Vjandep is very famous bakeshop selling delicacies to take home as pasalubong. The most famous being the pastel. A box of 12 costs a little over P100 only. Am not so keen on sweets so a piece of it is enough for me already. But it is quite tasty. At the airport, I found plenty of people carrying boxes of this goodies. There are also other treats to choose from aside from pastel such as cheese stick.
Favorite Dish: Sweet tasty pastel
You can order food & eat at White Island. The food here is cheap. Filipino viands with rice good for 5 pax cost P300+ only. We ordered fish, ampalaya & rice plus cold drinks. Better come here early & have breakfast at the island.
Favorite Dish: Filipino dishes simple but tasty.
Paras Restaurant offers great affordable food. Food cost is average & not pricey at all. We ate here 2-3 times during our stay in Camiguin Island. There's a variety of dishes to choose from in their menu. Am satisfied with everything we ordered.
Favorite Dish: Everything we ordered is satisfactory.
coron restaurant lies in the town proper of mambajao, camiguin. non rated restaurant with a top-rated food. they have the best mouth-watering chickenlicious inasal. though its ambiance is just a typical upgraded carinderia the place is clean... me and my friends tempted to eat with our hands without worrying where to wash after as they have clean and complete washroom stuff...recommended to try..
Favorite Dish: chicken inasal, pork bbq and the soup...yes the soup...
To be honest, I was lured more to Luna’s by the prospect of free wi-fi internet while I ate, but since they have a brick wood fireplace to make their pizzas, I thought I’d give it a try. The pizzas are tasty, the crust authentic and the wait staff were pleasant, thoughtful and attentive. The setting is very nice with both indoor and al fresco options available.
This place is a bit off the beaten track at the furthest edge of the northern beach resorts. But pay the 7 pesos and take a multi-cab to check it out. You won’t be disappointed. The locals have already figured this out and it has become a bit of a hot spot… even on a Thursday night.
By the way, the wi-fi did NOT work but the pizza did.
Favorite Dish: The pizza
For our lunch on our first day, our driver, kuya frank brought us to Sto nino cold springs where in you can order whichever your heart desires and they will cook it for you. We ordered 1K liempo, 1K grilled fish and 1K tinolang manok and 7 fresh bukos all for 700Php!!!
We had dinner at Paradiso Resto-Bar, an italian-owned restaurant in Mambajao. The place is dark and has lots and lots and lots of mosquitos. We had to wait about 45 minutes for them to serve the pizza then 15 minutes for the pasta and then another 15 minutes for our antipasti. Weird coz they served the antipasti after the main course! hahaha... we also tried their tiramisu for dessert. the service was really really really slow considering we're the only customers they have. despite the long wait, the pasta was excellent specially their cream-based fetuccines.
We also dropped by J&A Fishpen for lunch before heading to Mantigue Island. Iv read a lot nof nice things about J&A fishpen though sadly, it didnt meet up to my expectations. We had chili crabs which was good. We also had garlic shrimps which looked and tasted like it was cooked 2 days ago and have been reheated several times. We also ordered tanguigue steak which should've been named fish jerky since it was soooooooooooo tough!!! We barely touched it. All in all, we paid almost 3K for a not so pleasant meal.
We had our dinner in Camiguin at Vjandep restaurant. Since its our last day, we ordered everything we can think of - chicken curry, sinigang na baboy, sizzling squid and crispy pata. We had to wait for around 30 minutes for our food to be served but we enjoyed it immensely since the food was grrreeeaaaatttt. its our best meal in camiguin! all for 900Php including drinks!
Food. I loved the food! You have to chose on what they will cook. All seafoods are fresh. Ambiance is great! Just refer to the picture in this tip. Dining in was unexpected! Though, it was a bit difficult to communicate because people here are speaking in their local dialect, bisaya. Do not worry if you are in a hurry, they serve really fast!:)
It only cost us less than PHP400 for a great experience. It was not easy going out because we were so full!
Favorite Dish: Adobong Clams!
don't ever miss this place when you are in camiguin. their servings are very generous, the rice they serve is of top quality. everything is served smoking hot. we tried sisig, pansit, fried chicken, pork sinigang, chopsuey, spring roll lumpia. mmm all delectable. each plateful will tell you that your money gets its worth. when we tried the place the first time for our dinner, everyone promised to come back the next day. that's how we became an instant fan of vjandep. softdrinks included, we only paid 60 pesos each after dividing the group bill.
The place is an old house and was converted to this restaurant. That is why, the ambiance is very homey. It's a quiet place to spend after a whole day of travelling around Camiguin. I have read that the place is owned by an Italian who decided to live there.
Favorite Dish: Love their pizza! Authentic thin crust pizza! Different flavors are available, Paradiso Pizza is their best-seller.
authentic italian food at a very reasonable price, warm and accommodating owner/chef, an italian from Naples, he will go out of his way to give you what you like, he doesn't overprice, restaurant ambience is so relaxed and welcoming, so inviting, the name itself calls out to you......i owe it to the chef to recommend his restaurant here....
Favorite Dish: authentic gelato and "pick me up" TIRAMISU of course = dessert at 2 USD or less each, hefty serving believe me, chef vincenzo can whip up an italian meal not on the menu, as long as he has the ingredients, the fact that the meal was prepared with gusto makes it even more enticing
This place is very close to the Benoni port. You can ask a motorela to take you to the place for P10/person.
The structures/dining area are set on water which I find relaxing and peaceful. They serve seafood and some common Filipino dishes. We were there late in the afternoon and they ran out of most fish choices. We ordered the one available as tinola. It's good.
I find the garlic fried shrimps (really small ones) to be overpriced at P230. The others are reasonable.
Great fresh seafoods! Best place to have lunch, you'll feel like eating on a raft in the middle of a fish pond. I loved watching the manta rays in their pond while we were waiting for our meal.
Favorite Dish: Crabs & shrimps!
it is a floating restaurant..overlooking the sea...5 mins drive from benoni port...
Favorite Dish: we tried their chili crabs and calamares thou its not what i expected but its good!!!
Franco the concierge cum cook of Enigmata cooks a mean chicken curry. Also try the spicy chicken, yum!
Favorite Dish: Chicken curry, hot chocolate, iced lemon tea
