This is the best place I have eaten at so far.

Definitely order the Scallop Fettuccini Alfredo and Chili Garlic Shrimp Roll. They are to die for! 128525

Shrimp Marinara is good too!

LU has always been in the map. Known for it's beaches and grape farms, TBH, it wasn't much of a destination back then. Until the country was hit by the surfing bug, people went cray cray about surfing! Everyone suddenly had an interest to surf, like for reals! San Juan, LU, more particularly brgy. Urbiztondo became the IT place. All the Baes in the Metro go extra during long weekends. They bring the fam to the beach, slay everyday with their beach buns and fake surfin' until they make it! LOL
It's all clean fun tho.

With the strong waves in the sea, came the need for the foodie scene to grow. But there was a challenge. LU is not Manila. They needed to keep it 100% with the food concepts. Staying true to laid back, by the beach thingy because #beachislife #vitaminsea

As a millennial mom, I needed to be woke man! Off to LU with the fambam, we could have went somewhere peaceful but this momma got serious fomo! With a foodie hit list on hand, the beach and the waves were second prio LOL

Off to El Union, we then spotted Great Gamble Seafood Shack! Hubby was sold right away! I can't even! He had a great convo with the owner and got us 2x Quarter Pound Crab Roll. For 240Php, this Crab Roll is LIT! 100%! You won't get any crab sticks here as extender, it's purely crab meat that's been bought fresh from the market in the morning, cooked and flaked. Tossed in a light mayo with salt and pepper, a splash of lemon. It's so good AF!

They also have Crab Burger for those looking for something cheaper. Taking inspo from the Crab Roll, this dude sports a crab meat packed patty that has been deep fried. Sandwiched in a toasted burger bun, it's dressed with a light mayo and crisp lettuce.

Aside from these bombs that we tried, they also sell Scallop Roll. I badly wanted to try this but it got sold out right away! If ever you want to try both - crab and scallop rolls - you can just ask for their Combo Roll!

Wish they'll include Lobster Roll in their menu soon!

First reviewer! 127881

We visited El Union Coffee after our side trip to Luna, La Union. We were quite hungry and parched from the midday heat! We saw this small pop-up stall at the back of El Union Coffee serving 3 items: Crab Roll, Scallop Roll and Crab Pasta. I was quite curious what the rolls were... Was it a maki roll? Or something else? Of course the first thing that popped into my mind was something Japanese 128514 To my surprise, the roll was bread!

When I asked them about their dishes, the guy told me they only had one roll left for the day and the crab pasta. So we got the Scallop Roll (PHP 220) and the Crab Pasta (PHP 180).

The Scallop Roll was pretty good! I was sold when I heard "3/4-pounder scallops" 128525 I love scallops. And the way they cooked it was superb! 10084️ Enjoyed biting into the roll. 128077🏼

The Crab Pasta was served with a slice of lemon. The lemon really added a twist to the taste of the dish. It was refreshing and light. The pasta itself wasn't very oily despite it being oil based. Real crab meat!! It's tough to pick crab meat but it was good that I didn't bite into any shell 128076🏼

It was a great meal 10084️ Kept me full till late dinner time. 128518
