Step-by-Step Travel to Coron Part 8 – Foodtrip in Coron

Dining in Coron is not that expensive.  Many restaurants also cater to the expat crowd — most visitors when we were there last January are foreigners.  The locals said foreigners do flock around that time to avoid the winter weather in their countries and that taking the trip here is cheaper than paying electricity cost of a heater back home.

Let’s see the variety of food we have eaten here at Coron.

Kapemos Restaurant

The first time we ate here, we had lobster in lemon butter sauce.

We came back last January 2013, we tasted the lobster thermidor and a native shell (locally called ‘litlit’) ceviche.  The owner Sir Aries also had us taste his local chocolate dessert.

La Sirenetta

The menu is rather pricey here but the food is also that good.  I was told that the La Sirenetta prawns were the bestseller at 450php per order.

The restaurant is built above the boat wharf itself, its columns designed with mermaid sculptures -- so unique!

We gave money to the staff of the hotel to buy crabs and lato (local seaweed) at the market.  The food was cooked by the hotel staff and this was our dinner:  Sweet Spicy Crab, Fried Crab stuffed in its shell (our favorite) and Lato salad.
