Dos Palmas Food Trip!

NOTE: Picture Overload. Don't open if you're hungry!






Here is the main reason why I sulked the moment I got back here in Manila: No food beats the ones served to us in Dos Palmas! Just looking at the photos...gawd!!!! Gutom na gutom nakoooo!!!


FIRST DAY:

Lunch
Since this was my first "taste" of their buffet, super nag overeat ako! Inoverestimate ko capacity ko sa food...Hahaha! I went for second serving of the palabok (no chicharon, lots of garlic!) kahit busog nako, only to find out hindi ko na kaya after my first subo! Haha! 







Salad area! :D


Also, I was super duper pleased na they served SO MUCH gulay...
Ana: "They heard us!" 
Haha...Oh the keme of being a vegetarian! :P I'm just glad the people closest to me doesn't question my "authenticity". I've heard a lot.. But for next entries na ang kwentong iyon, hehe.



Dinner
There were three groups lang during dinner time of our first day--a big cute German family, a couple, and kami ni Ana--mga kalokohang sistahs! So instead of a buffet set-up, I love that they served full course dinner to us by the pool. Ang ganda ng set-up, fairytale! Nakakatawa lang I wasn't expecting that they will serve us the complete "the works"--Akala ko yun appetizer yun na yun, yun pala may salad pa, kanin at ulam, dessert, eycheteyra! :P 






I love this soup!!! Distinct taste that I will never ever forget! Haha!


I love it...Hindi lang shrimp tempura ang sinerve, they mixed it with VEGETABLE tempura! <3



Just a little trivia: Kung ako vegetarian, si Ana hindi kumakain ng gulay. So we have to finish our own "assigned foods" all to ourselves. Haha! Nilafang ko lahat ng kagulayan, hahaha! Kahit dekorasyon ng plato, mind you. Hahaha!


I LOVE the crepe! Too full, but I still tried to finish this with Ana!


Drank 2-3 tasa of kape every meal. Lagi kong excuse: Ang liit kasi ng cup. But actually, it was because super busog ako!


SECOND DAY

Breakfast
All I can say is - wala parin akong papigil sa kain! Parang hindi nabusog from last night, just because I love that they served different foods, at hindi paulit ulit! I love the mashed potatoes! Hindi siya instant lang, at hindi kailangan ng gravy para sumalap. :P

Didn't attempt getting breads and pancakes na...




My friend and I realized we didn't even tried the juices. Mas water pala talaga kami!


They have assorted cereals too. Pahealthy lang kaya I got one serving of this, fiber ba.


Lunch
This was when they took us to a private island, to experience a special "picnic lunch" by the sea...All to ourselves. :)




Ang DAAAMING gulay, akala talaga gutumin ako, hahaha!



Dinner
I think eto pinaka FAVORITE kong buffet! I just love PASTA, mongolian, the pumpkin soup, and maki rolls. It was also our last night, so super naenjoy and inappreciate ko siya! Hehe! :)


















LAST DAY - Breakfast
Super nakakadepress! Hahaha! Knowing last time na namin sa Dos Palmas buffet! :P Didn't get to eat a lot din, super nagmamadali na since we have to be aware of our boat, van, and flight schedules. Still, winner parin yung foods they served to us! 








I love the egg station! :) Cheese + Mushroom Omelette!


That's it pansit!!! The moment I got home, egg nalang ulam ko--ako pa nag prito. Wala nang unlimited brewed coffee, at taga-salin ng tubig sa baso (hehe). At instead of palabok, pansit canton nalang pagkain ko, hahaha! I it's the world's way of saying: time for dyeta  na daw uli! ;) HAH! :)

  9. Alam mo kung anung problema ko sa buhay? Di ko matanggihan ang buffet! Di ako malakas talaga kumain pero pag buffet na ang usapan, pang-construction worker bigla ang appetite ko. Haha.

    Nung nag-Palawan kami, sinasama sana ko ng Mama ko sa day trip sa Dos Palmas kaso kailangan kong samahan yung friends ko kasi first time nila mag-Underground River. Sayang naman. Nainggit tuloy ako. :( Sarap ng mga pagkain! Hahaha.

  10. On my last trip to Puerto Princesa, I also went on a day tour of Dos Palmas. I must say it was the most sulit part of our itinerary! Like you, I'm still haunted by their buffet even years after. I always recommend to friends going there to go to Dos Palmas. The food alone is so worth it, but the place is also breathtaking :)
