1. Tamilok – Usually found in wood immersed in sea water, Tamilok (shipworms) is part of a group of saltwater clams with naked, soft, and long bodies. Enjoyed kinilaw-style (raw but marinated with lime juice or vinegar, chopped chili peppers, and onions), Tamilok is said to taste like smooth oysters.
2. Crocodile Adobado – Bite into a serving of crocodile meat stewed in coconut milk, seasoning, and spices.
3. Danggit Lamayo – A Visayan favorite, sliced rabbitfish is partially sundried, lightly salted, and is then marinated in vinegar, garlic, and pepper. It is then fried, making the head and the fins extra crispy. This is usually enjoyed at breakfast with tomatoes and a runny egg.
4. Honey Nougat – Made with Palawan nougat, wild honey, and whole cashew nuts – this sweet treat is a must-eat when in the area. It is also something that travelers buy as “pasalubong” for family and friends back home.
