Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus Product Review: Freshest Bounty from the Sea

Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus

I have always worked as a freelancer because it was a personal decision on my part to be with my family and to manage the family household closely. By that I mean, I take care of Kyle, my nephew whom I had raised as my own child personally. I personally plan, market and choose the food that I cook for the rest of the week. Of course, I get a little help from my mom, but modesty aside, I do better than her at the kitchen.

Cooking for me is like my way of expressing my love for my family. I’m not saying I’m such a good cook because there have been many instances where I end up cooking a hit or a miss. What I’m proud however is that at least I can whip up a nice dish once in a while. I am happy when I make a meal worth remembering as well as when I am able to cook up something delicious and healthy for my family.

Kyle is already in his teens (he’s turning 17) while my mom is already a senior citizen who happens to have some heart issues so I make sure they eat well. I’m very partial in serving them fish to provide them with Omega 3—which was proven to help prevent certain heart diseases.

Thumbs Up Sizzling Stuffed Grilled Squid
We sat inside Thumbs Up but there are al fresco dining options if you feel like eating outside. Despite its location on a street off a bustling road, it is happy to note that the atmosphere was a little quieter, which we found really nice. The food was delicious and served piping hot, mostly on sizzling plates. If you're looking for a delicious appetizer or a satisfying meal, you need not look further than Thumbs Up's stuffed grilled squid! Marinated in a sweet and tangy vinaigrette and then stuffed with onions and tomatoes, it is then grilled over hot coals to juicy and flavorful perfection.
