Unpretentious Dining in Coron

Crabs with chili sauce
Lifestyle in Coron being an island and far from the main cities of the Philippines is still very simple and provincial. If not having an airport, seaport and  for the tourist (local & foreign) who visits Coron this island could have remained isolated from the rapid developments that is happening in the Philippines. But because of the detached location of Coron Islands, commercialization was slow and it's a good thing because it preserved Coron's God given natural beauty.
Dining in Coron was simple and inexpensive though some may not agree. Most of the dishes serves 2-3 persons depending on your appetite. When you are dining in a group dining can be cheaper (if you share the bill).

Most of the restaurants were simply decorated, yet clean and serviced by friendly staff. Although our tour guide told us that there are high end restaurants around but we opted to dine within walking distance radius from our hotel. Besides, walking in the streets of Coron even in late hours is safe. Actually, there no night life in Coron that is why we don't have any reason to be in the street very late. 

These were what we had on our first and second night in Coron Island (with photo of the restaurant).

The dishes were unpretentious when it comes to presentation yet all tasted really good that makes us like to order for another serving. Even during our last night when we had lobster, it simply tasted really great.

  5. So they simply named the restaurant as CORON? I guess I agree with you that commercialization is not yet applicable in Coron, nevertheless, I drooled over the food photos
