Isla Sugbu Seafood City Paluto All You Can

My husband was back in Cebu last week, last year he stayed in Cebu City Marriott Hotel but this hotel is now under renovation and soon it will be named Seda Hotel. And because of that, he stayed at Cebu Parklane International Hotel. During their first night, they ate dinner at Isla Sugbu Seafood City and while waiting for their order, he sent me some pictures. And I asked myself, “Bakit hindi ko alam ito?” How I wish I knew this restaurant when we went to Cebu almost two years ago.

Cebu is famous for Sutukil and they have a lot of restaurants that offer this 3-way style of cooking seafood. Su for sugba (Grill), Tu for tuwa (stew) and Kil for kilaw (raw seafood with vinegar). During our trip, we ate at The Original AA BBQ in Lahug branch but you need to pay per order but Isla Sugbu Seafood City is “Paluto All You Can”. So you can enjoy unlimited and fresh seafood for P749.

This restaurant reminds me of our experience in Kota Kinabalu Malaysia pero itong sa Cebu, level-up. Just look at the interiors and may aircon pa. According to my husband, from the entrance, there are already wait-staffs who will guide you. This staff will usher you to the aquarium and counter, where you can select and choose your seafood. Instruct them on how do you want to cook your food, grill, stew or kilaw?

The meat, vegetables, fresh and live fish, and crustacean vary per day, it depends on their catch. Yes, the restaurant does not only offer seafood, you can also eat meat, vegetables, and dessert. Drinks, desserts and premium seafood like tiger and bamboo lobsters, mud and king crabs, sea mantis, grouper, and stonefish are charged separately.

The food will be served on your table, make sure that you can finish your order because if there are leftovers, you need to pay P1450. All paluto meals cannot be taken out. My husband was busy eating his meal so I have no more pictures of the cooked meals aside from the shrimp.

If you are not a fan of buffet meals, you can also choose from their SUTUKIL packages. They offer 4 Sutukil Packages, from Package A to Package D, each package includes appetizer, dish of the day and rice platter for P1600 nett good for 4 persons.

This Seafood City restaurant is walking distance from Cebu Parklane International Hotel. Hubby said na worth it daw sa price so  If ever I will go back to Cebu, I will definitely try this restaurant.

  1. I love places with paluto. Usually its beside a palengke so there's this certain smell. THis place in Cebu looks very clean and not kadiri. Sosyal tingnan. :)

    1. True, yung amoy palengke din ang ayaw ko pero this one, parang fine-dining. ;)

  2. This is very sulit for Php749. Imagine na lang how much ang kilo ng shrimp and crabs. I'd love to try this when we went back to Cebu.

    1. Sana nga P749 forever ang rate kaso promo price lang siya, P1200 daw original price.

  3. Gustong gusto ko yung mga paluto na restaurant kaya nga love na love ko din ung mga Korean resto kasi they let you cook your food. Madame din talagang kainan sa Cebu noh? Hindi ko nasubukan mga yan nung namasyal kame jan nuon.

    1. Yes, masarap din magluto then eat, medyo napapahinga ka pa sa pagkain, hehehe!. We have reason to go back to Cebu. :)

  4. I love buffets! At yun pala ang ibig sabihin ng Sutukil. I haven't been to Cebu parang gusto ko na pumunta haha. If I show this to my husband for sure magccrave siya, he likes seafood so much. Thanks for sharing this, take note ko to.

    1. Ako rin, nagcrave bigla ko sa buffet, nawala sa isip ko na diet ako. hehehe!

  5. Waaaah ang sarap naman ng hipon na yan. it was enough for me to imagine all the other food available. I'm a big seafood eater, so ubos yan sa kin for sure!

    1. Worth it na noh? Sa mahal ng hipon sa market, dito unlimited shrimp. :)

  6. ay grabe mommy!!! kakatakam!!! I will definitely keep this in mind para sa Cebu trip namin! My family will definitely love it here. Yung mga hipon grabe!!! Great idea rin ng Eat-All-You-Can :) Thanks for sharing!
