We were looking for a place to eat different than our diving resort, so we decided to go into town and find a place. We had a look at Anilao Shark Bait Bar and Grill but it looked a bit sketchy so our divemaster suggested...we try Frido's in Mabini and we were very happy! We ordered the Pork Back Ribs and they were absolutely amazing, perhaps the best I have ever had. We also had the buttered prawns and the chicken teriyaki, which were also quite good. Plus rice, 2 orders of fries and 4 San Mig beers, total came to 1000 pesos for 3 people, so about $8 each.
The atmosphere is very nice inside, quiet, with nice decor. Probably this is the only place in Mabini that would appeal to Westerners. Other options seemed very low-budget.
If you are near Mabini, definitely give this place a try.More
