|The interesting entrance to Mang Inato|
We complained that we haven't been to any delicious food places near our hotel since we arrived so we asked for suggestions from almost everyone we met that day. We got vague answers at first but we finally pieced together an itinerary for a food trip that very same day.
So in between the difficulty of vague names and directions and the difficulty of travelling with Palawan's unpredictable weather at this time of year, we safely arrived at our first destination - Mang Inato.
We had passed by it and had to take a U-Turn in our tricycle. It was hidden from view but if you are on the right side of the 4-lane highway, then you won't miss the interesting entrance to the resto.
When we go thru the gate, we are greeted by an even more quaint interior. An inviting bench awaited us at the corner and we would have sat down except there were more interesting things to take pictures of.

The pancit canton was warm with soft but firm noodles and crispy veggies. The shrimp was cooked just right too without the fishy smell. The sauce was a little on the runny side but it was flavorful nonetheless.
Our shakes we're not too sweet and the texture of the whole thing reminds one of the texture of the famous halo-halo from Razon's. The whole thing was easy to sip, no lumps to interrupt your satisfaction, just brain-freeze every now and then. The best thing was, it was served in a big glass so we felt very satisfied instead of wanting more after finishing the whole glass. But of course we wanted to taste more so we're heading back here again when we come back for a vacation.
But our experience didn't end here. We went inside to check out the rest of the resto's interiors and we thought we were transported to Bali.
