The Hobbits are, of course, those merry little people that are prominent in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. However, hobbits are no longer just figments of one man’s imagination. They are alive and well, and ready to serve diners at what is perhaps the most unique restaurant on the island of Boracay, the Hobbit House.
Description of the Cuisine/ Specialties and Price Range
The Hobbit House serves a wide variety of dishes, but their specialties are their Home Made Pizzas. They have 5 different types of pizzas: Hawaiian, Meat Eaters, Seafoods, Vegetarian, and 3 Cheeses. Also, they offer an array of delicacies from all over the world. For instance, they serve Japanese dishes such as Tempura, and Mexican dishes such as Burritos, Chimi Changas, Enchilada, Fajitas, Quesadilla, and Tacos. Not to neglect local cuisine, they also serve Filipino dishes such as Bicol Express, Chicken Pork Adobo, Chicken Tinola, Kare-Kare, Menudo and Sinigang. But what Hobbit House really takes pride in is its selection of 100 kinds of imported beers from all over the globe. They offer brews from Asian countries like China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Thailand, to European countries such as Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy, all the way to the continents of Africa and Australia, and of course, the United States. In addition, they also have quite an impressive and extensive collection of wines and spirits.
Description of the Restaurant
True to its name, Hobbit House boasts of a staff made up entirely of midgets, dubbed the Smallest Waiters in the World. In accordance with the “Lord of the Rings” theme, scenes and characters from the books are depicted on murals on the restaurant’s exterior and paintings adorning its interior. Hobbit House has also been a favorite venue for performances of Pinoy folk and rock music.
Location, Nearby Hotels and Bars
Hobbit House Boracay is situated within the grounds of D Mall D Boracay, also known as DMall. This puts it in very close proximity to the many establishments in the area, especially hotels such as the Sun Village Beachfront Resort, the Lorenzo Grand Villa Resort, and the Island Jewel Inn. And if Hobbit House’s bewildering array of beers and liquor is somehow not enough, and one decides to take in a little after-dinner partying, one can go over to nearby bars like the Bom Bom Bar, the Juice Bar, and Rumbas.
Other Relevant Info
The original Hobbit House was opened in Malate in 1973. It was founded by a college professor and Peace Corps volunteer named Jim Turner, who had indeed been inspired by Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.” Since then, its popularity has led to the opening of its Boracay branch.
