Sababi Restaurant Boracay

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.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow! 

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
