MUST TRY! Here are out Top 5 Must Eat Places in Dumaguete City

Dumaguete has a lot to offer, from beaches, world class diving spots, resorts, mountains, and our favorite FOOD. Dumaguete is also known as a “university town”, therefore students prefer some alternative options for their day to day needs. Not to mention the high volume of backpacker tourists and foreign retirees.

One of Dumaguete’s old time favorites. Classic Filipino cusine. Must try is their Buttered Chicken. It is also one of the few restos that is open 24 hours (except on Sundays).

Hold on! This is not the japanese kind of Tempura. This uniquely Dumaguete tempura is a larger version of “Kikiam” but with shrimp flavor. Make sure you dip it into hot sauce. 🙂

Mamahaw ta! Who says chocolate and sticky rice don’t mix for breakfast? Well Dumaguetenos will prove them wrong. Puto (not the Tagalog one) is a glutinous rice consumed with hot cocoa (Tablea). Also try Bod-bod Kabog with fresh mangoes by the side. 🙂

Imagine have an ice cold drink and listening to reggae music right beside the sea. Doesn’t it sound like heaven? Hayahay is the Cebuano word for relax or simply “chill”. Our recommendation: Baked Scallops, Baked Talaba, Pizza, Dumaguete Express, and everything else. 🙂

So far the most favorite by the local tourists. This resto is for the sweet tooth. Our top recommendation is the famous Silvanas and Sans Rival. Other must try is the concord cake. Don’t forget to buy your pasalubongs here.
