The Philippines' First All-Opinion Website

January 12, 2019


I just came from a holiday in El Nido and had the chance to visit the town proper for the first time. It was a quaint little town, and was amazed as it is very close to the limestone rock formations famous in Palawan. There were, of course, a lot of souvenir shops. Some are even managed by foreigners. There were restaurants (that serve Ukranian, vegetarian, Mediterranean food), a delicatessen, to a 27-year-old local bakery, and so much more!

But to my surprise, I saw some really fun restaurant names using word play. I was so amused discovering these restaurants. Here are some of my finds while exploring El Nido’s town proper.

Even a sign at El Nido’s airport entrance of commandments for visitors had some word play.

Yes, wordplay has reached El Nido town, and I hope to be back soon to discover more!
