Simplicity is the name of the culinary game here. Whether it's meat or seafood, you can't go wrong with the eateries outlined below. Did we mention that the price point is pocket-friendly? You know what that means - more yummy in your belly.
Baler Surfer Grill. Easily spotted because of the outlandish VW beetle that has its engine compartment converted as a grilling station. Yes, you heard it right. Car grillin' for your char-grilled chows. Must-not-miss is their Bulalo BBQ. Come early as this place is extremely popular and you don't want to arrive there only to find out that food has run out.
Location: Buton St.
Gerry Shan's Place. This is where you go when you need to fix your hanger (hunger/anger) stat. Cheap, buffet for lunch and dinner. No frills, simple menu of familiar dishes. Enough said.
Location: Quezon Street, Barangay 2
Kusina Luntian. If you are a fan of Binalot-style meals (rice meals with your choice of protein, all wrapped in banana leaves), then this place is for you. Post-surf, this is the best place to fill that tummy. Or if you want to pack your meals for the waterfalls, then get your meals here and have a picnic at your next location.
Location: Alley 1, Dela Rosa Street
Yellow Fin Bar and Grill. If your idea of winding down an action-packed day is to share grilled food and booze with your friends, then you may want to try Yellow Fin Bar and Grill. This place is very popular, getting a seat may be a challenge. Go here BEFORE you are hungry as the wait can test the patience of a saint. Must-try: grilled yellow fin, grilled liempo washed down with local beers
Location: Sabang beach
Thelma's Kitchenette. Good for big groups. Apart from the usual suspects, they also serve other dishes not found on other popular local restaurants like ginataang alimango (crabs cooked in coconut cream) and fried frogs. One of the better eateries to serve ensaladang pakô (fiddle fern salad). They also serve halu-halo.
