Shopping for Sugpo at Dampa along Diosdado Macapagal Avenue.
Seafood lovers would call Diosdoda Macapagal Avenue their haven. Prior to the restaurants found along the area, there’s the famous Dampa at Paranaque City. And there was Seafood Market which is also like Dampa-style (you even have to shop also for the vegetables aside from the seafood itself). Just like any Dampa-style restaurant, the first thing that you have to do is to market for the seafood.
We shopped for “Lumot” (it’s called large squid in English), mussels, prawns, white shrimp, crabs, salmon sashimi and seaweeds.
After shopping, we went to Aling Mahsya’s restaurant to have these cooked. Of course, you have to give instructions on how you want the seafood to be cooked (we sometimes do give instructions in our favorite Fonda Windsor even, so don’t be surprised).

And after everything has been cooked, we ate all of this. 😀 The following dishes served that are not on the pictures are: Baked Mussels, Steamed Crabs, Grilled Squid and Seaweed Ensalada.
