Lemoni Cafe & Restaurant, Boracay


During our trip in Boracay, we had 3 very delicious and memorable meals, in Lemoni Cafe & Restaurant, Mesa and Andok’s. So today I’m going to share about Lemoni Cafe first since that was one of the first we went to under the recommendation of my friend’s friend who apparently ate there almost the entire trip Hah…

lemon i cafe mango and coconut shake

Mango Crush, Coconut Shake and Mango Lemon Crush; refreshing for a hot weather, or just by the beach. Coconut and mangoes are abundant in Boracay so we can’t help but to have almost buko (coconut) and mango everyday!

Lemoni Cafe serves a rather modern and healthy cuisine with vibrant colours, refreshing beverages and delicious desserts. Lemoni Café opened its doors in 2005 and has since been named one of Boracays most refreshing restaurants. Awarded 5 years in a row in Philippine Tatlers best restaurants issue.

Inspired from the Lemon family; Lime, Calamansi, Dalandan, Pomelo, Orange, Grape Fruit and Lemongrass, be prepared to find them in your dish or dessert.

The beverage selection is styled to complement and refresh ranging from the normal shakes with an extra twist like watermelon and ginger ans well as well priced wine list of new and old world wines. Cakes, pies, cookies and pastries are all baked from scratch in their kitchen are also one of the famous ones in Boracay Island.

lemon i cafe salmon baby potatoes

We were famished on that day so we went straight for their main courses to satisfy our stomachs!

Here we have a Norwegian Salmon with Lemon Thyme marble Potatoes and Hollandaise. (php 550) The salmon was a little more than done but it was still juicy. The baby potatoes were well roasted with crispy skin and soft creamy interior. Salmon and Hollandaise sauce works well together and the Hollandaise didn’t taste that it came from powder. It was buttery and tart from the lemon juice.

mahi mahi fish

I had the Pan Fried Mahi-Mahi with warm potato salad and lemon butter garlic sauce (php390). The fish was a little dry but the warm potato salad with capers, lemon, butter, garlic and some tomatoes and capsicum was really yummy. Usually potato salad comes with mayo or some kinda creamy sauce, but here, it was refreshing and seemed somewhat healthy.

lemon i cafe grilled pork chop

Another friend had the Grilled pork chops, sautéed vegetable’s and yogurt mint sauces (pho 390)I didn’t have much of this but according to my friend, it was really flavourful and one of the yummiest. Actually I just realized that all the dishes that she said was nice, she said that it was really flavourful. Haha

lemon i cafe mango juice

Scorching sun and crazy weather calls for more refreshing drinks, my friend got a black coffee while I got a citrus fruit drink, quite similar to the thai mandarin orange with outer green skin and orange flesh. Pardon my bad holiday memory, I can’t remember what it was called. :/

Anyway, that was all we ate for lunch, oh no. We also had a coconut pina colada and coffee AND desserts at night after we had a rather sad dinner (that ended us dining in the dark because there was a blackout, two times)

lemon i lemon meringue tart

If your sweet tooth ventures into the sour and tangy field of sweetness, then get ready to pucker up with the Classic Lemon Meringue (P160). I don’t remember having a great lemon meringue tart in my home country, often I find great desserts when I travel and this would be one of them. The curd is rather tart, but balanced with the mild sweetness from the perfectly whipped meringue, elegantly torched for it’s crisp and caramelized flavour. The crust was crumbly and buttery, baked to golden brown. I would recommend this to anyone that is in Boracay. 

lemon i cafe mango cake

What’s this thing with me and mango! Their Mango Madness (P150) showcases their national fruit (really? Is mango Philippines’ national fruit?) in a soft and creamy mini cake, with compacted buttery digestive biscuits. It’s a light and mellow dessert to end your meal there in Lemoni Cafe.

There are more selections of desserts in the cafe, all looking deliciously scrumptious. And, they also have a section for ‘overnight’ desserts that sells at a cheaper price. Good for being honest?

lemon i cafe cocktail

Cocktails are never a miss when travelling, so how about a coconut pina colada to end the night!

Travel: Spider House, Boracay Island


I can’t help but to keep telling people about this place, Spider House in Boracay Island. It’s one of the unique places to stay because the house / rooms are made with bamboo and wood, like a huge open-plan tree house built on the rocks at the base of a mountain directly over the sea. It blends in naturally with its surroundings.

We stayed here for 2 nights before heading to the main White Beach.

The best feature  could be that you can dive straight into the sea from the deck and watch spectacular sunsets from one of the best spots on the island while enjoying a cocktail from our bar.

Travel: Getting to Boracay from KL


After coming back from Krabi and met Lulu, I’ve got inspiration to do more travel posts. I realized I never really did put up all my travelling posts. I try to travel to 2 places in a year, this year will be extra special as I’ll be going to 4.. no.. 8 cities 😉 So yup, I will put more travelling posts cause travelling is so so fun, so I hope my posts will be able to help you, in some way or another.

Now, let’s do with Boracay. Won’t be too many posts as there wasn’t many places that we went. So bear with me 😉

I went to Boracay on 23rd to 28th April 2014.

Boracay is an island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km (200 miles) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. The Boracay Island and it’s beaches were awarded for many times. Boracay was awarded in the “Travelers’ Choice 2011” by TripAdvisor as the second best beach (out of 25) in the world. Boracay made a debut appearance on the Top 10 Islands list in the Travel + Leisure travel magazine World’s Best Awards 2011.

We took AirAsia to Kalibo Airport, which is just 2 hours away from Boracay Island. Previously before AA has launched to Kalibo Airport, one can fly to Manila, stay overnight, or take a local flight to Caticlan Airport which should probably take less than 1hr to Boracay Island.
