An alternative for the unprepared
It is definitely better if you come prepared here in Cagbalete Island -- with all the utensils, grilling essentials and of course ingredients, since there are allotted spaces in the resorts where you can grill. However, for those who'll find themselves lazy or unaware enough to prepare, you can drop by Nico and Jewel of Doña Choleng Resort.

Pancit Habhab || P150

The pancit habhab may lack the magic of that found in Lucban, but it was still decent and tasty.

Calamares || P250

The calamares also fell in short in terms of flavor although it was rightly crispy. Also, the vinegar compensates for the lack of flavors.

Chicken Tinola || P250

The tinola was the best with its tasty ginger-infused soup, each sip brings comfort of a perfectly made tinola. Must-try!

Longganisa Lucban || P100

The longganisa captured most of the bountiful taste of a traditional lucban longganisa. It was very garlicky and rightly salty! Amazing.

Beef Tapa || P100

The tapa had this richness in flavor with just the right blend of sweetness.

Halo-Halo || P50
