Tawi-tawi has ar­guably the fresh­est seafood any­where. Go to the pub­lic mar­ket and see for your­self! They of­fer a wide va­ri­ety of fish, squid, oc­to­pus, rays, ed­i­ble seaweed, shell­fish. Sug­ges­tion: buy fresh seafood from the mar­ket and have it cooked at the Beach­side Inn!

Do try Tawi-tawi's Mus­lim del­i­ca­cies, such as tam­paran ( the lo­cal hot cake), pi­tis ( akin to su­man) and pa­song ( cone-shaped sticky rice cake). If you're dar­ing about seafood, try the agal-agal, a dish of guso, lato, cu­cum­ber, onion, toasted grated co­conut meat, and spices.

Tap water, it should be noted, is safe in Bon­gao. It is sourced from ground­wa­ter and is dis­trib­uted us­ing modern fa­cil­i­ties. For queasy stom­achs, on the other hand, bot­tled water is avail­able in town.
