My Take on ......*Matutina's*

There are a lot of restaurant to stop, to try, and to experience when you travel up north.  From Bulacan all the way up to Ilocos Norte.  Ask someone who enjoys eating and travelling they will recommend Matutina’s Seafood Restaurant in Pangasinan.   No one should miss this dining place.  Having three branches proved that they really are catering to the increasing number of loyal travelers, locals and foodies.  Indulging with the freshest seafood with a reasonable price partnered with excellent service.

Their Annex 3 in Urdaneta is very accessible, located beside the high way near the city.  They have three dining areas, one main hall, another pavilion for functions and an Al Fresco dining surrounded by plants and trees.  By the time we got to the place I saw the garden type area and I was enticed to have our late lunch, but I cannot stand the scorching heat so we were directed to the pavilion.  We prefer the main hall but it was being set up for dinner.  The ventilation in the pavilion is bad as they were only using one Air conditioning unit. Not minding the sweat dripping down my face and back, we ordered one of their signature dish, and a couple more.

Bangus na Inihaw  Php 130.00
Named as one of the Best Inihaw na Bangus in the country.  You can ask your server to have it boneless.  The meat is flaky and you can taste the freshness of the fish.

Lechon Kawali  Php 150.00
Deep fried Pork Liempo cut into pieces.  The liempo has right amount of fat and meat.

Ensaladang Mangga  Php 80.00
Salad of Green Mango, Onion, Tomato and Salted Egg with Bagoong Alamang.  Best paired with grilled seafood or pork.

Steamed Veggies Php 90.00
Steamed Okra, Ampalaya and Talong.  Dipped in Bagoong na Isda with the Griiled Bangus is one superb meal.  For a more delectable experience used your hands and feel the food when eating.  As for dessert, they have Bukayo.  I like it, because it has more buko strips than sugar and the level of sweetness is perfect plus it’s free!

For this sumptuous meal with rice and a pitcher of Iced Tea, our tab is only Php 630.00!  Big serving for a very affordable price.

Over all Experience:

Super Duper Okei  =) =) =) (Price, Food, Service, Location)

 Location: Mac Arthur Highway, Nancayasan, Urdaneta City, Pangasinan
