Filipinos are known for being food lovers. Our rich history has introduced us to different types of cuisines that we have eventually come to enjoy up to this day. It’s no wonder there’s no shortage of restaurants and the food industry is still thriving.
Since our country is made up of so many islands, our love for seafood is likewise unprecedented. We jump at the first chance we get when it comes to eating fresh seafood and are always on the lookout for establishments serving delicious seafood. This is probably the first time that some of us have heard of Choobi Choobi, the popular restaurant chain that originated in Cebu and which proudly serves juicy seafood in exciting, flavorful ways. The good news is that it’s now in Bacolod.
Choobi Choobi is owned by Stan Tanchan who first began exporting his shrimps to many restaurants around the world. He then decided to put up Choobi Choobi out of his love for food and his desire to give Filipinos export-quality shrimps at low prices. Aside from shrimps, which is their specialty, they have other delectable Filipino dishes.
Shrimp in a Bag (One-pound Php 350 / Half-pound Php 185), a pound of shrimps served in a bag, but cooked in a variety of ways and oozes with their savory butter garlic sauce.
Stan’s Fried Black Pepper Shrimp (Php 380), crispy shrimp cooked in Stan’s special black pepper flavoring.
Choobi Pata (Large Php 405), a Choobi Choobi signature dish that’s delectably crunchy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside.
Stuffed Grilled Squid (Medium Php 195 / Large Php 215), mouth-watering squid stuffed with black rice.
Pork Barbecue (Php 24 per stick), a grilled smokey pork barbecue smothered in sweet barbecue sauce.
Lola Pepang’s Chicken (Php 300), a hearty family fried chicken recipe.
Chilean Mussels in a Bag (Php 280), a fresh bag of Chilean Mussels cooked in the flavor of your choice. Available flavors: Tao Si Sauce, Spicy Gata (coconut milk and spices), Steamed Garlic, and Whole Choobang (Cajun sauce).
They also have refreshments like Fresh Pineapple Organic Wheatgrass, Fresh Pineapple Organic Kale, and Lychee Organic Kale Shake.
Choobi Choobi’s tagline “lingaw lingaw kaon” stands for enjoying a fresh and unique dining experience with great company. They believe in giving their customers a fresh and unique food experience and because of that they acquired the services of celebrity endorser Erich Gonzales who epitomizes the qualities of their brand.
Choobi Choobi has a lot going for them. Aside from their flagship store in Panay Avenue, Quezon City, they’ll open two new branches at SM City Manila and SM Southmall, as well as in SM Dasmariñas, SM Sta. Rose, SM Baliwag, and Ayala Mall in Legaspi City.
Visit Choobi Choobi at any of their branches located in Capitol, Mabolo, Mactan Newton, SM NRA, SM Seaside, SM Manila, Panay Avenue (Quezon City), SM Iloilo, SM Bacolod, SM Davao, Limketkai CDO and Centrio Ayala Mall.
Feel free to dine with your loved ones at their 15th branch which just opened in Bacolod City last March 6, 2016. It’s located at the restaurant strip, North Wing of SM City Bacolod.
