11 Reasons why Real Street is the Ultimate Tourist Hotspot in Coron

Premium Room at Treetop Suites

Real Street: Coron’s Lifestyle Hub

It’s no secret that the pandemic affected most Coron businesses, leading to some establishments’ temporary and permanent closure. On the brighter side, more SMEs are slowly recovering from the wrath of the pandemic, with local artisans and businesses bouncing back in recent months. 

One of the places that survived is Real Street of Coron, Palawan. Dubbed the “High Street of Coron,” Real Street is a one-stop destination for tourists to chill, eat, drink, and party with friends. It’s very easy to find as it’s centrally located in the town of Coron. It’s close to the fire station, municipal hall, public market, and much more.

One of the things I like the most about my stay at their stylish Premium Family Room is my own private space. It’s more spacious than other rooms and is well-equipped with a separate shower and toilet, a cozy living space, an extended work area, a mini refrigerator, an electric water kettle, and a safety deposit box. To cap off my stay, I had a relaxing dip at their lounge pool with a jacuzzi to soothe my tired body after a full day of island-hopping.

Sample artisanal pizza and pastries at Chowline

Chowline Sisig Pizza
Chowline Sisig Pizza

Food delivery in Coron isn’t as popular as it is in Manila. Not many food delivery platforms are available on the island. Thus, Chef Eric and Nestlie Hermes, owners of Chowline, wanted to introduce this service to tourists and locals of Coron. Their restaurant Chowline is best known for pizzas and pastries, which are available online, thus becoming a hit among island foodies. Their bestselling Sisig Pizza uses slow-roasted, locally-sourced liempo to create the signature dish. As much as possible, they source their ingredients from local growers and artisans in a way to help the local economy.

Wine and Dine at Get Real Bar & Restaurant

One of the pioneer establishments on Real Street is Get Real Bar & Restaurant, situated at the ground level of Treetop Suites. It’s known for its Filipino-Mexican food, like tacos and burritos.

While on the island, I had the opportunity to sample their bestsellers. My favorite was, no doubt, the tacos, which are made with jalapeno, nachos, cheese sauce, and homemade pico de gallo. The meat they used is minced in slightly sweet adobo sauce, garnished with lettuce, and wrapped in a fresh tortilla. We also tasted their Chicken Chipotle which was juicy and filling. Meanwhile, their Angus burger slider was a crowd favorite because of the perfect combination of Angus beef, caramelized onions, and mozzarella cheese. Lastly, we tried their Butter Garlic Lime Seared Salmon, which had the perfect zest in every bite.

As a certified foodie, I couldn’t help but try their other dishes, which were all surprisingly electable. Everything on their menu is worth ordering because they’re all appetizing, filling, and affordable. Get Real Bar & Restaurant is a must-try, from snacks to the main course to the desserts. It’s definitely the place I’d come back to.

A trip to the island can be very expensive, with all the activities and accommodations to book. The good thing is you can still eat within your budget without going hungry.

I’ve been to so many coffee shops in Coron, but for me, Epic Cafe serves the best coffee in town. Though it’s more expensive than others, the quality of their beans and the taste of their freshly brewed coffee is just worth the price. My personal favorite is Tagbanua Coffee, a specialty coffee carefully roasted in brown sugar by Tagbanua tribes in Coron. Aside from coffee, they also offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Coffee lovers will surely love this cafe which also supports the local community of Coron!

The best part of Calle Real is its laid-back vibe that draws guests to come and unwind in the neighborhood. With several dining establishments to choose from, one wouldn’t have difficulty finding somewhere to eat. Need coffee in the morning? Epic Cafe is the answer. Craving Japanese? Try Get Real Izakaya. Looking for sumptuous meals and drinks? Real Street has Chowline, Calle Burgos, Get Real, and Poco Deli. Whatever flavor you’re craving, there’s a spot in these restaurants for you. 

Aside from these dining spots, Real Street has nearby ATMs, drugstores, tour operators, dive shops, Standup paddleboard Rentals, souvenir stores, and spas–all for everyone’s convenience.

More than the beaches of Coron, Real Street can be considered a landmark in the town. It’s a place where people can indulge in good food and booze and enjoy the company with friends. But most of all, I think what makes Real Street in Coron the heart of the town is the community of local business owners helping each other to survive by promoting each others’ businesses and ensuring that the place is fun, safe, and relaxing for every guest.
