Kasbah Boracay Moroccan Restaurant

Kasbah Bar and Restaurant
Kasbah (or Qassabah as it is pronounced) is an Arabic term that means fortress. It’s also the only place in Boracay where you can have your fill of exquisite Moroccan cuisine. Back in December, we spent a weekend in Boracay and one of the places where we dined was Kasbah Moroccan Bar and Restaurant. It’s located in Station 1 near Discovery Shores.

I wasn’t too familiar with Moroccan cuisine so I didn’t know what to expect. Moroccan food use an assortment of spices including mint, olives, paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, chillies, lavender, and saffron which is considered as the most expensive spice out there. It was dinner time when we arrived at Kasbah.

SEAIR flies to Kota Kinabalu

I first read about this in the Inquirer newspaper during the first week of January. The article was entitled “Paradise to Paradise route now open”. As its first international flight, South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) now flies weekly from Puerto Princesa to Kota Kinabalu. Flight time is roughly an hour.

Spending a weekend in Boracay during the holidays

The last time I visited Boracay was with my wife Gail during our wedding anniversary vacation trip last November. It was more of a time-off from work. We needed a weekend getaway break so badly that time. But we made the mistake of bringing a laptop so we ended up doing a bit of work under the Boracay sun. Here’s another photo which Gail took (using her Canon Powershot G10) from that trip:
