Palawan’s population is mainly composed of migrants from other parts of the Philippines. Quite underdeveloped, its dining scenery—especially Puerto Princessa, El Nido, and Busuanga (the jump-off for Coron) is primarily catered for visitors. Now a popular travel destination for Western and Asian travelers alike, there are now dining areas that cater to different taste buds: from vegetarian dishes to affordable seafood.
There are, of course, affordable places where locals and budget travelers go for a meal that can only cost a dollar. For important celebrations such as birthdays or anniversaries, the locals—the migrants—indulge dining out or celebrate at home by preparing sumptuous dishes.
Palaweños’ meals primarily depend on the will of the seas and mountains. Dining with the locals—either truly a native or a migrant, can be an enlightening experience for a traveler. Palawan has a very colorful, rich, at some parts, saddening history
