Co Jordan Banugs and Talaba Eatery list of Menu
This seafood eatery offers many options to choose from, their specialty is their milkfish(bangus) and oyster (talaba). When I looked at the menu, I was a bit overwhelmed with the many seafood options, so I asked what their best sellers were and of course, they recommended their oysters. Since I was not fond of eating raw oysters, they said they’ll half-cook them by steaming.
Aside from ordering their main oyster dish, I got 2 pork barbeque sticks and a classic Coca-cola. You can also opt for the veggie Chopsuey or Special Pansit Guisado. You can also check their other beverages and fruit shakes.
And finally, if you’ve ever opted for fishing and have caught some fresh ones, you can ask their head cook to either grill or have it fried for your preference.
They also sell fresh fish or oysters for takeout that’s already cleaned and ready to go, perfect if you’re planning to cook it on your own. You may also get buy of their sweet delights, fruits, peanuts and etc.
Half-Cooked (Steamed Oysters) are the Bomb!
I recalled when I had my first raw oyster, I didn’t appreciate it at that time cause all I could taste was seawater, and it’s just a piece of meat that slides down your throat. I wanted to try them raw, but I was worried I’d have the same feeling when I had it a decade ago- a gulp of oyster meat with salty seawater as flavor.
However, the staff suggested having it steamed halfway through to enjoy the savory and sweetness of the oyster. And to my surprise, it was different from what I had expected since they were so delicious and flavorful. It wasn’t salty at all and I could taste its natural flavor, and adding some lime to give it a good sour-ey and tangy taste made me want to order more.
