heard about this place Hong Kong master cook and it’s still packed with people this is the first time I’ve ever brought seafood into a restaurant before this place is packed so I think you bring the seafood to this counter here and then I get I guess some sort of cooking magic happens I want whatever that is yeah that looks crazy that looks like it’s filled with chilies right there you just wait everything I brought and in there as he’s weighing it he’s asking me how I would like the fish prepared where would where the seafood prepared just one how do you guys cook it salad yeah is there are

that low tender I want to go beauties with some of the skin what I’m loving about this this whole fish it’s kind of like the fish tempura so the fish is fried the skin obviously battered it was crunchy and they put into the spicy nummy rock so that the bitter in the skins it’s just so dump all this just delightfully spicy elixir so every bite you get up the fish discuss so much of that irresistible draw all up in here the string is not like overly soggy it still has a semblance of Tunis to it this fish is just beyond tender and it got some great veggies in here that that also soak

give this a try you see all that delicious yolk just running just coursing through every inch of this crab leg zip that meat into the salty egg sauce there’s one of my favorite ways to eat crab the piece of my pie salted a guy don’t knock it till you try it it’s like liquid salty egg and solidify salty egg I think it’s pretty good they Noakes my favorite part oh yeah all right you guys ready to open this thing up oh there’s the tamale gotta have some that tamale get some salty egg sauce oh by the way I look at this guy’s we’re gone terribly mashup it’s flawless holy cow I’m pretty sure this

yolk out here [Music] [Applause] this has been one of the greatest seafood meals I’ve ever had this day in general has been incredible I go to the seafood market he just randomly we need three awesome guys that invites me back home for dinner which was absolutely spectacular and I end up making three awesome friends come here grabbed a bunch of different seafood this restaurant cooked it up one of the freshest tastiest seafood pieces I’ve ever partaken in so if you are ever in Manila I highly highly recommend coming here and doing what I just did also guys I just want to note that what I did today meeting just like three random strangers if you’re going back for dinner at their place that’s not something I recommend you guys do all as you feel 100% safe and comfortable I mean that’s especially something you shouldn’t do if you’re traveling alone but for us we ended up talking to these gentlemen we felt pretty good about them we took some precautions and pleasures three of us so we felt pretty comfortable going with them and that ended up being a fantastic experience but by no means uh don’t don’t do what we did make sure you engage every single situation for yourself and if you do decide to go hang out with some locals we’re with some new friends like I said make sure you’re 100% comfortable with the entire situation with that said I just want to give another shout out to my new friends Ali Mohammed and Ramon’s you guys are just the most friendly most awesome most hospitable gentleman I have met on the strip and thank you so much for having us over and sharing a meal with us that was by far some of the best rice and salmon I’ve ever had and as always guys I put the information for this location in my description box below thank you all so much for watching
