Where do you get an affordable and decent meal in Boracay amidst the COVID-19 pandemic? Unfortunately, many restaurants have remained closed. No fret! A few have remained open to serve. Enjoy Boracay. No need to shell out more money. Below are my top three choices of food establishments where you can get a budget meal for as low as 100 pesos per head.

By the way, their Chicken Tinola is my personal favorite. They serve snacks and short orders, too.

They have a number of branches spread across Boracay.
Although, I am not sure if all branches reopened. I got to visit only two branches in Station 2: the one inside D’Mall and the one near Laketown.

Aside from their deep-fried chicken, Andok’s serve other equally satisfying yet inexpensive Filipino dishes.
