How often is it that you choose a hotel based on it's proximity to a restaurant?

We were staying in Puerto Prinsesa for a night en route to the actual destination tomorrow am, and we stayed nearby in Ipil Suites on the corner of La Terrasse.

You'd think highly of the place the moment you step in. The place is full of foreigners which actually scared me a little since that usually means it's expensive - but the prices aren't bad. Pretty expensive likely for Puerto Prinsesa but cheaper than Manila pricing.

Pictured will be the Adobo overload which the staff said was their specialty. It's adobo in different ways put together, there's pork, chicken, flakes, chicharon on the side, toasted garlic and the rice itself it seems was boiled on the adobo sauce. Wanted to finish it but it was just too much!

Next for the wife was the "Catch of the Day." It's lapu-lapu with lemon bouillabaisse with spinach tomatoes all together. It was cooked really well, the fish was fresh, meaty and moist. 128076

For a total of Php700 - it was really really good! Kind of reminds me of Grace Park cooking in Rockwell at perhaps a quarter of the pricing. 128586

Very near the airport, make it a stop before or after the flight!

This Duck Confit is a must try! Crispy and flavorful duck flakes rolled in mandarin crepes with hoisin sauce, cucumber sticks and spring onions. I tell you… this was absolutely dee-lee-cious! The Duck Confit alone is worth the trip back to this place!

A dozen fresh oysters for less than Php 200? Omgz0r YES. Other dishes also delightful and affordable. Great outdoor ambience with shade and bamboo to block view of street traffic

I'm not sure, but maybe we just didn't order the right dishes. They all tasted so-so to me, and the dilis fried rice, which was a best seller, was overwhelmingly oily. I don't remember anything leaving any special impression to me, but our visit here did fill our starving tummies because of their big serving. And I do like the ambiance of the place :)

Adobo overload-- organic native chicken and pork slowly braised in vinegar and soy sauce with garlic galore and a blend of spices, served on a bed of adobo fried rice, topped with crispy adobo flakes, crunchy pork rind and herbs, mango relish on the side. This is most likely the best adobo I've tasted. The medley of textures and flavors made this age old dish come to life with a new twist. A sure winner at only P200!

Regular taste food. It was not as I expected. This is the flour less chocolate cake. It was good but not excellent.

Saw a poster for this restaurant at the front desk of our hotel, so we decided to check it out. The tricycle driver didn't know where it was, so we had to ask the lady at the front desk to explain where it was located. The driver dropped us off at the wrong restaurant 128514 But I saw that the La Terrasse sign was just nearby, so we walked. We fell in love with the place upon entering. The layout is very simple but the light fixtures and chairs made the ambiance very classy128076

Menu looked very promising so we got an appetizer that was a trio of Palawan flavors: cashews (they were toasted and warm!), peanuts and spicy dilis that came with a spicy coconut vinegar. Dad ordered a bowl of clam soup for himself and loved it. I ordered lemon garlic pepper shrimp (pictured above) that came with roasted potatoes and sat on a bed of greens. Then we got a bunch of orders for sharing. Dad ordered talakitok that was pan-fried in anise-infused butter. Yum! You can really taste the anise. I ordered a squid dish that sounded really nice on the menu: oven-baked squid with spinach, feta, and bechamel. I thought the squid would be smothered in white sauce, but when it came, it looked like it was just a squid filled with spinach. When I tasted it though, I could taste the feta and a little bechamel in the spinach. Very creamy and cheesy. The squid was a tad bit overcooked, but I still enjoyed it.

After the meal, I had a craving for dessert. And since I saw that they have homemade sherbet and ice cream, I decided to ask them for the available flavors. They only had mango and guyabano sherbet, so I ordered the honey-nougat ice cream instead. When it came, I was excited. It was topped with a sprig of mint, a sprinkle of cinnamon, some pieces of lengua de gato and a few things I couldn't make out right away. When I tried the things that I didn't know, I was surprised to find that they were candied lemon and orange peel. Sarap! 127848 The ice cream was delicious. I could really taste the honey and the nougat.

This place is definitely a must-try in Palawan. And it's still one of the best dinners I've had since we arrived.

Yummiest adobo I've ever tasted! Organic native chicken and pork served over a bed of adobo rice with chicharon and fried garlic toppings and ripe mango atsara as a side dish. At Php200, it is super sulit! Great ambiance too! Their flourless orange cashew cake served with vanilla ice cream is also a new favorite. Gosh! I wish they open a branch in Manila. I'll upload the pictures soon but if you're in Palawan now (or if you plan to go here very soon), you MUST visit this place!
