Following its six-month rest, a “new” Boracay has finally allowed the rest of the world to see its beauty. While its rehabilitation phase continues, the change in the island is truly evident. Upon your arrival at the island’s main port, you’ll be welcomed with a giant picturesque Boracay icon. You’ll also definitely notice the wider roads from Cagban Port to the main areas of the island. But hold your expectations since the construction is still ongoing.

Beyond its scenic beauty, one thing we missed about the island is its expansive gastronomic flair. Here are some restaurants ready to serve you once again.

1. Nonie’s

Healthy and sustainable. That’s what Nonie’s want their customers to remember about their place. Following its reopening after the closure, Nonie’s is adding Vegan sisig (a dish usually made from chopped parts of pig head and liver) on their menu. Their sisig is made of mushroom, tofu, onions, and spices. They also have vegan longganisa (Filipino-style sausage), that’s why they are known for serving a healthier version of our favorite Filipino dishes. If you’re a meat lover, you can still taste their own version of chicken and pork adobo cooked Cavite-style, and other meat dishes with a twist. They invest in sustainability by using mostly locally sourced products. [1]

In fact, the restaurant located at the beachfront in Station 3 remained open during the closure.
