Blackbeard's Seafood Island!: Taking Seafood Bonding to the Extreme!

Saturday, December 08, 2012

A stones throw away from my neighborhood is this new mall called Robinson's Magnolia which part of the Robinson's Mall chain. There are lots of new restaurants out there and it was perfect timing that I got to be at one favorite hangout place I frequent to in Eastwood, but this time they've got a new branch in the mall... now a lot of people can get a taste of Blackbeard's Seafood Island!

Pinoy Nachos - Crispy Wonton, Salsa and smothered with White Cream. An alternative to Corn Nachos this is indeed the better lovely Pinoy version of it. You must try this at the start of your meal. It's good pica-pica or as a conversation piece so you can talk with friends or family while in BSI!

Garlic Chicharon Bulaklak - It's a notch higher than the ordinary Chicharon Bulaklak but definitley a bang for the buck thing to look for and pair with below zero beer.

Fiesta Bicolandia - Clams in Coconut water broth, Pork Barbecue, Eggplant Salad, Bicol Express, Crab in Coconut Milk, Gabi Leaves in Coconut Milk, Grilled Tilapia and Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste. This is part of their Boodle Feasts, there's more!

Davao Gulf - Chicken Wing Inasal, Pork Barbecue, Grilled Baby Squid, Steamed Shrimps, Grilled Tuna meat, Grilled Imbao, Shrimp and Pomelo Salad, Seaweed Salad, Young Jackfruit in Coconut Milk and Vinegar, Salted Eggs, Grilled Tomates, Kalkag Rice (probably fried rice with Crablet roe), Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste and Crisy Dulong Rice. It's like Davao ruhsing to shore with a boat. Perfect for big families and barkada!

Tali Beach - Grilled Chicken Inasal, Big Barbecue, Steamed White Shrimps, Grilled Tilapia, Grilled Tahong, Crabs, Grilled Squid, Grilled Tomatoes, Seaweed, Green mangoes, Watermelon and Steamed Rice! THE END. LOL! That was a long list but honestly this is a feast for the eyes. You'll be tempted to take photos of it the whole day! What a presentation! :)

Boracay's Feast - San Mig clams, Grilled Liempo, Chicken Adobo on Coconut Milk, Grilled Squid, Grilled Tilapia, Grilled Eggplant, Okra, Grilled Pineapple and Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste. Perfect with Iced Tea imagining you are in a white beach somewhere! LOL!

Mount Apo - Clams in Buco Juice Broth, Steamed Crabs, Grilled Liempo, Grilled Chicken in Coconut Milk, Grilled Squid, Steamed Shrimps, Fried Tilapia, Law-Uy, Kinilaw na Tanigue, Balbakwa, Seaweed Salad with Crispy Dried Anchovies and Salted Fish Rice. You should try this one up for size because you'll see it's a big serving. Please invite me over when you're eating hehe.

Proud Matriarch of Seafood Island group and the Chef showing us that each Boodle feast was designed to match a province in the Philippines and even some of their creations were shaped like them too. They take pride in making it that way so both Filipinos and foreigners take a short culture lesson without even knowing it.

Dagupan's Pride - Deep Fried Boneless Bangus, Pork Barbecue, Steamed White Shrimps, Grilled Mussels, Grilled Eggplant, Okra, Camote Tops, Green Mango Salad,Crispy Liempo and Bagoong Rice. Truly a representation of that region. This would be a little expensive if eaten on other restaurants pala carte but if you order it on a boodle you'll get it way on a lower price plus enjoy it with the rest of the family. A very communal experience indeed!

Fried Ice Cream - For dessert we had this Fried Ice Cream. It's amazing how they were able to put the Vanilla Ice Cream Inside this breading. Add some chocolate sauce and it's a done deal!

Buko Pandan - Not to sweet, just right to end the meal. Refreshing and quite a favorite of the kids. You should get this too!

There's more where this came from. You should try and visit one of their branches nationwide. I on the other hand will be visiting this one in Robinson's Magnolia. It's a quaint place with fab interior and a lot of seats you could dine in with friends and family. It's time to bond with them over food and what ingenious way to do just that but by doing Seafood Bonding to the EXTREME with Seafood Island's Boodle Feasts!
