KALUI: Famous Palawan Resto
To enjoy and make the best of our vacation in Puerto Princesa, we had dinner in Kalui. You need to make a reservation before going for lunch/dinner. Dinner reservation is only 6pm and 8pm. You can ask your hotel receptionist to make the reservation for you and leave a deposit of 1000php (the staff of Kalui will pick it up in the hotel). But in our case, we just call Kalui for reservation. This is just 15-20 minutes away from PP Airport.
Before entering the resto, you should take off your foot wears and place it on a basket. The ambiance of Kalui was so relaxing and very impressive! It was made of woods, their floors are well-polished, very creative interior design, such as the fruit decorations and different art pieces. They also have mini gallery inside. I choose the table where you can sit in the cushion lay on the floor and near the entrance with a open view of their mini garden. (July 5, 2012)
|It's the 1st table reserved for us, but dadi & mami was not able to join our dinner, coz they were tired.|
|Tito & Tita|
|I, BF, sister, Tita, Tito|
|Kalui Special of the Day (P400 something)- Blue marlin, prawns, veggies of the day kangkong, spicy squid, rice and seaweed starter. They serve it for 2 but actually 4-5 persons could share.|
|Seaweed (It was my first time to eat seaweed. Hehe)|
|Sizzling Seafood Sisig (P170) - squid, shrimp, fish.|
|Sinigang ni Kaka (P200)- shrimp sinigang in buko juice. Parang minatamis na sinigang ang lasa, kinda weird, but tastes good too.|
|Wheatgrass in Coco Juice and Palawan honey (P70) Fresh Buko Shake (P70)|
|After eating our main dish, they served us a dessert “fruits in muscovado” (banana, pineapple, papaya on top of coconut's half shelf). I don’t have an idea that it’s for free! . :)|
Kalui is truly one of the must visit resto when you travel in Puerto Princesa Palawan.
