Boracay’s best food spots are coming to your neighborhood
A good meal for a good cause
May 14, 2018
As you may well be aware, Boracay is currently closed to tourists for a six-month rehabilitation. The sudden close-down left many of Boracay’s residents and workers without a source of income. Although the government has promised that there are (enough) funds to aid the people who have lost their means of livelihood, there’s still a need for something more certain and stable in the meantime.
Some of Boracay’s most loved restaurants are flying in to Manila for several pop-ups, aiming to help provide additional income for their workers—the chefs, waiters, and other staff—that are currently out of work.
So if you’re feeling a bit adventurous with your food and you’re looking for new food spots to try, check out these Boracay pop-ups (plus some of our personal favorites from each restaurant):
