It was my second time to go to Bolinao and I remember the problems regarding food due to time of arrival and the lack of food establishments in Abrac Beach in Patar. That’s why I would like to present to you 2 Restaurants you should know when in Bolinao, Pangasinan.
1. Adora’s Restaurant
When I noticed that we were arriving in Bolinao around 2 AM, I quickly asked the driver where we could stay or eat while we wait for daylight. He quickly answered a 24 hours opened restaurant named Adora’s that is located near the public market and Bolinao Church.
Arriving at Bolinao I noticed that there were a few karinderyas opened but since we were not hungry we first tried to talk to a few tricycle drivers around the station of Victory Liner and Five Star. After a while they suggested for a lodging where I could stay for a short-time to sleep, but I said no. They then said that if I do not want to sleep I should try Adora’s too.
There must be something about Adora’s that two different people would recommend it. Actually, the people at the Department of Tourism in Bolinao also recommended Adora’s. That’s why we ended up trying it.
It was a karinderya type of food establishment where you will just pick a readily available food for you to eat. It was good and their ingredients were fresh. Their also specialty are kambing cooking.
P35.00 – Vegetables
P45.00 – Sinigang
P60,00 – Kilawin
P10.00 – 1 cup Rice
P24.00 – 12oz Softdrink
Adora’s Restaurant is just walking distance from the bus stations, public market and Bolinao Church.
2. La Parola el Restaurante
On my first time in Patar we forgot to bring uncooked rice so I was the one assigned to look for bigas and I walked for more than 2 kilometers looking for a sari-sari store that has one. Unfortunately, there were no sari-sari stores nor kardinerya’s in Patar! I ended up knocking on the door of a household and asking for a small amount of their bigas.
Due to Patar slowly becoming popular through the years a lot of sari-sari stores have sprung up on my second visit. Unfortunately, there were still no karinderya’s but only one restaurant now sprung up and that is La Parola el Restaurante. Still a great news!
The crew of La Parola told us that we were the first customer for the day when we ate our late lunch. When we came back for dinner the crew told us that we were the only customers they had for the whole day!
Their mixed pancit was good and it only costs P90 and could feed 3 pax – me, Laiza and Kuya Rowel, our tricycle driver. 🙂
We ordered the following:
P90.00 – Mixed Pancit
P100.00 – Pinakbet (Ilocano)
P30.00 – Barbecue
P30.00 – 2 plain rice; P15/each
P250.00 – Total food for late lunch and dinner; P125.00 each
Now I know that when I am in Abrac Beach in Patar I do not have to worry about food. 🙂
