Puerto Princesa, Palawan [Philippines]

I'm headed to the Philippines in a month, including 3 1/2 days in Puerto Princesa. I have to see the underground river, doncha know!

Does anyone have any firsthand experience eating in Puerto Princesa? We're looking primarily for seafood, but will eat anything, including non-Filipino food (if it's good). I've done some googling already, and have found suggestions for KaLui, Badjao Seafood Restaurant, Kinabuchs, Balinsasayaw ... But if anyone has any suggestions for undiscovered eateries, I'd love to hear about them!

I'm also very interested in bakeries! I'd love to include some Puerto Princesa ensaimada in my taste tests :-)

And breakfast places! I love breakfast, and our hotel rate does not include breakfast, so we will need to find sustenance elsewhere.

And any suggestions for food-related souvenirs that are specialties of the area?

Oh, we're staying at Hotel Centro, so nearby recs are appreciated, but we will travel for food. I should also mention that my traveling companion is a serious germaphobe, so dive-like restaurants need not apply.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
