It was a little after lunch time when we dined here. The place was quite packed with customers gearing up for their seafood dishes. One can opt to dine al fresco which is perfect for those late night drinks. I liked the big blackboards on its wall where one could easily see all their offers.
I know that’s not a seafood dish but it deserves some highlight here. The outer layer had the right crisp, and was evenly coated with the tangy sauce. The meat inside was juicy and good sans the paired sauce. To elevate its flavor, one could pour some sauce in.
Their calamari was crispy yet you could still taste the squid. The coating was thin enough to put the spotlight on the squid. It’s best eaten with the sauce that came with it.
And I knew I was in for a treat when this was landed on our table. With some generous heaping of crab fat or aligue sauce, this was one sweet dish. The shrimp were cooked well. You could also tell that it was fresh. I had no trouble peeling it from its shell.
And now for the main event: crabs. I’m a sucker for these crustaceans. I do enjoy the plain steamed version but I also find those with sauce in to be enjoyable. The addition of sweet chili garlic on this gave justice to the crab. The spices worked with the natural sweetness of the crustacean. Though there were tools given to de-shell it, some pieces were de-shelled already. Makes it easier to get the crab meat from its shell
Yeah…there was an additional order of these ribs. And I didn’t expect that huge slab to be served to us. Placed on a bed of potato fries, I liked the tangy taste of this. The fries weren’t that crunchy as the heat from the meat diffused it but nonetheless, it still tasted good.
From meat dishes to its specialty, seafood ones, this restaurant sure serves up good dishes to satisfy one’s palate. The dishes are pretty simple and straightforward. As my group and I got to talk with the co-owner here, he told us that they ensure the quality of the seafood here is top-notch. And it shows. They make sure that customers are not only satisfied but happy upon exiting this place. As for me, I wasn’t only happy. I was extremely happy to the point that I felt like I was in heaven. 😀
