Pearl Farm Marina
Lanang, Davao City
I guess we were too excited to get to Pearl Farm Beach Resort in Samal Island that I set the alarm at 5 a.m. We were instructed to be at the Marina thirty (30) minutes before boarding time which is 8 a.m. But lo and behold, BF and I were among the early birds. So we decided to have breakfast at the Marina to kill time.
Filipino breakast fare: pan de sal (or garlic rice), scrambled eggs, beef tapa & coffee (not in the pic)
We also decided to share the breakfast plate since we wanted to reserve as much as tummy space as we could to fully enjoy the buffet lunch at the resort. For crying out loud, the breakfast plate was worth Php 450!
Every breakfast meal comes with fruits in season.
