AKLAN | Plato D’ Boracay at D’Mall Palengke ~ Cheap Eats, Good Food | Lakad Pilipinas

We were sick of eating at Andok’s Manok every single day. Bringing your whole family to Boracay can really put a strain on your wallet, so besides carinderia food, we were at the ubiquitous lechon manok place almost every single day. And by the third time, we’re quite sick of it.

THE SMOKE RESTO AT BORACAY’S D’MALL

So, I scoured the net, looking for Boracay restaurants with budget below the hundred peso mark. I know Smoke Resto at D’Mall is one, but I was surprised to find that the place has since closed down. We proceeded to its other branch, but it was packed, as expected.

Since it was already quite late for lunch, we simply decided to eat on a restaurant a few steps away from it, Plato D’ Boracay.

PORK BELLY SOUP ~ PHP125.00

Plato D’ Boracay, is quite similar in set up with Smoke Resto. The place is open-aired, its wooden tables and chairs spilling on the narrow sidewalk outside. They offer mostly Filipino food, by order and on the go. By on the go, I mean they have display trays with readily cooked food, turo-turo style, besides the usual dishes they offer on their menu.

PAKBET ~ PHP150.00

These carinderia offerings are actually quite cheaper than what they have on the menu, and not to mention quicker to be served. But we didn’t notice it until the table right beside us ordered a plate from it. So on we went, taking our orders from their menu and waiting for almost half an hour for it to be served. To be fair, Plato D’ Boracay was almost full when we arrived.

GRILLED TUNA SET MEAL WITH ICED TEA ~ PHP120.00

Most of my companions asked for grilled tuna, a part of their set meals. It comes with rice and iced tea. My parents ordered an ala carte of pinakbet plus two bowls of sinigang pork belly soup; much more expensive but good enough for two to three persons. As for myself, I requested for a set meal of beef salpicao.

BEEF SALPICAO SET MEAL WITH DRINKS ~ PHP120.00

We dug in as soon as the food arrived. We were absolutely famished. I sampled the tuna while waiting for my order; it was truly grilled and was quite superb—ternder with a slightly crispy outer layer. The sinigang was just okay, its meat a bit on the rubbery side. As for the pinakbet, I don’t really eat pakbet, so I don’t know if it’s any good. And finally, my beef salpicao arrived; garlicky, tender and very saucy; totally redeeming the lateness of their serving.
