  • 10 Fintastic Seafood Restaurants to Give a Go Around the Metro
  • Surrounded by large bodies of water, the Philippines is not only an ideal place for swimming and diving but also a good place to try various kinds of seafood.

    Here’s a list of some of the restaurants specializing in seafood perfect for those on a meatless diet or those craving for a fresh round of seafood:


    What better way to start the list than with a classic? Ask anyone for a good seafood place in the metro, and Dampa would most likely be the first answer you’ll get. Dampa gives diners a chance to shop for seafood from their own wet market and lets them decide how they want it cooked.
