I love food, Filipino food and everything else. So here are my experiences in the past four days.
My best experience was the Jamrock Cafe, they serve Jamaican food. I had soup, goat curry and cornbread plus a mango shake for around 12 € all in all. Very delicious. I try to stick with the Filipino food (except Jamaican, because I love it and there are no Jamaican restaurants at home). You get pizza, pasta and other western food of course.
A really nice dish is spaghetti vongole, the Filipino version. Chicken, pork and rice is standard, fresh seafood and fish available, but not everywhere. If you want to cook, then of course you have the full choice at the public market.
Of course I can’t go out for dinner like this every day. There are plenty of eateries where you get a simple meal for two or three Euros. It’s not great, but it serves the purpose.
Fruits, especially Mangos, are delicious. I didn’t buy much so far, only mangos, bananas and watermelon, but there is so much to try. After I move to my new place on Sunday, I will check the local market for fruits.
And there are calamansi, little citrus fruits. I bought them and squeeze two every morning in water, it is very healthy.
There is a lot to discover and I never had problems with the food health wise.
One thing, try only to drink bottled water, it is super cheap. Normally the drinking water is filtered, but you can still get problems. However, it’s save to brush your teeth with.
