Sungayan Grill: The Taste of Bolinao

Sungayan Grill is the most recommended restaurant when you search for Bolinao, Pangasinan so I included this in our itinerary. After our Bolinao Marine Laboratory visit, we went to Sungayan Grill for early lunch. 



Sungayan Grill is a floating restaurant in Balingasay River, this river is one of the cleanest rivers in the country. It is really good to know that we still have clean river. 



When I first saw the restaurant, I remember our Loboc-Loay River Cruise experience in Bohol. The only difference is the food is not buffet style but I think they also offer packages so you can experience river cruise while eating.



But since we are only three persons it would be practical to just eat at the floating restaurant. Good thing that there is available table for us but unfortunately we are not on the side of the river. But I’m still thankful because some guests were no longer accommodated. 



We browsed the menu and the staff immediately informed us that sungayan fish is not available. Too bad we cannot taste the sungayan fish so my husband ordered Sinigang na Malaga P150 and Grilled Liempo P130.



After several minutes, we’re still waiting for our order and some guests were already complaining na kanina pa sila don and tagal ng order. The staff went to our table and asked us if we are still willing to wait, mga 30 minutes pa daw kasi bago maserve food. We said yes, since nandun na rin naman kami, we ordered Halo-Halo P40 para may makain na kami. 



The restaurant was really packed at that time, I’m not sure if this is always the scenario. It was long weekend + summer vacation and at the same time GMA staffs were there. I’m not sure from what show but I saw them from St James Parish hanggang Enchanted Cave. (Same kami itinerary) hehehe! 



Finally, our order was served. The serving was big enough for three persons. Price is very affordable too, our bill is less than P500. 



We enjoyed our food and I do recommend that you visit this restaurant if you are in Bolinao, Pangasinan. But make sure you are not really hungry because it took them almost 1 hour to serve our food.

  3. Hi Michelle!! Funny because our family friend just invited us to go to Bolinao this weekend. Unfortunately, we cannot go kasi I am scheduled to do Biopsy :( But, now that I have read this article, I am having second thoughts with my medical procedure.. hehehe..;) Anyhow, the price and the food look enticing talaga. Of course, the water, too! Belated, Happy Mother's Day!

    1. Thanks! Aside from this restaurant, there are more tourist spots that you can explore. Good luck on deciding, Bolinao vs Biopsy. :)

  11. The place looks nice. That's a great deal since we all know that we can rarely eat here in the Metro for less than Php 500 for 2 persons, haha.
