What’s Hidden Behind Romblon’s Unbeatable Natural Beauty

What’s more intriguing about the province are the sumptuous delicacies. And for a bite to eat, try province palatable Sarsa, a dish filled with small shrimps blended with chili and young coconut. Sihi shells, popular local seafood, may also tickle your taste buds. For a tantalizing taste, try the dish’s priciest seafood, bananas sliced in half with the shell still intact.
