Where to Eat in Bolinao

Bolinao, Pangasinan is really very small & very quiet. The air is clean. It is so peaceful & lush with vegetation. There are several caves if you want to dip in the cool waters. The stretch of beach is also clean & very quiet.

However, there is no nightlife whatsoever. Restaurants are open-aired, beside the roads. If you’re looking for excitement & pampering, this is not the place for you, hehe.

For our 3 day stay, we were able to try 3 establishments for our dining experience. We had breakfast at El Pescador, the resort we stayed in.

Their breakfast meals are all priced at 150 php. 
Comes with coffee or a bottle of mineral water,

For lunch, we would venture out & go local. There is a strip of eateries right beside the St. James Parish church which is 402 years old and considered a tourist attraction there.

Talaba 45 php
This was surprisingly good & we got several platters of this.
Sisig 50 php
Maasim sobra. Parang kilawin na.
Papaitan 70 php.
And coz the kids don’t know how to go provincial hehe.. MANOK! ;)) 70 php/leg
Kalderetang kambing 70 php
Ate was able to join us on the last day.
But all she had was the halo-halo. Without the halo. :|
Just the shaved ice & milk. zOMG. Hindi sila mabubuhay sa probinsya!
Halo Halo special 60 php, Mais co Hielo 50 php

For dinner, we would go to Puerto del Sol (Cafe Del Sol) for a relaxed & quiet evening since the 350+ contingent Bio students have overtaken the mess hall every meal time. We also took advantage of their washrooms before heading back to reality that is El Pescador.

Relaxed & homey, just the way we like it.
Single meals here cost around 350-500 php. 
Bangus Belly Sisig 280 php
Chicken Cordon Bleu 340 php
Tinomok 320 php
Bangus Kare-Kare 320 php
Meals are just not the same if we’re not complete </3
Take-home for ate. Teriyaki Chicken 285 php
Hawaiian Pizza 430 php

I really can’t say that Pangasinan is a foodie’s haven. I would prefer the nearby beaches if water fun is all I’m after. But the people of pangasinan are warm & friendly. They have made our stay bearable.

I have never appreciated the comforts of my home more than I do now. It was really quite an experience, and it will take a while before I step foot outside metro manila. :P

    Hi! Thank goodness you did not completely go private or stopped blogging. My chest cramped at the possibility that I can’t read your posts anymore. Hehehe. Drama!

    Joking aside, I always look forward to reading your blog when I get back from work or school as it’s either full of pictures of food (I like to torture myself) or full of comic relief.

    Anyway, the pictures of food got me hungry again!

    More power to your blog whether here or in blogspot! :)
