But I've already had a change of heart, as we grow older, these are foods that makes you want for more as they are much healthier to eat. Still a bit rich but better than pork or beef.
Last August, a group of us who went to Iloilo for a leisure trip and one thing that was definitely set in the itinerary was to go here at Breakthrough Restaurant. A must. And we did, for dinner. We rode a cab coming from our hotel in Jalandoni St. and it just cost us around 120-130pesos only.
The place was not jampacked as it was already 8pm, and a good lot of the diners has already filed out of the place, fully satisfied, I presume.
So here goes our dining choices:
|Buttered Garlic Scallops|
|"Diwal" clams, a.k.a. Angel Wings.. just look at their shape and color|
|Loved this! Buttered Shrimps|
|Our last order..mild Chili Crabs for 1 kilo|
Diwal clams, a.k.a. "Angel Wings" - This is the first time I have tasted this and I liked it. I like the cheesy part of the sauce and the meat was firm and it sure looks funny. 7pcs of this was priced at P400 (if I remember correctly). Expensive, right? But it's a delicacy and it's seasonal. It's not easy to find so I'm mighty glad that it was available that night.

Chili Crabs - We ordered 1 kilo! Whew! But we sure did finish all of it. After all, just a piece alone would've cost so much here in Manila. Like the Buttered Shrimps, the sauce alone is good to eat on its own. Just put it on top of the rice and it's good to go. We just requested for mild chili flavor as we have a child, and me, on this gastronomic dining experience.
The best thing that night..all of these dishes, including the 2 plates of rice and our drinks (soda and beer), was just priced at P1,600! The price will definitely be doubled or tripled if it were here in Manila. But the most happy out of all of us was me because my companions, the Reyes family (Ryan, Mayen & Blythe) said that it's on them. Yey!
Happy night it is! Thank you so much, again! =)
