I found out about Lonesome Carabao Lounge through a newly found friend I met in my resort. Jack was very insistent I tried the place for their Burrito. He said it’s not the best but definitely not something I should missed out. We also spoke about liquors and he recommended I try McClelland’s single malt whisky. The next day we found ourselves inside Lonesome.

Lonesome sits right next to the main road and has a nice little cabana extension on the side for dining. I heard a foreigner owns the place but it’s being manage by his Filipina wife. True to what Jack said, they didn’t skimp on the good stuff. My order came with two huge burritos, beans, salsa, Mexican rice, lettuce and tomato.

I was skeptical because the burrito in army navy had a lasang bumbay and I really disliked the taste. This one doesn’t have! Perfecto! It was packed with flavors. I also had a glass of his beloved whisky on the rocks. It’s a tad sweet that’s drying but not exceedingly hot. I liked it!

The first place where we've eaten when we arrived at El Nido.

It is a Mexican inspired lounge. Where we felt that we are the foreigners from our own country. since, people eating during that time are all foreigners.

The place is nice, smooth and laid-back. Although, I find it a bit dark. I understand that rice meal might not be the best that they can dish out. Since they are a Mexican lounge. We don't hold a choice but to eat heavy meal due to long land transfer from Puerto Princesa.

We ordered Sinigang and Adobo. However, The sinigang tasted like sinigang sa kamatis which Im not use to that. and the pork adobo was too salty and the meat is rough.

The good thing is the big servings which is just because the price is a bit expensive.

Probably, a good place to relax but not to have dinner.

Chicken Quesadillas is better than the beef variant. Try the hot chocolate, too!

It was their anniversary when we were there. We got free slices of chocolate cake from the owner.
