A surprisingly good find in the D'Talipapa area. Boracay's version of Dampa in Manila - a bit more expensive (the market prices but this maybe because I didnt haggle) but the way they cooked the food was waaaay better than how Dampa prepared them.

And if you compare the amount of food we got for the price to the other restaurants by the beach, this is cheaper. 128513

I will definitely keep on going back.

Just dont go here during peak hours: 11-1pm or 5-7pm as you will be waiting for your food for about an hour. Hehe.

We had our lunch here several times and even some for dinner mainly because their cooking service outputs and prices were really good. I recall we wanted to have the paluto at Aqua fresh but realized that it wasn't that worth it due to some factors that my friends mentioned. So we hunt for other choices nearby and ended up at Natalia's Kusina.

We bought the meat first from the wet market. The price was quite steep compared to the wet markets here in Manila, so we tried to bargain the prices like asking one more piece of crab for the same price or a total deduction to the price. You really have to have the mad skills to be successful in this "field". Lol.

So after getting your meat, they'll ask you how do you want it to be cooked. They will measure it again at their weighing scale and then bring it in the kitchen. Expect to wait for about 15-20 minutes depending on the dish of your choice.

From day 2 to day 4; we had Grilled Tilapia, Sinigang na Hipon, Crabs with Chili sauce, Hilabos na Shrimp, Grilled Liempo, Grilled Squid, Stir-fry Oysters, Sinigang na Lapu-lapu fish and Crabs in Garlic butter. Everything we had was perfectly good and delicious, especially the crabs and the shrimps.

They charged Php 20,00 for rice per cup and they don't have service charge unless seated upstairs that was airconditioned. Friendly staff, delicious food, reasonably priced and excellent service, so giving this place a 5-star rating! 128076128076128076

Calamari, buttered shrimp, adobong kangkong, baked oysters were good. The chopseuy was very salty though! It was almost inedible. Quite pricey service for paluto but it was expected. The market prices were also double or triple compared to manila market.

This is Boracay's version of Seaside and Dampa where you need to do the "marketing" of seafood first then you go to the restaurant to have them cooked the way you want them.

We had crabs and prawns in butter garlic sauce, calamari, and baked scallops. TO. DIE. FOR.

If you're going to Boracay, the walk to D'Talipapa (or P30.00 tricycle ride from Station 1) is worth it than ordering seafood from the restaurants along the Boracay strip. It would cost you double or triple the price there compared to D'Talipapa.

2nd day in a row here. Genuine seafood market and palutuan. Half kilo prawns for 200, crabs for 250 and just have them cook it with garlic butter sauce? Kaboom! And i'm not even a seafood person kind of guy. Deadly! All for 1000 bucks!

A thousand years late post! 

Our trip to Boracay last Vday was our very first complete family outing. Hence, a memorable one. (Tissue pls. Lol)

Anyways, we had dinner in D'Talipapa. Mamang really enjoyed choosing seafoods. After a series of bargaining, she picked crabs and shrimps. Nom. Nom. Nom.

Whenever we are in Bora or anywhere in Panay, their seafoods are a must. The freshness of the meat is far different from those that are in Dampa / Seaside.

We have to wait for around 15-20 minutes just to have a table. All of the "Paluto" were packed ! Good thing, the crew in-charge for grilling was our kababayan. He accommodated us very well and even gave us a good discount! 

As to food, the crabs were cooked on a sweet chili sauce and the shrimps on buttered garlic.

The sweet chili sauce was okay, just okay. We enjoyed the freshness of the meat than the sauce.

The buttered garlic shrimp, on the other hand, is outstanding! Almost the same yumminess with that of my mother's version (I'm a proud daughter Haha). But really, I loved it. We did love it.

My Papang, who doesn't have any affection on food, said for the first time, "Masarap to. Malalasahan mo talaga ang cheese." Okay na sana e, kaso cheese. But I'm so happy he appreciated it explicitly. That only means, it wasssss good, beyond good!

The price was right as well.

Five stars well deserved! 
