We had dinner in a mall for the first time in our string of travel days. We dined at Hainanese Delights  located in the Robinson's Mall, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan... The food is great and refreshing to our tastebuds, especially the ginger-infused rice and steamed chicken.

No love affair between me and the Chao Long

By GERLIE M. UY


I tried one Chao Long (P45 for regular and P50 for with egg) and I wished to have tried other stalls selling the same to see to it I have had the representative Chao Long, a Vietnamese dish popular in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. The taste is lightly sweet and it has no chili in it despite the red color. I cannot also get the taste of real meat stock in the soup....  But incidentally, I love the french bread which sells for ten pesos and can be ordered with meat sandwich at an extra cost.






  This is the beef stew.
