Just like any travel, it was my goal to taste their food. On top of my list was their famous Chaolong.
Chaolong is a Vietnamese noodle dish, which is very popular in Puerto Princesa. History tells us that there were many Vietnamese refugees who fled to Palawan and brought their native cuisine.
Here’s a photo of the place.
I did not have a private car to tour me to the place. But I was ready to take on the adventure of trying the local public transportation. I rented a tricycle I asked the driver not to bring me to an expensive chaolongan (what they call places who serve chaolong) but to the most common go-to of the public. I wanted to experience it the way the locals do. He did.
They say chaolong goes well with French bread so I tried both. It was a very fulfilling experience. It almost felt like I traveled to Vietnam, which I dream of doing someday.
