SEAFOOD ALL-YOU-CAN has finally arrived here in Manila! Yes, the famous Paluto All You Can from Cebu is already here in Metro Manila and it’s taking over the city, one tummy at a time. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be telling you more about this UNLIMITED Seafood restaurant and our very own EATSperience during our first-ever visit last month. Yup, we visited last month but since we were really busy with so many things, we weren’t able to write about our EATSperience right away. So sorry about that, hehe! If you love seafood and can’t get enough of it, this EATSperience is definitely for you! Keep on reading to find out more about this NEW McKinley Hill EATS – Paluto All You Can at Isla Sugbu Seafood City, enjoy!!!
Paluto All You Can at Isla Sugbu Seafood City!
Isla Sugbu Seafood City is located at the 2nd floor of Venice Grand Canal Mall in McKinley Hill. This is the first branch of Isla Sugbu Seafood City outside Cebu and we are very glad to finally have it here in Manila! Imagine, UNLIMITED Seafood for such a reasonable price.
The “Market” inside Isla Sugbu Seafood City! This is where all the fresh seafood and produce are. There were guides when we went and they did a great job suggesting various seafood and how to best enjoy it. Make sure to ask for assistance, okay?
Here’s a video of what we EATSperienced at Isla Sugbu Seafood City! Take a look around and see what’s waiting for you. The Paluto All You Can is now priced at Php 888 per person until the end of February. However, its original price is at Php 1,300 per person. Make sure to ask about all the inclusive seafood though, because there are premium items available and are billed on top of the usual Paluto All You Can rate.
Just look for one of their guides in blue when you need suggestions on what kinds of seafood to try! They’re very nice and knowledgeable.
After all the “Seafood Shopping”, you can watch their cooks and chefs in action through this huge glass panel that leads to their kitchen.
Sinigang na Salmon Belly sa Miso
There’s no better way to start a seafood meal than having a hot bowl of soup. Sinigang soup to be specific. The level of sourness was just right for us and heaps of sweet salmon belly filled our bowls. Definitely a good starter that of course, we paired with rice!
These Suahe/Shrimps are included in the UNLI Paluto and it’s always great with Butter and Garlic! What’s your favorite shrimp dish?
Butter Garlic Suahe
Butter Garlic suahe or shrimps has always been a top favorite in the EATS family whenever we have a seafood feast. And Isla Sugbu’s butter garlic suahe is one for the books. The suahe absorbed the flavor really well and the shells were super crispy that we just ate it as well. No parts wasted, right? Hehe!
Alimasag? These are also included in the UNLI Paluto! Recommended cooking style for these babies are Salted Egg and Black Pepper sauces. You will surely enjoy munching on these tasty sea creatures!
Fresh Squid all you can? We had these local squid Calamares style and it was THE BOMB! Probably the BEST CALAMARES we’ve ever had.
This was one of our favorites in our first-ever Isla Sugbu EATSperience! Super light and crispy tempura-like batter and really fresh and sweet squid. Awesome stuff, Seafood City!
If you don’t wanna drown in seafood, they also have Pork Belly to be grilled or cooked whatever way you want. Sometimes, they have chicken, too!
Grilled BBQ Liempo
If there’s a seafood feast, there has to be grilled pork too! A personal preference for the EATS family. Juicy and tender pork belly slices perfect with their sweet soy sauce based dipping sauce.
Sweet and Sour Fish (can be any fish you want, they have lots of different kinds!)
We loved how the fish was perfectly cooked. Crunchy and crispy skin with a super tender flesh. The sweet and sour sauce was good too.
Scallops with Broccoli
We were stunned with how much scallops was on the plate. We honestly expected more broccoli than scallops, but we were wrong. A simple yet really tasty dish.
Cheesy Baked Scallops
Another dish that is usually present when we have a seafood feast—Baked scallops! We personally eat it with the shell but Isla Sugbu made it easy for their diners to eat it by taking off the shell. We indeed stuffed ourselves with these cheesy and creamy baked scallops.
Seafood Fried Rice
Instead of plain rice, we tried their seafood fried rice as this was a recommendation, and it didn’t disappoint. Flavorful fried rice that was a perfect to almost all the dishes that we ordered.
Isla Sugbu Seafood City had Mud Crabs at Php 100 per 100 grams during our visit. Its price will most likely go up and down depending on the market price. They also have lobsters and curacha also marked as premium items so availing them will be on top of the usual all you can eat rate.
Live fish are also available. Some are included in the unlimited seafood rate and some are not. Please do check with your server or guide when you go shopping just to be sure, okay? So if you are in the mood for some seafood feast, head on over to Venice Grand Canal and try out Isla Sugbu. Big families and group of friends will surely enjoy dining here. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations, ’till next time!
