Soon the pigs were turning a golden hue with the patient manual rotation by these two men.
A couple more hours and the "lechon" will be on the buffet table. We ate dinner at another restaurant, Mesa, where we savored their specialty - tinapa rolls along with what else, tinapa rice and fried tilapia. Tinapa is a tiny smoked fish. My friends and I thought the food at Mesa was quite good and reasonably priced. It also has a nice ambiance and is steps above the seashore.
We didn't tire of walking along the beach during the two days we spent in Boracay. There were many tourists although October is typically low season. We had fun people watching while resting our feet and sipping our ice cold juices. We also bought souvenirs at the stalls in Talipapa (just behind our hotel) where we found hats and wraps to wear on the beach.
Can you believe they have a bar named Obama? Cheers!
