Bantayan Island: Walking around Sta. Fe


The time is almost 3pm and we haven't had our lunch yet. Jego suggested a restaurant whose name she only recalls as 'Porchu-wow' (in Jego's vocabulary, 'wow' is equivalent to 'kwan'). So the whole group went out of the resort to look for that resto.

Marisqueira O Portuguese aka Porchu-wow. Lol.
The restaurant is about a 5 minute walk from Kota beach. We passed by a number of sari-sari stores along the way.

There's also a school at the next block.

There are a lot of restos within the perimeter but we decided to give Marisqueira a try. Eh hilo na rin kami no.

The restaurant is decorated with flags, jerseys, etc.

My Ratings for this resto: 3 out of 5

Right after lunch, we walked back to the resort but this time we took the other route.

  1. LOL at "liempo gum". Too bad, it kinda looks yum! I miss Bantayan! That place is such paradise :)

  2. ahaha! we were the first customers ata for the day and 13 kami kaya mejo nataranta sila. Hence, half cooked food. =p
