100 places to eat like a local
It's…on the pond.
Among many of my Asian travels: from eating at a hole in the wall in Malaysia, sipping on the sweetest coconut shakes under Thai Skies, inhaling delicious curry at Angkor Wat, to Gangnam barbecuing in Korea, my favorite most local place to eat by far is, drum roll please, I don't even remember the name --if there even is one. I do remember one thing, it's..on the pond. So local you would never be able to find it even if I attempted to do so. It is literally hidden between alleys and backstreets as if you're trying to escape from everything civilized and then BOOM smack dab in the middle of nowhere, you are at the most magical restaurant you have ever seen, seriously, a real life never never land. Soon, you are walking on a bridge and entering a local wonderland where the people of Boracay Island say it is not only the best Filipino food cooked fresh and true to taste, but they don't let any of their friends leave without eating there. A delicious delight and memory you carry with you forever; a hidden treasure you can't even find on google maps.
Best way to trace it down? Get to know the people of the Island and the rest will follow.
A perfect blend of local friends and food. In the secret streets of Boracay Island, somewhere... on a pond.
