Seafood Feast at Aling Tonya's

Date of visit: September 18, 2011

The boyfriend is back! I can now get to post about food other than my daddy's specialties! Haha!

He actually came home two weeks ago and we spent most of the time together. We've been dining in a lot of restaurants for the past few weeks and it's just now that I got the time to write about our very first food trip together, after 1 year and a month of being apart. :)

After hearing mass last Sunday, September 18, and after having lunch with my family, I headed next to Mark's house at Caloocan to fetch his mom. We then went straight to the airport to catch Mark's arrival at 4:25PM. We were caught up in traffic and got a little late so Mark was already at the waiting area when we arrived. Mark was so hungry and requested that we have our dinner at the seaside restaurants in Macapagal boulevard.

We arrived at the area after around a 15-minute drive. We headed immediately to the wet market to shop for our food. Mark wanted to have fish so his mom bought a kilo of blue marlin steak slices. She also bought a kilo of clams, a kilo of squid, 2 kilo of prawns.

We went around the area to look for a restaurant who can cook for us and we ended up at Aling Tonya's.

We had all our seafood cooked and then our seafood feast began. :) The clam soup was served first. This dish was just like my dad's. The soup was really yummy and the clams were cooked just right. A perfect starter for our hungry stomachs.

Clam Soup
Seashells: Sinabawan - Php 120.00 (1 kilo), Php 80.00 (1/2 kilo)

Mark was still conscious about his figure so he decided to have his fish grilled. Mark started devouring it the moment it was served. This dish was so delish!

Grilled Blue Marlin
Fish: Inihaw - Php 120.00 (1 kilo), Php 80.00 (1/2 kilo)

The squids were made into Calamares. There's nothing really special with this dish. I commend Aling Tonya's though because the calamares were tender. The dish also came with a mayo-garlic dip.

Calamares
Squid: Calamares - Php 180.00 (1 kilo), Php 120.00 (1/2 kilo)

A kilo of prawns were made into Shrimp Tempura and the other kilo was cooked in butter with garlic. The grilled fish and tempura were what I ate the most because I just had my braces adjusted. I so love the shrimp tempura! The dip that came with it made the dish more delectable.

Shrimp: Tempura - Php 250.00 (1 kilo), Php 180.00 (1/2 kilo)

This next dish was also okay. The shrimps were a little overcooked though because it was hard to peel off the shells.

Shrimps in Butter with Garlic
Sugpo/Hipon/Swahe: Php 180.00 (1 kilo), Php 140.00 (1/2 kilo)

Overall, we enjoyed our seafood feast. The fish and tempura were a hit for us.

But of course, we weren't able to consume everything so we had the left overs wrapped.

Mark's mom must have missed his son so much that she ordered a lot of food! She even got this chocolate cake for his baby boy. :) We then went to Duty Free Fiesta Mall to shop for some stuff and chocolates.

Welcome home Mark! I'm really glad that you're back! :D
