Inside Nalka Seafood Restaurant

We were instantly called by the signage in front of the restaurant, it is a red rectangle laser beam on the sand. So, we checked it out and went inside.

Their menu is posted just outside the restaurant, so customers can browse before deciing to eat here.

First-floor seating is available, but we were informed that the view from their second floor is better. So, off we go and head to the second floor.

Ohh yes!!! Their second floor looks nicer!

Guests can enjoy the sea view.

We looked around and decided to seat here in this spot because it has the best sea view.

We know the sunset is over and it is getting dark, but we still want the view. Haha

There are two tables here, good for 4 persons each, but if you are a group of 8 to 10, you can take the whole area.

So we finally sat down and enjoyed the view.

How to Order from Nalka Seafood Restaurant?

Nalka Seafood Restaurant’s buffet style is like this, you order then they cook. With this style, food is served freshly cooked, and guests do not have to stand up and get their food.

We also like their style because the Filipino trait of “takaw tingin” can be avoided. We usually get food from the buffet table because we thought that we are still hungry, but we are actually almost full.

 

Ordering here is simple, just choose anything from the menu, and write it on the paper that will be provided. Then, give the paper to the staff so they can give it to their kitchen and prepare your food.

Nalka Seafood Restaurant - Buffet Paluto - Where to eat in Boracay - Happy and Busy Travels

Please order one at a time, or one plate at a time to avoid waste. There is also a “No leftover” policy in the restaurant.

 

While waiting you can take your photos inside, their interior is also good. I should’ve worn my dress ’cause it looks good together with the restaurant.

Here are some of the dishes that we ordered from the restaurant. By the way, we went here twice, so we have a comparison on the consistency of the dishes. Some of the pictures were taken at night and during the day.

Fish Dishes

Grilled Yellowfin Tuna

I am not a fan of fish, but this one is an exception. The sauce and the grilled tuna complemented each other, it has a little bit of sweetness and spiciness on it. I actually ate a lot of this dish.

Grilled Tanigue

This one is a classic grilled fish.

Sinuglaw na Tanigue

I also like this one because I like Kinilaw na Isda (ceviche) and pork.

Shrimp Dishes

I like their Shrimp dishes because they remove the poop shoot in every shrimp, and the skin can be easily taken out in every Shrimp. This means the Shrimp is fresh and properly cooked.

This is the spicy version, but you can also order the non-spicy soup. I like how they serve a little bit of soup only because I can easily get full from the soup.

Happy and Busy’s Smileys for Nalka Seafood Restaurant

Overall, Busy and I had a blast both our first and second visit. I am actually not a seafood lover, but whenever I am in this restaurant I eat a lot of seafood because it tastes so good. We also like their buffet style because it is easier for the guests, plus there is no build-up of people on the buffet table.
