Tacloban Royal Seafoods Restaurant
We all enjoyed the meal and were glad we went!
By James from Seattle, USA
This restaurant is located deep in downtown Tacloban. So, be sure to give yourself a little extra time to find a place to park.
When you first walk in, there are some large tanks of fish and crabs to your left. The fish are for decoration but the crabs are for your dining pleasure.
The food here is good, not great. The portions are fairly large. We ordered some soup that was supposed to feed four, it looked like it would feed an entire barangay!
I ordered some curry chicken. I expected to receive the normal Filipino coconut milk-based curry. Instead, it was more Chinese style, but a little greasy. Still, I enjoyed it. I like both styles very much.
Prices seem about right. Not too high, not too low. Of course, the live crab is fairly expensive. You pay by the kilo for it. When you order the dish, you select your victim ... um, meal ... they weigh it and charge you accordingly.
My father ordered the ginger crab. He said it was very good.
We ordered some siopao (Filipino-style steamed humbao). Normally I don't care for the fillings here, but even I liked these.
The restaurant was a little smoky for my taste. But, I'm a lifelong non-smoker so I'm rather sensitive to that kind of thing.
We all enjoyed the meal and were glad we went. Recommended.
