You can bargain fresh seafood (lobster, fish, prawns, squids etc) and go to cooking service restaurant nearby to cook (went to fti restaurant twice!).

The first day I went there I bought the seafood from the market myself. I obviously got chopped. I read a blog recommending stall #29 for cooking service. No regret ! I went back the next day and this time I asked a waiter named Prince to help me buy the seafood and is super cheap ! So be smart... More

Step in for first hand and fresh seafood experience at this markey. See the sea creatures alive and cook for you with affordable price. We tried our first meal of some sea urchins and sea snails. Cooked them at nearby restaurants/paluto service. Also you could bring home some pasalubongs/souvenirs from Philippines such as dried Mango seche (super delicious), tshirts, magnets,... More

This place is a must just for the experience!!! We bought prawns and crabs and had it cooked for us!!! The mall is dirty and unclean but plenty of seafood sellers to choose from!!! If your an animal lover there's lots of stray cats and dogs hanging around so it may break your heart like it did mine :(

The best place to buy souvenir items of the island and to shop for fresh seafood and have it cooked. The fresh seafood market is surrounded by cooking service restos. Seafood is quite costly compared to Manila but mostly fresh. If there are many of you in a group, it might be cheaper to eat here. Souvenir items are cheaper... More

found it on my 3rd on island. Of two malls/markets ( D'mall & D'talipapa) the 2nd one is more "local". Restaurants are less fancy but definitely cheaper. This is the spot where You can experience some local cooking. There's centrally located fish/seafood market surrounded by restaurants which will prepare purchased "goodies" for You. Some of the stuff they sell is... More
