Boracay Food Guide: 7 Places That You Must Try

Boracay Food Guide

We’ve been to many beaches in Asia, but Boracay is among the prettiest, and our one trip to the Philippines island changed our lives forever. The picturesque Boracay makes an ideal beach getaway, and the locals are so hospitable and welcoming!

During our trip, we’ve had several memorable meals, and the places that we are going to share are highly recommended even by locals themselves. Think fruit shakes and smoky BBQ meats.

No one says you have to eat shitty food at touristy places when you are on a holiday. We’ve previously covered 10 reasons why you should visit Boracay at least once in your life.¬†Here, we share 7¬†Food Places That You Must Try in Boracay. With this simple guide, we hope you’d have as much fun dining as you would sun-tanning and surfing!

I love Backyard BBQ


I LOVE BACKYARD BBQ


Steaks, BBQ seafood and meat, you name it, I Love Backyard BBQ has it. Treat yourself to a feisty dinner here, with smoky meats, an assortment of seafood (P560), and the best Baby Back Ribs (P299) – all BBQ-ed with a brilliant char. We also love the upbeat vibe here, and island dining this way is so sexy!

Jonah's Fruit Shake


JONAH’S FRUIT SHAKE & SNACK BAR


They say Jonah’s Fruit Shake & Snack Bar has the best fruit shake on the island, and we cannot agree more. On a hot sunny day, what we wouldn’t say no to is a mango shake. Very Instagrammable against the coconut trees and White Beach too, we’d say. Just for the record, they offer more than forty milkshake flavours.

Mang Inasal


MANG INASAL


Mang Inasal may be a restaurant chain (with over 400 branches in Philippines) but that should not stop you from dining here. The food is not only super affordable, it is also extremely satisfying. Once you taste the chicken inasal from Mang Inasal, you will never see grilled chicken in the same light again. Masarap!

Real Coffee Muffin


REAL COFFEE & TEA CAFE


Nobody should leave Boracay without having the legendary Calamansi Muffin from Real Coffee & Tea Cafe. It is moist and sweet and tastes more like a cupcake than a muffin. And if you have enough stomach space, try the Brownie, too!

Sababi D' Talipapa


SABABI D’ TALIPAPA


D’ Talipapa is a famous wet market in Boracay where you buy fresh/live seafood from the stall vendors, and proceed to the restaurants (located beside the market) to have the seafood prepared in your favourite styles. It is fascinating to see the array of seafood right before your eyes, but bargaining for a fair price may be a challenge.

Among the numerous seafood restaurants at D’ Talipapa, we would suggest going to Sababi D’ Talipapa.

Smoke Resto


SMOKE RESTO


A local Filipino eatery which you must check out in Boracay is Smoke Resto. It serves many local favourites including lechon, spicy garlic pork and kaopad, but the highlight here is the Beef Salpicao – stir-fried beef strips in chilli dark sauce, topped with crispy garlic bits. Not the most photogenic dish, but it is so damn good.
