Native chicken at Tatoy's is in every visitor's must-eat list. But there's more. I had my eyes fixed on oysters the minute we booked this trip. At P40 (less than US $1) per bowl filled with more than a dozen oysters, how can you go wrong?
These seafood meals I take seriously. I don't eat oysters in Manila unless they're harvested and flown in from these islands. Plus I don't intend to miss out on the local Managat fish here -- sinigang (in sour broth), tinapa (smoked) or grilled.
Aaaah..... This is what I love best. Beats eating oysters at $1 a piece elsewhere! Or fresh plump shrimps. And steamed is best for these two. I love the taste of the sea with every shell. Frankly, I can devour 2 dozens oysters in one sitting.
Next time you're in Iloilo, hail a cab (or take a jeepney ride) to go to Tatoy's. Should cost you only about P150 (under US$4) for a delicious seafood meal.
