Boracay is a picturesque island located in the western Philippines, renowned for its stunning beaches, impeccable views and clear waters. This island is not only breathtaking, but it also boasts a plethora of culinary delights that one must experience. From street food to fine dining, Boracay has some of the tastiest dishes that will make your taste buds dance with joy.
The name speaks for itself- a burger made of a juicy, char-grilled chorizo patty, served with a sweet and tangy sauce on a soft bun. This delightful dish originated in the island of Mindanao and has now become a beloved fast food staple in Boracay. The moist texture of the chorizo mixed with the sweet-savory flavor of the sauce is a must-try!
The Filipino take on this classic Spanish dish is a must-try for seafood enthusiasts. Loaded with fresh squid, shrimp, mussel, fish, and vegetable, it is the perfect dish to indulge in with a group of friends. The dish is cooked in a large serving dish, giving it that perfect crispy rice on the bottom.
Another fusion of fish and chorizo, the Chori-Fish is a plate of fish fillet topped with a meticulously proportioned chorizo sauce mix that is sure to tickle your taste buds. The chorizo is, again, char-grilled, and when mixed with the tender fish, it makes for a fantastic combination. One bite can take you for a ride on a flavor rollercoaster.
Kinilaw is a popular appetizer made with raw fish marinated in vinegar or calamansi juice, onions, chili, and various herbs. The acidity of the vinegar or citrus juice “cooks” the fish and gives it a tangy, refreshing flavor. It’s a perfect pallet cleanser, ideal for those sunny days on Boracay’s beaches.
Pork sisig is a dish that has been making waves as one of the top Filipino dishes for years now. Originating from the region of Pampanga, the signature dish is made with finely chopped pig’s head and liver, flavored with soy sauce, vinegar, calamansi, and chili. It is crowned with an egg and garnished with sliced onions and green peppers.
Lechon is the go-to dish for any celebration in the Philippines, and Boracay is no exception. This dish is made by roasting a suckling pig over charcoal for hours until crispy skin covers the tender meat underneath. In Boracay, it is typically served on a platter with a side of lechon sauce, helping us to enjoy the crispy skin and tender meat all in one bite!
Batchoy is a classic Filipino noodle soup, Western Visayas’ pride and one of the dishes that Boracay is famous for. It is made of pork or chicken broth, loaded with egg noodles, pork liver, garlic, onions, and topped with crunchy pieces of chicharron. A squeeze of calamansi is added at the end to balance the richness of the pork broth. Batchoy will keep you warm and satisfied, especially during rainy seasons or cold evenings.
Inasal is a popular grilled chicken dish from the city of Bacolod in the Negros Island region. The chicken is marinated overnight in a mixture of calamansi juice, vinegar, garlic, and annatto oil, then grilled over hot coals until succulent and tender. Fresh chunks of tomatoes, onions, and calamansi are served on the side, adding extra zing to the dish.
Adobo is often considered as the national dish of the Philippines, and for good reason. It is made by marinating the meat (either chicken, pork or a combination of both) in soy sauce and vinegar, then braising it until the meat absorbs the rich sauce and becomes incredibly tender. In Boracay, it is often served with steamed rice and fried egg to create the perfect hearty breakfast meal.
Halo-Halo is a sweet, refreshing dessert typically made of shaved ice, evaporated milk, sweet beans, jellies, fruits, and other sweet confections. A recent trend is to add ice cream to make it even more indulgent. In Boracay, you can find this dessert everywhere, but it’s highly recommended to taste it at Jonah’s shaking restaurant, known for their wide array of flavors and heavenly texture.
