Travel: Beautiful Batanes Trip Day 3 (Last Day on the Island)


What do I do on the last day of each travel and tour? Review my gastronomic experiences.


I had my first Ivatan cuisine experience on Batanes Day 1 at Hiro’s Cafe. I was served (1) uvud balls made with pork, flying fish and banana tree stalk plus (2) vunes or dried gabi.

Lunch on Day 2 was a quick break from the day-long Batan Island Tour.
Lunch was inclusive of Coconut Crab.

My dinner on Day 2 at Fundacion Pacita was my favorite. Sinigang with tender beef (meat would literally separate from the bone).
