Saltitude Dive & Beach Resort is all about relaxing, soaking up the coastal chic vibe and having fun in the crystal clear water. You can take your pick from their awesome water activities or simply plop down into one of their comfort pillows, read a good book in hand and chill. 

Mingle Restaurant at Saltitude Dive & Beach Resort Anilao

Saltitude Dive & Beach Resort also recently launched “Brunchin’@ the Beach” at their Mingle restaurant where they are serving an array of intercontinental cuisines. Stepping into their restaurant almost feels like you’re being transported to a quaint Greek dining hall. There were colorful machuca tiles that lined the tables of the restaurant, while the walls were adorned with rustic stone washed details.

Yes, don't miss the opportunity to dine on a delicious locally-prepared brunch buffet ranging from fresh fish, roasted meats, canapes, Flipino all-time favorite viands, some international cuisines and satisfying desserts. Complete your meal with authentic Kapeng Barako [Batangas brewed coffee] or a glass of orange juice or simply a glass of iced water infused with cucumber and lemon, this is the best way to spend a lovely day against a gorgeous, blissful Anilao beach backdrop. Beer and alcohol drinkers would also be happy to know that the restaurant includes a selection of beer, housepour wines and spirits.

As a foodie, I can actually go as far as this side of Batangas to try their “Brunchin’@the Beach” buffet concept. I have to say that my companions and I were not disappointed at all. We were pleasantly greeted by a rather interesting and open layout of the restaurant. Dining al fresco with only the sound of the wind chimes and the sea breeze is very relaxing not only to my ears but also to my soul. The food served were fresh, dishes were very good and some even exceeded beyond our expectations.

Unlike other beach restaurants I went to, even if almost all the tables at the restaurant were filled up. The place wasn’t buzzing with the constant chatter of patrons, it felt so comforting listening to the occasional sounds of the wind chimes and the ocean breeze that seemed to reckon you.

Their restaurant offers a wide variety of international cuisine – from appetizers, soup and fresh seafood, to roasts, local favourites and desserts. All these delights are nicely spread across the food stations which are quite nicely spaced out from one another. So, do take note that you may need to do a fair bit of walking to get from one station to the next. Well, at least this helps you digest the food before digging in to the next plate.

Saltitude Salmon Bruschetta is also my favorite

We also had the opportunity to try the selected dishes from their Brunchin’@ the beach menu. The said menu was put together by the owner, Ms. Malou Esparrago together with their in-house chef. Nothing was highly spiced, which allowed the flavours to shine. Would recommend more anytime of the day, and definitely a must-visit.

Japanese maki rolls

Chewy puto and kutsinta with grated coconut is perfect combination

Champorado chocolate rice porridge with crispy dilis [anchovy] is a hit for everyone!

I loved the Halaan [Clam] Soup so much that she managed to finish the entire bowl (for someone who’s not really fond of shellfish, that’s quite an accomplishment!). I loved their steamed fish—so fresh and it had none of the ‘fishy’ after taste. Revel in their array of Japanese maki rolls or Chinese siomai. I also liked the fact that they had Pinoy dishes for diners especially those with foreign guests to try and enjoy. The champorado had the option to top it with crispy dilis [crispy fried anchovy]. There’s also the Pinoy favorite pork adobo. I also enjoyed the puto and chewy kutsinta with grated coconut.

Pinoy favorite: Pork Adobo

 For the Italian station, I also enjoyed their spicy version of Aglio Olio. The dish is made lightly with sautéed minced garlic in olive oil and dried red chili flakes tossed in spaghetti pasta. They stayed pretty true to the classic method of slowly tossing the garlic slices into the pasta. But please make room for their Lasagna. It was filling and satisfying from my first spoonful of the dish. With fresh basil, sausage, ground beef and oozing melted cheese, you can never go wrong with their lasagna. If Garfield the popular cat character would  be visiting Saltitude, for sure he’d also go crazy over their lasagna like I did. For Garfield fanatic, you surely know it’s his favorite food.

American spread consists of jams, hotdogs, pancakes, bacon and omelette

Don't forget the cheese and bread at theirAll-American spread

Oh and please make room for desserts. Mingle restaurant serves one of the best tasting leche flans I’ve ever had. They also have Buko Pandan. I’m no fan of Buko, but I loved their buko pandan.

You can enjoy all these dishes and more. For only Php699 per pax, diners can enjoy a well-curated spread of buffet dishes with a weekly themed cuisine.
Since Mingle restaurant is a casual dining place, there’s no need to slip on your favourite cocktail dress and heels. Putting on a nice and comfy tank-and-jeans combo, casual dress or even in your swimsuit will suffice. Yes, you can focus enjoying your meal amidst such a relaxing atmosphere at Mingle restaurant.

And it’s also nice to come during the summertime where they serve BBQ during Saturday beach night. They would fire up beach bonfires at sunset. All you need to do is grab a beanbag and toast some marshmallows for that s’mores you’ve been jonesing for. Is there a better way to end the day?
