We passed by this eatery as they had an assortment of fresh seafood on view and many people ordering. Sadly we weren't too hungry so we ordered a half kilo of shrimp and a plate of scallops (for two people). We were asked whether we would like them cooked with chili or with garlic and butter and unanimously agreed on the latter (although I heard a woman after us requesting for "ribosado" style, which is shrimp dipped in batter and deep fried). We were given a number and went inside to be seated.
A waiter promptly came to take drink orders and we ordered rice. We decided on the calamansi juice, which we were warned was already pre-bottled vs. fresh, which turned out to be balanced between the juice and sweetener added -- as long as I can taste the calamansi! we have tried other pre-bottle calamansi juice which was way too sweet or watered down. Our meal came with a bowl of vegetable "Sinigang": lovely tangy and clean flavors - it was a perfect offset to the buttery goodness of the seafood to come.
Our shrimps and scallops arrived and at first glance it didn't look like I expected but the taste was like an explosion of butter and garlic. Very rich and flavorful and the shrimp was perfectly cooked and very meaty. The scallops were a bit small but I loved the taste of the char from the grill. All of course were quite fresh and it was enough to leave us both comfortably full.
It is a no-frills eatery but very efficient and the waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. I will be back next time and with a bigger appetite!
