Actions really do speak louder than words. This is the case with Epic Boracay. Beachfront dining in this side of Aklan will never be the same with its Epicurean Beach Cuisine that's inspired by the tropics and designed to lure the sybarite with nothing but awesome food. Your daytime dining on the island from brunch to sunset is expertly handled by Epic's culinary team. What's more, the dining concept is extended as a beach club experience by night. In between, diners can expect nothing but fusion of robust flavors from the Orient and the West.

Man At The Helm

At the helm of the gustatory revelry is Chef Carlo Miguel who's known for the world-class, delicious gloss of Opus, Draft Gastropub and Beso Cucina Vinoteka. With more than 18 years of professional experience, the 39-year old culinary expert describes the Epicurean Beach Cuisine as "relaxed, fun, and always very tasty." Case in point: my recent memorable sampling of options from his straightforward beach menu. As someone who got a taste of what it's like, I can ascertain that the coastal cuisine is not only inventive. It also matches the beach vibe that has made the island a sought-after destination by both local and foreign tourists.

Appetizing Treats

For starters, I had the long-time restaurant favorite called Epic Popcorn Shrimps. Best consumed in the morning after a whole night of partying, these golden brown nuggets of breaded fried shrimp can definitely rid the vacationer of any lingering hangover or whatever's left of it. Make sure to dip it into its accompanying sweet chili sauce to satiate your pre-lunch craving. Two more recommended treats to commence your delicious island meal are the tangy Fish Taco (beer-battered fish fillet with coleslaw and sriracha aioli) and the filling Breakfast Burrito (bacon, eggs, sausages, roasted tomatoes and potato hash in a wrap).

chicken, the resto's BBQs come in three sticks each and served with java rice and pickled vegetables."

Heavyweight Options

The heavyweight option to consider is the Epic Baby Back Ribs which is considered by many Boracay vacationers as the best on the island for its smoky and saucy taste. However, if it's Chef Carlo's favorite that you're after, then the barbecue specials are what you should be considering. Available in pork and chicken, the restaurant's barbecues come in three sticks each and served with java rice and pickled vegetables. Highly recommended for sharing by two people is the Barbecue Beer Can Chicken which can definitely encourage any prevailing romance brewing between two diners. As for serious seafood lovers, they can opt for the Grilled Tiger Prawns which is served with grilled asparagus and mango salsa for that tropical boost.

Personal Favorite Dish

For my verdict of the heavyweight option to order, the Kimchi Steak is one dish that you can't pass having when you're dining at Epic Boracay. The grilled U.S. Angus steak is just one of the best that I've tasted. It went down like butter and lingered on the palate. With or without the spicy kimchi rice and fried egg, it's a treat I won't mind having more than once in a week when on long stay on the island.

Decadent Desserts

As a sweet ending to one's fulfilling meal, the desserts to try are the Epic Cheesecake (homemade with fresh mango salsa) and Banoffee Trifle (tasty layers of fresh banana, crushed grahams, chocolate and caramel custard).

Should you find yourself to be gripped by vacation listlessness when you're in Boracay, Epic's Epicurean Beach Cuisine may just be the tasty reason to revive your pursuit for a remarkable island vacation.
