We had our lunch in Pananayan Canteen and Catering Services which is located in Morong Beach. The day before we visited the restaurant, they had fire which engulf all of their kitchen. But even though the tragic incident happened, they served all of their customers well.
The owners of Pananayan Pension House and Pananayan Canteen and Catering Services are just the same.

Pananayan Canteen and Catering Services
It is highly advised that a reservation is made before dining in Pananayan because the seats are limited.
Good thing we booked through Amazing Batanes Tours so we did not worry about anything.
A simple but nice table setting is arranged for each guests.
A set meal costs Php 350 per person. Yes, it may be a bit expensive, but take note that Sabtang is an island. Food in Sabtang were transported from Basco, which were also transported from nearby provinces like Aparri, which is located in the main island of Luzon.
Not in the picture, a set meal includes juices in different flavors. There are also 2 rice options, plain steamed rice, and Turmeric Rice.
Sauteed veggies which includes Carrots and Chayote.
Fried Tilapia with sweet and sour sauce.
Crispy fried Pork bites with a little bit of seasoning.
Sinigang na Panga
This dish is made out of fish (probably tuna but I am not sure) in sour broth.
For dessert, we had Bukayo, local snack which is made out of brown sugar and Coconut meat.
Happy and Busy’s Smileys
The set meal were delicious.
It is very accessible from our hotel. Plus, it is just beside Morong Beach.
It is beside Morong Beach, so the laid-back vibe is still there.
Value for money
Food is delicious but are not that affordable.
