at Fiesta Seafoods Foodhaus
-Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place (57) (see also TERRP)
I’ve been to Fiesta Seafoods Foodhaus before. In fact, it was the site of my very first food court experience in the Philippines, on my second trip here (see 3.243 Seafood Platter + Pancit Bihon + Ihaw Pusit).
While the meal back then had seemed okay, I found the experience this time to be awful. The seafood bits on the skewer were all dried out and flavorless. The sprouts were bitter. The sauce over the rice tasted like margarine. Ugh. Ironically, in that prior post, I noted that my satisfaction was probably due to my inexperience with the local cuisine and that the food would not be considered good by local standards. Actually, I think that the locals actually like this kind of food.
