As a bed-and-breakfast resort, Puerto Princesa’s Skylight Lodge is fairly well-known. It’s not one of the best, admittedly, however it’s a respectable possibility. Nevertheless, as haven for seafood lovers, Skylight’s restaurant is among the many most extremely beneficial. Yeah, it’s no seafront resort — but it surely has a number of the freshest catches round! And we’re speaking about legit seafood, too!
In the event you haven’t heard about them but, you might be forgiven. Many different vacationers are solely launched to Skylight whereas strolling down Puerto Princesa. It has two issues going for it — the humongous tarpaulin exterior promoting its wares, and the variety of folks (each locals and foreigners) making an attempt them out. While you step in, overlook about stuff like “weight-reduction plan” and “seashore physique”. You’ll be splurging earlier than you realize it!
Their seafood menu is fairly expansive, and there are many decisions for everybody. Admittedly, additionally they had different fares like pork and hen barbecue (for which they had been additionally identified). We tried these as effectively on our go to, although we targeted on the ocean’s catch and a few dessert.
Aligue Rice. We began off with rice slathered with sinfully-rich aligue paste. Whereas this will simply get boring, they added one other dimension of taste by placing in lato (seaweed). This fashion, it turned the proper accompaniment to all of the others we ordered that day!
Sinuglaw. Sinugba is a fairly well-liked dish from the Visayas, however are you aware of Sinuglaw? It’s Sinugba plus Kinilaw, which means the fish (and pork, on this case) is grilled then cooked in vinegar. This gave it an appetizing aroma and taste, an ideal companion for the aligue rice!
Pork and Hen Barbeque. In fact, we are able to’t resist the restaurant’s bestsellers! For an reasonably priced Php 130 (round $three), you’ll be able to have a barbecue meal full with unli rice (plain) and iced tea. Now don’t smirk — that is doubtless one of the best barbecue you can be tasting because you discovered what a barbecue was! Luxurious and flavorful, this deserves all of the status it has.
Combined Seafoods Sinigang. If you would like some soup together with your meal, you’ll be able to’t go improper right here. Simply the best taste, and served with a medley of crab, fish, and squid! If ever you come by right here on a wet or sluggish day, it will unmistakably perk up your senses.
Garlic Squid Adobo. In fact they’ve their very own rendition of our “nationwide” dish! The garlic vastly enhances the flavour of the squid, making for a pleasant meal.
In fact we wouldn’t miss the crustaceans — we had Butter Garlic Crabs, Slipper Lobster, and Pineapple Shrimp! The final one was a spotlight. Who would have thought pineapple went effectively with shrimp? However they made it work, and we weren’t even at dessert. For that we had Tropical Salad (fruits and lato) and Coconut Jelly with Mango. Discuss a tropical meals journey!
With the variability and high quality of their menu, together with the courtesy of their workers, Skylight’s restaurant will certainly be one of many highlights of your Puerto Princesa keep. It was for us, and we had certainly one of our greatest meals whereas there!
