Aside from the improved service of hotel staff, one of the reasons why hubby and I developed a liking for Dangkalan Beach Resort is its food and amiable restaurant crew. We had free plated breakfast served by Dangkalan Beach Resort's in-house restaurant, a native-inspired cottage-like resto. We also ate some meals there whenever we were too tired to go to the City.

The restaurant's location near the beach and swimming pool makes one feel like having a picnic. While waiting for your food, you can stroll in the beach to get a whiff of fresh sea breeze or do some picture taking. If you don't feel like strolling, you can just watch any tv program you fancy. (They have a flat tv at the dining hall.) You can opt to eat inside their dining hall, or eat al fresco.

Favorite Dish: I liked their native dishes, but my favorite is the "pinaputok na isda". The fish is seasoned with oyster sauce, garnished with chopped tomatoes, onions and spices and wrapped in banana leaves, then deep-fried until you hear "crackling" ("pumuputok") sound.
