After the city tour, we rested for a while then headed to Kinabuchs Grill and Bar for dinner. It's an open-air bar with native huts and alfresco setting. It is nestled on a side street with huge parking area and filled with tall trees.
We sampled some of their hot dishes like Sizzling Tuna (Php 135.00) and Sizzling Spareribs (Php 145.00). We also had Buko Shake (Php 70.00) and Cali (Php 35.00). The food was okay and quite spicy. The buko shake wasn't memorable like Kalui's great shake, but it was good enough to quench my thirst.
Oh, and if you're daring enough, you may also try their famous Palawan's exotic local delicacy known as "Kinilaw na Tamilok", a live woodworm marinated in vinegar or calamansi juice. (sorry folks no pics) We never really tried this dish for the reason that we are not that extreme fearless omnivores. It may seem kind of icky and gross but this is known as an aphrodisiac and most aficionados say it tastes like oyster or cheese. hmmm...
There were many patrons came in and the place filled up pretty fast. Overall, I could have enjoyed dinner if it weren't for those pesky mosquitoes that were out in full force, having a grandiose party while sucking my precious blood. There were few electric mosquito killers placed in some sections, but it weren't very helpful at all. My feet got plenty of mosquito bites while hubby remain unmolested. He was wearing rubber shoes (lucky him!) and I was wearing slippers only.
The bar is a great place to spend time over a game of billiard and enjoy refreshingly cold drinks or alcoholic beverages. They have satellite TV, where you can watch your favorite sports and other popular channels. It's a favorite meeting place and known with locals and tourists alike. Kinabuchs Grill and Bar is located at Rizal Avenue, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines (Telephone: 6348.4345194).
