Boracay Chronicles 5: D'Talipapa - Plato Paluto

After all the beach activities, time to satisfy the tummies, right?  Time to enjoy the bounties of the sea - seafood!!! We decided to head out to D'Talipapa.  One can buy anything you want in the market then have a restaurant cook it for you.  My mom and her friends did the marketing, while I went ahead and did my window shopping. 

Here are some of the seafood (everything was so good, fresh and a bit expensive haha).  I do not have photos of what they looked like after they were cooked because everyone was so hungry that I did not even have a chance to take photos :(

Some shell (which they sauteed)

Shrimp (sinigang)

Oysters (steamed?/boiled?)

Fish (sweet and sour)

Lobster and crabs (steamed)

Plato Paluto

Our experience would have been good if not for the super slow service.  We had to wait for 45 minutes for the first viand to be cooked.  Food came in batches with a 15 minute waiting period in between.  Mind you, the restaurant was not full.  There were only about 2-3 families there.  When our bill came up, the amount for the cooking service was even higher compared to the marketing bill.  The food was cooked simply, no garnishing and did not even require much ingredients.  We did not even have extra rice.  No drinks as we all had bottled water/gatorade with us.  Needless to say, we will not return here.  We will just charge it up to experience and then try other restaurants next time.
