No pics since we were in a hurry.
Their mango shake is to die for!
We had this big sizzling plate with shrimps, tuna, buttered clams (it was big, relative to what we have in Manila, and so good), squid and a mysterious chunk of meat - we discovered later on that it was tuna roe! For me, it was like ox brain -rich and melts on your mouth.

Fast, fresh, budget-friendly restaurant in Davao City. Don't forget to try their Adobong Buntot ng Tuna and Imbao soup!

Say hello to one of the tails displayed as you enter one of the branches of Yellow Fin. Their Adobong Buntot ng Tuna is their best seller, according to the lady server. And true enough, almost all the tables dining that night had the adobong buntot. So we ordered one, along side tuna laing, steamed salmon wrapped in lumpia wrapper and of course our favorite sabaw ng Sinigang.
The adobo was good. And for its price, the serving was just right. However, my boyfriend and I agreed that it doesn't really tastes like adobo. Maybe we are used to having pork or sitaw or chicken for adobo, ad that they have a different way of preparing their famous dish.
The durian shake was ok. I just didn't enjoy the weird after taste. (And the smell of your breath after sipping your drink) haha

And I don't mean that in a good way.
I've always seen a lot of people dining at Yellow Fin. I also looked it up on looloo and found two 5-star reviews in their other branch. To satisfy my curiosity, I asked my parents if we could have lunch at their F. Torres branch.
From the place, to the service, to the food, everything was horrible.
The place is like a greenhouse. There are big glass windows. But there's no ventilation. And the place isn't soundproofed, so all the voices of the customers bounce and echo.
We were handed their menu, and it was tattered and wrinkled.
We still ordered anyway, but we should have taken that sign and left the place.
Chicken adobo was bland and cold.
Their tuna fin, while not oily and fishy-smelling, was drenched in soy sauce that was mixed with a LOT of water. What the?!
Their halaan was just ok. The mangrove clams (imbaw) were clean, but the soup wasn't very flavorful.
I've never had food this bad.
And I don't get why a lot of people still visit this place.
