There’s not a lot of unique delicacies that can be found on the island, but there are some nice places to dine and also something to take home as pasalubong.

Dining along Alona Beach is something of a hunt. The moment we arrived, I can’t think or see straight anymore because of hunger. Even with the welcome drinks provided by Henann Resorts (the hotel we stayed in), my tummy still wouldn’t still its growling.

So we went out and searched for something outside the hotel and found Baybayon Restaurant along Alona Beach, Panglao.

They offer reasonably priced food that has big servings.

Henann also boasts of a nice buffet spread every breakfast. So we don’t have to go out and scour the island for something to eat.

Another treat that I got quite addicted to was the gelato from The Buzz Cafe. Read more in this post–> Bohol Travel: The Buzz Cafe.
