Dipolog City: Barbecue Stalls along Dipolog Sunset Boulevard

DIPOLOG CITY, Zamboanga del Norte - Almost all restaurants in Dipolog City closes at 9:00pm except for some that stay open until midnight during weekends. But what if you wake up in the middle of the night or your insomnia keeps you awake in the wee hours of the night, and suddenly you feel hungry? The barbecue stalls along Dipolog Sunset Boulevard has got you covered.


As soon as the sun sets, people start flocking at the barbecue stalls and by dinner time, the place is practically packed. Filipinos are crazy about barbecue at night, and this more pronounced in Mindanao, such as in Dipolog and other cities like Iligan, Cagayan de Oro and Tagum, where the night market culture is very much integrated into their daily lives.


All the stalls sell almost the same choices: pork, chicken, isaw, chicken feet (adidas), soriso (longanisa), and hotdog. Barbecue is paired with pusô (rice wrapped in woven coconut leaf pouch). Some stores sell fish and lugaw (rice porridge). Barbecue stalls set up tables and monoblock chairs for their customers.


The barbecue stalls are located on the northern end of Dipolog Sunset Boulevard, near the Santa Cruz Marker. They are open from 6:00pm to 5:00am of the following day, and are closed on Mondays.
