Pito’s SUTOKIL: A Not-So Hidden Gem in Camotes Island

Food and Travel is like Yin & Yang, it goes hand in hand in every adventure. To travel and enjoy good food is what feeds and fuels our lust for adventure.  We travel because we want to explore new places and so the hunt for good food goes along with it. 

We had an early family Valentine getaway in the Island of Camotes. Thanks to a generous sponsor, we booked our stay at island’s top resort, Santiago Bay Garden & Resort. Though the place is not new to us since we’ve stayed here 5 years ago, it felt like the first time seeing the huge improvement in the resort. A lot, really a lot has changed at the resort but the place we used to consider a hidden gem and a haven few years back is still the same, serving the best and most delectable SuToKil (Sugba Tola Kilaw).

Pito’s SuToKil

This has been our food haven during our vacation few years back and it’s still was our haven on our recent visit. This small family-owned and budget-friendly eatery is located in the vast shoreline of the Santiago Bay. At Pito’s you get to eat freshly caught and cooked food that is to die for.

An island visit would be incomplete if you wont get to experience their best-selling SUTOKIL (Sugba-Tola-Kilaw)

Other must-try dishes are their Shrimp Sinigang, Sisig, Sizzling Squid, Sizzling Gambas and Calamares. And to cool you off, go try their Buko, Fruit Shakes and Halo Halo.

Although most of the resorts offer sumptuous foods, Pito’s is one place that you should not miss to visit.  The food is great and affordable and the breathtaking view of the ocean makes your dining experience a memorable one.

Planning to visit the island this summer and experience the best of Pito’s SuToKil? Check our quick guide below.

Getting to Pito’s SuToKil

Pitos Sutokil

The best landmark for the place is the nearby resort which is the Santiago Bay Garden & Resort. Upon reaching Consuelo Wharf, take a habal-habal or a multi-cab. Fare is 50 pesos. The eatery is just beside the resort. You can ask the locals in the area, the place is notable and they would gladly accompany you if needed.

Getting To Camotes Island

The most recommended means of transportation in going to the island of Camotes is through the sea since there is no available airport in the island. Most of those who travel to Camotes Island take the Danao – Consuelo route (thru Jomalia Shipping Lines), though there are options available but this is the most affordable route.

  • From North Bus Terminal, take a bus to Danao. Fare is around 30 Pesos.
  • If you want a shorter route, take the PUV (#27) or V-Hire in SM City Cebu
