Where & What to Eat at Bohol
Did you say you have a sudden urge to eat a juicy Aussie steak or cheeseburger, in an Country-Western themed restaurant, and waited on by deaf-mutes? Strange but you certainly can have all of that at the Garden Cafe right next to the Tagbilaran Cathedral. Ah yes, the burger was good.
Trudi’s Place and Aquatica Dive Resort also have passable dishes although the ratatouille at Aquatica wasn’t that impressive. Don’t hold your breath yet. Walk a bit further to the left from Aquatica Dive Resort and you will bump into restaurants that offer grilled fresh seafood. Grilled parrotfish with a soy-calamansi (calamansi is Philippine lime, a small, citrusy fruit) dip paired with a heaped serving of local rice and cold German beer on the beach under the stars and amidst tiki-torches is simply heaven.
Don’t forget to take home Peanut Kisses home with you though, it’s one of Bohol’s favourite snack foods and desserts as well as the sticky sweet delicacy called Kalamay (/Kah-lah-mahy/).
