Aklan Philippine Buffet & Grocery

$$$$

There’s a good chance that even after Google Maps says, “You have arrived,” Aklan Buffet and Sushi will be nowhere to be found. This Filipino canteen is actually located within an indoor plaza that houses a Marshalls department store, but it’s worth taking a few extra minutes to find it. Jocelyn Cabangil and her husband, a former cruise ship employee, started it (named after her home province) seven years ago to cater to Filipino cruise ship workers. It’s buffet-style, where for $10 you can choose from a variety of dishes on a small steel cart, like vegetable lumpia, fried bangus (milkfish), stir-fried ampalaya (bitter gourd) with egg, salmon sinigang (sour tamarind soup), laing (taro leaves in coconut milk), and lechon kawali (crispy fried pork belly). All orders, which you can refill at any time, are served on styrofoam plates and bowls. Tables and chairs are on the plaza itself, also fronting a Filipino grocery store, Fil Trip, run by the owners’ daughter, which sells everything from cookies and chips to salabat (ginger tea). And keep in mind that both establishments currently only accept cash or Zelle.
