Try the "Paluto"
When we arrive in Bantayan, we asked the locals there on where we can have our food "Paluto"..Luckily, the person we asked caters that. We were'nt able to have our dinner food for "Paluto", the local said that there are no more fresh fish available in the nearby market. So the following day, as early as 9am, they knocked at our house and showed us the fish that they bought. For 500php, we have a very sumptous lunch! Which includes, sweet and sour fish, grilled fish, Inihaw na talong with kamatis and Adobong Squid! The food was placed in a basket which includes some plates and fork..
Favorite Dish: Any fish recipe!
Maia's Restaurant: One reason to go to Bantayan: Food at Maia's
The menu has enough varieties. We were able to try Chicken with mango juice, Grilled Shrimps, Sizzling squid, Chicken curry with Mango, American Breakfast, Filipino breakfast, Buko Shake, Mango Shake and garlic rice. They are all very good except for the sizzling squid coz I'm not used to sizzling squid with sauce. But the garlic rice is exceptionally good and I'd say that it is the best I have tasted ever!!
Favorite Dish: Garlic rice is the best. Of course it has garlics, with some spices and it has that buttery taste that it makes it exceptionally good.
