This place has gone down the drain. They ruined the seafood that we bought (not fresh to begin with, they were iced). We had sinigang na panga that is too sour for my taste and I'm known to make great sinigang. The sweet and chili sugpo is almost identical to the garlic butter shrimp...they were both sauced too much, almost like a watery consistently and they didn't even taste as sweet chili or garlic butter. I am so disappointed!

Glad to be back to the first and Original Dampa Seafood Market and Paluto along NAIA Ave in Paranaque. In the late '70s and early '80s the place were just a seafood night market "Paranaque Fresh Food Terminal."This was the original name of the seafood market in Paranaque that opens at around 4pm 'til 10pm and sometimes 12 midnight. There was only a small open nipa hut they call Dampa that offers beer, distilled spirits and other alcoholic drinks grilled and kilawin (raw) fish, squid, clams, oyster, shrimps, crabs or any catch from the coastal bay of Parañaque and Cavite. Men mostly are the "parokyanos" (customers) who drops to Dampa for have their inuman (drinking session) or what they refer to as the "happy hour" after work. Yuppies, executives and even laborers are the regular customers of Dampa. Until ihaw-ihaw and paluto (grill and cooked) has become the "IN" thing. That then Dampa became famous for seafood ihaw-ihaw and Paluto. Sooner, food entrepreneurs started to build their restaurants along the road leading to the market. The style and technique here is to buy the seafoods directly at the market and have it cooked it for you by any of the restaurants around the market. With this technique you can save more peso and also enjoy the experience of shopping in a seafood market. It can also be the restaurant staff who'll do the marketing for you. Just place your order and wait to be served. Two more branches of Dampa opened in Paranaque in early '90s. One located in BF Homes Subd. and the other in Better Living Subd. I'm not just sure if these two Dampa inside these residential areas still exists. There are now more Dampa around Metro Manila. And i've also tried the paluto in Dampa Farmer's Market in Cubao, Dampa MOA along the bay and even Dampa in Macapagal Blvd in Pasay. And just recently our family dined at 'D Original Dampa (Paranaque). It's my birthday treat! As usual we ordered my children's favorite grilled squid and adobong pusit, pork inihaw, shrimp in buttered chili sauce and sinigang sa miso na ulo ng maya-maya. hahaha...we were all delighted with this simple birthday dinner. we had fun and left the place with a "Happy Tummy" 128515128525128522128521
