A Culinary Gem Amidst Masskara Mayhem: Our Delicious Discovery at Diamond Seafood Restaurant

The Masskara Festival in Bacolod City is a whirlwind of colors, music, and dancing. The city comes alive with celebrations, drawing thousands of locals and tourists. However, behind the festive façade, navigating the city during this period can be a real challenge, with streets closed for various events and roads jam-packed with festivalgoers. On a recent trip, my friends Lei Lani, CG Hisona, Mark Canieso, and I found ourselves facing these logistical hurdles. As our group is known for seeking out hidden culinary treasures, the quest for good food was high on our list. We love a hearty meal, and while we’re not picky about dining in fancy establishments, we do have a discerning palate. We may not be food connoisseurs, but we know good and flavorful food when we taste it.

A Tale of Culinary Exploration | The Four Hungry Adventurers

We set out with the plan to explore the vibrant streets of Bacolod during Masskara, with Lei Lani and CG Hisona leaving their cars at my place to mitigate the traffic situation. Opting for a taxi ride to reach our destination, we hoped to avoid the gridlock. Engiemar was already waiting for us, though communication was a challenge due to the internet disruptions. The traffic barely inched forward, and as we neared our destination, our hunger grew.

With the roads packed with people and cars at a virtual standstill, we were worried about finding a dining spot to sit and savor a satisfying meal. Our group, composed of Mark Canieso, CG Hisona, Lei Lani Dusaban, and myself, decided to take a chance on a restaurant that had been on our radar for some time but had eluded us until now – Diamond Seafood Restaurant.

A Feast Fit for Festival-Goers | Diamond Seafood Restaurant

We walked into the restaurant and immediately felt the anticipation in the air. As passionate food enthusiasts, our group loves a good meal, and we were excited to try out Diamond Seafood Restaurant, especially because none of us had dined there before. The restaurant specializes in Chinese cuisine, and true to the reputation of this type of cuisine, the servings were generous, to say the least.

We ordered an array of dishes to satisfy our rumbling tummies:

Yangchow Fried Rice: The aroma of the fragrant fried rice, generously studded with prawns and fresh vegetables, was enough to whet our appetites. Each forkful was a delicious fusion of flavors and textures, leaving us wanting more.

Hot and Sour Soup: This classic Chinese soup was a splendid start to our meal. Piping hot and brimming with contrasting sweet and spicy notes, it invigorated our taste buds for what was to come.

Buttered Chicken: The buttered chicken was a revelation – crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and bathed in a subtly sweet and savory sauce. It quickly became a crowd favorite among our group.

Crabmeat Foo Yong: The crabmeat foo yong was a masterpiece in itself. The opulent combination of crabmeat and fluffy egg, enveloped in a luscious, savory sauce, was nothing short of a culinary masterpiece.

The setting is casual and cozy, with just enough tables to create an intimate atmosphere. The waitstaff, sporting bright yellow uniforms, was both numerous and friendly, ensuring that we felt well taken care of.
