After climbing Bud Bongao, we were so tired and hungry! Hahaha! So, we directed our tricycle to the town center for us to have lunch. While walking around the busy streets of Bongao, we searched for something to eat that are quite new to us. One will not fail to notice the strong Malay influences here. We saw this sidewalk restaurant that mainly serves Malaysian food. So, we went in to order some food.
Since Tawi-tawi is very near Malaysia, it is not surprising to know that some products sold here are from Malaysia and restaurants serves Malaysian cuisines. At one point, I felt like I was in a different country. :)
Clueless as to what Malaysian food are, we asked the server what she can suggest for us to try. Here are the dishes we tried.
Mee Goreng Ayam Daging is basically spicy fried noodles with Chicken and Beef. This one is very filling. A serving costs 45.00 pesos each.
Nasih Goreng Pataya Ayam Daging is a rice meal with Chicken and Beef and then covered with egg. A serving which is good for 2 costs 60.00 pesos.
Mee Hailam Ayam Daging is also a noodle dish with Chicken and Beef in soy-oyster base soup. A serving costs 55.00 pesos each.
I love all of the dishes we had! So, if you're looking for where to eat in Bongao, just walk around its busy streets and find a Malaysian restaurant offering sumptuous Malay cuisines. I highly recommend that you try these food stalls when visiting Bongao, Tawi-tawi.
From Manila, take a 2-hour flight to Zamboanga City. From there you may take a 45-minute plane ride that lands in Sanga-Sanga airport then take a tricycle to Bongao town proper. You may also opt to take a ferry boat from Zamboanga Port to Bongao. Trips are three times a week.
