Looking for a place to eat in Coron shouldn’t be hard. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from: budget friendly, fine dining, American, Japanese, Italian, fast food, or carinderia. For travelers with a limited budget, this place should be on your list.
Lolo Nonoy’s Food Station tops my list of the most affordable resto in town. They serve good food that doesn’t hurt your pocket. It’s something I look for everytime I travel.
A stoned pathway leads you to a row of nipa huts adorned with summer decors. Plants, trees, and a water fountain surround the place which is perfect for that alfresco dining.
You can have your food ordered thru a food display, the same way you order in a cafeteria where readily available viands can be selected. Another way is thru the menu where food is prepared only upon order.
On the table:
We had lomi soup on a hot day…can you believe that? Weird but true, hot food on a hot day wasn’t that bad. The thick soup filled with noodles and chunks of chicken meat, carrots, and pechay. The aroma and pungent taste of garlic made this dish extra delicious.
I love meat and I couldn’t resist this dish. Pork Binagoongan. It is pork belly sauteed in shrimp paste and coconut milk with veggies, usually eggplant. I immediately told the lady in the counter to give me a serving of this dish upon seeing it in the display. The meat could be swimming in oil and not visually inviting but tasted great. Get ready to order some extra rice as this dish is salty (deliciously salty).
Chicken Cordon Bleu. Yes, it’s a french dish and it’s in the menu. Beat that. :) This chicken wrapped around ham and cheese and coated with breading was served warm which gives a crunchy coating and a creamy filling. It is served on a sizzling plate with fried egg and a cup of rice.
Feel the breeze and gaze at the stars while enjoying your dinner.
