No beach get-away is perfect without replenishing yourself with gastronomic treats. Most of times, you bring your own processed or canned goods and cook it either in your camping set or make-shift stove. A better alternative would be to buy freshly-caught sea foods from the local fisherman and grill it or cook in a way you want with whatever ingredients available.
But in this Calaguas Trip, we were lucky to be hosted by Vinzon's Tourism officer, so that basically means, do your thing on the beach and let them prepare your food. Well, who am I to complain? Let's eat!
Crunchy dried espada, itlog na maalat, local sausage, fried rice and hot chocolate drink greeted us for breakfast.
Sinigang na hipon, adobong tanigue, ginisang ampalaya, steamed rice and fruits made-up this filling lunch.
Grilled pork chops, sinantol with hipon, ginataang marlin with steamed rice and fruits sum-up dinner time.

This one I cooked myself. Milky sopas with corned beef and left-over hotdogs from last night's bon fire camaraderie.
Of all the food served us, the Sinantol is my favorite because it is a native Bicol delicacy and that was the very first time I have tasted it. Simply the best.
