Mazu Seaside Diner

I have never been to this part of  CCP before. Surprised that per owner, this Seaside Complex has been open since a year ago.

There are several restaurants in the venue with a view of the bay for good measure. Construction is frenetic near the water foreshadowing more exciting brands opening very soon.

A couple of weeks ago, with some select foodies, I had the opportunity to  take a sneak peek via an invite for lunch at Mazu Seaside Diner.

Yes Mazu  the goddess of the sea no less,  beckoned and we can not help but heed her call...

.French Beans with Salted Egg
Medium P480 Large P620

Loved the crunch and  the salted egg flavor on this one. Chef managed to retain the  crunch of the vegetable . I loved the contrast between the salted egg and the  sweetness of the French beans

Salt and Pepper Shrimp
Medium P650 Large P1150

These crustaceans have always been a favorite of the family. Mazu deep fried these creatures to a crisp so that it was a joy munching on them  shell and all.  I particularly liked the head

Buttered Chicken
Medium P350 Large P550
I just started with one small piece and pretty soon I was munching on these  like it was popcorn.
Adobong Pusit
Medium P550 Large P1100
The rich black color from the squid ink mesmerized. You will need cups of rice for this

Overall, with a seating capacity of 260 plus an additional 50 outside, Mazu is perfect for  huge parties and events. It is a multi level venue with  3 function rooms in the mezzanine and another 3 downstairs.

"Paluto" or please cook,  is the name of the game in this part of CCP Complex called Seaside Village. Echoing the concept of  Dampa sans the "going-to-market" part, seafood is the star of the show.

Mazu  however  veered  away from the ubiquitous and did the a la carte method instead (at least to us)

Among the dishes served  that day, the fried  shrimps , French beans and Buttered chicken were most memorable. I was hoping to have some crabs too . Alas they were not available. 

The price range was reasonable considering that dishes came in for sharing portions.

There were also lunch sets that were very affordable at P175 up.

Great view, spacious venue, good food,  reasonable price. What's not to like?

Definitely returning to try their crabs next time.
