Where to Eat in Baler

Square

When in Baler, you can never run out of places to eat. There are numerous food stalls in the town proper as well as restaurants offering a good variety of flavorful dishes and price points that fit one’s budget. Another thing that we love most about Baler was that food in most restaurants were affordable and of good quality.

Here’s a rundown of the best places to eat in Baler:

  1. Yolly’s

Location: Poblacion

We stopped by here for lunch. Yolly’s offers native dishes such as adobo, pakbet, pork and maya-maya sinigang, Bicol express and menudo, to name a few. They also offer grilled dishes like squids, crabs, shrimps and liempo. Food is around Php60 to Php150 per serving.

Yolly’s also sells spiced vinegar

  1. Picnic Bay by Gerry Shan

Location: Sabang Beach

Picnic Bay is an affordable eat-all-you-can restaurant offering delicious native cuisines. This restaurant is also owned by Gerry Shan of the well-known Gerry Shan’s Place in the town proper. Food here is really good and reasonably-priced at Php250++ per person. It’s along Sabang Beach so expect to be serenaded by the sound of pounding waves. Their selection of soup-based (sinigang, nilaga), meat, vegetable and seafood dishes is extensive. Standout dishes were the crispy squid, lechon kawali, sisig and kilawin. Dessert of fresh fruits, native cakes and leche flan, and unlimited pitcher of iced tea are also included.

  1. Bay’s Inn’s Hungry Surfer Restaurant

Location: Buton Street

Our accommodation package in Casitas Bed and Breakfast included a buffet breakfast at the Hungry Surfer Restaurant, run by its sister-lodge, Bay’s Inn. It was a hearty breakfast of garlic rice, eggs, Baler longganisa, tocino and pako salad. Bread, suman and coffee are available as well as juices and iced tea. What’s nice about the Hungry Surfer Restaurant is that it provides a lovely morning view of Sabang Beach.

Hungry from walking along Sabang Beach, we stopped by here for merienda. They offer one of the best seafood marinara we have ever had. Their club sandwich and shakes were also notable.
