Seafood Anyone?

At Dampa (Paranaque City, Manila)

Sinigang sa Miso
Tulya (shells) with Butter and Garlic

Crabs and Seaweed Salad
Lobsters with Chili sauce

Nothing like San Miguel Beer and Seafood Dinner
Fried King Prawns


The good thing about eating at Dampa is that you get to buy your own fresh seafood at the wetmarket and bring them to the restaurants around and they will cook them the way you like it. We spent 3200 pesos (51 euro) for 1,2 k lobster, 1 k squid, 1,5 k fish, 1 k shrimps, 1 k shells, 2 k crabs. We paid the restaurant 1200 (19 euro) pesos for cooking everything and for the rice and salad. I say, it is money well spent for.

  1. You bet I would. Sana magkasabay tayoung umuwi πŸ™‚ we’ll surely more have fun.

  2. Hei Beng, Dampa is located along Sucat Road Paranaque City. If you are coming from NAIA, just follow Sucat Road (to the South). After 10 to 15 minutes driving, you will find a Dampa on your right side. You will see a place with a cluster of small restaurants and a fish market. Beside it, is Boracay (same as Dampa).
    I think you will enjoy Dampa as much as I did. πŸ™‚

  3. Al,

    Where is Dampa located? Heard it for the first time ;). I am curious to know…may balak lang palang pumunta. Hmmm, naglalaway ako sa pagkain.

    Have a pleasant weekend.

  4. Sha, we can plan our filipino vacation if you like. πŸ™‚ Maybe you can show me Cebu Island? I will show you some places in Luzon.

    Charles, πŸ™‚ I told you! Anyway, try to fry the daing when nobody is home and use a lot of Xit after cooking.

  5. oic thats cool! Thanks for the daing ate ann! I cooked some of it immediately at home and my god the whole house stinks. heheheheh I opened all the doors and windows at once

  6. heard about this dampa
    but we have a similar expercience in Cebu
    this money you paid is worth every penny Al
    with these delish food here

    PS pala i have not been to Romblon
    sama tayo next time
    i can see pwede nga tayo mag sama hahaha

  7. Charles, even if we are here in norway, there are some alternatives — like the norwegian king crabs is really good and you can cook it the filipino way.

    Ethel, naparami talaga ang kain ko nun. Hindi na nga makadighay sa dai ng nakain. hehe

    Owen, there are other places like Dampa now. Boracay (very near Dampa)and Seaside (the original in Baclaran)

    Rachel, I think by the time you were in Batangas, I was already in Norway. Too bad, di tayo nagabot.

    Renny, it is quite an idea isn’t it? I might make a business plan and take you as one of my investors. LOL

    Sidney, I think it is a brillant idea too. I think that this idea would click in Europe especially in Norway since we have so much seafood here.

  8. You lived like God in France ! πŸ™‚
    Sounds good. You buy your own food and let the restaurant cook it. Maybe a concept we should introduce in Europe!

  9. What a creative way of doing business. With al this see food available right out in the fjord by Oslo, we aught to start our own Al! Delicious pics too Al πŸ™‚ – thanks for sharing!

  10. sarap! i’ll ho for the crabs hehehe..
