Maxima Aquafun, Samal Island (Part 2)





As continuation of our Samal Island adventure, let me share with you our lunch at Maxima Aquafun.

Maxima Aquafun has a restaurant named Anahaw Resto and Cafe. Anahaw serves traditional and exotic Filipino dishes at really affordable prices. I was expecting that resort food would be a little pricey since there are no other restos around the area (except for the store just outside the resort).


Most of the dishes are good for 3 pax, which was just right since my friend and I are starving. :)

We ordered Nilagpang (Php 200), an Ilonggo dish with Plain Rice (Php 45 for 3 cups).


Nilagpang

Nilagpang, or Linagpang nga Manok, is a dish similar to Tinola. The chicken is fried or roasted then mixed with onions, tomatoes, chili and other vegetables. I think they used native chicken for the dish and though it was really hot, I enjoyed this dish.

We also had Crispy Fried Noodles (Php 160).

Crispy Fried Noodles

My friend loves crispy noodles but doesn't like veggies. It was generously topped with vegetables that I heartily dug in.

All of these with 1.5 Liter of Coke. Take note: there are only two of us. :)

Anahaw also serves Crocodile Sisig and Crocodile BBQ, which I will try next time (I swear!)

  3. the sight of nilagpang drooled me. I always am a fan of a dish with "sabaw" (soup) as it quenches my thirsty body after a hard days work. Sarap naman neto! And the Crispy Fried Noodles wow..it's the best.
