Talk about fresh, yummy, and affordable seafood! The garlic clams were my favorite, closely following the shrimp in Alavar sauce. The kuracha was really good in the alavar sauce also!

If you visit Zamboanga one of these days, make sure to make this restaurant as your first stop in the city! 128077128077128077

Wanna have the best crabs and curacha in the country and get dirty at the same time? Then try this restaurant. Alavar sauce for the win!

*ctto (picture) so that you'll have an idea how curacha look like.

we dined here yesterday for lunch to try their famous curacha and sure they should really be famous for that. curacha is a type of deep sea crab, unlike the usual crab we have this type has more compartment to it making it harder to open. the meal was very satisfying (oh well it should be because the place is kinda pricy). the large order of curacha costs around P850, the taste is very rich since its made of crab fat (talangka), its also sweet and thick, the sauce alone is enough for a viand.

we also had clam soup which i found salty but on the positive side i think this is the first time that i wanted to eat clams more (am not really fond of them). they were like some kind of candy that when bursts it coats your mouth with sure goodness.

aside from the curacha we had a grilled fish belly (sorry i dont know what the fish is but its definitely not a salmon), another pricy one coz the portion shown in the picture costs P350, for a provincial price its not wallet friendly but I can say that its worth it. every bite gives you a consistent taste and that is yumminess! a must try i say.

and for the drinks i had this zamboanga white, a lychee shake with milk and corn (i just presume coz there were bits on the shake), it was good there was a balance between the lychee and the corn, both goes along well and is enriched with the help of the milk.

the place in general is good, they have 3 rooms for rent for P800 a day that is good for two. all over its clean, staffs are accommodating. the owner displayed his collection of birds and fishes for the restaurant's attraction and they really are attractive. so overall the place was nice.
