPIDER HOUSE Boracay Sunset Session! (A REVIEW)

Bora 2

Spider House Boracay used to be one of the island's best-kept secrets, but through word-of-mouth, the place has become very popular. It used to be just a family residence, but tourists kept stumbling upon the place, so the owners decided to open it to the public.

The resort is located at Diniwid Beach, a 30-minute walk from White Beach. It is a far cry from the busy Station 1 of Boracay; this place is meant for relaxation. Most vacationers come here to enjoy a different view of the Boracay sunset.

Here’s what we loved at Spider House…

HOBBIT TAVERN: Dining with the Happiest Hobbits in Boracay!

SNY03661

Hobbit Tavern is a specialty restaurant serving a wide array of international dishes at D'Mall in Boracay. Formerly known as The Hobbit House, it is now under the management of Freddie and Karen Elizalde, and Virgilio and Jeanette Sacdalan of Boracay Kelana Food Corp.

The Hobbit Tavern is most popular for their "Hobbit" waiters, based on the popular characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s "Lord of the Rings." Most of these hobbits have been working at the tavern for years already and have a good grasp of attending to customers' requests, and are always ready to pose for a picture or two with the guests.

We tried their bestsellers and here's what we loved…

LANTERNA Boracay: Private Home Dining with the Island’s Best Italian Chef! (REVIEW)

Two Awesome Day at The Lind Boracay -102.jpg

LANTERNA is the bed & breakfast and private restaurant of Italian Chef Luigi and his wife Gladis Barbolla on the island of Boracay. Chef Luigi was actually one of the first Italians to settle in Boracay in the early 80’s and is regarded to this day as one of the island’s best chefs in his native cuisine. The private home dining restaurant serves Italian home cooking with everything made from scratch using sustainable ingredients. 

It is considered as a best kept secret among locals and their guests because of its simple yet authentic Boracay Island experience, from the ambiance to the food and island hospitality.

If you’re not staying in Laterna, you can still organize a private home dining for a group of 8-10 people. Here’s what to expect…

SUBO BORACAY: Have you tried Reconstructed Filipino Food by Chef Jian Sacdalan?!

oap-subo-9522

SUBO is a Filipino restaurant serving reconstructed Filipino food by Chef-Owner Jian Sacdalan, located along Calle Remedios in Station 3, Boracay. Former chef Sunny de Ocampo may have moved on to other projects, but the Subo concept lives on in the island.

The design and interiors are unlike any of the restaurants I’ve seen in Boracay. It's not your typical kanin sa kaldero-sabaw sa palayok kind of Filipino restaurant. Subo takes inspiration from well-known Filipino dishes and serves them in not-so-familiar ways. 

Here’s what to expect at Subo Boracay…

SUNNY SIDE CAFÉ BORACAY: Best All-Day Breakfast on the Island?!

Sunny Side Café is located along the white beach of Station 3 Boracay. Famous for their all-day breakfast menu, they specialize in comfort food and contemporary breakfast dishes that are never boring!

We love their concept of twisting classic breakfast favorites such as their Ube & Cereal Milk Pancakes, Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese, and Sunny Side Café Champorado (made with Malagos Chocolate and topped with caramel ice cream, mango, and candied bacon).

They are the only restaurant on the island serving specialty coffee. The dishes are all made from scratch–from their bacon, chorizo, and soups, to their bread and pastries that are freshly-baked in-house, every day!

Here’s what to expect at Sunny Side Café…

Cha Cha's

The best part is that Chef Kalel Chan of Raintree restaurants along with Chef Romy Aumentado and Chef Gilbert Ramos love to evolve and play, around with the menu by changing it six times a week, so there’s always something new to look forward to before starting the day.

CHA CHA’S beach cafe is located inside locally owned Coast Boutique Hotel along station 2 of the vibrant Boracay Island. Besides the awesome beachfront view, the menu and interiors compliment the tropical fun beach vibe.

DOS MESTIZOS Boracay: Is this Spanish-Filipino Heritage Restaurant Still Good?

dosmes11

Dos Mestizos is a family run restaurant that opened its doors nearly 13 years ago and was the brain child of Jose Carlos Remedios aka Binggoy. It started out as your typical mom and pop shop and over the years it has evolved into one of Boracay's best and well-known establishments.  

The secret to Dos Mestizos success is in the simplicity of its menu.  Basic, Rustic, and straight to the point, the culinary heritage of Mestizo cuisine is perfectly preserved in every dish.  

From Tapas to Paella, the menu incorporates fresh ingredients that are mostly sourced locally. Locals and foreigners visiting Boracay flock to Dos Mestizos for these very reasons.

(Mestizo is a term in the Philippines used to describe people of Spanish heritage.)
