Kalui Restaurant is one of the most visited restaurants in Puerto Princesa. The group decided to dine after our tiring city tour.
FYI, you need to make reservation ahead of time. You can ask your hotel or pension house to make one for you. Also, they accept credit cards. Its a must for me. :)
Upon entering the restaurant, you will see the lawn with antique statues and chairs. Perfect waiting area and for taking picturettes. The restaurant is made out of woods, i think its narra. Its like a big nipa hut, beautiful nipa hut. By the way, you need to remove your shoes when you dine here. As in barefoot talaga. Kung sanay kang nakapaa sa bahay niyo, di na bago sayo to. Hehe. The interior is so native and classy. I like the ambience and the low light. This place is perfect for dinner and lunch.

Okay, since pagod kami and we were really hungry, we ordered right away. We chose Kalui Special of the Day menu and just added side orders: Shrimps Halabos or in Garlic Butter and Sizzling Seafood Sisig. Everything is so tasty and delicious except for the soup because we didn't like it. Lakas maka-salabat and the appetizer, lato or seaweed, not a fan.
You think it's not good for 5? No. We even ordered extra rice. We were joking that one rice costs 30 per cup but its not, 10 pesos naman. So after eating, Yella and I decided to roam around. This place is like a mini museum. Lots of paintings and antique displays. You can also buy native bags and souvenirs here.

Ratings: Food - 9 Place - 9. At least pumasa sa level ng taste ko! I'm a fan of seafood and lowlight place. Feel ko yung restaurant dahil sa ambience. You must go here.
