I found Kawayanan Grill Station during my stroll around town earlier that afternoon, I thought it looked pretty cool with its native motif and airy layout so I marked it as one of the restos we’ll try out during our stay in Coron.
The grill was openly arranged on a stone-paved atrium with bamboo huts and parasols lining up its perimeter. The main bar holds it all together, being located on a tiki hut right smack in the middle of everything. The atmosphere’s laid back; it was something you’d expect to see on a beach, but since the town of Coron really had no beachfront, we’ll just have to make-believe we’re on one.
After browsing through their menu which consists mostly of typical grilled meat, seafood and Filipino dishes, we settled for their vegetable curry and pork liempo. The meal cost us Php390.00 inclusive of rice and drinks, we thought that the serving size was a little bit small for the price.
The food was okay; their pork liempo was tender but pretty ordinary, we did like their vegetable curry a lot though.
The staff was quite friendly (this was where we got our boatman which was referred by one of the waiters) and service was efficient. They also have shirts and souvenir items right beside the street for those looking for a little something to bring back home.
Despite the slightly higher price, Kawayanan Grill is a pretty nice place to dine or drink the night away after a tiring trek up Mount Tapyas or a full day’s tour at the nearby islands.
