Celian Seafoods Restaurant in Guimaras
Celian Seafoods Restaurant is a newly opened food spot that is already generating a lot of buzz because of its fresh seafood selection and nifty food preparation.
The owner of Celian Seafoods saw the need for more restaurants to cater to the growing number of tourists in Guimaras, which is now being established as the “Bike Paradise of the Philippines.” So, the restaurant was opened to serve as a simple stopover for some refreshments and snacks.
Now, Celian Seafoods Restaurant is offering the best of native Guimaras cuisine, using only locally-sourced ingredients, from seafood to poultry. They also have pala-pala or paluto style, which means that you can choose among the fresh seafood displayed at the restaurant and request for a specific dish you want with it. The cost for pala-pala is computed per 100 grams.
You can start off your meal with a fresh, spicy and pleasantly tangy serving of Tangigue (Mackerel) Kinilaw.
