Trinity Ihaw-Ihaw and Food House is located within Seaside Macapagal (otherwise known as Seafood Paluto Restaurants) along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay City.

Within Seaside Macapagal, there’s a market and standard product rates are updated regularly. The prices change depending on what’s in season.

You can choose to go to the market and buy the seafood you want cooked and select your restaurant of choice. The restaurant will cook it for you and add extra ingredients like spices, sauces and vegetables to go with the dish. You’ll just have to pay the cooking charge. Or, you can just go straight to the restaurant and trust them to buy the seafood you want.

Among the restaurants there, I chose Trinity Ihaw-Ihaw and Food House.

For starters, you can order the Crispy Kangkong. It’s deep-fried water spinach in batter with a special dip.

My favorite had to be their Baked Tahong with Cheese. This is Asian green mussel baked with cheesy goodness. It’s also slightly sweet. I recommend you request this cooked with more garlic, just in case you’re like me. I love garlic.

Buttered Sugpo is also a must. Tiger prawns cooked with butter, garlic and other spices. You can even taste the sweetness of the prawns indicating how fresh they are. Prawns are a bit expensive though.

I also enjoyed their Ulo ng Maya-Maya sa Miso. That’s the head of a red snapper cooked in tamarind broth with miso. Miso is fermented soybeans with salt and mold. I love miso soup, more so when served as sinigang.

On the side, you can have the Green Mango Salad. That’s diced green mangoes, onions and tomatoes with their special bagoong. Bagoong is a condiment made of fermented shrimps and to make this taste even better it can be cooked in garlic, spices and some sugar. This was how I had their green mango salad, I got a lot of green mangoes, some onions and tomatoes, and a spoon of bagoong. I mixed them all together. I used this mix with the fish from the sinigang and had rice that with rice. Yummy.

It’s not just to food and service I admire about Trinity Ihaw-Ihaw and Food House. It’s owned by the Lozada family. They make sure that they get their priorities right. They put God first. They have prayer meetings with their staff. I think that’s just awesome. Not just food for the tummy, but more importantly, for the soul. This helps encourage proper attitude and values among the staff, which most likely can result into honesty and warm service.

    Hi there!

    This restaurant is featured currently on Metrodeal with an all you can eat buffet price of P275 per person. Would you have an idea if they will have a food station serving all food and peaple will just grab what they want to eat, or will customers still order the food a la carte (paluto style) but with unlimited servings? I am thinking of buying vouchers and would like to know how they would serve the food. Since you are a friend of the owners, maybe you can enlighten me.

    Thanks in advance!
