A trip to Puerto Princesa wouldn't be complete without tasting the Tamilok. This worm-looking creature is actually a mollusk that thrives on rotten mangrove wood. It is usually eaten as a ceviche—soaked fresh in vinegar and lime juice. Those with stronger stomachs can opt to eat it raw, however. It can also be grilled or dipped in batter and deep-fried. Its texture can be described as soft, slimy, and very chewy. Most restaurants have this in their menu, but for travelers who want it newly harvested, the people behind the Mangrove Paddleboat Tour can find one for you. Just let them know a day in advance.
These delicious, hearty nuts can be found in either roasted, salted, or chili flavor in the local market and souvenir shops. You can get a glimpse on how these are manually produced in the backyard of humble and cheerful women in Barangay San Jose. The best time to buy cashews are when they are in season, between May and June.
Located inside MCA Market Mall Pasalubong Center, MBA Pearls and Accessories is a one-stop shop for Palawan souvenirs, offering a wide array of products from home decor to dried fish. The native delicacies are sourced from local suppliers nearby. MBA Pearls and Accessories rose to fame in 2012 for carrying authentic jewelry made from South Sea pearls. Prices depend on the pearl's size and quality, with the smallest retailing at P1,000 a piece.
