Maxima Aquafun, Samal Island (Part 2)

As a 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, 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!)

  1. the nilagpang looks good. i thought it was tinola, lol.

  2. I know someone who have been there and she said the place is really worth going for. sana makapunta din ako diyan :)

  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's the best.

    1. A hot sabaw is exactly what I need with this kind of weather. :)

  4. em from mckinley A dear. you're from ACN too?


    1. Nope, but I have college classmates from ACN. :)

  7. We're going there this weekend(which explains how I ended up in this post). Glad to know they have a restaurant there after all. Searching your blog now for more samal stuff. :)

    1. Have a nice trip! If you have questions, just tweet me: @michymichymoo :)
