A Boracay dining experience is not complete if you haven't tried dining at the paluto restos at D'Talipapa. This is similar to Metro Manila's Dampa dining.
We haven't had a paluto-experience during our previous trips to Boracay so I made sure that we get to try it this time. Upon checking the choices, I narrowed it down to Sababi Restaurant located in Station 2 in the popular D'Talipapa district.
I'd like to mention though that D'Talipapa (and D'Mall) was the to-go place in Boracay years ago when there's only a handful of restaurants along the coastline of the island. My first Boracay paluto was at a restaurant called- Beach Camp which is sadly, already non-existent.
So we rode the e-trike and asked to be dropped near Azalea Hotel because D'Talipapa is nearby. It was way past lunchtime so no reservation was needed. Also, it is not yet peak season nor weekend and there's not much tourists.
We ordered Spicy Sizzling Squid, Kinilaw na Tanigue, and Lato (seaweed) Salad plus three cups of rice, and an extra one afterwards.
Yummy! There's only three of us but we managed to finish everything off our plates. Then I managed to track down an interesting bibingka with salted egg paste from Menina's Oven and had it delivered to Sababi.
It was a very filling lunch, and we love how fresh the seafood tasted. And the lato, wow. Just wow. Total price was around P1K+ including tip. We're happy campers here.
