In addition, we also ordered a delectable seafood pasta and a savoury calamari side to go along. This is definitely the place to visit if you are craving for some Italian food.

6. Halowich
Boracay HalowichHalowich – super popular dessert joint

What could be better on a hot day then a delicious ice-cold dessert? Halowich is a popular dessert joint at D’Mall in Boracay that offers sinfully delicious Halo-halo. This is a traditional Filipino dessert made from a mixture of shaved ice and evaporated milk, and added with toppings of boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits. It’s like the Filipino version of Singapore’s Ice-Kachang. The joint is extremely popular with both the locals and tourists, and was always packed to the brim with a long queue outside the restaurant whenever we walked by. In the end, we decided to order a halo-halo to go.  The sweet Filipino dessert tasted wonderful as we slowly savoured its rich flavour in our mouths. This is definitely a sinful indulgence that everyone must try!

The restaurant staffs were all very polite and prompt in their service. The restaurant owner, a bubbly British man, was very friendly and engaged in small talk with us and other customers.

Shangri Boracay Seafood BuffetBoracay is famous for its super fresh and delicious seafood. Many restaurants and resorts offer seafood dinner buffets at very reasonable prices. Dine in style on the beach while admiring the beautiful sunsets!

We had the seafood buffet at our resort: “Seafood Island” Buffet at Punta Bunga Beach by Shangri La Boracay. Punta Bunga Beach is privately owned by Shangri-La Boracay. The exclusive beachfront area and convivial ambience create a nice space for patrons to enjoy the sumptuous buffet. Seafood aficionados can dive into the wide variety of seafood on offer: Crabs, Prawns, Squids, Fish, Slipper lobsters, and Mussels. The seafood items are all displayed neatly, with professional chefs on standby to grill them for you. We especially enjoyed the grilled slipper lobsters, which tasted succulent and fresh. In fact, they were so good that we helped ourselves to multiple servings (kiasu Singaporean-style). Other than seafood, the buffet also offers a variety of Japanese Sashimi, cooked food selections, and sweet desserts.
