Calamares Fritos at the Anahaw Island View Resort

Last Saturday, we hied off to Calapan Oriental Mindoro for my friend's birthday and a short vacation. My friend's family owns a resort there, the Anahaw Island View Resort. The resort has great accommodations, a spectacular view of the beach and nearby islands, comical mascots, exciting watersports, and of course, wonderful food.

They serve a wide variety of Native Filipino cuisine and other popular international dishes. Our favorite is the Calamares Fritos. It has a delicious and crunchy outer shell and cooked just right so that the squid inside remains tender and juicy. It is served with three choices of dips- sweet chili sauce, spicy vinegar, and wasabi mayo. We ordered two platters of the calamares with our drinks while we played cards by the beach after spending the whole afternoon in the water. It was the best vacation I've had in a long time.
