A Culinary Reunion at Palawud Resto Grill

Our recent gathering at Palawud Resto Grill marked a long-awaited reunion, considering our hectic schedules. CG Hisona graciously treated us to a delightful meal, an offer we eagerly accepted. Nestled in San Patrivi Blvd Banago Rd, Bacolod City, Palawud Resto Grill had been a beloved spot for us, although I did not write about it. Our previous experience ordering the salu-salu meal (boodle fight meal) left us unsatisfied, hence the absence of a blog post. Nevertheless, the restaurant’s vibrant ambiance, coupled with its reputation for serving fresh seafood, always beckoned us back. Enhancing its appeal was the expansive parking area with a guard, ensuring a hassle-free experience for guests. Particularly enchanting at night, the restaurant offered a view of the sea that created a refreshing ambiance. We strategically selected a table near the shoreline, providing us with a front-row seat to the mesmerizing performance of the fire dancers, which added an exciting element to our dining experience.

Delightful Dining Choices at Palawud Resto Grill

As we settled in, the tantalizing aroma of sizzling seafood filled the air, heightening our anticipation. Engiemar Tupas, CG Hisona, Mark Canieso, and I eagerly perused the menu, each of us craving a different dish. CG Hisona was particularly eager for a hot meal, while I yearned for the adobong pusit with its flavorful black ink. Placing our orders, which included fish sinigang, sizzling bangus, buttered shrimp, and my personal favorite, adobong pusit, the dishes arrived promptly, each offering a delightful symphony of flavors that surpassed our expectations.

An Explosion of Flavors at Palawud Resto Grill

Our meal at Palawud Resto Grill was nothing short of a culinary delight, starting with the fish sinigang. The broth was rich and flavorful, with just the right balance of sourness from the batwan fruit. The tender chunks of fish soaked up the delicious broth, making each spoonful a comforting experience. Next, the adobong pusit arrived, and its aroma alone was enticing. The perfectly cooked squid was not too chewy but still firm enough to hold its shape. The sauce, a harmonious blend of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and black ink, created a savory and slightly sweet flavor profile that was simply divine. The buttered shrimp were a revelation, with each piece bursting with freshness and flavor. The plump and juicy shrimp paired perfectly with the buttery sauce, adding a rich and indulgent touch to the meal. Finally, the sizzling bangus, though slightly bland, was still a satisfying dish, with its crispy skin and tender flesh complementing the tangy soy sauce provided on the side.

Entertainment Under the Stars at Palawud Resto Grill

As we dined, we were entertained by the lively performance of the fire dancers, their graceful movements mesmerizing us. The singers who performed alternately with the dancers added to the festive atmosphere of the restaurant. Despite the strong kerosene smell from the fire dancers, we were enthralled by the performance and the overall ambiance of the restaurant, especially at night, as the sea view created a refreshing feeling.
