Must try resto:

Sinugba sa Balay - The owner of resto is also the chef, she's very accomodating and suggest food for us, we tried buttered alimango in garlic sauce (ganun ata yun), Mongo, atchara and liempo, food are superb sa lahat ng nakainan eto ung lahat masarap! First time kong kumain ng crab na malaki talaga, sulit Php 250, 2 big crabs. :) oh they have ethnic performers every night starts 8PM.

Lolo Nonoy's - We have our lunch here and dinner, for budget conscious you may try this they have Php60-200 meals. We tried sisig, sinigang, lecheplan and menudo.

Big Mamas - this is a korean owned resto but most of the foods are pinoy, they have sinigang, sisig, seafood etc.

Centro Coron - the food is also good, we tried beef pares, grilled pork, inasal and breaded chicken. Your Php150 here super sulit ang laki at dami ng servings. :)))

Approximately our budget is less than 10k each.
