We couldn't get reservations at Ka Lui so we tried Kinabuchs Grill & Bar which was recommended by some tourists whom we met during our tours. Our Resort van brought us there, but it would be very easy to find even without shuttle service because it is along the main road. Kinabuchs is a big compound where one can choose to eat al fresco or in one of the dining halls. They have a giant flat screen TV at the open air dining area. There were already many diners when we came, but we were able to get a table near the bar. The waiters were alert and fast, but when droves of diners came later in the evening, it became so hard to call a waiter for additional orders; we even had to wait so long just to take our bill. Kinabuchs seems to be a popular night spot, too, that's why many people came past dinner time. They came for billiards and beer.

Favorite Dish: Many tourists go to Kinabuchs to try Palawan's much touted aphrodisiac, the "tamilok" but we didn't try that. We had a fruit platter, "kinilaw na isda", sizzling sirloin tips and seafoods "sisig". We liked all except the seafoods "sisig".
