Surveying the (vast) small town residing in the island of Busuanga, it's obvious that sea food is the best bet. Fresh fish, crabs and lobsters and shrimp are a given. Hubby, being hypersensitive to sea food, gave us the option to scrounge for some alternative indulgences. All over the place, near the public market, you'll find an assortment of mixed and matched eateries. Nothing really the stomach full of grand. On our first day in Coron, we tried Kawayanan Grill for lunch.

Since we got uber tired from the whole day touring islands, we decided to eat dinner at the restaurant of Sea Dive. The menu has a lot to offer but I was craving for something very local - Sinigang. I got what I wanted, complete with fish sauce with calamansi and chili!

Day three was pack up day. Before checking-in at the airport, we had a quick lunch in a food house near the airport. Very simple food for two very hungry people.
