What to Eat Boracay Couple's Itinerary

1. Chori Burger – The sweet and salty Chori burger has been a popular Boracay snack for as long we can remember. In fact, hacks of the famous recipe have been posted online, but really, nothing can beat the original.

  • Where to get and cost: Merly’s BBQ at PHP50

2. Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl – Smoothie bowls aren’t just made for instagram, they’re the perfect breakfast or midday snack, and they’re extremely nutritious too.

  • Where to get and cost: Hoy, Panga! Boracay at PHP280

3. Four cheese pizza – It’s made of bleu cheese, mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan, and it’s another can’t-miss during your trip.

  • Where to get and cost: BarLo, Two Seasons Hotel at PHP580

4. Banana Choco Peanut Fruit Shake – These fruit shakes are so synonymous to Boracay, that it’s probably one of the first images you think of after the obvious “beach”, “ocean” and “white sand”. The drinks are refreshing, delicious, and the one thing you’ll need to cool down during a hot day.

  • Where to get and cost: Jonah’s Fruit Shake at PHP110

5. Sunny Side Champorado – While the classic champorado on its own is good enough, this version elevates your experience by adding surprise ingredients like bacon brittle, mango slices, and a scoop of caramel ice-cream. What’s best is that it’s made with the award-winning Malagos Chocolate from Davao.

  • Where to get and cost: Sunny Side Cafe at PHP250

6. Calamansi Muffin – Another homegrown favorite, these Calamansi Muffins are no doubt, one of the top pasalubong requests. Slightly toasted, refreshingly zesty, and pillowy soft — this is something you’ll want to hoard.

  • Where to get and cost: Real Coffee & Tea Cafe at PHP45 per piece

7. Fresh Seafood – Nothing authenticates your Filipino beach meal more than a paluto. Simply point out your seafood of choice, and they’ll cook it fresh right in front of you.

  • Where to get and cost: D’Talipapa Market, varies

8. Lemon Cheesecake – When your sweet tooth starts acting up, this cheesecake is the answer. It presents the perfect blend of sweet and sour with a kick of lemon that keeps you wanting more.

  • Where to get and cost: Lemoni Cafe at PHP140

9. Mango Soft Serve Ice cream – If there’s one thing that’s worth lining up for, it’s this. Hot days only get better with smooth soft-serve with sweet mango chunks, there’s nothing else like it.

  • Where to get and cost: Halowich at PHP70
